Back to basics in Guatemala

Back to basics in Guatemala

I have now found my way to my little bungalow and my language school in San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala – hoorah! Before I arrived, the school owner did tell me via email that “the bungalow is basic”. No worries, I replied, I can live in a basic way. But being confronted with the basic...
Hotel Review: HEVEN, Zipolite

Hotel Review: HEVEN, Zipolite

First of all, to call this a ‘hotel review’ is slightly misleading because the owner, Victor, prefers to think of HEVEN as apartments. Still, this doesn’t mean that you can’t use the place for short term stays and you are very welcome to pay by the night. When I arrived in Zipolite and jumped out...
Hotel Review: Punta Placer, San Agustinillo

Hotel Review: Punta Placer, San Agustinillo

The first thing to note about Punta Placer is its incredible location within San Agustinillo. San Agustinillo is one of the smaller villages set along the Oaxacan coast and is a definite “get away from it all” kind of place. At times it seemed like I had the village all to myself. When I was...
Hotel Review: Hotel Arigalan, Mazunte, Oaxaca

Hotel Review: Hotel Arigalan, Mazunte, Oaxaca

Mazunte is a small-ish beach village on the Oaxacan coast (although it’s actually larger than I expected it to be) and is a common beach destination for people who want to escape the relative madness of Puerto Escondido. Of course, Puerto Escondido isn’t mad at all, it’s simply the place along this stretch of coast...
How to find an apartment in Oaxaca

How to find an apartment in Oaxaca

I was beyond excited to move to Oaxaca earlier this year, but one thing was troubling me. Exactly how would I go about finding an apartment? I was so worried about being holed up in a hostel for weeks that I covered all bases and was able to find my dream studio apartment in just...
How I feel when I stay in a luxury hotel

How I feel when I stay in a luxury hotel

On the rare occasion that I stay in a 5 star hotel (never with my own money, I hasten to add), I feel a strange mixture of things that contradict each other. On the one hand, I definitely enjoy the luxury. Taking a bubble bath in a huge tub, putting on a fluffy dressing gown,...
Staying in Cancun: A comparison of 3 hostels

Staying in Cancun: A comparison of 3 hostels

For somebody who doesn’t like the beach, I sure have been finding myself in Cancun a lot. Why so? Because international connections from Cancun are cheaper than from other parts of the country. In October 2013, I flew from Cancun to London, in December I flew from London to Cancun, and just earlier this month...
The best hostel in Bangkok: Mile Map

The best hostel in Bangkok: Mile Map

You know how I like to go on about hating hostels so much, complaining about people having sex in the dorm room, and people looking at me like I’m an alien for going to bed at 10pm? Well, the truth is that I haven’t hated absolutely every hostel I have stayed in, and there was...
A tour of my £7 bungalow on Haad Yao, Koh Phangan.

A tour of my £7 bungalow on Haad Yao, Koh Phangan.

After leaving Koh Samui with a bitter taste in my mouth, I was keeping my fingers crossed that Koh Phangan would be more to my liking. After scouring for beaches to go to, I settled upon Haad Yao, a long stretch of beach on the north-western coast of the island. And this time, I decided...
