Penang has long been an underrated destination for digital nomads. Let me give you 10 reasons why you should consider putting it on top of your bucket list!

How To Become A House-Sitter

… And never having to pay for accommodation again!

A lot of my followers and readers have been asking curious questions on my house-sitting adventures and I am happy to provide the answers in one short & comprehensive guide!

As I am writing this, I am sitting on a long wooden dining table in the winter garden of a beautiful old villa in South England. Two cute cocker spaniels lie at my feet, exhausted from the long walk we took this morning.

Vegan Food Guide to Costa Rica

Costa Rica is known worldwide for it’s delicious coffee, but when it comes to more substantial foods are vegetarians left high and dry?

By no means! I feel that Costa Rica is probably one of the easiest places to travel as a vegan. Even as a raw vegan it is fairly easy since you can always get fruit plates (oh my god the fruuuuuit), smoothies and salads.

7 Day Itinerary For Costa Rica

Costa Rica might look small on a map, but don’t fool yourself. You can’t see it all in a week. When I took my trip to this Central American gem, I knew I didn’t want to rush. “Pura Vida”, the typical Costa Rican greeting, was going to be the motto of my trip and I took it to the heart.
