I did a whole heap of travelling before starting this blog, but this page will guide you through the places I’ve written about on Spin the Windrose. I’ve also written memoirs about previous travels to France and Italy.
January – February 2015
First stop was India. Beautiful, crazy, attack-on-your-senses India. After getting scammed as soon as we stepped off the plane, we visited New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Rhanthambhore, then took a train to Shimla, a bus to Amritsar, and 50+ hour sleeper train to Goa, AKA Paradise on Earth. I LOVED it.
February – March 2015
We flew from New Delhi to Bangkok, and crossed the Poipet border into Cambodia where we visited the Angkor temples, Battambang and Phnom Penh. But then our trip was cut short. We were robbed, our passports were stolen, and we decided to fly home to the UK.
April 2015 – December 2016
We were only in the UK for around 5 weeks before we were off on the next adventure. We flew to New Zealand on Working Holiday Visas, where we saved over $5,000 in Auckland in 4 months. We then bought a campervan and travelled the whole country for four months on less than $40 a day. Then, we settled in Wellington, where we decided to settle for 10 months because – put simply – we fell in love with it.
January 2017 – February 2017
March 2017 – April 2017
James and I spent a month in the gorgeous country of Sri Lanka, touring most of the Island by train, bus and tuk tuk. We explored the far North, the ancient cities, the hill country, the East, and the pristine beaches of the South.
