I secured my helmet in place and tested the brakes. I don’t know a great deal about bikes but as long as the brakes work, I am usually happy. We made our way outside the shop and clipped our water bottles onto the frames and piled on sunscreen.
Escape the crazy pace of Bangkok and head north to the charming city of Chiang Mai. The laid-back pace of life here seems at odds with the throngs of tourists visiting the city, yet it somehow manages to retain an air of calm not found in the capital.
There is never a shortage of things to see and do in the City of Love. From grand palaces and celebrated art museums to beautifully landscaped gardens and romantic walks along the Seine, Paris is teeming with opportunities for exploring. However, there is a lot more to the city than the usual suspects of Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and Sacré-Cœur so I decided to try and get off the beaten track on my latest visit to France’s eclectic capital.
While I love the hustle and bustle of cities, there is nothing like escaping from it all and getting close to nature. National Parks are always high on my list of places to visit on my travels – from stunning geological formations to dense forests to rare wildlife, national parks have it all.
The biggest island in Hong Kong also happens to be one of its most scenic. Only a ferry ride away from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, Lantau offers an alternative HK experience. The island’s twisting roads take visitors through dense forest, up mountains and past picturesque beaches and settlements.

There are some incredible bridges in all corners of the world and I’ve put together my top 5 from the ones I’ve had the pleasure of seeing first hand.
