Things have been pretty quiet for me on social media over the last year as BIG THINGS are about to go down 😎 I’ve been working on a little venture of my own and plan to open up an exclusively vegan eatery and eco-living store in Havering, Essex, this summer!

The last five months have gone past in an absolute flash and I’m gutted that we’re somehow in the countdown of our very last week in Asia. I cannot express how thankful I am for how my life has turned out and wouldn’t change it for the world 🌏❤️ ... #wanderlust #travelbug #backpacking #exploring #travelling #couple #happiness #islandlife #dowehavetogohome #paradise #dreamy #perfection #gilit #gilitrawangan #lombok #indonesia #southeast #asia #ourasianadventure

Today, marks four years since @samuel_d_barber and I confessed our love for one and other after being in total denial for a quite a while 😅 we’ve made some incredible memories together and I can’t wait to make many, many more! My best friend, my gaming buddy, my travel companion, my rock and the love of my life ❤️ ... #fouryears #anniversary #bestfriend #travelbuddy #soulmate #love #soppy #happiness #sunsets #travelling

15th May 2018 marks the day that @samuel_d_barber and I earned our Open Water 20 certificates with the wonderful @roctopusdive ! 🐙 We saw such a great variety of tropical marine life and learned the invaluable skills needed to have a great time diving whilst being safe and environmentally responsible. Well chuffed! 🐟🐠🐡👌🏼 ... #openwater #openwaterdiving #diving #scuba #roctopussi #certified #sohappy #wedidgood #foreverlearning #kohtao #thailand #asia #backpacking #ourasianadventure

Day 24 of our journey took us to the dreamy little town of Pai in north west Thailand. We took a 6hr minivan ride from Chiang Mai that threw us round 762 curves on mountainous roads whilst our driver overtook on blind bends high up in the mountains whilst on his phone most of the time... thankfully, we lived to tell the tale even though we were very close to vomiting a number of times 😷 ... #iampai #glorioussunshine #rhcp #tiedye #minivan #762 #mountains #nature #freshair #travel #explore #live #backpacking #travelling #pai #thailand #asia #day24 #ourasianadventure

I must apologise for being absolutely terrible with updating my visual travel blog since about a month or so into the trip. One of the main reasons is that I found myself glued to my phone rather than actually experiencing all of the incredible sights and culture right in front of my very eyes. With just over a month left out here, we’re winding down a little and spending a little more time relaxing (hopefully ), so I’m going to try and get back into the swing of posting a couple more bits to show you some of the amazing, horrible and down-right weird things that Asia has had to offer us!

Stumbled across the freshest vegan restaurant ever! Every time an order is placed, the owner runs into her mini farm/garden, collects the ingredients for your dish and gets cooking! All of her dishes are seasonal, super fresh and beyond delicious. She even invited us to take a stroll around her family farm, which was a real treat 💕 ... #givegreenfarmhouse #localproduce #fresh #vegan #noodlesoup #rice #veggie #cuisine #familybusiness #farm #restaurant #chiangrai #thailand #asia #backpacking #travel #explore #live #day23 #ourasianadventure

I was absolutely over the moon when this lovely gentleman encouraged me to try this enchanting traditional Asian percussion instrument called an Angklung. Each note is made up of three different sized bamboo tubes per frame. They’re carved in a particular way so that when they are struck, a pitch resonates throughout, creating a beautiful calming, almost island-like sound. They’re played similarly to handbells, but originate from Indonesia (I believe ). This sweet little man taught me how to play twinkle twinkle little star like an absolute pro. We’re starting a band in the summer ✨😉 ... #angklung #traditional #instrument #percussion #bamboo #carved #music #watrongsueaten #bluetemple #chiangrai #thailand #asia #backpacking #travel #explore #live #day23 #ourasianadventure

This temple, Wat Rong Suea Ten (Blue Temple ), was visually stunning! The blue hue of the place was incredibly calming and instantly put you into a peaceful and reflective state of mind. It was a beautiful experience to say the least 💙 A must visit for anyone exploring Chiang Rai! ... #bluetemple #buddha #pray #prayer #flowers #respect #art #religion #buddhism #tradition #culture #history #chiangrai #thailand #asia #travel #explore #live #learn #day23 #ourasianadventure

Walking through the Maya Lifestyle Shopping Centre in Chiang Mai, we found the cutest little Hello Kitty doughnuts and they worked out to less than 50p each!

Last Friday, we visited the Art in Paradise 3D art gallery in Chiang Mai. It was 400B entry each, which was really quite steep, but it was a lot of fun and there was a free app you could download to make some of the artwork come to life 🎨🖌 ... #art #artwork #3D #gallery #interactive #fun #silly #paperplanes #skyline #city #artinparadise #chiangmai #thailand #asia #travel #explore #live #day17 #ourasianadventure

We begrudgingly ended up flying from Luang Prabang to Chiang Mai due to time constraints. However, it was kinda cool flying in a Turboprop aircraft for the first time! 🛩🌀 ... #turboprop #aircraft #flying #clouds #sky #travel #travelling #explore #live #laoairlines #luangprabang #chiangmai #laos #thailand #asia #day16 #ourasianadventure

Manny the Praying Mantis was saved from being trampled as we arrived at our lodge in the Laotian jungle 🍃🎋 He was absolutely awesome and seemed to love the attention! Michael taught us that their eyes are made up of loads of tubular visual receptors and the ‘pupil’ that seems to follow you around is in fact your own personal alignment to that individual tubular receptor. They also sway as they walk to mimic the swaying of leaves, so they remain hidden whilst moving and stalking prey.

We were so blessed to have the world’s most interesting and knowledge man in our little group at @elephant_village_laos His name’s Michael, he’s Canadian and one of the most interesting people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. On our mini trek back through the jungle after dinner, he gave us a lesson in jungle flora and fauna. I cannot Express how magical this experience was and it was all through potluck! The scorpions glow under UV light due to the thin hyaline layer that covers their exoskeleton. Pretty awesome stuff, but damn nature, you scary! 🦂 ... #fieldtrip #jungle #scorpion #nature #exotic #venomous #uv #glow #fluorescent #hyaline #exoskeleton #scopio #gemini #naturepuns #trekking #flora #fauna #damnnatureyouscary #luangprabang #laos #asia #backpacking #culture #ourasianadventure

We found lots of these curious little Funnel-web Spiders during our trek through the Laotian jungle. It wasn’t until afterwards when I started researching these creatures that I realised just how deadly their venom is. I definitely won’t be getting this close next time! 🕷🕸🌪 ... #spider #funnel #web #funnelwebspider #hexathelidae #arachnid #deadly #venom #venomous #exotic #nature #jungle #closeup #paws #eyes #instabug #damnnatureyouscary #luangprabang #laos #travel #explore #live #day16 #ourasianadventure

I have a much deeper respect and understanding of these incredibly majestic creatures after our trip to @elephant_village_laos 🐘 These gorgeous ladies were rescued from the intense logging industry in Laos and offered sanctuary in these grounds. The Elephant Village Sanctuary refuse to use hooks or howdahs (wooden chairs ) on the animal’s backs, but allow bareback riding which is far more comfortable for them. Some may still see this as unethical, but these are working elephants and are used in a similar way to how horses are used to herd cattle etc. Laos is known as the Land of a Thousand Elephants and these creatures will always be a part of their rich culture. Asian elephants can comfortably carry around 150kg on their backs and the sanctuary ensure that this is not exceeded. They also restrict the amount of time and the distance the elephants trek for to ensure they are never overworked. Through our experience at this beautiful sanctuary, I would recommend this place as they really do take care of their animals and they seem really happy there 💛 ... #elephant #bareback #riding #howdahfree #nature #respect #jungle #elephantvillage #sanctuary #trekking #backpacking #travel #explore #live #luangprabang #laos #asia #day15 #ourasianadventure
