How To Plan The Perfect Family Camping Trip in United Kingdom

It goes without saying that life was a little different during lockdown – and the experience (aside from one too many zoom meetings), was a little different for each person, there were certain things that we were all looking forward to when we were trapped indoors. For example, the majority of people across the world spent this time dreaming about travelling once again (or working through their travel bucket list).  

While international travel is now possible, changing restrictions mean that booking a holiday has never been more difficult (or confusing). However, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to drift far from home in order to have a good holiday. For example, the UK is home to some of the most stunning scenery in the world – and these natural landscapes draw in thousands of tourists each year.

Things to Do In the Dubai Desert

When you visit the Dubai desert, you’ll understand why the Arabs feel such an intense devotion towards it. The seemingly seamless desert of Dubai with its red dunes is the true home of Arabs from around the world. By experiencing the desert, you too, get to share in this legacy. So get ready for your desert safari in Dubai, to explore the fascinating contrast of virgin blue skies with red sands and to ponder its mystical silence.  Listen to the strange susurration of the granules of sand as they move with the breeze. Let the magic seep in!

Interesting Websites on Travel

Wow.  It’s been a loooong time since I posted.  Obvious reason being that I haven’t travelled this entire year, so really there’s been nothing to post about.  Even in the city, I’ve been staying at home mainly.

Anyway, I realised that sometimes I would encounter articles and posts about travel and hotels, so I wanted to keep a directory for you and for myself to keep a reference of.  Feel free to come here to find interesting articles and websites to entertain yourself whenever you’re feeling the need to be entertained.

Tai Nan Street 大南街 – the Taiwan of Hong Kong? Boutique shops, cafes, indie music, and more

I had zero intention of writing this blog post.  Even when I first stumbled across the street, the thought hadn’t crossed my mind.

After having lunch at the prominent and long established名寶石餐廳 Tiffany Restaurant, I had some spare time and wanted to head over to White Noise Records, since I was already at Prince Edward’s.  Google Maps suggested it was an 11 minute walk from where I was.

White Noise Records was one of the few record stores in Hong Kong that sold indie music, from vinyls to CDs to merchandises, featuring Japanese, American, Hong Kong local artists etc.  It used to be upstairs in an unassuming building, but apparently that’s all changed as it has relocated to Tai Nan Street.

Upon arriving to the area, a lot of boutique cafés, stores, leather shops, terrarium shops greeted me.  They stood out because of how its exterior look was far different from its adjacent shops, the newer ones being far more elegant and clean.  What used to be the “ugly duckling” was turning into a beautiful swan.
