I know you’re already thinking it. What? She wants me to go all the way there just for the weekend? Well, maybe not literally, but Hong Kong is far and away my favourite place as a stop-over. A weekend in Hong Kong is by far better than doing the long-haul in one go between Europe [...]

Well, I am back in Hong Kong. Not only am I back in Hong Kong, seemingly my Asian home away from home, I am back blogging. And I will be doing so for much of this year, after landing possibly the best job in the world, a tour guide. I am in cold Hong Kong, [...]
There’s something very, very eerie about an empty airport. Especially an empty Amsterdam Schiphol, one of the largest airports in the world.

Greetings from Hong Kong, where Amy and I have done our darndest to dent the city’s supplies of dim sum and perfume.

I'm Caitlyn, a twenty-something Australian living in the Netherlands. Six years ago I crammed my life into a backpack affectionately called 'the Beast' and hit the road, anxious to see all the world's Olympic sites. Needless to say, I got a bit distracted along the way. Today I'm a tour guide in Europe, and blog about what I love; travel, sport and food.
In early May I'll be in the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
In late May I'll be in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece, Albania and Montenegro.
