Amsterdam is one of my favourite cities (and that’s not just because of its legalisation policies!), one reason is because they really encourage cycling as the main form of transport, and there are just as many cycle lanes as there are roads and pedestrian pavements. It makes it such an easier and more fun way to get around the city and see more of the sites. Check out our blog posts on things to do in Amsterdam. 

Guatemala is a stunning country. The vibrant coloured clothes that the local people wear are so beautiful. The country is like a rawer and rougher version of the US – their public buses are old school buses from America, which they paint with amazing colours, some cover them in flower garlands and play really loud music! At every stop, street sellers get on and sell snacks and drinks. People can bring on almost anything they like to transport with them, from small children to chickens and dogs and even small pigs!

  1. How to get an extra hour in Cambodia – A top tip for any first timers who are landing in Siem Reap. Remember to sort your tourist visa out BEFORE you start queuing through customs. Don’t do what we did and waste your time by queuing for the same thing twice! I know us brits love a good que, but that was taking it too far; and turned out to be a common mistake we later saw many people make. When you get in the arrivals hall with the big buddha head, turn right and go to the visa desk before joining the que through customs.
