Day 1 in Beijing – Forbidden City

February 16, 2014

After lunch it was the Forbidden City. By this time we had got to know our new friends a little better and we hadn’t really missed much at all that day which was good to hear. However, if we had arrived in Beijing when we were meant to arrive, we would also have had a […]

Malta and Valentines Day

February 16, 2014

Just thought I’d post a little about our Valentines weekend trip this year where we went to Malta. Malta is the southern most European country nearest to Africa and we were glad to escape the prolonged harsh winter in the UK. Just a weekend to wear a T-shirt was welcomed and we were so sick […]

September 9, 2013

So earlier this year, we went to Nepal to do the Everest trek. We didn’t actually make it all the way to basecamp, that would have been too ambitious! However, we did get all the way to Tengboche which is where the famous Sherpa Tenzin Norgay grew up (the’s the one who went up with […]

Kathmandu Airport and putting a Camera through the X-Ray

May 29, 2013

  My last video I made was when we were leaving Kathmandu to go home. I thought it would be interesting to leave my camera on at the airport and capture the process. The particular highlight was me leaving on the camera whilst in the X-ray machine! I wasn’t sure if it would fry my […]

Metok's Near Death Experience – Rafting in Nepal

April 29, 2013

I survived falling off a white water raft in Nepal, admittedly my most terrifying moment of my life! As I fell into the water, I lost my sunglasses and one contact lens; I crashed into the guy who fell off behind me; then hit my head on the boat and lost direction; saw white light […]

Camel Rides in Marrakech

Camel Rides in Marrakech

December 31, 2012

After the camel rides in China, Metok really wanted to do a camel ride and actually, one of the reasons why we chose Marrakech was because we could ride a camel there. However, the camel experience in Marrakech wasn’t as enjoyable as the ones in China.. still we had fun! The first video is from […]

Xmas 2012 in Marrakech, Morocco

December 28, 2012

So this year we decided to get some winter sun in Marrakech. The weather in the UK is infamous for being bad and over the winter months, it’s just horrible and depressing! We found a deal to get to Marrakech and took it… We were there for 4 days.. the temperature was between 20 and […]

Day 1 in Beijing – Arriving, Tong Ren Tang, Caterpillar Fungus and Peking Duck!

October 19, 2012

Waking up in Amsterdam, we had breakfast at the hotel and headed out to the airport. With the time that we had, it wasn’t really worth going into the city itself but also we did have some time to kill so it was figuring out what to do. We decided that we would explore the […]

China Trip but in Amsterdam

Leaving for China – Missing our Flight to China

September 29, 2012

Our journey to get us to China started on the Saturday 25th August. It was a early PM flight leaving at 5pm which meant no crazy morning wake up.. in fact, it was nice and leisurely allowing us to wake up our normal weekend time and have a decent breakfast before departing. Our journey with […]

Our China trip 2012

September 15, 2012

So we were hoping to get to Tibet this year but had a lot of difficulty because of the situation there, it finally got cancelled by the tour operator. At this stage we had already arranged for our China visa and it seemed like a waste if we didn’t use it. So, we researched online […]

Pillbug/Rollie Pollie/Rolli Puchi Insect in Kodaikanal, India

October 13, 2011

So whilst looked for new places to explore in Kodaikanal in India, we found this rather large insect at a place called Bear Shola. It goes by a few names: pillbug, rollie pollie, roly pollie, rolli puchi.. I don’t know what it is called exactly but this one was huge.. about 2 inches in length. […]

Only In India

October 7, 2011

I always bring my video camera with me wherever we go so you never know what you’ll capture. In the course of a couple of hours as we made our journey from Bangalore to Kodaikanal we saw two interesting sites which I managed to capture on my camera. Firstly a family were travelling on a […]

Videos of Go Car in Barcelona – May 2010

July 29, 2010

I’ve been going back and finding all my footage that I should have uploaded onto the site. Anyway, here we are: This video was taken just outside the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona – Metok had a sore bum (the seats are hard plastic and can be quite uncomfortable) and wanted a rest. I saw this […]

Go Car in Barcelona

June 7, 2010

We spent a few days in Barcelona and the first day we booked ourselves a little yellow car called Go Car. It’s a converted 50cc converted moped on 3 wheels and it was the best fun we had! You can get it for a whole day and it’s like having your own convertible as you […]

Doctor Fish feasting – Kenko Fish Spa in Bangalore

March 8, 2010

Right this is the video which I wanted to post online!! Hehe! This is Metok and her experience of being ‘eaten alive’ by the doctor fish!! They greedily attach themselves to her feet (obviously they sense a lot of dead skin to be chewed off!) and they go for her.. you can see how they […]

The Kenko Fish Spa in Bangalore – these fish are greedy for you!

March 8, 2010

I have another video which shows Metok being tried by the fish at the spa but it won’t make sense for those who don’t know what a Fish Spa is… So, this ┬ápost is a little taster as to what the Kenko Fish Spa is. In a nutshell, these little fish (known as doctor fish […]
