Old adventures, resurrected
Earlier this year I visited the Unesco World Heritage site of Pingyao, in the Shanxi province of China (West of Beijing). It’s a quaint pocket of cobblestones, checkers and tradition protected from the high rises and factories by a 6km ring of thick, brick wall. Walled City Hides Living History
Soon after arriving in Singapore with no job and no money, I attempted to “find myself” at a meditation retreat on St John’s Island. This was published in ANZA magazine in November, 2011.
I wouldn’t call myself a big time sports fan, but when holidays and leisure activities count as fitness, I’m in. Stories Fit for a break and Weekend activities to get you fit ran in the November issue of Singapore’s Time Out magazine.
I would have been happy with a bowl of famous clam chowder and a photograph of the Full House set but my 24 hour stint in San Francisco proved much more memorable.
While skiing in Utah last year, I was lucky enough to hit the site of Salt Lake’s Winter Olympics for the most death-defying few seconds of my life.
And here is my take on skiing amongst America’s elite in Park City, Utah
As a kid, I dreamed of visiting the celebrity hot spots of Los Angeles and Disneyland, with all my friends in tow. This year, I found myself there as an adult, alone.
Someone had to do it, and I stupidly raised my hand. Swimming with sharks really is as terrifying as it sounds.
I found more than just beaches and rollercoasters when I traveled to the Gold Coast and Tweed Valley in 2009.
