Welcome to my blog!

Hi! I’m Alec, aged 27 – a Journalist from Manchester, who is currently embarking on a once in a lifetime experience by travelling to 18 countries around the world with my fiancée, Emily!

From the sandy beaches of Australia, Fiji, Indonesia, South Africa and Sri Lanka, to the beautiful landscapes of the Canadian Rockies and New Zealand, to the hustle and bustle of India, Japan, UAE and USA, not forgetting the cultural diversity of Cambodia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam in Southeast Asia, you can follow us every step of the way by reading my regular diary inserts and top tips.
