We visited the Ben Thanh Market which is full of all different […]

My 2013 Travel Adventures

2013 has been a pretty big travel year for me. I’ve visited fourteen different countries including six brand new ones taking my total number of countries to 33. Not bad!
I began the year watching fireworks light up the sky over Edinburgh Castle surrounded by other lovely travel bloggers. We were at the beginning of a whirlwind trip around Scotland seeing all that my beloved country has to offer. Everyone adored their time in Scotland and I was like a proud mother hen showing off the best parts of my country to everyone. Shockingly for Scotland the weather even behaved and we had warm temperatures, no snow and very little rain. Thanks, Mother Nature!

I’ve just returned from a fabulous cruise with Silversea, a luxury cruise company, in Hong Kong, Vietnam and Singapore. As many of you will know I also have a cruise blog, Emma On Board, and I’ll be sharing a full and detailed report of the entire cruise on there soon but here I thought I’d share some of my favourite photos from my trip.
The trip began with me flying to Hong Kong, one of the most densely populated places in the entire world. This was the incredible view of the city from my Verandah Suite on board Silver Shadow.
