Sir William Cameron mapped Cameron Highlands in 1885 and helped turned it into the oldest tourist spot in Malaysia. Famous for tea, strawberries and having many British quirks such as this mock tutor house. Now it is the perfect escape from the heat and a chance to turn back time.
"You can't buy happiness but you can buy tea and that is kind of the same thing" .. .. .. Cameron Highlands produces Malaysia distinctive boh tea which is still a family run business. If you are a tea fanatic then this is a must stop destination in Malaysia and is a great way to escape the heat! #mymalaysia
A red style post box it must surely be the UK?! . . . Actually it is the Cameron Highlands, Malaysia. This is left over from the days when it was a popular weekend retreat to escape the punishing heat of Malaysia. Now, it is a popular destination for its tea, scones and post boxes. And is one of the cheapest and easiest places to visit in Malaysia. Check out the guide on my website for everything

This little girl was kind enough to share the end of her ice cream with this dog. But sadly the dog just didn't want it despite the girl sticking the ice cream in its nose.
Bhutan is one of the most colourful countries I have visited. This is a series of prayer wheels which are used to help send positive energy into the world.
Throughout Bhutan these flags surround the landscape adding a pop of colour. They are hung up so the prayers will be blown into the wind and the wind will spread good will and compassion. Something the world needs!
Bhutan measures it's progress in Gross Domestic Happiness as the country's motto is to improve the life of the people as money is no use if everyone is unhappy. It is meant to be the happiest country in the world. whether this is true or not this lady was enjoying taking her daughter to work for the day in the market 😍
Introducing the Takin- the national animal of Bhutan. It looks like a mad experiment where a cow and goat have been combined. Apparently it is good luck to kiss one.... would you give it a kiss?!
Bhutan is the only country I have visited where the stray dogs are completely docile as everyone treats them well. It is such a different experience not having to avoid the dogs but walk straight past them instead.
The wet season sometimes means you can't see the view but at the same time it makes atmospheric views like this. This ground is where the black necked crane call home in #bhutan. Time to dry off in a home stay tonight!
Trekking in Bhutan makes you feel as if you are the only people in the country. It is rare nowadays to be somewhere without any other people, wifi or noise. Coming to Bhutan has helped me to restore myself and with views like this it is not surprising!
This is the most iconic sight in Bhutan and it certainly deserves to be. It is a steep hike taking a few hours and a lot of elevation in altitude so by the time you get to this point there is a sense of accomplishment from everyone. Built in the 1400s it must have been painful getting all the working material up there.
I just couldn't resist putting another picture of the Blue Mosque up as I loved the different architecture in Istanbul so much! So glad I put my transit time with #turkishairlines to good use!Hopefully, I will be back in Istanbul soon?!
The markets in Istanbul are just full of colour, smells and life. Spend time wandering and admiring all the wonderful treats on offer. You can take a free transit tour with Turkish Airlines. Read more in my blog. Link above!
I finally got to have a taste of Turkey on my long stop over in Istanbul. Don't stay in the airport instead use the opportunity to get out and explore the city on one of the free tours run by Turkish airlines! The Blue Mosque was more beautiful than words could describe.
Tea, tea and lots more tea! If you come to Malaysia make sure you check out the tea country in Cameron Highlands. You can have a walk through a plantation.
Many in Malaysia say this is the most beautiful beach in #malaysia. At the moment it doesn't appear on many top beach list though it does deserve to. Let's keep it our little secret?
A great mantra for life and sums up Redang island perfectly. For a little island paradise then Redang island is the perfect place.
Redang is the hidden gem in Malaysia and locals know it as their island paradise. With sunrises like this who could disagree?
