Please Stop Asking Where I’m REALLY From

The problem with asking "where are you really from" - the perspective from an Asian Australian.

Yeah, but where are you REALLY from? ‘Where are you really from?’ – like I had a brain fart and told you “Australia” but really, I meant somewhere else.

Through A Traveller’s Lens: Israel and Palestine

Peruvian Adventures: Our Time in Mancora

Mancora travel blog

After a very foggy and gloomy Lima, we were beyond excited for Máncora, a beach town on the north-west coast of Perú. It’s “winter” here which means fewer tourists and 28-30 degrees Celsius. Don’t mind if we do. We arrive at Laguna Surf Camp, a spot a stone’s throw from the beach with our own […]
