Today I have lots of photos to share with you and an introduction to a popular drink from Taiwan that has been quietly spreading to city centres near you. It’s called Bubble Tea. And it’s delicious.

So if you haven’t tried it yet, enjoy my ‘beginner’s guide’ to Bubble tea shops in London, and anywhere else you find one!…

A Journey Through Maharashtra On The Deccan Odyssey Luxury Train

Posted on April 18th, by Peter Parkorr in India, Video Adventures. 1 Comment
India, India, India. It can be intimidating, but it can also be so inviting. Here is an example of the friendly India I love and will go back to time and again… my latest video showing a week-long tour through Maharashtra, aboard the Deccan Odyssey luxury train.

As the days were getting shorter in the UK and Christmas loomed, it wasn’t a hard decision for me. I was only there for 4 days and change, but when you see the pictures below and my video, you’ll know why it was worth the journey.…

The Magic of Technology, and Why I Love Blogging

Keeping it short and sweet today – New Year, new style. More often, less is more, more or less. Just wanted to show you how incredible technology can be as a traveller, or for anyone who is perma-curious. Look at this little exchange of information and niceties between myself, Serena Puosi (currently in Italy I think? To be confirmed…) and Jodi SchmEttenberg*, who is mid-flight somewhere between Canada and Vietnam!…
