About

I first came to Vietnam aged 23 as a VSO Volunteer in 2005, and spent 2 years working as a PR & Fundraising Manager at the 15 May School, a street childrens' project in the inner city in Saigon which is now sadly closed.

Over the time I spent in Vietnam I was fortunate enough to see a good deal of the country and fell well and truly in love with it. However I was a little surprised that there was very little in the way of good travel information available on places off the beaten track - something I have been trying to rectify with this website but I must confess I am something of a lazy writer.

While back in the UK, where I finished my degree in Development Studies and Politics and worked for an internet marketing agency, I decided to make use of the photos and experiences I had by putting them online for people to share.

I moved back to Vietnam in October 2008 with my girlfriend and we are again living in Saigon - although considering moving up the coast. I love to travel and have also built websites about Lake Como in Italy, Algarve holidays and holidays to Barbados, as well as a site on holidays to Thailand and a package holiday search engine.

While looking for a full time job in a charity I am splitting my time between freelance web work and volunteering - this year I was Race Manager for the 3rd time at the annual Saigon Children's Charity Cyclo Challenge.

If you are interested in featuring your travel related business or service on the site, or if you would like to contribute your own knowledge, photos or videos, please get in touch.

Likewise if you are based in Vietnam and need help with your web presence or marketing strategy, you are welcome to contact me.
