I'm Leza, I started this blog years in 2007 as a travel diary for me and my husband when we backpacked around the world for 15 months. I love travel photography, art and music. I've lived in East Africa and visited 55 countries. Back-packed, flash-packed, got married to my Englishman way out in the Ugandan Bush. I want to share the knowledge of independent travel and the great cultural riches it delivers. From beach huts, boutique hotels to 5 star. Incredible capital cities to jungle. UNESCO World Heritage Sites to quirky alternative world wonders. I've seen jaw-dropping palaces in Rajasthan, heard the groaning of glaciers in Argentina and met the Viet Cong in Vietnam. If I can help anyone to see more of this great planet we live on... then this blog has been worth it.
