Travel // A Weekend Escape to Sea Gypsy Island Village Resort, Mersing, Malaysia {2019}

Now that we live in Singapore we feel a bit removed from nature. Everything here is so clean and pristine. Back in the UK we would pack up our bell tent, fairy lights and all our accessories (my husband would complain but it's got to look right, haha) and head off at a moments notice …

Travel // A Night at Montigo Resorts, Nongsa, Batam, Indonesia {2018}
