It’s incredible how music can spark a memory, only yesterday I was listening to a bit of a Spotify mix and a song by the band Ash came on – all of a sudden I was transported back to my teenage years with my friends Paul and Tim. We were young, we were naïve and we had no idea what the world had in store for us… What a sensation! … More Sparking a Memory with Music
I’m quite a punctual person, and growing up pre the mobile phone era if I said I was going to be somewhere at a particular time, I made sure I was. Even now I have the latest iPhone I still like to keep to time or at least close to that time.
Whilst traveling you will experience things run late, be it flights, tours, people… you have to adopt a very tolerant attitude towards most things. However never have we ever encountered such a laid back attitude to time as on the Fijian island of Nanuya Lailai. It was here that we really learnt that island life never really runs to time. … More Adoption of a mantra – Fiji Time

It came as a shock that we had not yet blogged about our experience in one of nature’s few wildlife sanctuaries – Borneo.
I remember hearing about an expedition to Borneo whilst I was at school, but I had no concept of where it was and little interest at that time. Borneo for those of you who don’t know is an Asian Island split in three by Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. It is actually the third largest island in the world, so don’t be fooled by the term Island. … More Unchartered Territory – Borneo
We have been contacted by a number of community members and followers of A Wandering Memory asking for some hints and tips about Vietnam. Your wish is our command!
I was enthralled by Vietnam ever since I studied history at school. The tales of how a small third world nation rose up against the most powerful country in the world, were just too enticing. I soon found out that there was a lot more to the story than what i knew.
All that study just made me more determined to know what this nation was truly like? So I visited and here are our recommendations … More Vietnam Hints & Tips
As many of you will already know, we at A Wandering Memory love a good adventure. So, whilst on a recent break to Switzerland (in the summer), the concept of catching a train up one of Europe’s highest mountains was just too enticing.
The train in question is the Jungfraujoch Railway which transports passengers up a number of passes and concludes next to the summit of Jungfrau Mountain 3,454ft. up in the Alps. … More Sublime Clarity – The Top of Europe

I was always the odds on favourite to leave the UK and live abroad, and in all honesty I have left a number of times. However I have always returned, even from the wonders of Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

We have been recently watching a US TV Series called Wolf Creek, based on the film of the same name and loosely based on horrific real life events. We don’t want to dwell on the subject matter, but what we were really impressed with was the cinematography. The landscape captured during the filming is simply sublime. … More Untold Beauty – Australia
