One place in during my trip in China I was super excited to visit, was of course the Great Wall. The original plan was to visit the wall via a tour that I could book through my hostel, however things slightly changed after my trip to the Summer Palace in Beijing.

After talking for a while, I then proceeded to spend the entire day with them. The day…

My trip to travel in China has finally arrived! A new adventure begins. After months of planning and waiting, I have eventually made the long trip across to China to begin my 6-month travel adventure.

Imagine a building crammed full of travel books from every corner of the world, with maps plastering the walls, a maze of bright backpacks, light up globes bringing life to your wanderlust dreams, all of the travel accessories you can think of, a cosy cafe serving up a range of global goodies, and hip travel experts with some wonderful stories! It all sounds like a nomad’s dream… However, in Norway it is now a reality. I stumbled across The Chillout Travel Centre when wandering through Oslo the other day. Thanks to the most glorious looking hammock hanging outside, I was…
