Jasper National Park is easily one of the most beautiful parts of Canada we’ve ever visited and it’s reason in itself to want to explore even more of the Canadian Rockies. These jagged gigantic mountains make for stunning scenes – couples with beautiful (sometimes turquoise) calm lakes, gorges and canyon are just some of the reasons … Continue Reading

I’ve never sailed a boat before. I’ve been on a boat sailed by someone else, I’ve even gotten very very tipsy on many a boat but never gotten round to sailing it. When we got up on this very morning in Menorca, rain clouds standing guard and ready to pour open at any minute, it … Continue Reading

Mahon is the capital city of Menorca and it’s one of its prettiest! (Albeit, perhaps even more so in the sunshine). We visited late in the evening  when the skies had turned a bit grey (thankfully, we had sunshine in the afternoon for our boat ride) but the greys didn’t take away from the city’s charm … Continue Reading

Formerly known as Saigon and Prey Nokor (at different times), Ho Chi Minh City was re-named after the country’s revolutionary leader (and the first leader in North Vietnam) Ho Chi Minh.

Edmonton was absolutely amazing to visit and one of the coldest places we’ve ever been – which, by the way, is exactly what we were looking for. In winter, you want the snow to stick around (actually, in London, we’d probably even settle for just a bit of snow fall, especially around the Christmas time) … Continue Reading

Yup! We’re up in the Artic. I am writing this post looking right outside my window at a snow-clad mountain in one of the most beautiful places (and certainly the highest place) we’ve ever visit – Tromso in Norway! Sounds like a bold claim but I’m gonna put the photos down below and you can … Continue Reading

After our big lunch down by the seaside, I was in no shape for any exercise whatsoever and so off we went on a more of a laidback jaunt around Menorca – this time on a boat, leaving from the port of Mahon (the capital city of Menorca). Now I realise, reading this title back … Continue Reading

Dubai is a city that almost seems to have risen out of nowhere in a relatively short amount of time and now stands as a popular tourist destination due to its eclectic mix of lavish malls, modern architecture, immense skyscrapers and (perhaps lesser focused on) historical sites. Dubai has essentially been built for you to … Continue Reading
