These days, there aren’t that many destinations that tend to surprise me. This isn’t because the destinations aren’t amazing or beautiful or dramatic or whatever-else-you’d-look-for-on-your-travels. I think it’s in large part due to being able to do a fair bit of research online, see photos (and videos) before going. This means I tend to arrive … Continue Reading

Now that’s a mouthful of title if ever there was one! Tomorrow, the 1st of July, is Canada Day (well it’s probably already ‘today” in some countries) and it’s not just your average Canada Day – it’s the 150th anniversary of Canada existing as a Confederation (which from what I recall is essentially when all … Continue Reading

As far as Greek holidays go, it’s probably safe to say that the islands (and some of the bigger cities in-land) tend to get most of the attention. Everyone wants (or has) that amazing photo of Santorini, Mykonos or Athens and very little spare a thought for some of the more rustic parts on the … Continue Reading

I can’t even begin to tell you how much and for how long I’ve wanted to visit Nepal. It’s been one place I’ve always been fascinated by – in large part due to Mount Everest and the Himalayas) but in other parts due to the absolutely fascinating history of the country.

Sounds like a bold claim but I’m gonna put the photos down below and you can … Continue Reading

This week we’ve returned to Switzerland (as you could probably tell from our instagram) and for the most part of the week, we’ve basically flitted between the city lights of Zurich (and the tranquil charm of Ascona and Lake Maggiore in Ticino). It has been amazing! The weather has been so good (like ‘middle of … Continue Reading

Before all the jam-packed action in Tokyo and Seoul (…I’ve still got so much to tell you about that trip), we actually started off with a few days in Bilbao. Now Bilbao is a place we’ve only ever visited for the airport alone (it’s the gateway to the Spanish Basque Country) and so we decided … Continue Reading

You may have already seen the post on how we visited Japan recently but what that post doesn’t actually say (and I realise this now) is that Korea was actually the place we booked to visit. Our flights were directly to Seoul and Japan was just one of those “Well, we’re in this part of … Continue Reading
