In retrospect, we really should have visited Edmonton a lot sooner. Lloyd has a friend who lives in the city and my cousin (like the ones you spend your childhood rolling in the mud with – not the kind you’re surprised to find out is actually your cousin), lives in Edmonton. Yet for some reason, … Continue Reading

Kuramathi is one of the bigger islands in the Maldives. It’s long enough that you would probably rather hop aboard one of the many golf buggies zipping through the island than attempt to walk the length of it. The surprising thing here however was the fact that, despite its relative size, it still manages to … Continue Reading

The first time I saw pictures of Pena palace in Sintra (granted, this was quite a while back), I kinda didn’t believe it was a real place. It looks so grand yet so colourful that it seemed like something someone working in a Disney movie had drawn up. Of course, I very quickly found out … Continue Reading

At least once a year, we gather round up our group of friends and head off somewhere on a bit of an adventure! This time we decided to head to the Roman city of Nimes… in France, believe it or not. (The year before was Berlin and the first one for this year is South … Continue Reading

After our afternoon exploring Cascais, I’d definitely worked up quite the appetite so I pretty much hot-footed it to the car as fast as possible to the car when it was it time to leave… Well, there’s that and the fact that we were already quite late for our appointment back at Penha Longa – … Continue Reading

Seeing those dolphins and manta rays in the wild was absolutely incredible and the entire time, I totally forgot that I’d had very little sleep the night before (on account of me refusing to go to bed early and having to wave up very early the next day for the boat ride) – thanks in … Continue Reading

I’d been obsessed with visiting Sintra for the longest time. The photos just made it seem like some kind of fairy tale destination and so, a couple of months after my obsession with Sintra started, we booked flights and headed over to Portugal. Cascais (also in Portugal), unlike Sintra was a place I hadn’t heard … Continue Reading
