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

Thankfully this morning, my only plans … Continue Reading

Shortly after breakfast in our previous ‘home’ island in the Maldives, the seaplane arrived to take us to the new one – Velassaru (…via the capital city of Male, of course). From Male we hopped aboard the island boat which was waiting for us and before long, the beautiful island of Velassaru was in sight! The weather … Continue Reading
