I was speaking to a friend the other day about her travels. See, she had just come back from an amazing tropical island – one that pretty much everyone and anyone would absolutely love to visit. ☀️🏖 She regaled me with tales of her amazing adventures and partway through, paused to caveat one of them with … Continue Reading

As you already know, the first time we went to Sri Lanka, we were all about the temples and ruins. There were so many amazing UNESCO World Heritage sites across the country that it would be borderline-crazy not to! 🙂 Leaving that first trip, I think it’s fair to say we ended up with temple-fatigue … Continue Reading

Amongst other places of course…. If there ever was a place in Tokyo that looks and feels exactly like everything the movies, on TV or in photos, it’s definitely Akihabara  (also known as ‘Electric Town‘).

The trail itself is actually easy enough, it’s never so steep that you can’t handle it – what truly gets you is the fact that you’re in one of the highest altitudes in the world (even higher than Machu Picchu or Cusco) … Continue Reading

Now although we flew into Puno from Cusco to see Lake Titicaca, we’d been told the train journey from Puno back to Cusco was one of the prettiest, not just in the country but in the world. *Sidebar – we actually flew into Juliaca and then took a long taxi ride to Puno. It’s a … Continue Reading

Cape Town was one of the biggest travel surprises for me. It’s a place I only added to our travel itinerary because the three of us (Lloyd, Georgia and I) we wanted to do and see something in South Africa, in addition to going on safari (which was the main reason why we were in SA … Continue Reading
