Going island hopping the next day meant that we had to get up earlier than I’d perhaps have liked on holidays but the idea of sailing through some of the most beautiful parts of Croatia was more than enough motivation to excitedly jump out of bed and hurry downstairs for breakfast. P.S.: See what we … Continue Reading

Our trip to Croatia was the very first international trip we’d taken in months (for obvious reasons) and it did feel a bit surreal to finally be travelling internationally again. The airport was pretty quiet, the lounge the same but somehow our flight was pretty full. Anyway, a few hours after, we landed in sunny … Continue Reading

You could say I’m biased about Wales. You wouldn’t be wrong either. Wales is an absolute beauty and having lived there for so many years, I’ve gotten to know and explore this beauty first hand. Indeed, some of the best hikes in Wales once completed will leave you equally as biased as I am about … Continue Reading

I quit the last job I had before going full time as a travel blogger because of racism. I think younger me would probably have just carried on and attempted to ignore the problems but the older I get the less I chose to accept or normalise any of this. Being accosted and told off … Continue Reading

Barcelona is one of my absolute favourite cities to visit not just in Spain but in Europe as a whole and understandably, I’m not alone in feeling like this too. Not only that, but it’s also got a heap of secret spots to visit in Barcelona that are dotted all across the city.  Year after … Continue Reading

All across the country, there’s a heap of incredible national parks to hike in the USA. This is no more true that within the state of Colorado. After all, there are so many best hikes in Colorado that you’ll be spoilt for choice. The whole state is awash with incredible mountain ranges, ridges and a … Continue Reading

The Kingdom of Ayutthaya is an incredible ancient Kingdom in Thailand which started almost 700 years ago and existed for over 400 years. Ayutthaya was actually the capital of Thailand years ago, and is still a very important place to visit when you’re in Thailand! These days, it’s now a city and indeed, a wider … Continue Reading

Okay so because we arrived in Bangkok at night, I never got round to showing you our hotel so I’ll just start off with that now. 😁 We stayed at the LiT BANGKOK Hotel for the first couple of night in the city and it was brilliant! I thought I took photos by the pool … Continue Reading

A few hours before midnight, we got picked up from our hotel in Bangkok for a chance to experience the city in a way we wouldn’t have otherwise. Our day had started with one of the most popular spots in the city (the Grand Palace, Khlongs and Wat Arun – see it all here) but … Continue Reading

Bangkok was one city I’d wanted to visit for a long time. Ever since we went to Phuket and Phi Phi Island, Thailand very swiftly rose in the rankings of some of my favourite places to holiday in and thanks to that, the capital city has beckoned for quite some time now. Visiting Bangkok, we … Continue Reading

Leaving those adorable beavers behind, our next stop in Quebec was hard to pronounce (at least, in my experience 😄) Outaouais. More specifically, in Outaouais we stayed in Gatineau, a city right next to Canada’s capital city of Ottawa (like literally across the river – you can see the Parliament of Canada from here!) *Took … Continue Reading

 Rome is an absolute beauty of a city to visit, with the secret spots in Rome are actually a testament to that. It’s not very often when the hype around a city is actually matched with the reality of exploring the city and Rome is one of those few cities that doesn’t just match up … Continue Reading

Our next stop in Quebec involved us ‘getting lost’ in nature and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect for it. Given as it was in autumn, the weather has been a bit cool for the past few days but for some reason, on this one day, it just got ridiculously warm. Like, warm enough … Continue Reading

Leaving Burg Eltz, our final stop on this road trip before heading back to London was Aachen – a city near the border of the Netherlands and Belgium, making for the perfect stop before hopping aboard our DFDS ferry back to London (well actually, to Dover and then driving to London). We checked into the … Continue Reading
