After an adrenaline-fueled afternoon paragliding from France to Switzerland, we figured the rest of our day might as well be spent chilling in Geneva and with that, we headed down to the lake for what is easily one of the most fun, chilled things to in Geneva. See, down by the lake, there’s something of … Continue Reading

We arrived into Newfoundland in the middle of the night and suffice to say, did pretty much nothing that night except have dinner and go to sleep. I’d wanted to visit Newfoundland, more specifically – St John’s for quite some time (I think I saw photos somewhere online once and knew I had to do … Continue Reading

By the way, the queue to get in here is incredibly long! It goes round several blocks/streets and then some. By any standards of queues anywhere else we’ve been, it’s long! I can’t speak to how fast the queue moves though (maybe it moves fast enough to make it not so tedious for those on … Continue Reading

One of the best ways to truly explore almost anywhere in Canada is to get out in nature and so, after a rather hurried breakfast in Moncton (we were limited on timing due to changes in tide – will explain more about that later below), we headed over to Hopewell Rocks – one of the … Continue Reading

Visiting the Vatican city in Rome was something of a big deal when we visited. For starters, I’d read about it, seen photos about it and heard so many stories for so long that my excitement was through the roof at finally being able to visit. Then there’s the fact that you have to prepare … Continue Reading

We arrived in Geneva on a delightfully sunny day – the kind that makes you wanna hurriedly chuck your luggage into your hotel room and head out exploring straight away! And so that’s what we did! The hotel was thankfully within walking distance of the city centre so we head out on foot, strolling leisurely … Continue Reading

Leaving the pretty little town of Lunenburg, we made our way over to Wolfville, which is where we would pitch our tent for the night (figuratively speaking, of course) at The Blomidon Inn. The Blomidon Inn is another one of Nova Scotia’s historic hotels and is just the perfect picturesque hotel to finish up a … Continue Reading

The best hikes in the Philippines are without a doubt some of the best ways to find the most amazing views in all of the Philippines. With the Philippines being made up of over 7,000 islands (7,641 to be exact), it’s safe to say the hiking options abound here. So much so that it can … Continue Reading

There’s a part of Canada we’d never fully gotten to explore in the past and ironically, that part is one of the bits that’s actually closest to the UK. Said-part is, broadly-speaking, Atlantic Canada – the bits on the East Coast of Canada which, ironically, are the parts of Canada that are closest to the … Continue Reading

Now, since we’d arrived in Stuttgart, we hadn’t properly managed to check out the Christmas market. The first day we had snow-rain and had to leave within a short time of arriving in the markets (my shoes were soaked and freezing). The next day, we’d spent so long exploring the city, I was just too … Continue Reading

The beauty of some of the best hikes in Spain undoubtedly lies in how delightfully sunny the country is. So much so that us visitors from all over Europe (and indeed the world over), unfailingly make the annual summer pilgrimage in search of said sunshine and warm weather. To put it simply, we all love … Continue Reading

The next morning in Stuttgart (after a brilliant evening in Esslingen), I woke up with an extra spring in my step! As you might already know, I’m a huge sucker for castles. There’s just something so grand about them that I absolutely love and today, we would be visiting one of the most iconic castles, … Continue Reading

Portugal is easily one of the most dramatically beautiful countries in Europe yet somewhat one of the most under-rated. Some of the best hikes in Portugal will easily rival any other options in other European countries yet for some reason, they just seem so much less known (or at the very least, less talked about) … Continue Reading

*Bold claim but carry on and you’ll see what I mean… After a rather relaxing evening at Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, we got up nice and early (not too early though) to meet our guide from the day before, Derek. Derek had a different hike for us today and unlike Grotto Canyon, which we’d specifically … Continue Reading
