I’m always scared of hard hikes. Actually, maybe scared isn’t the right word to use. My unease stems from a sense of performance anxiety so I guess what I really am is nervous when it comes to hard hikes. I know I can do them but I also know I have to do it at … Continue Reading

Breakfast on my final morning in the Cotswolds started (…after a nice bath) with Eggs royale for myself and Eggs & soldiers for Lloyd – all washed down with some freshly brewed coffee. The Royal Oak is a fairly small and intimate place (I think there only 6 rooms in total) so you’re quite likely … Continue Reading

To say that the Amalfi Coast of Italy is beautiful is something of an understatement! Oh, and don’t get me started on the weather too! While some of us are sat at home, scratching our heads in disbelief at summer snow/hail and wondering why we still need coats in the middle of summer, the Amalfi … Continue Reading

Now, if you’re looking for some of the best places to see in Kuala Lumpur, then hopefully I can help ya out with some gorgeous spots you shouldn’t miss on your … Continue Reading

Our next stop after Zermatt was to Val d’Herens, more specifically to the village of Nax, a spot up in the mountains with an incredible view of the surrounding valleys! Easy as it was to get on the train here – after our day of skiing, I was surprisingly quite knackered! We checked into the … Continue Reading

The best hikes in Ireland are without a doubt those that leave you absolutely in awe of the stunning natural beauty the country is so famous for! Those green rolling hills, jagged and dramatic coastlines, pastel coloured villages and amazing waterfalls are just some of the reasons to strap on those hiking boots and hit … Continue Reading

When it finally came round to skiing in Zermatt, I just didn’t want to. I don’t even know the exact moment that changed but if I had to guess, it was probably when I put my ski boots on. See, I have very wide feet and so I struggle to find, not just comfortable ski … Continue Reading

After a spot of lunch on the beach and a rather lazy stretch in the sunshine, we decided to get ourselves in gear and go on a jet ski! Thing is, it was the first time for either of us (I think I’d kinda been terrified of jet skis before) so it was a bit … Continue Reading

The next morning in the Cotswold, I woke up with no aim but to cram in as many pretty little villages and towns in the Cotswolds as possible into my day. After breakfast at the Royal Oak, we set off to do just that, starting with an old favourite of mine – Bibury and it’s … Continue Reading

After a brilliant night’s sleep in Interlaken, we got up bright and early and made our way over to Niederhorn for a day of ski fun! Niederhorn is your obvious ski spot. I mean, it is, but typically, it’s more so for the locals than it is for travellers. There aren’t really ski lodges here … Continue Reading

A weekend escape to the Cotswolds is something that almost everyone needs to experience in the UK –  doesn’t matter if you call the UK home or if you’re just visiting, you just have to visit. 😀 This beautiful part of England is absolutely gorgeous (a word I used a lot over the next few … Continue Reading

Our first trip of the year took all the way to lakes and snowy Alps of Switzerland – more specifically to Interlaken before heading over to quite a few amazing places in Valais (more on those in other blog posts). We arrived into Interlaken via Zurich (we took the train from there) and after checking … Continue Reading

The beautiful little island of St Kitts is one I’d been looking forward to visiting for a while. The plan to visit had been on the books for ages and yet somehow, it managed to surprise me when it was time to hop aboard that BA flight in search of Caribbean sunshine. St Kitts promised … Continue Reading

The city of Charleston is South Carolina’s oldest, largest and (arguably) most interesting city. For us travellers who don’t live in the US, South Carolina as a whole isn’t the most obvious place to visit but there’s a whole lot of fun things to do in Charleston, South Carolina that a trip to the city is almost … Continue Reading
