Depending on who you speak to, you’ll get lots of different explanations as to why Jerusalem is so important, who the city belongs to and even what the most important place in the city is. One thing everyone can agree on though is that Jerusalem is one of the oldest and most important religious cities … Continue Reading

After marvelling at those beautiful autumn colours on the ground at Sacacomie, we decided to take in the beauty of autumn in Quebec from a novel perspective – from a helicopter. We’d booked in for just after noon which was plenty of time to get ready and head across to Pourvoirie du Lac Blanc as … Continue Reading

Leipzig is something of a ‘hidden gem’ in Germany. And yes, I use that term very loosely as Leipzig really isn’t hidden (far from) but it most certainly is a gem. It’s such an important city in Germany for reasons (one of which is really HUGE) that a lot of people the world over really … Continue Reading

The next morning, after a day exploring and subsequently falling in love with Quebec (as well as developing a bit of a crush for autumn with its beautiful fall foliage), we packed up and headed out to explore even more of the province of Quebec, beyond its beautiful capital city. Our main destination for the … Continue Reading

I’d never really been a fan of autumn. It just always reminded me that the glorious sunny days of summer were over and the cold, dark (and mostly wet) days of winter were on their way. I feel like the first half of autumn was spent missing summer and the latter half preparing for winter … Continue Reading

As it turns out, this ‘tool’ I’m about to tell you about is actually something we’d been doing for a while and didn’t even realise it till just recently. 😀 It’s saved us so much time and can actually make or break a trip (case in point: Rio where it just made for such a … Continue Reading

Straight off the back of New York came Rio de Janeiro! Rio was something of an experience… So here’s the thing – the city has a reputation for being unsafe but it also has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful cities out there so it’s just hard trying to figure out what … Continue Reading

These last few weeks have been manic! Just looking through Instagram (and our calendar), in the past couple of months, with like just a day in between (sometimes with no days in between).  We’ve been on a road trip through Germany, explore 4 cities in Japan, then to New York, then Rio, then back to … Continue Reading

One of the many joys of staying in the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is that they’ve got a fair few options here to help you make the most of the beauty that is Banff National Park; with hiking Johnston Canyon being one of the best. Like, you can decide you don’t wanna travel far and … Continue Reading

After our rather amazing drive through the Icefields Parkway and exploring the beauty that is Abraham Lake, we made our way back to Banff to grab our stuff from the hotel and head over to our final stop of the trip – Lake Louise. This time, we would be staying at the iconic Fairmont Chateau … Continue Reading

The next morning in Tel Aviv, after our busy day before traipsing across the city, we decided to take things a lot slower. See, today was Tel Aviv pride which meant a huge party across the city as 250,000 revellers descended upon Tel Aviv. Thing is though, Pride is about so much more than just … Continue Reading

The next morning, we got up bright and early for breakfast in the desert and headed over to our final stop of the trip Tel Aviv! Our very first plan in Tel Aviv involved one of my favourite things – food! It was essentially a food tour through Carmel Market – Tel Aviv’s largest market, … Continue Reading

I feel like this post is gonna be more of a photo diary than anything else because of how utterly beautiful this part of Canada is. Like I could try describing it to you but it’s just one of those places/experiences that are better shown than described really. (There are, after all, only so many … Continue Reading

Leaving the Dead Sea, our next stop in Israel was heading for another somewhat extreme environment – the Negev Desert. The scenery as you leave the Dead Sea is pretty amazing, by the way… More specifically actually our next stop within the Negev desert was Makhtesh Ramon – the largest erosion crater in the world. … Continue Reading
