Okay, let’s be honest, we all want to travel but there’s that whispering consciousness on ways to fly greener for our next trip… As the plane roars down the runway, you might well feel that niggling guilt about your carbon footprint. Though, perhaps you’re on the other side of that fence quite frankly couldn’t give … Continue Reading

Alberta is so incredible to explore, there are literally so many beautiful things to do across the province. Best of all, it has a little something for everyone, especially in and around Banff National Park. This is exactly why I wanted to share our Banff itinerary in winter that’ll hopefully help you explore the national … Continue Reading

After last nights drinks at Miyakobashi Shotengai Street, we decided it best to have a little lie-in before hitting the town. Now, there was once spot I really wanted to visit since we arrived in Yokohama and that is the Sankeien Garden that opened over a hundred years ago. Now, the thing that makes this … Continue Reading

After a good nights sleep in our Ryokan the day before, we headed straight for breakfast of fish, miso soup and rice before heading out to explore the busier side of Yokohama. After gorging the lot, we packed up our bags and hopped on the Yokohama Seaside Line with the Yokohama Bay Hotel in sight. … Continue Reading

After exploring Kanazawa, the day before, we decided to make a stopover to Yokohama which is actually a pretty nifty 30 minutes from Narita Airport (and Tokyo, for that matter) by train. It’s funny, we’ve visited Tokyo twice before and for some reason we’d never ventured beyond the city limits to visit Yokohama which is … Continue Reading

Today was to be our last day in the Ishikawa prefecture (after yesterday’s adventure), but we certainly wanted to make the most of our time.

Waking up bright and early after yesterday’s adventure and headed straight for breakfast before our visit to the Shirayama-Hime Shrine to begin our Misogi water purification ritual. As we strolled up to the shrine in Hakusan City, it dawned on me how special our Misogi experience was going to be. I’d never experienced any kind … Continue Reading

After zonking out after yesterday’s adventure around Kanazawa, we must have slept for like 11 hours! That being said, it totally reset us for Japanese time and we both woke up bright-eyed and ready to explore. After gorging at breakfast, we thought it might be a good idea to work off some of those calories … Continue Reading

As you probably know, we totally love Japan. There’s something about the culture, beautiful cities, incredible islands and of course, lots of yummy Japanese food. After visiting Tokyo (a few times), then heading to Kyushu Island in the south, we knew we wanted to explore some other areas of Japan that we’d yet to explore. … Continue Reading

If you know anything about me by now, it’s that I have a deep and meaningful love of English castles. Thankfully, England has a fair few dotted all across the country that is incredible to see. Though, better still, there are a select few that you can actually stay in. This is where Studley Castle … Continue Reading

*This video’s been created as part of ad series with EDF Energy but, as you can tell already tell from the screaming 😄😄, all opinion, reactions and bad surfing are all ours.  As you probably know (after my constant babbling), I love a good road trip! There’s just something about the freedom of driving wherever … Continue Reading

The Celebrity Edge is one of the newer ships from Celebrity Cruises to head out on. After our amazing Celebrity Cruise in Alaska, I was so excited to hop onboard the Celebrity Edge cruise to see what all the hype was about. If you’re planning a  trip on a Celebrity Edge cruise, then there are … Continue Reading

Perched just off the coast of mainland Greece, Kefalonia (or Cephalonia) is one of the best Greek islands to visit in the Ionian Sea. It’s a truly beautiful island that’s totally steeped in natural beauty and a shed load of history. Honestly, you’ll be spoilt for choice when looking for the best things to do … Continue Reading

England is an incredible country to explore. We’ve got some stunning history, beautiful villages and gorgeous national parks that dotted all across the lands. That being said, sometimes, the best places in the north of England are forgotten in lieu of amazing cities like London or the pretty spots in the south of England. That … Continue Reading
