Tuscany is an incredible region of Italy… dare I say it, one of my favourites (shhh, don’t tell the others). With its mountains of delicious food, yummy wine, stunning towns and beautiful traditions, Tuscany really is an incredible region to explore In Italy. Our last visit to Tuscany was during a group holiday, where we … Continue Reading

3 years ago, to this day exactly, in my college room back at Cambridge University I found myself with a free day. This almost never happened! See, you know the way you see photos of students at Uni fooling around and kicking it in the pub on a Saturday? That wasn’t our lot on my course. … Continue Reading

Life can be a prickly old thing, especially when it comes to choosing our own path. When we’re younger, we’re taught to focus on what we will become, to plan on how we will get there and what way we will do with our lives. As if any of us really know when we’re 10! … Continue Reading

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a long time now but could never quite get my thoughts as eloquent as I’d have liked, so I’ve kinda just procrastinated on it for a while until I just realised, there’s probably not an eloquent way to say what I want (though I think that’s probably … Continue Reading

Travelling the world is exciting, it’s exhilarating and always new – it gives us so many incredible experiences and opportunities and really does broaden our horizon when it comes to people, places and cultures (which can only be good). After finishing school and plodded off to university (with a lovely little part-time job in tow), I … Continue Reading

Chances are, if you love to travel, you’ll always be on the lookout for your next adventure! There always seems to be somewhere new and exciting to explore, somewhere you hadn’t thought about and places you hadn’t even considered. Whether your travels take you near or far, there’s a whole heap of nifty little gadgets … Continue Reading

… yeah, you know its coming so grab yourself a glass of bubbly while I sit down and brace yourself while I sing your praises! 😀 But first, I’m going to break with protocol and talk a bit more about numbers. This year, we’ve seen numbers on the blog grow to amounts we couldn’t even … Continue Reading

Love or hate them… we all tend to either make them, break them or try our best to ignore everything about them! Whatever your feelings on the matter, New Year’s resolutions are about to be shoved down your throat quicker than last Malteser in the pack. 🙂 I’m gonna go out on a whim here … Continue Reading

Christmas is a funny one because for such a ‘jolly season’, it can sometimes be so fraught with stress and hassle – all in the search of perfection, which can end up making the day itself seem quite anti-climactic, especially seeing as a good chunk of it is spent half-asleep (or perhaps even full-on napping) … Continue Reading

I’ve meant to write this post for a few months now (granted with a slight different title) but seeing as it’s almost 6 months to the day since we went to Ibiza and I spent an indulgent week eating my weight in Spanish food, followed by a healthy week of fitness and a surprising amount … Continue Reading

Let’s face it, as travellers, we are almost always obsessed with the idea of ‘new’. We visit certain places, have an amazing time in them and pointedly refused to return because there’s so much else to see and do out there. This need to find somewhere new is not a bad thing though… far from … Continue Reading

I consider myself to be something of an inconsistent snorer. On the whole, I don’t regularly snore however I’ve found that over the last few years (and for some reason, particular exacerbated since I moved to London) that I have moments where I become that guy that snores and either amuses or frustrates everyone else … Continue Reading

Travel has, in many ways, become laden with all sorts of expectations on what we must do, eat, or experience, that it can sometimes make us forget what we can actually take, on a more personal and less ‘physical’ level, from our travels. Travel is, at its very essence, a tool – nothing more… nothing less. Broken … Continue Reading

There’s a lot of information out there about solo travel (including how great it is) but I have to admit, given half the chance, I’d much rather travel with friends. This is not a judgement about solo travel (in fact it has very little do with it as I’ve done solo travel quite a bit … Continue Reading
