Travelling is a unique, no matter how many of us go the similar places or have similar experiences, our time and experience of travelling is always different…. It’s a personal experience that we are able to shape, mould and continue to grow from. One of the biggest things that I think travelling has allowed me … Continue Reading

These are random thoughts that either crossed my mind (which I knew I had to share with you) plus one that really struck a chord with me. Hope in some little way, this adds a little something to your day… 1.) Don’t always accept what people say as being correct all the time, even when … Continue Reading

Today, while I was randomly perusing Pinterest (and simultaneous nursing my post-lunch food belly), I came across a couple of rather interesting photography cheat sheets that I haven’t seen around but which I find pretty much on the money. Usually I’m not a fan of sharing infographics or anything that looks remotely like one (I’m not … Continue Reading

My love for travelling started at an early age… and I remember the very first long-haul family vacation to Antigua! I particularly remember how much I loved the journey, the buckled seat belt that clicked in with ease… little pear flavoured sweets to suck, alleviating my “ear-popping” and views that took you away from the … Continue Reading

Train travel is perhaps one of the best ways to explore the UK – especially if you don’t drive. Aww heck, even if you do drive, it’s still so much easier to get on a train, relax and watch the cities and countryside whiz past. Plus, it’s pretty easy to get around the country and … Continue Reading

And no, I don’t mean TV programmes! I mean actually official schemes run by different countries to help people come to their countries to experience it in all its glory and fullness. 1.)

Before we get started though (here’s a heads up), you need one thing if you’re gonna do it this way – flexibility. (You’ll see why later). I’m not talking about flexibility in the sense of being able to do whatever you want, whenever you want (let’s face it, most of us have work or lifestyle schedules which … Continue Reading

Group holidays can be the best or the worst type of holidays to go on. A great test of your friendship is to go on holidays with said friends and if you come back, even stronger friends, then it’s safe to say that it was meant to be! Well, you don’t need to leave everything … Continue Reading

** Competition now closed ** It’s Friday and as I’m super excited about the weekend (as I imagine you are) so I figured it’s high time I did a giveaway. This time, I’m giving away 10 (yes 10! Not, 1 or 2 – 10!) copies of our new book! As you already know, our new … Continue Reading

Travel can be a bit of hard work sometimes. Yes, yes – it’s ultimately fun to travel however the hassle of almost stripping to your underwear when going through security check (well, it sure feels like that sometimes), hauling luggage around the city, worrying about catching your connections and so many other things that are … Continue Reading

It might seem like something of an ambiguous question but the answer is a lot more straight-forward than you’d think. ANSWER. It is not the number of places you have been to or length of time you spend away from home that makes you a traveller. What makes you a traveller is your lust and … Continue Reading

I’m always on the look out for gadget, gizmos and quirky accessories that help make travel that extra bit more fun. Now, while none of these things are things you needs, they the kinda stuff that once you have, you start to wonder how you ever coped without them. Anyway, without further ado, here are … Continue Reading
