Malaga is easily one of the most under-rated cities in Spain. It’s often seen as a gateway to other more popular places in Southern Spain and despite having one of Spain’s most popular cities, it’s prettty much used as a transit city. In all honesty, we’d done the same thing every time we’d flown into … Continue Reading

We’re in Mexico right now with Thomson Scene (it’s the perfect balance of luxury, partying and cultural sightseeing) and it’s definitely safe to say we’re very excited! This trip has been a long time coming and seeing as it’s the first time either of us has visited this country, the excitement is probably understandable! 😉 🙂 I have … Continue Reading

We’re currently in the Faroe Islands and to say this trip has been a long time coming, is something of an understatement! We’d been planning and looking forward to this trip for a while. Needless to say, our expectations were quite high as soon as we arrived. We’ve been constantly Snapchatting (@ Hand Luggage Only) … Continue Reading

Over the last couple of days, we’ve been exploring the length and breadth of the stunning Spanish island of Menorca. Thing is, Menorca is often overlooked for it’s bigger sister island of Majorca or it’s party loving sister, Ibiza and I’m just gonna come out and say it – Menorca is one stunning gem of an … Continue Reading

After a brilliant afternoon sandboarding (and for the very first time too), we decided to make a quick change to our initial plans and head over to Addo Elephant Park… with good reason, I might add – it’s like 5 minute away from where we were sandboarding (which is 30 minutes from the centre of Port … Continue Reading

Truth be told, until we arrived in Fuerteventura with Thomas Cook Airlines, I’d never even heard of Betancuria. Even after arriving in this little Spanish village, I still struggled to pronounce the name properly (still not sure if I know how to pronounce it properly now actually but I think it’s miles better than my first … Continue Reading

Ibiza is (justifiably) famous the world-over as a brilliant place to visit in summer! The island fills with visitors from all over the world looking for one of the most unique island experiences the world over. Ibiza’s parties are famous – as are it’s clear blue waters and although these things are available long before (and indeed, … Continue Reading

Ever since our trip to Slovakia in winter, I’ve somehow managed to constantly stumble upon so many photos of Slovenia online (thank you Pinterest) and a couple of weeks ago, whole discussing my need to visit Slovenia very soon, we received a rather delightful invite to come on a wine tour of the country. First … Continue Reading

I have a love affair with Wales. Wales as a whole has been one of my favourite places in the UK and it was home for quite some time so I may be biased here but the Welsh are some of the kindest, funniest and ‘fun-est’ people you’ll ever meet! And then there’s that dramatic … Continue Reading

Remember this video below we did with Airbnb and STA Travel in Amsterdam a few months ago? Well, I was going through my photos from our time in Amsterdam and found some of the ‘behind the scenes’ photos that never quite made it to the blog (to be fair, I still have a lot of photos … Continue Reading

Muizenberg is a beach suburb in Cape Town and while we didn’t really get the chance to explore Muizenberg in any real depth, one thing we knew we certainly had to do was head down to the beach, albeit not for the obvious reasons one would expect. The thing is Georgia had heard about the colourful beach … Continue Reading

The last few days have been hectic but oh so fun filled! If you’ve been on Snapchat lately (@HandLuggageOnly), then you’ll have seen that we’ve been in Spain exploring Malaga and beyond with Surprise Trips. (Surprise Trips is an amazing start-up offering you the chance to travel to destinations based on your own budget and … Continue Reading

Due to some confusion or the other (or perhaps it was rum punch related), I managed to miss the complimentary St James Club catamaran trip (St James Club is where I stayed in Antigua) but despite this, I knew I had to see Antigua by boat properly. Thankfully, there are a lot of options available here … Continue Reading

If you’ve been on our Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, you’ll probably have been inundated with so many photos from the Maldives… If you haven’t well this post is for you – we’re in the Maldives as it’s as beautiful as they all said it would be! (Oh, and we’re also on Snapchat with username “HandLuggageOnly”) … Continue Reading
