Going on your first ever trip can be a mix of sheer excitement but also a nerve-racking prospect. Now, if it’s your first trip, you’re likely having those giddy feelings from planning everything, then bouts of butterflies and a few nerves? Well, this was in my case at least! That being said, there can be … Continue Reading

Anyway, in light of the festive season, we’re so excited to team up with TUI to offer you the chance to win our £1,000 voucher to travel the … Continue Reading

After a little lay in (after visiting Séguret yesterday), we left Mazan around 9:30 am on our last day exploring Provence. Even though it was our last day, I still planned to make it count with a few spots I’d been itching to see since we arrived.  With a big breakfast to start my day right … Continue Reading

The Japanese island of Kyushu is one I’d never really thought of visiting before. I just didn’t know enough about it to even consider it to begin with. This all changed after we visited Tokyo for the first time last year. Over wine, our group of friends decided to head over to Seoul (there was … Continue Reading

After our day as beekeepers in Devon (still fascinated by those little critters), we headed out the very next morning (post-breakfast) to explore even more of Devon. The whole idea of the Microgap, after all, is more than just trying out your hands on a new hobby (albeit in small bite-size travel chunks – like … Continue Reading

After hiking and exploring Mont Ventoux yesterday, today was going to be a little more chilled. Especially as the weather turned a little grey, which made for the perfect excuse to seek shelter indoors and sip on some local wines. Before that though, I was still determined to get back to Séguret after our fleeting little visit … Continue Reading

After a long day exploring Avignon the day before, I actually ended up sleeping so deep that I missed my alarm… and subsequent breakfast! Thankfully, I knew I’d be meeting up with local chef John Chiri at around 10-ish am in the Halles d’Avignon so I wasn’t too worried. 😉 😀 Now, the best thing about … Continue Reading

For the longest time, I’d wanted to properly explore the Provence region of France. It’s always been up there with the likes of Bordeaux, the Dordogne and, of course, Paris. That being said, It’s taken all this time to actually get myself over to Provence. I’m almost ashamed that it took so long in truth, … Continue Reading

After our morning spent hiking up to Arco castle, the only thing I had on my mind once we hopped back into the car was food! I wanted lunch… and lots of it too! We drove over to Drena for a taste of traditional Italian food that’s pretty typical to this part of Northern Italy. … Continue Reading

Perched in the Lombardy region of Italy, Mantua is an ancient Italian city that’s so incredible to see. Plus it has a whopping history too, with it being well over 4,000 years old! Now, in lots of ways, Mantua often gets overshadowed by some of its more popular neighbours of Verona, Venice and Milan. I … Continue Reading

After sailing from Seattle, we finally arrived at the very first stop in Alaska – Ketchikan! My excitement of finally being in Alaska knew no bounds and breakfast disappeared in a flurry as I hurried to hop into appropriate clothes and head out to explore Ketchikan. The plan for the day was pretty simple, hop … Continue Reading

The United Kingdom has a whole heap of gorgeous towns, sleepy little villages and vibrant cities to explore! Yeah, I know I’m biased (being a Brit myself) but there’s so much to see across our beautiful islands. From sunny spots in the south of England to ancient villages that have stood for over a thousand … Continue Reading

Devon is one of those quintessential places in England that is a constant reminder of why it’s important to venture out of London (or other equally popular English cities) and venture out to see more. The trains are pretty good across the UK as a whole – yes, I know services can be delayed from … Continue Reading

Trentino is a part of Italy, we’ve long been fond of! It’s a part of Italy that looks and feels like nowhere else in Italy! It’s just such a special place and one we had such a great time exploring the first time we visited. Then there’s Lake Garda – home to some rather amazing … Continue Reading
