One of my favourite things about travel is the opportunity to see new things! Sure, there’s the whole hassle of planing the actual logistics of the trip (which contrary to how that sounds, I actually enjoy) and not to mention the dent that travel can make to your wallet but once these barriers are crossed … Continue Reading

Ignoring the seemingly ‘douchey’ title (…”travelling a lot“), let’s jump right in shall we! 🙂 [Photo: in Sri Lanka]   1.) It’s never too early for plane wine! In regular, real-life, you’d never wake up at 7am and head straight to the kitchen to open up a bottle of Pinot Grigio (or perhaps you would … Continue Reading

Let’s face it, if you’re on here right now, chances are that you already are interested in travel. To some extent, I think we all are so this post isn’t at all about trying to convince you to travel or trying to tell you what you’re missing out on by now travelling more (thanks to … Continue Reading

Woohoo!!! Hand Luggage Only is 2 years old. Okay, fine – it was 2 years old like almost a month ago but we’ve been o the road for the past few week and that, coupled with my love of procrastination, is why I’ve not gotten round to writing this post until now. 🙂 Now I know everyone says this but … Continue Reading

Long before I started blogging on here, I’d travelled every at every single opportunity I got. I also held down a full-time job (or at the very least, was studying full-time) and so a lot of that meant having to squeeze in holidays on weekends or public holidays. We’re talking, heading straight out to the … Continue Reading

… because let’s face it, taking the photo is only half of the work. You still need to see it through and edit that photo to make it look exactly as you had in mind when you took it. Cameras are great but they are no match for the human eye. They don’t capture colours … Continue Reading

These days, starting a blog is relative easy. This is particularly the case if you decide to use platforms like Blogger or Tumblr where everything is pretty much ready to go as soon as you create your account. Other platforms like (which is very different from takes a little more effort but is … Continue Reading

Night time photography is the bane of many a photographer. To be perfectly frank, as beautiful as night time photos look, they tend to be one of the hardest types of photography to nail a.) because the rules vary considerably depending on what sort of photograph you’re after (for instance, Northern light photos require a totally … Continue Reading

I can only recommend this because this is something I’ve started to do and it’s one of those things that makes you think “Why haven’t I thought about this before?”. Unless of course if you’re already part of the club but given the awkward and somewhat counter-intuitive nature of this method, I’m guessing quite a … Continue Reading

I’ve been meaning to write this post for quite a while now. I’m pretty sure if I look through my drafts, I’ll find some unfinished version of it in there… and by “unfinished version”, I mean I probably write the title and one, possibly two sentences. Well, I finally decided it was high time to publish … Continue Reading

Image via   Sometimes, some people just don’t understand a woman who has a mind of her own. It’s a random topic to post about but I’ve noticed this pretty much everywhere I’ve been (even in the UK which is pretty liberal and progressive), a woman/girl who speaks her mind is not always going to … Continue Reading

Okay, so this isn’t normally the type of post I write, but I really wanted to share something personal with you. Over the course of the last 18 months, my weight has slowly crept up by 24lb (almost 11kg)! At first I didn’t notice it… then, after a while, I tried to “ignore” it until … Continue Reading

The world has no shortage of diverse cultures, individuals and indeed, benchmarks for success. Everyone seems to be constantly chasing one goal or the other regardless of what part of the world they live in yet one of the biggest things that travelling across the world always highlights is how similar we all are. We’re all different but … Continue Reading

Putting up photos on instagram is one of the simplest things in the world. You can quite literally click, upload and even insert a witty caption in seconds. Using instagram these days is about so much more than that though. It’s about you getting a chance to showcase you own view of the world and share with … Continue Reading
