Driving the Santa Monica Mountains

Driving the Santa Monica Mountains

1st June 2017 No Comment
During my recent trip to LA, I stumbled across the Santa Monica Mountains completely by accident. I had a spare evening and thought I’d take a drive out to Malibu to the beach, as this surely was the thing to do in late May in Socal. However, sometimes the best laid plans just aren’t the […]
Top 5 reasons to consider an all-inclusive hotel for your beach holiday

Top 5 reasons to consider an all-inclusive hotel for your beach holiday

30th March 2017 No Comment
Out of all the accommodation options available to me, the all-inclusive hotel is one of those I would be least likely to consider. This is probably due to the fact the only all-inclusive hotels I’ve ever heard about have been the ones included in cheap as chips package holidays in Spain and the ensuing horror […]

Top 5 things to do in Medellin, Colombia

I’ve been to  Colombia twice this year and both times I’ve been fortunate enough to visit Medellin. Both times I was only there briefly, but I managed to get out and explore some of this beautiful city during my short time visiting.

Now that we’re well and truly into winter here in the UK and my travel has finished for 2016, I’m already reminiscing about some of my favourite destinations I travelled to this year.

Bogotá is the capital of Colombia and is pretty large, which is exacerbated by the fact traffic is terrible, especially when it rains in the city (which it frequently does). This is the reason why, although I’ve visited Bogotá twice now I can’t pretend to have visited most of the city. However, as the city […]

Although I’ll sit down at some point and do a separate post on Medellin more generally, I feel that Café Pergamino warrants its own post. Earlier this week I was in Medellin on my second visit to this lovely city in the heart of Colombia and the one thing I had to do was visit […]
Santiago, Chile

Santiago, Chile

8th November 2016 No Comment
Last week I travelled to Chile (aka the ends of the Earth!) for 6 days. I’d visited this beautiful country once before earlier this year around April time and the weather was so dreadful I was unable to fully appreciate the city of Santiago. This time the weather was completely different as Chile is approaching […]
