Sunset cruise in Kochi, home of the Indian spice trade

Sunset cruise in Kochi, home of the Indian spice trade

4th June 2017 No Comment
Kochi (or Cochin) is a city located in the state of Kerala, which is in south-west India. I took advantage of a complimentary sunset cruise offered by my hotel to see more of this fascinating city. It is located on the coast and is characterised by a series of intricate waterways that flow out into […]
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 […]
One day in… Warsaw, Poland

One day in… Warsaw, Poland

5th May 2017 No Comment
Last year was the first time I had the opportunity to go and visit Poland. Although I’d never been before, I’d heard from others that it’s a lovely country and I wasn’t disappointed! I only went to Warsaw so I can’t comment on other cities, but I found it to be very safe, the people […]
Dartmouth, England

Dartmouth, England

17th April 2017 No Comment
This year, we spent a few days before Easter in Dartmouth, on the south coast of England. The weather was absolutely beautiful, and I’d highly recommend a stop in this quaint little seaside town if you’re planning a trip to this part of the world. Dartmouth is located (unsurprisingly) at the mouth of the River […]
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

13th December 2016 No Comment
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. Medellin has a population of over 2 million, making it the second largest […]

Barbados

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. Right up there was Barbados – I was lucky enough to end up on this beautiful Caribbean island twice this year (once […]
Usaquén, Bogotá, Colombia

Usaquén, Bogotá, Colombia

29th November 2016 No Comment
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 […]
