Five ideas to beat the dreaded jet lag

Five ideas to beat the dreaded jet lag

13th November 2017 No Comment
The majority of my work travel over the past couple of years has been decidedly long-haul, which means that as well as getting to discover some incredible places, I’ve also enjoyed my fair share of jet lag (going both east and west). I’ve definitely reached the point where I genuinely get super excited about any […]

What’s in my carry-on? 7 things I won’t fly without!

9th November 2017 1 Comment
As I’ve mentioned before, most of the travel I do is for work and I’m usually away for around 12 weeks of the year. The majority of this travel is long-haul (i.e. flights of around 7 hours or more). I also travel to multiple destinations in one trip, which can mean anything up to about […]

One day in… Toronto. Discovering Downtown on foot

30th October 2017 No Comment
To be perfectly honest, despite my long-standing love affair with Canada, Toronto has never been one of my favourite cities to visit. This isn’t necessarily due to any fault of the city itself, but probably more to do with when I usually visit. The first time was on my year abroad when I’d finished living […]

I realised the other day that in the last two years I’ve been to Colombia four times with my current job, which seems like a lot! Much as I’ve enjoyed my trips to this beautiful country, Colombia does come with what could be considered quite a significant health and safety warning. I’ve never felt unsafe […]

Places like Barbados and other countries in the Caribbean are often considered to be luxury (read: extortionate) destinations for travellers from the UK and Europe. However, there are ways to get the price down, particularly nowadays with such a lot of flight and accommodation packages available. Even with the packages though, your dream holiday could […]

Exploring the El Poblado district, Medellin

30th September 2017 No Comment
Medellin is the second-largest city in Colombia and is located in Antioquia, north-west of Bogota. A lot of people probably only know the city from watching Narcos on Netflix. Medellin is still perceived as a very dangerous city by a lot of people, but my experience has been that it’s a great and easy city […]

7 food stops not to miss on the NC500

We just got back from our amazing holiday doing the North Coast 500 (NC500) route in Scotland. For me, a major highlight of our NC500 trip was the huge range of amazing food options scattered throughout the route. I’d already read about a few of the places and had identified them as good stops for […]
