One day in… Kochi

One day in… Kochi

29th July 2017 No Comment
One of the amazing cities I visited on my first trip to India this year was Kochi in Kerala. The city really is a gem of southern India and is famed for its distinctive Chinese fishing nets, incredible seafood and vibrant spice market. I had an amazing experience doing the complimentary sunset cruise offered by […]

Why you should book a wine tour in Bordeaux

24th June 2017 No Comment
I first visited Bordeaux last Easter with my boyfriend, and without hesitation I had booked a wine tour before we arrived. To be honest, before I went on said wine tour, I knew basically nothing about the wine industry in Bordeaux; all I had was a general awareness that we were heading to one of […]

7 spots not to miss in Vancouver

20th June 2017 No Comment
Over the past couple of years, I’ve been fortunate enough to visit Vancouver several times with work. I love visiting Canada and Vancouver is widely regarded as many people’s favourite city in Canada, if not in the world. It’s hugely diverse culturally, with beautiful open spaces and an abundance of nature around every corner. It’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

Today I flew from London Heathrow to Miami with British Airways departing at 9:00am. The scheduled flight duration for this flight is 9 hours 50 minutes. I flew in the World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) cabin, and as it was very quiet it was a great opportunity for me to take some photos and put […]
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 […]
Cairo, Egypt

Cairo, Egypt

1st November 2016 No Comment
I travelled to the land of the pyramids for the first time last month, visiting Cairo and (briefly) Alexandria. Although much of my travel is to more developed countries, I do relish the opportunity to travel to some more unusual destinations from time to time. I had no idea what to expect before I went […]
