One day in… Toronto. Discovering Downtown on foot

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 […]

Cerro Monserrate – A 17th Century Sanctuary in Bogotá

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 […]

Should you visit Barbados during the off-season?

5th October 2017 No Comment
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 […]

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 […]

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.

8 reasons you should join a frequent flyer programme

18th August 2017 No Comment
As someone who flies quite regularly and usually long-haul, I often get asked if it’s worth it to join a frequent flyer programme. My answer to this would usually be yes, unless you exclusively fly short-haul around Europe with budget airlines. Even if you only fly once or twice a year with one of the […]

I’m gearing up for another busy travel period at work, starting with a trip to Colombia, Jamaica and Barbados in about a month’s time. It got me thinking about what travel essentials I need to stock up on before I head off (I’m a planner and hate leaving that kind of stuff until the eleventh […]

I received the Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones for my birthday/Christmas last December (see what other travel gifts I received here!) I’ve been using them on every single trip I’ve taken ever since and I don’t really know what I did without them.
