Considering a ski trip next year? Think about these 4 things

There is something so appealing about a skiing adventure. It’s a little different to what we might normally do on holiday, and it’s an excellent way of keeping fit and active,but I also love the exhilarating nature of skiing as well. I was lucky enough to indulge in some cross-country skiing (which is really hard!) […]

How To Fund Your Travels As You Go

Traveling is certainly not the cheapest thing in the world to do – especially not if you’re planning to travel around a few different places for the cultural experience more than a typical vacation type of travel.     So, if you’re looking to spend a few months or more on the road, then you’re […]

What to do in Bagan

  Pick up any guide book and you’ll quickly work out that the main attraction in Bagan is the thousands of temples dotted around the 26 square mile archaeological zone. You can’t visit Bagan without spending at least a day exploring them, however there are some other activities that are not to be missed too! […]

24 Hours in Lisbon!

  I love to take weekends away to European cities, especially when I can make use of the bank holiday weekends! I’ve been to the south of Portugal and spent several sunny, beach holidays in the Algarve but I had never been to the capital.   Over Easter I got to spend 24 hours in […]

Yangon

I just got back from an amazing two week trip to Myanmar/Burma. It was one of the most amazing countries I have ever been too and I feel really lucky that I got to experience it before mass tourism begins there; it was a real taste of authentic Asia.     I haven’t blogged for […]
