São Miguel is an island that was made for road tripping. Away from the major cities (of which there is one – its capital city, Ponta Delgada), the tarmac roads are largely traffic-free, save for the odd herd or two of cows, and the only obstacle you’ll encounter is deciding which of the island’s countless […]
In January of this year my boyfriend Stu and I spent seven nights on the beautiful Azorean island of São Miguel (find out how much of a good deal we scored in this post).

Kerala was a region in India that had been on my travel hit list for several years. Towards the end of last year an opportunity arose to spend 10 days there, as part of an organised trek and tour with adventure travel company, Explore. If you’d like to read about my experience of exploring Kerala […]
