The Best Non-travel Apps for Travellers I’ve read lots of articles about some of the best travel apps around. They’re great because they tell me things I didn’t know about the apps I already use or they introduce me to some really useful ones I didn’t previously know about. Travel apps generally save you time, […]
Visiting a new country for the first time can be overwhelming, especially when you’re short on time. And when you have to arrange your trips around the limited amount of annual leave you’re afforded by the company for whom you work full-time, the time you have to explore your chosen country becomes even more precious. […]
Slovenia may only have 42 kilometres of coast but it’s quality over quantity that counts, in this former Yugoslav republic that’s roughly the size of Wales. Sandwiched between Italy and Croatia, Slovenia’s coast is full of colourful, Italian-style fishing villages, olive groves, and clean, clear water. There are four main coastal resorts in Slovenia – […]
Whilst I wasn’t particularly enamoured with my visit to Las Terrazas on the whole, I did love visiting the UNESCO biosphere reserve of Sierra de Rosario. And the primary reason behind my enjoyment of this area was the opportunity to take a peek inside the studio of Cuban painter Henry Aloma, and to meet the artist […]
Whenever we visit a new country, we always have some preconceived ideas of what it will be like, whether that be from practical research we’ve carried out, blog posts we’ve read or images we’ve lingered over on Instagram or Pinterest. However the reality rarely compares to our predetermined expectations or assumptions – at least not […]

Of all of the destinations we visited whilst backpacking down Croatia’s coastline towards Dubrovnik, Hvar was one of my favourites. From well-preserved historic towns and villages to rolling, lavender-covered hills, picturesque harbours, imposing fortresses, and quirky eateries, Hvar succeeded in pulling out all the stops to satisfy my passion for beauty and adventure. The island also […]
Along with Tallinn and Helsinki, Riga was up there on my travel hit list as somewhere in the northern part of Eastern Europe / Scandinavia that I’d like to visit someday. I didn’t anticipate for one second that I’d make it there quite as soon as I did. Kath (my long-standing friend who lives up […]
We arrived into Riga in the middle of Latvia’s coldest month (February) and in the middle of a snowstorm that pretty much continued for our entire three days in the city. Being English, and therefore not really having proper winters back home (it’s just permanently cold and cloudy and rains a lot), we welcomed the […]
I visited Budapest as part of a six day independently organised adventure around Hungary. We squeezed in a day trip to the historic town of Eger (famous for its well-preserved baroque architecture and its wine), as well as overnight stops in both Keszthely (on the western end of Lake Balaton) and Pecs (an attractive city located on the […]
