Not only does Bolivia’s constitutional capital, Sucre, have one of the most beautiful, best-preserved historical ...
Sucre is hands down one of the most delightful capital cities I’ve ever visited – primarily because it doesn’t feel like a capital city. It’s relatively small (with a population of just over 300,000), clean, safe, and incredibly easy to navigate. It also happens to have one of the most beautiful, best-preserved historical centres I’ve ever […]
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, […]
Before I arrived in Cuba I did plenty of research regarding the practicalities of visiting the country, I educated myself about its socio-economic status and the issues faced by its residents, and I shopped online for enough cycling gear to see me through two weeks in the saddle. But because I was booked on an […]
From grand architecture, fine museums, and leafy parks, to thermal baths, fantastic food, and a buzzing nightlife, Hungary’s capital city, Budapest has enough sights and attractions to keep you entertained for at least a week. But if the bustle of life in a city with nearly 1.8 million inhabitants gets too much for you, then you […]
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 […]
I visited Cuba as part of a two-week cycling tour I signed up to, with adventure travel company Explore. As well as keeping you fit along the way, cycling is an amazing way of exploring a new country. You can cover a lot more ground compared to hiking alone, yet you still feel 100% connected […]
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 […]
