I don’t know about you, but I’ve always assumed that I’d need to win a large sum of money in order to be able to afford to go on safari in Africa. It was an experience I’d shortlisted for my honeymoon (if I ever got married); it certainly wasn’t something I expected to be doing […]
Whenever I’m planning trips, my choice of destination is often swayed by the lure of cheap flights, and it’s only when I’ve booked those flights that I really look into the logistics of organising an itinerary. Most of the time it works out fine that way, but occasionally it doesn’t. It’s a tricky decision for […]
One of the highlights of my recent long weekend in Warsaw was a guided walking tour through the up-and-coming Praga neighbourhood, on the eastern bank of the Vistula river. Praga started life as a small settlement that was completely separate from the city of Warsaw. Even once it was granted a city charter in 1648, […]
My recent trip to Uganda was probably the most spontaneous, last-minute adventure I’ve ever booked. When I published my 2018 Travel Review post on 31 December 2018, I was completely unaware that my 2019 travels would see me making my first forays into the ‘real’ Africa – beyond Morocco. And that I would be doing […]

Oftentimes I click on the city breaks and then promptly realise that actually I could put together a similar trip for a comparative (if not cheaper) […]
I’ve recently returned from a long weekend in Warsaw, Poland with a couple of friends – the same friends I’ve also enjoyed trips to Riga, Poznan, Cluj-Napoca and Vilnius with. My itinerary-style city guides that I’ve written for these other cities have done really well on the blog, so I’d hoped to write a similar […]
Seeing as though our budget 6-day Norway trip saw us flying into Oslo, we figured it would be rude not to have a quick look around the city before catching a train up to Bergen. We had less than a day in Norway’s capital and inadvertently spent a large chunk of it far from the […]
I decided to drop the “goals and aspirations” part off the end of the title of this year’s post, because I don’t think I managed to achieve any of the personal and blogging goals I set myself at the start of 2018: To complete my first half marathon. In my defence I would have reserved […]
