I am many different things, but three of the most prominent of those are an avid researcher, borderline obsessive foodie, and Mexico fangirl. This cocktail means that I arrived back in Mexico armed with an enormous amount of lists, mostly centered around where (and what) to eat in Puerto Vallarta. Having spent most of my …
It’s been a few years now since I began visiting and exploring in the US, but it’s taken me until right now to venture into a national park. With my proclivity towards wildlife, forests, and wide open spaces, that came as a surprise to me (and most people) so it was time to set that right.
Setting out from Fort-de-france we made our way up through the heart of central and northern Martinique, from Jardin de Balata to Sainte-Marie.
The small port-side village of Lyttelton, New Zealand is a place close to my heart. It’s where my grandmother lived when I was growing up; it’s a short boat trip away from where my family lives now; and it’s where my partner and I ended up, by chance, renting a house for the first 6 …
Lesvos is perfect for an authentic taste of Greek life and a haven of delicious food, kindhearted locals and beautiful beaches. Lesvos is my favourite Greek Island .. and here’s three reasons why.
Clear waters, soft golden sand, scorching summer afternoons slipping lazily into long, dreamy evenings – the Albanian riviera paints a beautiful backdrop for enjoying the delights of the coastline without the crowds and price tag of Italy and France.
In 2018, I decided to give living in one place a try. Through a few last minute change of plans, and my brother already being there, that place ended up being Melbourne, Australia. As it turns out, I wasn’t ready to stop travelling, and my year in Melbourne was cut short, as I took off …
I had saved Marrakech for later. To me, it felt like an advanced destination – suited to skilful travellers who know exactly what they are doing. The more I reflect, the more I see how wrong that assumption was. I had bundled Morocco away with the likes of Japan and India for quite some time …
Pueblos Mágicos highlight the towns in Mexico deemed to be the most truly magical. Currently, there are 132 Pueblos Mágicos recognised across Mexico with six of those in the state of Oaxaca.
A signature dish in Morocco, with a fodmap friendly twist. Kefta mkaoura is made up of cherry-sized meatballs in a fragrant tomato sauce. GF & DF too.
New Zealand’s North Island is packed full of charming tiny towns waiting to be explored. Magnificent eaches, forests and glow worms await!
I was born and raised on the South Island of New Zealand, but it took me until my adult life of traveling the world to come to appreciate how beautiful and unique this island really is. But the more I travelled, the more I heard from people along my way how much they dreamed of …
I arrived in Leticia for my thirty second birthday. A corner where three countries meet, built on stilts around the magnificent Amazon river.
Due to a cascade of last-minute decisions, I found myself taking a 36 hour upright rickety bus through the foothills of the Himalayas with a severe case of Delhi Belly – vomiting out the window the whole way.
Jardin de Balata hadn’t originally made it onto my to-do list, but as I slipped through a hillside tropical paradise of palms, ferns, tropical flowers and flitting hummingbirds I quickly realised what a mistake missing this would’ve been.
This is an encyclopaedia of sorts, an alphabet of things that a local (me!) thinks people should know to better understand not just the tourist sites, but also the culture of this beautiful country.
The year was twenty-fifteen, I was an eager new explorer having recently discovered the digital nomad life and set out on a one way, seemingly endless journey across Southeast Asia.
Have you been dreaming of luxury railway journeys across foreign lands? Then Sleeper Class is definitely not what you’ve been seeking. But if authentic experiences are what you’re seeking, then I have just the ticket.
Beijing to Mongolia, considered one of the world’s Greatest Railway adventures. Memories of the Trans-Mongolian Express through the Gobi Desert.
A guide to new beginnings and tiny turtles. Exploring Hualtulco, Mazunte and Puerto Escondido on Oaxaca’s Pacific Coast
Anna the flight attendant? Yeah, right! Aviation was not an industry I had ever imagined myself involved in.
Kathmandu wasn’t exactly love at first sight, well at least not in my case. I’d ridden a thirty-six hour bus trip through the Himalayan foothills from Delhi, vomiting out the window the entire way . It had been some bad chicken the day before, It tasted like mud and rotting flesh. I only had a …
Here’s a few interesting travel bloggers writing about places, and experiences, that I’ve been adding to my return-to-travel 2021 wish list
Where the West Coast meets Canterbury lies alpine ranges, hikes, hot springs & old growth forest to explore in Lewis Pass & Maruia Valley.
Chilaquiles, Tamales, Memelas… It was here in Oaxaca that I truly fell in love with Mexico’s fierce art of crafting the perfect breakfast.
Beijing existed in my mind as an abstract painting, fragments taken from my late father’s many tales of arriving in this mysterious land. Visions of tranquil ancient penzai gardens danced with the buzz of a post-modern metropolis. The city was all these things at once and still somehow more; a breathing, gyrating, living contrast to itself.
It is thanks to France that Martinique is one of the top foodie destinations of the Caribbean, but along with being French comes the infamous Sunday closures
From cat cafés to saltwater hot pools – who knew there were so many things to do in Christchurch to keep you busy this winter (even when it’s raining!)
