A Perfect Day in London

A Perfect Day in London

I love London. Despite hating the cold with a passion, this city floods me with a nostalgic, comfortable and exciting feeling. Everything just works. Bang on time.

No Place Like Cuba – A Cuba Travel Guide

No Place Like Cuba – A Cuba Travel Guide

There truly is no place like Cuba. Never have I stepped foot in a country so unique and fascinating. The largest island in the Carribean is so rich in history and culture, with a lifestyle I had no idea still existed with such force. I learnt more in my 3 week visit there than in […]

Sunrise at Sea

One of my favourite routines on the boat is getting out on the helideck each morning to take a photo of the gorgeous sunrise. Each day a different colour splashed unpredictably across the sky.

(…while travelling solo..). The questions a lot of people ask me about travelling by myself are things like, “But don’t you ever get lonely?” and “How did you meet so many people?” I bet you’ve seen blogs and facebook pages full of people’s travel pictures, surrounded by about a hundred new friends they seem to have made in about 2 days.

Part 1: My first solo travelling experience..and why i’m hooked

I’m a big advocate in quality alone time. I love it. I think it’s hugely important to be totally content in your own company. However previously i’d never actually gone on holiday to explore a new city on my own. I went to Hollywood for my first solo travelling trip, as in my head it was my dream […]
