Retracing History in Sri Lanka – A trip with Perowne International.

Sri Lanka is a country that I have always longed to visit; its stunning landscapes, rich history and multiculturalism make it a unique island country, and, for a small nation, there is so much to see and experience. This pull for me, has become even stronger since the terrible events of Easter 2019, which has […]

Hectic, Hard-hitting & Heartbreak – Welcome to London.

Back in February, when I posted a short update about my move to London, I had absolutely no idea how the next few months would unravel. As I mentioned, after I got back from my backpacking trip, I very quickly managed to land my dream job and had moved to the capital by November. The […]

Life Update – 6 months later

Since I got home from our backpacking trip in August, I have been decidedly quiet on the blogging front. If I’m honest, I feel like I’ve been going a million miles an hour since landing back in the UK in August, and this site has been the furthest thing from my mind. From the time […]

Regret – Why I don’t think I made the most of Bali.

It’s a strange post to write. Most bloggers boast about how amazing the world is, how they made the most of every single minute of travel. However ever since I got home in August (why does that sound so long ago?!) I have had the niggling feeling that I did not make the most of […]

Bali is an island covered in the lush greenery of rice paddies, mountains and forests; while stunningly beautiful, this does make getting from A to B a little more challenging than you would expect.

Ubud, Bali – Indonesia.

Known as the spiritual capital of Bali, Ubud is a hub of cultural activity. In fact, apart from a beach side location it has everything you could ask for from a holiday destination. We spent four days here right at the beginning of our final three weeks and I found it to be a delightfully […]

Bula! – Two Weeks in Fiji with Awesome Adventures.

One thing to know before you book that plane ticket is that Fiji is rather expensive. In fact, I think due to the high number of imported products from Australia and New Zealand, a lot of the Pacific Islands are. Unfortunately we failed to do any research into this and ended up being those people […]
