This is my second visit to he ruins of Ephesus which are a popular tourist attraction in Turkey. The city of Ephesus was once famed for the Temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, which was destroyed by a mob led by the archbishop of Constantinople in 401 AD. However, […]

Hot Air Ballooning in Cappadocia

Cappadocia is hands-down one of the most memorable places I have ever visited. The town lies in a unique landscape that looks like it could be from a city on the moon or a fairy tail.  The landscape has peaks called “fairy chimneys” dotting the hillsides which were created by volcanic activity many years ago and […]


We are spending a week in Italy as a summer break.  Ross is very keen to visit Venice (which I’ve visited before) and since it is close to Verona we decided to fly here first and experience the romantic city. We took the train from the airport to the city which was a bit dreary […]

Returning to Venice

Venice is a maze of canals and small streets, whimsical bridges, and colorful buildings. And as with all mazes, you should prepare to find yourself lost a time or two.  This is my second visit to Venice.  My first was back in 2006 when I was backpacking through Europe and this time I am travelling with my boyfriend and […]

Adventure in Queenstown, NZ

It looks like a small town, but it is the ‘Global Adventure Capital’ of the world, and as Ross is pretty adventurous I thought it would be a great place to visit during his first trip […]

We booked a helicopter tour of The Grand Canyon with vegastours.com (which was excellent). We started this tour with a pickup from from our hotel by a stretch limousine (very Vegas). Upon arriving […]

Tombs, Temples & Treasure

I booked this trip to Egypt last minute and although I’ve travelled a lot by myself in the past I felt that it was best to book on a tour for this destination. I booked via ‘On the Go’ Tours and it was a great trip (would recommend).  Our tour was a young group, 20-30 […]

Cycling Around Lake Bled

Lake Bled is unique with its emerald-green lake, a church on the island in the middle. Overlooking the lake is a medieval castle from the 11th century, perched on a cliff top. Yes, it’s every bit as lovely in real life. With its emerald-green lake, picture-postcard church on an islet, a medieval castle clinging to a […]
