After a fairly difficult few days in Delhi we decided to visit a travel agent and book a tour out of the city.  We envisioned yoga, meditating and cooking classes in the mountains followed by a rafting trip down the ganges river. The travel agent informed us it was not the right time of year […]

Cinque Terre

Easily one of my favourite places on earth!  The pictured I had seen of these 5 villages embedded in the cliffs perfectly depict the beauty of this place. The Cinque Terre is a string of centuries-old seaside villages on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline. In each of the 5 towns, colourful houses and ancient vineyards […]

Leaning tower in Pisa

Construction on the tower started in 1173 AD near the city’s cathedral on a piece of land known as Piazza dei Miracoli (“Square of Miracles”). The tower was round and 52 feet (16m) in diameter at the base with a projected height of 191 feet (58m). The first level was to be taller than the […]

Cesky Krumlov

I love Cesky Krumlov! It’s a small town in Southern Bohemia, has long been recognised as travellers to Europe as one of the most charming fairytale towns in all of Europe. I couldn’t be happier that tacked this location on to my visit to the Czech Republic.   On my second day in Cesky Krumlov I hired […]

3 Days in Prague

Prague is a destination that always seems to be in vogue. It’s a city I have always dreamt of visiting and it is my first European stop (apart from London) on my 6 month backpacking tour. Prague is a gorgeous, well-preserved medieval city coupled with a rich history, expansive parks, buzzing nightlife (a lot of stag […]

The Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu

I have spent the last few days in Cusco acclimatising to the altitude in preparation for the highlight of my trip to South America… The Inca Trail. Day 1 I woke at 5am to meet the group at 5.40am at the tour office. We travelled by mini-bus and stopped off for breakfast at a lookout […]

Witches Markets of La Paz

Being sick in this incredible city has been disappointing as San Pedro Prison and  ‘Death Road’ were on my bucket-list of things to do and I’m far to weak to consider doing it. I have managed to get to the amazing Witches Market here in La Paz which I must recommend to anyone visiting the […]

Piranhas, Anacondas & Pink Dolphins

This is a 4-day Pampas Tour into the Amazon.  The first day we departed from Rurrenabaque and were driven 3hrs in a 4×4 into the amazon, we stopped at a river and got on a boat (a motorised canoe) which we took up-river for a few hours towards our accommodation. The wildlife is incredible. Whether it’s […]

The Amazon & Rurrenabaque

After a 22-hour delay I have finally arrived in Rurrenabaque, I met some really nice people at the airport and have booked on a Pampas Tour into the Amazon with them.  We all went out to dinner together and then to Mosquito Bar which is a really cool little bard made to look like a […]

Horse Riding in Bariloche

Strung out along the shoreline of Lago Nahuel Huapi, in the middle of the national park, Bariloche has one of the most beautiful settings imaginable.  It reminds me a lot of Queenstown, NZ, perhaps because of the gorgeous lake, the wintery pristine scenery and the quaint shops.  I’ve spent the past 5 days in this beautiful place and am […]
