Best of Central America: 1. Costa Rica

Costa Rica was our first destination in the Central America tour. It was one of 5 countries in the Federal Republic of Central America – whose independence occurred on September 15th 1821. Historically, it has been a pretty peaceful country, having only had one 44 day civil war which ended in 1948 and resulted in the […]

Slovenia

Europe is always a good idea in the summer…and Eastern Europe is an even better one! I visited the lovely country of Slovenia in August 2017 with one of my friends and I guarantee you that by the end of this post, you’ll be ready to book your flights! We flew with EasyJet from London Gatwick […]

Peru

I visited Peru in May ‘17 with one of my friends for a busy 10 day trip including travel time! Considering that the quickest journey from London to Lima was a whole 12 hours, we had a lot of planning and prioritising to do! Luckily May is outside of the peak season so we didn’t […]

Hygge is the Danish concept of being cozy and is all the rage during wintertime. My first trip to Scandinavia was during a bitter cold February 2017.

I first visited aged 13 on a school trip to Disneyland which was great. But my most recent trip was during November ‘16 for a brief […]

Accra

I am of Ghanaian origin but was born and have lived in London my whole life. So I was excited to visit the Motherland and get back to my roots during Easter 2016! African countries often don’t get the appreciation they deserve so I was ready to see it from all angles. Ghana is in […]

I’ve always wanted to visit the Big Apple as it features in every film ever (plus one of my favourite TV series Gossip Girl! ) So I was super excited to experience the magic for myself a couple of autumns ago with my other half. The forecast was cold but sunny which was okay for what […]

Amsterdam

Amsterdam is ALWAYS a good idea..so good that I’ve actually been twice. The first time was on my 20th birthday for a spontaneous post summer exams adventure with 2 of my Uni besties. £44 for a return coach trip from Leicester to Amsterdam. We spent exactly 24 hours there with no place booked to stay..so […]
