The Alternative 2020 Travel Wishlist

I love this time of year when the airline sales are live and there’s a whole new year of travellers possibilities waiting to be planned! Since starting my blog, I’ve found that fellow bloggers are the best source of travel inspo so when I thought of making this 2020 travel wish list, I made it a […]

A guide to an autumn weekend in Edinburgh

As you’ll know from reading my Glasgow blog, I only visited Scotland for the first time in 2019 despite having lived in the UK all my life! Once there, I realised everything I’d heard about Scotland’s beauty didn’t really do justice to what I saw so I had to go back, this time to check out […]

Summer 19 in Europe – A quick guide on road tripping around Marseille

Back in July, I spent a few days in Marseille on a Wind Collective community trip. These are informal trips made up of travellers who’ve previously travelled with the wind collective. A few I had travelled with to Colombia but most were new faces who quickly became friends and this is what I love the […]

Summer 18 around the UK

  It is well known that us Londoners can find it difficult to appreciate anything outside the M25 and this is a shame as the rest of the UK does have a lot to offer! I did try to visit a few places this summer but my to do list is long and I plan […]

Summer 18 in Europe – Ibiza Edition

  Ibiza is one of Europe’s top party destinations and is well known for its summer season hosted by the world’s best DJs. It is also known to be quite expensive (and this isn’t wrong in some instances). I first visited back in August 2014 – ironically we flew out on the same day that […]

Best of Central America: 7. Mexico

Mexico is a country that I have longed to visit for years and the one I was most looking forward to on the tour. I had a few days with my group and the rest of the time in Mexico was with Albert (see part 2). From Caye Caulker, Belize (where we had spent the […]

Best of Central America: 6. Belize

Belize is an interesting Central American country in many ways. It was once known as British Honduras and is currently part of the Commonwealth. Therefore its main language is English unlike the rest of its Spanish neighbours. The currency is the Belizean dollar which has the face of a young Queen Elizabeth II on the […]

Best of Central America: 5. Guatemala

Guatemala is the 5th country of the Republic of Central America which gained independence on September 15th 1821 (and our 5th country of this tour). We had dipped our toes into Mayan territory in Honduras but from here on, we learnt so much more. It was another place which hadn’t been on my radar much […]

Best of Central America: 4. Honduras

For me, Honduras was the country I was a little anxious about visiting for a few reasons. But this tour gave me the perfect opportunity to get a feel for the country. We spent a short 48 hours here and I was pleasantly surprised by how lovely it was! Hondurans call themselves Cataracha – not quite […]
