Perfect Perhentian Islands, Malaysia

Life is pretty basic and if you don’t mind ceiling fans, sharing with gordon the gecko and his kids, and living with just the one tank of cold water for your showers every day, then you will find yourself in a slice of heaven.

Gone Surfing in Portugal

You may guess by now that I have zero self restraint when there are cheap flights in front of me, even less control over how fast I book a ticket when a friend says ‘Come visit me!’ as she lazes by the pool of a surf house in Portugal in the Winter, where she’s working…

Uluwatu, Bali

If it’s beauty you want, you will find it in abundance here in Uluwatu on the South-Western tip of the Bukit Peninsula in Bali. It is one of the top 5 surfing spots in the world, and you can see all those little dots in the sunset surf in the picture above, are surfers. All…

Canggu, Bali

What a little dream. You’ll find Canggu on the South of the island of Bali in Indonesia, nestled in surrounding rice fields hugging the beach. It’s humid, hip, there are black sand beaches, bonkers Aussies and surf boys and girls. Muscles and tanned limbs for days. If you stroll from Echo Beach past the cows…

Postcards from Cornwall

These days I’m quite the converted camper, the moment my friends suggest it I put the straightening irons down, grab my hikers, fleece, spork and some water proof mascara (come on, gotta have one girly thing on a trip) and I’m on the road looking like an over grown teenage backpacker.

With just a little bit of doubt about camping in the ‘British’ summer, we thought what the heck!…

How to Have Fun in Hvar

We started in Dubrovnik and headed to Hvar where we knew we would have some rest days after madly dashing through Italy and into Croatia. There would be beaches and island chilled out vibes, and after the action packed fun in Dubrovnik (kayaking into a sunset, outrageously good!) we were looking forward to it. We had a few…

Divine Dubrovnik

I fell in love…with Croatia. Sssssh, don’t tell my beautiful Italy that another country stole my heart. From land to sea, to islands glistening like white washed gems in the sparkling Adriatic sea, this is one beautiful country….even if Game of Thrones fans do arrive in mind boggling numbers to walk in the footsteps of the stars…

The Italian Affair – Cinque Terre

One afternoon at work I walked past a colleagues screen and stopped, they were lost in Google images of the most postcard pretty pictures of little pastel villages backing onto lush hills, scooping above turquoise bays. If I was in a Disney cartoon, my eyes would have turned into hearts, I just had to ask where this…

Pretty Portofino on a Shoe String

The start of three weeks of exciting, long-awaited travelling had begun when I touched down in Genoa, North West Italy in the Liguria Region. My fearless and wonderful friend Jemma had happily quit her day job to embark on her first solo travelling mission visiting far and wide for a few months, so we decided to…
