2017, Another Great Year Of Travel

With Christmas been and gone, and 2017 all wrapped up – this means one thing for me. It’s time to reinstate my favourite New Year’s resolution. Once stolen from a friend, this New Year’s resolution is to try and visit at least three new countries per year.  And in 2017 I’ve done exactly that by visiting Vietnam, Wales, and Budapest. Hurrah. A full three out of three achieved for 2017! I think this is a great New Year’s resolution for anyone, and more people should take it up. Time and money are probably no doubt the biggest factors that hold […]

Beach Hopping In Goa

Back in 2013, I visited Goa to spend two week’s beach hopping from the north of Goa down to the south coast. It was a great opportunity to see how the north and south differ so much, and of course, all those places in between! This was my first trip to India, and I couldn’t wait! We started off in the north at the hippy town of Armabol, before heading south for a few nights of madness in Baga. We then travelled further south in seek of fun in Palolem, with a final few nights staying along the gorgeous Agonda Beach […]

Top 9 Things To Do In Palolem

India can be one crazy country, but head down to the southern beaches of Goa, and you’ll find a much slower pace of life here. Palolem Beach in particular has been attracting backpackers for years. With it’s gorgeous beach, cheap prices, and stacks of things to do, what’s not to love? Cost In the 4 years since I visited Goa, it seems prices have rocketed unbelievably. Beachfront bungalows such as Cuba Beach Huts on Palolem Beach, were once £15 pn, are now priced at over £50 pn – blimey! Of course prices will change in line with the influx of […]

Cooking With Rahul

For many, travelling to new countries is all about experiencing new foods just as much as experiencing new cultures. And there’s no better way to get to learn about local foods, than learning first hand from a local cookery pro, like our friend Rahul. I’ve joined a few different cookery classes over the years, most recently in Zanzibar and in Vietnam, but it was my first class in India that made me realise how much I enjoyed these classes. Ironically, Adam is the chef at home and I am the human dishwasher, but I’ve grown fond of these fun learning […]

My Instagram 7 Day Beach Photo Challenge

In case anyone isn’t on Instagram (how is that possible?), or doesn’t follow my Instagram account yet (please add me – I need to get my followers up!), I wanted to share a challenge I set myself last week. For a little bit of fun, I thought I’d set myself a week long challenge on Instagram with only one rule – each day I was to upload a photo of a different beach I had visited. My aim was to collate a short collection of snaps to share some of my favourite memories with you. All photos are my own images and […]
