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.

We drove from Ghent to Bruges in 45 minutes and […]

Belgium Road Trip Part One – Brussels and Ghent

A few weeks ago I headed off to Belgium on a mini road trip with my lovely friend Claudia who I met in Nicaragua on my G-Adventure Tour. We were extremely lucky to have bonded so well and have kept in touch over the years. We have since taken a trip to Myanmar together, as well as visiting each other in our native countries – me in the UK and Claudia in Holland! With Claudia being such a short drive, from the south of Holland into the Belgium, we decided to visit Belgium. Our day trip soon turned into a […]
