9 Things You Should Know About Boracay

Boracay is a funny one. A classic case of British marmite – you’ll either love it or hate it. This once idyllic island located in the centre of the Philippines has become so popular over the years, that tourism and development have truly over ruled what was once a middle-of-nowhere piece of paradise. With high end resort style hotels, fast food joints, as well as an abundance of bars and clubs, it’s clear to see why the island receives such mixed reviews. I travelled for three weeks within the Philippines and couldn’t help but feel that I was missing out […]

Road Trip To Norfolk

I have many friends who are from Norfolk, grew up in Norfolk, or still have family in Norfolk, and it’s become one of those places I’ve wanted to visit for a long time. With over 90 miles of coastline including unspoilt beaches, countryside, national parks, and several quaint villages in between, it’s a wonder I’ve not been before. What To Do I don’t know where to start, but to truly enjoy Norfolk you must be a fan of the great outdoors! You’ll be spoilt for choice, from where to walk the dog, which bike trails to follow, which hiking paths […]

Belgium, Escape The City & Visit The Coast

With 65 km of coastline and such a short distance from the city of Bruges, it would be a real shame not to visit one of the many lovely beaches in the surrounding towns. During my visit to Bruges, we were on a road trip so had our car to drive the short 25 minutes through the countryside and several small towns, however there are hourly trains that depart from Bruges and only take 15 minutes. You can also cycle there in roughly an hour depending on your pedal speed and fitness 🙂 Once you make it to the coast, […]

A Little Piece Of Devon

As someone who travels often, I rarely choose a UK based get-away and I’ll be the first to admit that I am guilty of not knowing my own country half as well as I should! Sure I’ve visited most of the big cities (Manchester, Edinburgh, Liverpool), and several smaller towns (Bath, Brighton, Cambridge), but it’s the traditional English villages that I really haven’t learnt to appreciate just yet. With plenty of coastal and inland towns such as York, Oxford or Norwich – all of which are within a 2-hour commute from London by train – why are we not making […]

Picture Perfect Boracay

Famous for it’s incredible white beaches and picture perfect sunsets, Boracay will be a destination that you’ll absolutely love, or for many, absolutely hate. I travelled for three weeks within the Philippines and was keen to find out for myself what the fuss was about. Most visitors will find themselves staying on the Islands’ infamously stunning White Beach – a 4km stretch of powdery white sand, turquoise waters and shady palm trees. The gentle waters are perfect for swimming & snorkelling. There is a traffic free pedestrian path that runs adjacent to the beach. And you’ll find an abundance of […]
