The obsession with travelling

•••
We all love travelling. The fact that you're on this travel platform and clicked to read this specific post already says something. As the travel market grows and tourism booms, everybody has the travel bug. Being a digital nomad in Bali, getting your Eat, Play, Love on in Italy or roadtrippin' across Europe were once the dream. Today, they are all achievabl[...]

Fynbos Fun at Cape Town’s Most Colourful Workshop

•••
In case you didn’t know; spring has sprung in Cape Town. The Western Cape is exponentially biodiverse in terms of native wildflowers - or “fynbos” as they are locally known - which translates to “fine bush” in Afrikaans. On my recent trip to Cape Town, I went in search of some of the cities most unique activities that could be described as classically[...]

When being a total tourist is encouraged

•••
You’re probably thinking ‘what is Eleni on about?’ So many guides tell us to find the local spots and offer insider knowledge as that’s where the real magic is. I’m not arguing the opposite, in fact, I agree and I look for these guides just as much as the next person.

In the case of the Transsiberian and Transmongolian railway journey, I can vouch that it will be the trip of a lifetime, one you read in the books about with almost too many experiences to take in. Preparing for it is a big task and it can seem daunting. From figuring out where you w[...]

Fall in Love with this Glampsite Just an Hour from London!

•••
As a Londoner, I’m always looking for excuses to get out of the city (temporarily, of course) on a cheeky weekender. For some time now, I’ve been trying to find an appropriate glamping experience that’s feasible from London. While there are a few options for glamping within easy reach of London, almost none offer decent transport links due to the obvious[...]

The Ultimate Philippines Bucket List

•••
Made up of over 7,000 islands, you would be right in thinking that there is plenty to do in the Philippines. With some of the most stunning beaches and landscapes Asia has to offer, the Philippines is simply one big bucket list for outdoor adventure enthusiasts. With a plethora of adrenaline-filled experiences to be had on land, sea and sky, you certainly wo[...]
