Kandolhu, Maldives - Where a travel blogger goes on holiday

•••
It is no secret that I adore the Maldives. I know as a travel blogger this might be a little bit surprising because after all, the Maldives are not known for great adventures (unless of course, you count scuba diving!), culture or mingling with locals but rather for luxury and la dolce vita. I know I am fortunate that I have a job that brings me much adventu[...]

Dhigali - Could this be the coolest Hotel in the Maldives?

•••
I have been incredibly lucky with my travels last year and even got the chance to return to one of my favorite holiday destinations: the Maldives. I know what some of you might think - what does a single girl do in such a romantic honeymoon destination? I used to agree with this sentiment until I realized - if I wait for the right guy to go places with, I mi[...]

Visiting Vietnam - 10 things you might not know yet

•••
A few weeks ago I was one lucky Travelette to be invited to Northern Vietnam by Enchanting Travels and Vietnam Airlines. Traveling from buzzing Hanoi to the dreamy region of Sapa and lush Mai Chau our itinerary augured to be as diverse as this beautiful country itself and surely lived up to its promises. Never having visited before I was beyond excite[...]

5 tips to conquering your first solo trip

•••
Traveling alone can be scary. Let’s be honest. All those questions flying through your mind. What if I get lost? What if I’m lonely? Will I make any friends? What if I feel unsafe? The thought of being caught up in world where you make your own choices, wake up when you like and dine alone can be truly terrifying. There was a time I hated the th[...]

San Andrés Island: Colombia’s Little Secret

•••
A little guide, for a little island... As my extended stay in Colombia edged towards a close, I found myself in the same position I had found myself in all too often; desperately trying to squeeze six months worth of activities into two hectic weeks. I had wanted to visit San Andrés Island ever since I’d first heard it mentioned over the clinking of cocktai[...]

9 Ways Parents Can Support Their Kid's Decision to Travel Solo

•••
The realisation that your child is now an independent adult who’s life no longer depends on you doesn’t get much more abrupt than watching them disappear to another country, completely alone. Although I’m not a parent, I totally get it - parting with a child to go abroad who you have devoted your life to nurturing and guiding through life’s ups and downs,[...]

Dark tourism: The Graveyard Tour at Highgate Cemetery, London

•••
It’s my first time in London during autumn for several years, and I’m pretty excited by the genuinely okay-ish weather the UK has been seeing so far. So in the spirit of autumn and all things naughty/nice and pumpkin spiced I decided to embrace the season and explore one of London’s most impressive graveyards to get knee-deep in seasonal feels and capture[...]

5 travel mistakes I made, so you don’t have to

•••
It’s kind of hard to believe that I traveled for so long and came so far without any major hiccups. But then 2018 seemed to be a year of epic travel and epic mistakes. I don’t think I slackened my defenses. I guess some years are just luckier than others, and clearly, the more you travel the more you’re at risk of at least a few fails. We’ve all proba[...]

Managing Your Mental Health on the Road

•••
I must confess, on many a sun-filled day I’ve sat alone in hotel rooms, skimming mindlessly through stations, desperately in search of Animal Planet. AC on, curtains closed and Pringles crumbs scattered carelessly about the bed… probably. This is the side of travel that people don’t talk about, don’t blog about; the days that aren’t spent living your best li[...]

Making Friends in a New City - Some Handy Tips

•••
5 years ago, I stepped off a plane and into a new city and a new life. It was a fairly impulsive decision, the kind we usually make when we feel we need a change of scenery or to step out of our comfort zone and try something different. For many this would mean getting a new hair cut or trying a new restaurant, but if you’re anything like me – this meant a n[...]
