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[...]

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?

7 Reasons to put Crete on your Travelmap

•••
Who doesn't think of whitewashed houses and blue windows to the backdrop of the even bluer ocean when they think of Greece? So did I for the longest time until I actually took my first trip to Greece and visited Thessaloniki and Halkidiki. There was nothing blue and white about either yet I still loved them both.

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.

How to Get Comfortable with Traveling

20 Things To Go Do By Yourself

•••
There is something to be said for doing things alone, for forging your own path and moving through life to the beat of your own drum. It is a trait we admire in solo adventurers like Cheryl Sayed in 'Wild', or the brave young man Christopher McCandless as he enters the woods never to return home again in 'Into the Wild.' There is something alluring and magne[...]

5 reasons to leave your partner at home

•••
I'm looking out the window with a mug of coffee in my hands, enjoying the quiet of the morning, while everyone sleeps in the house. Staring out to vivid blue skies, a brilliant Australian sun and swaying palm trees on Christmas morning is surreal after a good few years of frosty British festive seasons, but a dash of exotic heat always makes my life sparkle [...]
