5 Helpful Travel Sites You Should Totally Bookmark

•••
The travel market is, undoubtedly, wildly saturated; modern booking sites serve us everything from package holidays to Corfu with ya nan to mind-boggling flight routes that guarantee the lowest fare. With monolith sites like Booking.com, Airbnb and Skyscanner, travel booking has never been more accessible - but with convenience comes apathy, and it's easy to[...]

Sun, Sea and Anarchy and at the World’s Biggest Punk Festival!

•••
Every August thousands of punk music fans, ranging from mohawk-sporting crust punks and rainbow-haired girls, to cute rocker kids-  and even guys who look like they might play golf with your dad - descend on Blackpool; an unassuming seaside town in Northern England. With visitors pouring in from across the world, it’s safe to say that Rebellion Festival [...]

Thai 7/11: a tale of bittersweet love

•••
"Bing-bong" the ubiquitous announcement of arrival that rings aloud with an unapologetic shrill tone. Shortly followed by a crisp, calm blast of faux-alpine air, peppered with the lingering scent of 1000 cheese and ham toasties. Sweet salvation. And a welcome respite from the midday heat. An oasis of tranquillity can be found amongst these dinky packe[...]

5 Offbeat British Festivals to Catch this Summer

•••
Ah, the British summertime! When wobbly bits and sunburnt noses adorn every grassy knoll and poorly-laid beach towel, and it's finally acceptable once again to eat ice cream for breakfast. Although if we're thinking of a super traditional British summer, it's probably raining. But no less, festival season is upon us. But I don't mean Glasto, or Edinburgh[...]

Beyond the Buffet: All-Inclusive Adventures in Mauritius

•••
As a single gal, I don’t often get the chance to swan around luxurious all-inclusive resorts and embrace my inner-diva. This is partly because I feel like if I let her out she won’t go back in, partly because I can’t afford to and also partly because out-dated rules mean us singletons often get hit with high single supplements, or just feel a tad out of [...]

Remembering Rachel: Hippie in Heels

•••
If you follow the travel blogging community, you will have found it hard to miss the awful news that Rachel Jones, author of the popular women's travel blog Hippie in Heels, recently passed away unexpectedly (May 2019.) Her free-spirited nature and long-running India-centric blog are incredibly well known within the worldwide travel community, and if you’ve [...]

Toulouse: 72 hours in the pink city

•••
When choosing a city destination in France, it can sometimes be hard to see beyond the dazzling lights and bustling boulevards of gay Paris. The city of lovers, or so they say; although now perhaps just a tad oversaturated in the tourism department. For an alternative city experience, I cast aside convention and headed to the subdued southern city of Toulous[...]

A Lesson in Dorm Sex Etiquette

•••
We’ve all been there, right? It’s 3.00am, and that pretentious fool with the guitar and dreadlocks is looking like a pretty great idea from across the beer pong table. We’re only animals, after all. A hot topic of debate amongst the backpackers of the world: is it okay to have sex with someone in shared a dorm room? And how, if possible, does one even[...]

City Girls vs. Nature: a dose of olde English charm in the Cotswolds

•••
The neurotic nature of England’s spring weather means Easter is often a washout - but not this year. While fishermen with bulging tackle boxes caught trains out to the coast, I hightailed it to the ‘burbs. I was joining Girls on Travel - a tour group that connects solo ladies on guided trips, and this one was out to the Cotswolds. Also known as the epice[...]

Brighton's Most Spectacular Viewpoint

•••
Located on the bustling seafront, the British Airways i360 would perhaps look odd if it were anywhere other than ever-quirky Brighton, South East England. Perhaps the closest some of us might come to real-life UFO experience; the i360 tower is quite the spectacle towering 450 feet above the famous pebble beach, ensconced by a huge shiny doughnut and visi[...]
