13 things to love about Corfu

•••
I must admit Greece was not my first choice for places to visit this summer, but when I saw how many of my friends opted for Corfu, I simply had to find out what the fuss was all about and booked a ticket with Aegean Airlines. After a short and comfortable flight we were greeted with sunny skies, warm air and plenty of smiles to what would become one of my n[...]

Girls Just wanna Have Sun: Cancel Winter in Gran Canaria

•••
The Canary Islands are well known as one of the best winter sun options in Europe being that they fall on the same line of latitude as Southern Morocco, hovering around the Tropic of Cancer, which is exceptionally temperate year-round. But believe it or not, I (a Brit) had never ventured to the Canaries before - not even to escape the icky British winter[...]

Who, What, and Where are the Mentawai Islands?

•••
I have a confession to make. You know those beautifully shot tourism commercials for certain countries or states?

I will say, regardless of whether or not you enjoy surfing, I 10/10 recommend staying at a surf camp. Did you know you can stay at a surf camp, and never even touch a surfboard? Instead, you can take advantage of the cool vibes, heal[...]

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 [...]

Spanning over 400kms of scenic coastline, the highway which stretches from the town of Torquay in Victoria to Nelson on the boarder of South Australia, is one of the most beloved road trips in Australia. As the road winds along through green hills on one side and golden sandy beaches on the other, not only will you be immersed in the bewilderingly beautiful [...]
