Postcards from Arequipa

Surrounded by three volcanoes and filled with Baroque architecture, Arequipa might be one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever visited. Although we only had an afternoon and evening in the city, from the moment we stepped off of the aeroplane to see we were surrounded by snowy mountains, I knew Arequipa was going to […]

Condor Spotting at Colca Canyon

When planning our trip to Peru, the Colca Canyon was, admittedly, not a big priority. With the likes of Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and Rainbow Mountain dominating Instagram, we viewed the Colca Canyon as more of an added bonus rather than a must-see. However, once we got to the Peruvian highlands, we realised just how […]

A Guide to Sorrento

Over Summer, I visited Sorrento for the second time, and it reminded me just how much I love this region of Italy. We had a week of hot weather, fantastic food and spectacular views! Many people use Sorrento as a base to explore the rest of the Amalfi Coast, taking day trips to the surrounding […]

Cruising Around the Amalfi Coast: Photo Diary

The Amalfi Coast is known world-wide for its beauty and stunning sea-side towns, so while we were visiting Sorrento last week, we knew we had to take a trip to both Positano and Amalfi. While it is very popular to do the Amalfi Drive to visit both towns (which from what I’ve heard is also […]

A Day in Ang Thong Marine National Park

One of the most popular day trips to take from Koh Samui, Thailand, is to the Ang Thong Marine National ParkĀ – and with good reason. The park consists of 42 islands, and unlike the nearby Koh Samui, they are largely left untouched. Like most of the people visiting Koh Samui, we took this day trip, […]
