Exploring the World’s Highest Lake: A Guide to Lake Titicaca

Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America – and indeed, the highest altitude lake in the world – is one of the main draws of Peru to travellers. While most flock to Machu Picchu and Cusco, those who spend a bit more time in the country will inevitably end up at Lake Titicaca to […]

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 […]

Salzburg, best known for being the birth place of Mozart and for The Sound of Music, is one of those cities you just have to visit. It’s pretty as a postcard, full of great food and culture that when I visited back in January, it zoomed to the top of my list of places I […]

Amsterdam Photo Diary

Amsterdam is known for many things, from its beautiful canals, to its relaxed stance on marijuana, to the infamous Red Light District. And as a result of all of these things, tourists have been flocking to Amsterdam for years – and with good reason. Last month I turned 21 and was surprised by Gareth with a […]

Getting Off the Beaten Track: Visiting Koh Taen and Koh Madsum

  There are many popular day trips to take from Koh Samui, and while most people flood to the Ang Thong Marine Park (including us) and the Full Moon Parties on Koh Phangan, there are very few people who visit Koh Taen and Koh Madsum. Now in my humble opinion, this is an injustice to […]

Exploring Paradise: A Guide to Koh Samui

If you’ve read my last post, you’ll know that while we enjoyed Bangkok, mine and Gareth’s main destination in Thailand was the gorgeous islands in the South! We decided to base ourselves on Koh Samui, as a way of exploring the islands in the surrounding area. I have heard a lot condemning Koh Samui for […]
