I’m often asked how I find travel inspiration. There’s a lot of decisions involved in planning a holiday, and everything from choosing which country to visit to finding really cool accomodation and things to do when you’re there can be really tricky if you’re not looking in the right places. I’m not sure if I’m […]
Is it possible to not fantasize about Italy? For some, it’s Venice. For others, Positano or Rome. For me, it’s Puglia. The heel of Italy has always appealed to me like no other. And, it seems that this gorgeous region is fast becoming Italy’s latest hot spot. So, here’s a few reasons why you really […]
Wind back the clock four years and you would probably have found me sitting at my computer punching “low cost holidays” into Google. Opening every single tab eveeeerrrr. My birthday was coming up and I had some spare annual leave… so I booked a cheap vacation. And a few months later we hopped off to […]
Is one of your resolutions for 2018 to travel more? Mine too. In fact, it is every year – and it’s the one resolution I’m actually pretty amazing at sticking to! 🎉 (Just don’t ask me about running that 10k… that’s a whole other story!) I don’t know what you’re like with new year goals, but […]
Recently I was asked for recommendations of off beat places to visit in Italy. The only caveat? It had to have great food and wine… such a difficult task in Italy! Well, give me that brief any day of the week and I’ll recommend Bologna. If this gorgeous little city isn’t on your Italy itinerary, it […]
How often do you sit down and write down your goals? Me, personally… not nearly enough. But, reality check, it’s kinda important. Without clarity, none of us will ever get to where we want to be. This is true for anything in life, but especially for travel. Travel doesn’t ‘just happen’. You don’t get lucky […]
Nobody wants to spend their whole vacation surrounded by tourists. With the rise of Instagram tourism, it seems like it’s getting harder and harder to get away from the crowds – even in places that used to be hidden gems. Should it really be so hard to travel like a local? Getting off the beaten path […]
If you already know me, then you know that I’m a bit of a foodie. So it won’t surprise you then that one of my favourite things to do when I visit Singapore is eat. In my opinion, Singapore food is seriously underrated. I think part of the problem is that so many people visit […]
Anyone who’s ever been to Florence will tell you it gets a little crazy. If I’m honest, I’d have been quite happy to leave this city off our Italy itinerary and visit it another time (ideally, in off season). But, alas, it’s somewhere Brad’s always wanted to go… and he’s clearly not alone. So, while […]
Tok Tokkie Trails is the reason we decided to visit Namibia. Having discovered it after roughly 900 hours on Google pondering where to spend a spare week in Southern Africa, the decision went like this: Me: “Hey Brad, I found this awesome walking safari through the desert.. what do you reckon, shall we go to […]
