Every once in a while, I am fortunate enough to experience something that is undeniably beyond what I had expected. When I was offered the opportunity to travel to a luxury South African safari lodge in the Madikwe Game Reserve, I knew that it would be an amazing experience.

The Imperial City of Hue

I feel like the older I get and the more I travel, the less guilty I feel about taking a breather from seeking adventures while on the road. When I was starting out as a novice traveller, any day that I didn’t go out and explore felt like a missed opportunity of sorts. I felt […]

Hoi An is one of those cities that people seem to only ever speak about with glowingly positive reviews. Everyone I talked to about Vietnam had told me how much they loved Hoi An and as a result, I was really looking forward to my time there. Luckily, Hoi An is the kind of place […]

Earlier this year, I celebrated a 25th birthday. It would be the first time I ever celebrated my birthday with a boyfriend whilst overseas, so it took quite a while to decide where we should go.

Once again, I found myself having low expectations. Huacachina looked so amazing in pictures that I was pretty seriously convinced that it’d kinda be a scam. I thought it would be so overcrowded and touristy and not at all like I’d hoped. It was definitely touristy, and moderately crowded, but actually, Huacachina ended up being […]

I knew very little about Peru when I arrived in Lima airport. I had spent so long researching and planning my time in Argentina and Antarctica that Peru had kind of become an afterthought. I had no idea what to expect, and honestly, I wasn’t expecting much. I don’t know why, but for some reason, […]

Looking back on the day I trekked to Laguna Torre in Argentinian Patagonia, it fills me with such a wide variety of thoughts and emotions. It was a day that ended up with me getting a violent case of food poisoning (the only time this has ever happened) and blisters on my feet that were […]
