After returning from a thrilling swim in the Devil’s Pool we arrived back to Tongabezi, but that was not where we would actually be spending the night. Tongabezi is the main lodge on the banks of the Zambezi, but they also have a sister lodge located on a tiny little island about 15 minutes downstream. […]

I have wanted to visit Victoria Falls for a seriously long time. Years and years ago I had seen pictures of people swimming at the edge of a waterfall, and ever since, taking that same swim had earned a firm place on the list. So, when the opportunity arose to stay with a luxury lodge […]

Our first day at Jaci’s had already set the bar so incredibly high – I remember wondering how on Earth could things possibly get better? But of course, in true Jaci’s style, things really did. We braved our early 5.30am wake up call with bleary eyes, but after blinking away the sleep and turning off […]

The purpose of visiting Egypt was to cross something (Giza Pyramids) off the bucket list, so I figured I’d keep the trend going and cross something else off the list whilst in Egypt… …hot air ballooning! Whilst doing research about cool things to see and do in Luxor, I kept on seeing recommendations for a sunrise […]

After exploring a fair bit of Cairo, I was pretty ready to escape the madness and head somewhere slightly more chilled out.

I gotta be honest, when I decided to visit Egypt, all I really wanted to do was see the Pyramids! However, there is actually a lot more to Cairo than just the Pyramids of Giza. I am not sure why this came as such a surprise to me, especially considering that Cairo is so big! […]

In terms of ‘bucket list travel’ – 2017 has been a massively successful year for me. I hiked through Greenlandic ice during the middle of winter. I slept in a hotel made entirely out of ice. I visited the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. I marvelled at the Pink Mosque in Shiraz. I hiked my butt off in Petra. I […]
