Sunrise Hot Air Ballooning Over Luxor


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 […]

A Little Bit of Lovely Luxor


After exploring a fair bit of Cairo, I was pretty ready to escape the madness and head somewhere slightly more chilled out. After mulling over my options, I decided that Luxor would be an excellent choice. I had more of a time budget than a money budget on this particular trip, so instead of spending […]

Exploring Cairo and A Few More Pyramids


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! […]

One Day At The Pyramids of Giza


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 […]

A Beautiful Birthday in Bali


Firstly, I need to apologise that this post is so late. I have done a truly ridiculous amount of exploring in 2017 and as a result, I now have a significant backlog of adventures waiting to be blogged about! Back in May I found myself faced with yet another birthday. I must admit, I wasn’t […]

My experiences with overwater accommodation have been pretty wonderful over the past few years; from tiny overwater bungalows in the Philippines right through to the most extravagant overwater palaces in the Maldives – I have become a big fan of falling asleep knowing that water is moving beneath me. Travelling to Khao Sok National Park […]

An Ethical Elephant Experience in Khao Sok


I have always thought of elephants as being truly amazing creatures. They are intelligent, enormous and undeniably majestic. When I was a kid, my father used to give me little elephant knick knacks every birthday, and they have remained some of my favourite figurines. I have always wanted to see an Asian elephant in real […]

Back in Thailand + Welcome to Elephant Hills


The first time I visited Thailand, I found it to be a rather polarising experience. On one hand, I absolutely adored every second of my time on Koh Kood, but on the other hand, I hated Phuket with the fiery passion of a thousand suns – and that is not an exaggeration! So, when the […]

Overnight in Wadi Rum + Floating In The Dead Sea

Exploring amazing Wadi Rum and staying overnight in a bedouin camp travel blog!

After I had seen my fill of the Lost City of Petra, I had a few days to play with before I had to be back in Amman for an onwards flight. Luckily, there were a few more spots in Jordan that I was desperate to see before I left! Not too far from Petra […]

A Little More Petra

A guide and photo journal about hiking to the Monastery in Petra and why you should NEVER ride a donkey!

While the Treasury and the Monastery may be the most famous places in Petra, there is a tonne more to Petra than just those two facades. I spent two full days in the Rose Red city and in those two days, I did an absolute bucket-load of walking. I saw so much, and seemed to […]
