Travel tips

Post pandemic travel to Portugal

Travelling overseas has been different for some time now. Our last “normal” trip was to Mallorca in Spain. We returned on March 5th 2020. Just 18 days later, the country was in lockdown. Although some borders started reopening in and around July 2020, we held off on international travel, due to the complexities of restrictions, including all the last minute changes...

How I will be travelling differently after the Covid-19 pandemic

Do you remember how travel changed after 9/11? Suddenly security was much stricter and we were made to put all our liquids into clear plastic bags. Then there was the shoe bomber incident shortly after, which meant everyone was taking off their shoes and various other items of clothing to be scanned. That was back in 2001, and granted  I wasn’t travelling that much...

Flying with a baby in the wave of a pandemic

Over the past decade I have travelled very frequently, taking some 30 flights per year at my peak. Flying has always felt like the norm to me. Like getting a bus. Then I had a baby, and things slowed down a bit. However, we did manage to take our first flight with her in March 2020. Then there was a pandemic and no one was flying for a while. As I started my...

The first flight with our baby

Just like with our first experience of travelling with our newborn, our first experience of air travel with our baby gave us mixed feelings. Excitement at the fact that she would be going on her first flight, but nerves at how it would go. Normally I love air travel and airports (even those early morning flights). I love getting there and sitting in departures...

Getting The Most Out Of A Road Trip

Having a road trip is one of the best ways that you can possibly get around while travelling. If you are keen to see more of your home country, then this is one way that you can do that relatively easily and inexpensively. And if you are exploring another country, then you can likewise hope to see much more of that place much more readily if you take a road trip. Of...

Travelling with a newborn baby

Prior to the birth of our baby girl, my husband and I had no hestiation in travelling anywhere. Often I would discover a cheap flight and equally affordable accommodation, and would then figure out the rest as the time approached, or even when we got there. During my pregnancy, we travelled a lot and in preparing to have our baby, we discussed about how we would like...

Travelling during pregnancy

When a major life change occurs, it often leads you to reassess your pirorites. One of my main passions is travelling, and having spent the past 10 years exploring over 50 countries, I am determined to continue to do so. It may look slightly different and perhaps not be as frequent. That is because I am expecting to have a little person in my life. Yes, I am actually...

Things I have learnt travelling with a photographer

Travelling and photography go hand in hand. It is not often these days that I don’t go anywhere without a camera (or my phone). The perks of modern technology eh! Whereas rewind to 1998 when I went on a school trip to London, with a hand written journal and two disposable cameras with 27 shots in each. Not knowing what I had captured until I could have the...

Two days in Gozo, Malta

Going to Malta and not visiting Gozo is like going to New York City and not visiting Brooklyn. It is quite a trek to get there granted, especially if you go by public transport. However, it is just beautiful. It has Instagramable doors, perfect little bays to swim in and a more chilled vibe than that of the larger Island of Malta. Getting to Gozo To get to the island...

Travelling through Malta and Gozo by bus

Before travelling to Malta, we considered and reconsidered hiring a car vs public transport. On a previous trip to the Balkans, we hired a car. It was amazing – we had so much flexiblity and saw so much too. However, it was expensive. When planning our trip, I read up on other blogs, as well as took advice from family and friends who had travelled there. In the...
