A summer getaway in Cornwall

Why would anyone ever want to have a holiday at home? That has always been my thought process. You can easily fly to Europe and spend around the same amount of money and possibly experience better weather. However, last year I found myself planning a little staycation in Cornwall. It was for my husbands birthday, and after seeing a view pictures online of the cornish...

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...

A bump in the road: my latest news and a change in pace ahead

I have always been the reflective sort. Often it is the little milestones or dates that occur and it makes me think flip, how did I get to this point? A few weeks ago my Facebook account decided to remind me that it was 5 years ago that I left the beautiful country of New Zealand. When I read that, and looked at my slightly tired but youthful 27 year old face,  I...

Reasons to visit Malta and Gozo

Over the years, the islands of Malta and Gozo have increased in popularity as a holiday destination. After our first visit there in October I can see why. Malta is located in the centre of the Mediterranean. Nestled in-between Sicily and the North African coast.  It therefore enjoys quite favourable weather all year around.

A visit to the Gingerbread museum, Radovljica Slovenia

I have never heard of Radovljica in Slovenia, let alone could point it out on a map. However, when staying in the area of Jesenice, not far from the tourist destination of Bled in Slovenia, we took a wander there, as recommended by our Air BnB host. The town is compact and quaint, and has a whole host of events including a chocolate festival which happens each April...

Moving your banking with you when going to a new country

Moving to a new country can be an unpleasant process. There are lots of things to organise, and a lot of bureaucratic hurdles to get over. There can be lengthy processes and complications, whether it’s organising visas, paperwork, storage, luggage or importing a car. At the top of the list of annoyances though, can be sorting out your money. Both opening a new bank...

Spotting the Flamingos at Salt Lake, Larnaca, Cyprus

Sometimes visiting a destination in the low season has its advantages. Namely these are less tourists and cheaper accommodation. Visiting Cyprus in the winter time also meant that we could have the opportunity of seeing some Flamingos. The gracious looking pink feathered birds grace the Salt Lake in Larnaca between November and March. Finding them can be somewhat...

Cave Greco: The blue lagoon of Cyprus

Having researched virtually nothing of Cyprus, which was booked as a wedding anniversary getaway where we hoped to chill in the sun, we found out that there were some stunning caves and a blue lagoon area at the Far Eastern tip of the island. Greco National Park covers an area of 385 hectares and is home to a variety of bird life, and forest area. It also has a...
