During our week long adventure on the beautiful island of Ibiza, we hired a Catamaran and headed off on a day trip around the equally (if not more) idyllic island of Espalmador.
Espalmador is a little piece of land just off the coast of Formentera, yet another stunning Balaeric Island. It doesnt have much on it other than pristine sands, but thats all you need when you have a Catamaran full of beer and Sangria, and a Captain lighting up the BBq, right?
Before heading across to Cambodia we had a whirlwind tour of the Phi Pi Islands just a short boat journey from Phuket. One of the most amazing things we did was go snorkeling in the crystal clear waters just off of the Island – breathtaking views and colourful fish swimming around you, what more could you want?!
I love Thailand, and once again it delivered! Visiting Bangkok Zoo wasn’t originally on our Thailand itinerary but we had a few hours to spare before catching a quick flight down to Phuket, so rather than sitting in the hotel relaxing on the rooftop pool we thought we would make the most of the day and head to the zoo!
Often dubbed a ‘fine’ country, and that it is. The Singapore streets are well-known for being clean and tidy, I even remember telling family when I returned “It’s like New York but cleaner.” And the reason for its flawlessness is the many laws that are enforced on a daily basis, ones that you might not even consider and hence get you into trouble.
I always like to go out of my comfort zone when travelling. So what do you do when you have a few hours to spare before hitting the airport to go home? You go to a cat cafe of course! If you’re wondering what a cat cafe is, then it is exactly as it suggests…. a cafe where you go to have a coffee and a cake and relax…surrounded by cats.
For my first post of 2016, I thought I would share a first experience: hosteling. Up until 2012 I had never stayed in a hostel before, and quite frankly never really knew what it involved, the etiquette, prices, room/sleeping arrangements etc. All I knew (or thought I knew) was that I was going to share a bedroom with some strangers and possibly get mugged or worse, murdered in my sleep. I can confirm it was far from that.
So back in 2013, I finished all my university exams and decided before I went travelling around Asia with my boyfriend, that I would fly over to Budapest to meet up with a few girls I knew that were travelling through Europe.
I’ve filtered through the thousands of images I took while in Ibiza in September and gathered a few of the Old Town that were just so inspiring. The photo’s don’t do the atmosphere and vibe any justice, but hopefully these photos will give you a small glimpse into this gem of a place.
We spend our afternoon wandering around the narrow, winding cobbled streets – stopping at every little market stall. Afterwards we walked up to the Dalt Villa fort, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Hope you enjoy!
If you’re planning a trip to Thailand I’m pretty sure you’ve researched the hell out of your destination, whether it be Bangkok, Phuket or somewhere up north like Chiang Mai, then you probably already know what excursions you’re going on, what hostel you’re staying at or even a few favourite bars that people have recommended. But what a lonely planet book won’t tell you is to be vigilant of scams, tricks etc. Now Thais were one of the most polite and friendly people I met on my travels, even the police stopped us to give some advice on the best mode of transport to get to our hotel from the train station! But despite all the positives, there are always negatives, just like any country you visit. So I’ve written five things that will hopefully allow you to have a smooth and happy holiday!
