How To Travel As a Vegetarian​

You’re a vegetarian and find yourself sitting at the dinner table, in a home of a family you just met who invited you in to stay, who speak no English, who cooked you dinner and excitedly sit back and wait for you to try their traditional dish, while you look down and see meat floating…

FINALLY making it to Italy

I have dreamed of visiting Italy since my first day of school, where I learned to count to ten and say ‘good morning’. I’m sad to say my Italian never extended beyond this, but boy did I good morning the shit out of everyone in my three weeks in Italy. Although our Italian never improved…

Places To Visit If You Want To Skip The Tourist Traps of Europe!

Instead of The Amalfi coast, visit Montenegro: although the coast deserves all its fame it gets, the mass swarm of tourists can be a deterrent. The coastline of Montenegro offers some serious competition, complete with high mountain ranges, scary windy roads, and colorful houses. The little tourists and cheap prices compared to the Amalfi coast…

The Best Way To Visit The Colosseum

A tip to beating the hours of waiting for the Colosseum, and it doesn’t include listening to the annoying sales people out the front. A trip to Rome is never complete without a visit to the famous Colosseum. Even with the mass number of tourists and long lines, it is something everyone must do when…

The Amalfi Coast

Usually, when you have extremely high expectations of a place, it’s very unlikely that they ever meet up with them. The Amalfi coast, however, did. The Amalfi Coast has been written on my sticky notes on my computer under ‘places to travel to’ since I can remember, so when I booked a ticket to Europe…

Overland Travel and Why You Should Do It

Although there is something exciting about boarding a plane, watching hours worth of free movies, having a terrible upright sleep and waking up a few hours later in a completely foreign country, ditching air travel altogether opens up so many more opportunities. A few years ago now my boyfriend, Tyral, told me of his dream…

The Coast of Montenegro, The Most Beautiful Place in Europe

I swear every country I visit I say it’s my favourite or most beautiful, but I think I finally found a winner. Montenegro took my breath away every time we turned one of it’s crazy windy roads. The mountain ranges are so lushes and vibrant making it the perfect spot for camping and keen hikers, the…

Visit Albania Before Everyone Else Does

It’s turned out on my trip so far that the countries I’ve heard so much about, the popular tourist destinations, have been my least favorite countries. The countries I know nothing about, the ones we planned the shortest amount of time in and basically just used as a path towards another country, have been my…

My Complete and Honest Opinion On Santorini

Spoiler alert: I hated it! What girl doesn’t dream of one day traveling to Greece, sipping cocktails, swimming in an infinity pool over looking the famous town of Oia, zooming around on a scooter discovering deserted beaches and witnessing a Santorini sunset. I was no exception, Greece, and in particular Santorini, had been on my bucket…

The Lie of The Butterfly Valley

Is it worth visiting or camping at the Butterfly Valley? Short answer: NO! We were in search for a small remote place on a beach to set up our tent and pitch up for a few nights. Surrounded by like-minded people, sitting around bonfires, eating bonfire cooked meals and sharing travel stories. This, we didn’t…

Real Magic Carpets 

I have never heard a man talk so passionately about carpets in my entire life, or anything, for that matter. Listening to someone talk about something they love, a deep love so engrained and passionate it takes over their entire life, is an amazing thing. Mr. Serdal Karakus passion is rugs. He jokes light heartedly that his…

Visiting The Cotton Castles of Pamukkale

The white, unusual shaped stones covering the surface of Pamukkale are one of the most bazar but beautiful things I’ve ever seen. I stood at the top, looking down the layers of bright turquoise pools like layers of frosty cake, the hot sun beating down on my face and the warm water flowing over my…
