How to Travel Bagan to Mandalay by Boat on an Irrawaddy Cruise

Travelling around Myanmar can be a bit of a chore. To get from A to B can be bumpy, cold (or both as in the case of the night train from Yangon to Bagan). However, an amazing exception to this is the Mandalay Bagan boat. The Irrawaddy Cruise boats have a much smoother time of… Continue reading How to Travel Bagan to Mandalay by Boat on an Irrawaddy Cruise

A Very Festive Afternoon Tea at The Pump Room – Bath, UK

Getting into the spirit of the festive season was a little harder in 2020 than previous years for us. Tough times and restrictions galore meant we were struggling to find enjoyment in the twinkly lights or shopping for gifts. However, our trip to Bath in Somerset really pulled us out of the doldrums and into… Continue reading A Very Festive Afternoon Tea at The Pump Room – Bath, UK

A Bed in Kaş – Kas Peninsula Gardens Hotel Review

Kaş is a little jewel on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. The town is split into two areas. Downtown Kaş is a little tourist enclave full of restaurants, bars and diving shops. At night, the atmosphere is genial and buzzy. It is great fun, but for those after a little relaxation, the best accommodation options are on… Continue reading A Bed in Kaş – Kas Peninsula Gardens Hotel Review

The Most Extraordinary Way to See Cappadocia – Turquaz Balloons Review

Hot air ballooning is big business in Cappadocia. Since the first balloons ascended in 1989, the sunrise has always been greeted by these seriously picturesque additions. We were utterly determined to take our turn in the sky, as it is undoubtedly the most extraordinary way to see Cappadocia, and we booked to fly with Turquaz… Continue reading The Most Extraordinary Way to See Cappadocia – Turquaz Balloons Review

Mount Sinai & Red Sea 3 Day Experience Review

The Sinai area of Egypt has had its troubles. In fact, reaching it from Cairo is actually pretty tricky. However, visiting Sinai from Eilat in Israel is actually a great way to explore.

Red Canyon, Desert & Kibbutz Life Tour – An Abraham Tour from Eilat

Is kibbutz a uniquely Israeli idea? Maybe not, there are communes throughout the world, however, I can’t think of anywhere else where governments have supplied land and funding to fledging communities in the same way. Knowing little about the kibbutz life, (other than people’s personal tales of joining one during their travel through Israel) I… Continue reading Red Canyon, Desert & Kibbutz Life Tour – An Abraham Tour from Eilat

A Review of airBaltic A220-300 Business Class LGW – RIX – LGW

AirBaltic is Latvia’s national airline, although you would never know it. Great prices and a lack of flag in their logo makes it seem like a private company, rather than 80% state-owned. Mind you, I only know this with hindsight. When I checked in for my airBaltic flight to Riga, I just thought they were… Continue reading A Review of airBaltic A220-300 Business Class LGW – RIX – LGW

Venice Beach is a suburb of Los Angeles but it feels like a totally different place. Eclectic shopping, relaxed pedestrian strolling and delicious tastes abound.

NB: As… Continue reading Discovering Venice Beach Through Food – A Secret Food Tours Review

Getting Spooky with the Ghosts of New Orleans – A Ghost City Tours Review

New Orleans has an air of the macabre about it. It could be the city of the dead graveyards, the voodoo rituals and rights in the city’s parks. Maybe it’s the gaunt faces of hungover bachelorettes climbing gingerly into their minivans early in the morning. With Halloween just three days away we got spooky with… Continue reading Getting Spooky with the Ghosts of New Orleans – A Ghost City Tours Review
