Namibia Road-Trip 2017

After spending a year in my home country, it was time to start exploring again. Whenever I want to go abroad, Africa seems to always call to me. This time it was Namibia tugging on my heart. I've been to Namibia before but when I last visited, I spent the duration of my trip working… Read More

Mallorca 2017

It was time for me to go away with some of my closest friends from secondary school. Since leaving school in 2013, I had only seen my friends a handful of times due to our diverse, busy lives. Shortly before I was due to go away, my grandad sadly passed away and the funeral was… Read More

UK Camping 2017

When I think of travelling, I immediately think of jumping on a plane and flying to the opposite end of the world. It never occurred to me that there was in fact so much to see in my own country or 'my own back yard', as some might say. With work reaching an all-time-high in… Read More

St Barth is famed for its fantastic shopping and laid-back, bohemian atmosphere. As well as the shops, the restaurants are meant to be divine. I've visited this island… Read More

Zambia 2012

In July 2012, I went to Zambia. This was my first trip to Africa and I instantly fell in love with the continent. This trip was certainly an experience filled with close encounters and nail-biting experiences with the local wildlife. I nearly get eaten by a hippo 3 times. I also get followed by a… Read More

Miami & Caribbean 2012

In my Easter holidays I went on a cruise that travelled from Miami to Barbados, stopping off at several islands on the way. I had never been on a cruise before so I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I also get seasick - eek! This trip turned out to be one of the… Read More
