Hi, I'm Ella!
Born in rainy England, I've always had a strong desire to travel to warmer climates and immerse myself in different cultures.
Trouble seems to follow me as I travel the world. I've not had a single trip that's gone to plan.
If I'm not bumping into hippos in the middle of the night, I'm getting caught up in tropical storms, injuring myself in some way (like when I got a drug syringe wedged in my foot) or just being plain stupid.
I provide honest, first-hand travel experiences, not just a glamorous highlight reel. There will be laughter, there will be tears and a whole lotta fun!

I listened to the gentle sound of my shoes against the warm tarmac, a gentle beat which seemed to bounce off the tall surrounding hills. Above me, the sky was clear, allowing great rays of sunlight to filter down and kiss the rural Tenerife landscape. I tried again to clear my ears, so stubborn and… Read More

We returned home from a fantastic day spent exploring the Anaga Rural Park in the very north eastern tip of Tenerife. As I wrapped myself up and settled beside the log-burning stove, feeling the crisp warmth on my skin, I started to go downhill. For the entirety of the day I had been suffering with… Read More

I awoke suddenly in the middle of the night, the creaking of the faulty radiator that was situated on my side of the room in my ears. My nose was both hopelessly blocked and streaming madly at the same time. Oh great! I wanted to yell. I can’t have come down with a cold, can… Read More
