In these uncertain times, many of us who love and have chosen the travel lifestyle are changing course, staying home, and doing things that are against our wanderlust and exploratory nature to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). I’ve only been working from home for the last three business days and I’m already starting to get a little stir crazy… Continue reading 4 Ways to Keep Your Wanderlust Alive when Social Distancing
London is a city filled with unique corner pubs, interesting neighbourhoods to explore, and a rich (but sometimes dark) history. It’s a city it can take you years to explore completely, but if you’re only here for a few days, how do you make the most of it – especially you find yourself in the rain? Continue reading 10 Things to Do on a Rainy Day in London
Norwegian Fjords have long been on my bucket list. From envisioning myself hiking up the majestic mountain sides to cruising along the sun kissed water, I’d dreamt about this trip for years. Finally during the long weekend, the dream became reality! If you’re like me, you spend hours researching and planning how to get there, where to stay, what to do, and the things to … Continue reading Planning a Long Weekend: Norwegian Fjords
I’ve been to Thailand several times, almost always during peak season (end of November through January). With my parents living in Bangkok for 3 years, it became an easy holiday destination with reasonably cheap direct flights from London (if you book in advance). What I’ve learned during my trips is 1) don’t over pack, 2) bring comfortable walking shoes, and 3) bring a day pack … Continue reading Thailand: Your Comprehensive Packing List

In the beginning of August, my boyfriend and I headed to Italy for a much needed vacation. Over the course of a week, we spent a few days eating our weight in pizza and pasta in Naples, enjoyed sunshine and Aperol Spritz on the Amalfi Coast, and most importantly, watched two of our friends get married in Lecce.

When I travel on the weekends, or even for a week long trip, I only carry a carry on bag. Most of the time this includes a small purse that can be put into the carry on when I fly with airlines like EasyJet, who won’t let you on the air plane with a second item.

I’ve been to Iceland twice – both times in the middle of winter. It’s one of the few places I’ve been where I have no desire to leave and can see myself settling down even if the weather rarely ever goes above 20C. Iceland is a country filled with natural beauty, mouth watering seafood, and the some of the kindest people I’ve met. Continue reading How to Spend 4 Days in Iceland
Over Easter Weekend, my boyfriend and I headed to Islay with another couple to escape London and explore the Scottish countryside.
Islay is the fifth largest island in Scotland – home to many of the famous Scottish Whiskey brands as the island due to its climate. Only a few thousand people call the island home.
