Everyone knows the history of the ancient Roman city Pompeii, buried by ash in 79AD and now a fascinating archaeological site. If it wasn’t for this horrific event we wouldn’t have this huge open air museum, frozen in time. One of the first things I learnt exploring Pompeii off season was that the residents of the ancient city had no idea Mt. Vesuvius was a volcano. As people still live on it’s base today, it never occurred to me.View Post

Recently I wrote about how to overcome post-trip blues, but I didn’t touch upon one of the best ways to cheer yourself up after a big trip: planning a mini jaunt! As I’m sure all my fellow travel bloggers will agree, it’s always best to have a new adventure in mind to keep your cultural side in tune and even that sometimes, you don’t need a reason, just a ticket 😉View Post
My first solo trip was when I moved to Canada for six months in 2009 as part of a study abroad programme. I was much younger and didn’t take the time to think about whether I’d get culture shock, or even reverse culture shock when I returned. I spent a lot of time planning before I left and whilst I was there, was too busy having fun to really feel any nostalgia for home or think about being back.View Post
I first heard of Choccywoccydoodah from my mum who mentioned the Sky documentary based on this poetically named, bespoke, chocolate design shop in Brighton. For those of us without Sky, the best option is to seek out this treat of a place by following the chocolately smell through the famous laines of Brighton, past the Bath Arms pub, and up the stairs into the sinful Choccywoccydoodah cafe.View Post
This review post of my travels is something I’ve been subconsciously putting off since I came back, as it feels like the end of one of the best times of my life. Now I’m back, the trip almost feels like a dream and I have to remind myself that it happened and that for two months I lived every day to the full, seeing some of the best destinations the world has to offer!View Post
