Beyond doing up my own apartment on one of the many occasions I’ve changed residences in my short life, I’ve never really been overly interested in interior design and decoration topics. But that’s what travelling does – it exposes you to so many different things and so many different ways of looking at those things that you end up just picking up a broad-based knowledgebase of just about everything.

Family ski holidays in France are just better…
When you think of ski holidays a multitude of destinations come to mind. Perhaps Cervinia in Italy, or maybe Obergurgl in Austria – perhaps even Telluride in Colorado – or if you’re particularly adventurous maybe you imagine indoor skiing in a place like Dubai. Continue Reading ›
As a firm believer in feeding my wanderlust and as someone who maintains my own travel-related blog, I spend hours on end drawing inspiration from other fellow travel-bloggers and “life-livers.” Yes it’s great to have a platform over which to share my own travel stories, my points of view and my travel dreams, but it’s always nice to be able to entertain the one topic I’m most passionate about from the point of view of other travellers and travel bloggers as well.

A transatlantic cruise headed in the direction of the Americas makes for a great way to get away from the northern hemisphere winter, especially if the ultimate destination includes some Caribbean locations. The closer one gets to the equator, the more in line they are to enjoy guaranteed summer climates because some Caribbean locations do indeed have all-year-round summers. Those which have anything close to winter like the Cayman Islands have very mild winters in comparison to many other locations. Continue Reading ›
Since the entire principality of Monaco only covers a total surface area of 2.02 square kilometres, narrowing one’s destination down to Monte Carlo naturally raises some concerns as to having enough to do while visiting this often very mystified part of the world.

So it’s perhaps best to do the Seville-to-Barcelona route. This way you won’t be limiting yourself only to the coast as there are some hidden inland gems to discover and complement your coastal foray with.
The European continent has a really long history and it was created by the cultural developments of many unique societies.

The Old Continent is an amazing place to explore, but unfortunately it is surrounded with a myth of being too expensive for tourists, which discourages a lot of people from traveling there. If there is anything life is teaching us with years and experience that is that everything that is expensive can be made cheap with some careful planning and previous research. In fact, traveling to Europe on a budget is not only possible, but it can also be much better and exciting than luxurious full-package deals you might get from various agencies. Here is how to do it.
