The Top Cities I’ve Visited On My Travels So Far!

The Top Cities I’ve Visited On My Travels So Far!

I’ve visited quite a few cities around the world and in this article, I’ve narrowed my list of cities down to three incredible cities…(It was difficult). So usually you’re either a city lover or a country bumpkin right? Personally, I’m a wildlife and nature lover. I prefer nothing better than exploring mountains, national parks and all the natural sights a country can offer. However, there’s no denying that there are a few cities around the world that deserve to be on everyone’s…

Petra: An exciting two day Itinerary!

If you’re heading to Jordan then you’d be daft not to visit Petra, I mean it’s one of the seven wonders of the world so why wouldn’t you?

Either way, there’s clearly a reason it’s so popular and that’s…

Freetown Christiania: A must see destination

Freetown Christiania: A must see destination

In 2016 both myself and my friend stumbled across Freetown Christiania after deciding to do a miniature European trip covering a few destinations in Europe. However, we managed this on a very strict budget. Instead of interrailing, we decided that by booking the cheapest flights we could find, somehow we could make our way back home within our budget. A little bit stupid, a little bit crazy but a lot of fun! During this spontaneous trip, neither of us had…

Jordan Pass – Yay or Nay? (Is the Jordan pass really worth it?)

Jordan Pass – Yay or Nay? (Is the Jordan pass really worth it?)

I’ve recently returned from an epic trip around both Israel and Jordan which involved stunning national parks, floating in the Dead Sea, visiting Jerusalem on Jerusalem Day (What an experience! – see my blog about it here)  and just an all-around awesome experience in general. Whilst I was in Israel, a local suggested that I should purchase a Jordan pass, as it would make my trip to Jordan cheaper and a lot easier. Well, it turns out that this guy…

5 Apps To Make Backpacking A Lot Easier!

Gone are the days of map reading or asking a local for directions when they speak absolutely no English. There’s little need to walk around town for hours finding hostel availability in a small village in Indonesia and there’s certainly no need to use your maths skills to calculate how much 500 Baht converts to in Pounds (It’s roughly £11.37 by the way). Luckily for you and I, technology has made backpacking a million times easier, and there’s a whole…

Jerusalem on Jerusalem day: An unforgettable experience

Jerusalem on Jerusalem day: An unforgettable experience

Jerusalem has always been one of those destinations that have been on my bucket-list for a very long time. Since learning about its religious importance in school and seeing photos of the old city for what seems like forever, I finally got to experience the city for myself. However, luckily for me, I ended up arriving in the ancient city at the best possible time – Jerusalem Day. I gained a rich and cultural experience that I definitely won’t forget…
