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!

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? Some of you may know Petra from being on the cover of travel brochures, others may recognise Petra from watching Indiana Jones, and there’s probably some of you that recognise it from one of the action scenes in the Transformers film. 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!

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…

Pangandaran – For nature lovers and adventurers! 

Pangandaran – For nature lovers and adventurers! 

I’ve recently moved on from Pangandaran to Yogyakarta, and originally Pangandaran wasn’t on my list of places to visit in Indonesia but I cannot explain to you much the visit was totally worth it!  We arranged to stay in accommodation in Pangandaran at the Panorama A La Plage Guest House, an absolutely brilliant guesthouse, with lovely owners, cheap prices and a good breakfast in the morning. I would definitely recommend it to anybody staying in Pangandaran. However, when we first arrived…

Tangkuban Perahu – Bandungs local Volcano 

Tangkuban Perahu – Bandungs local Volcano 

Tangkuban Perahu is Bandungs local volcano, and it’s definitely worth visiting whilst you’re in or around Bandung. The sulphur pools surrounding the volcano, the views from the top and the breath of fresh air (minus the sulphuric gasses) you get from escaping the city make it worthy of a visit!  Despite the fact the volcano is located so close to the major city of Bandung, getting to the entrance of the volcano can be quite tricky. If you’re going from…

Bukit Lawang – A gem in North Sumatra 

Bukit Lawang – A gem in North Sumatra 

When you hear about backpacking around Indonesia, you usually hear stories of Bali and it’s crazy nightlife, the beauty of the Gilli Islands or the outstanding Borobudur temple complex, right?  All of these sights are stunning, but you barely ever hear anything about Sumatra. It’s the biggest island in Indonesia, and like the rest of Indonesia it’s full of amazing things to see and do! However, that’s not the best part, it’s nowhere near as heavily travelled as most other…
