Top Places to Eat & Drink near Seminyak, Bali


One of my absolute favourite things about exploring a new country and culture is trying the local cuisine. I've had the pleasure of visiting Indonesia's most popular island twice (and will be going back for the third time in May) and I can't get enough of the rich and bold flavours of Indonesian food.
I've previously written a Bali Travel Guide & Tips post if you're heading there for the first time yourself and would like more information on Bali.
This post is specific to places near Seminyak as that is where I have spent the most time and where the majority of my favourites happen to be. I have only spent two full days in Ubud and less than that in the Canggu, Uluwatu and Nusa Dua areas.

Hotel & Wedding Destination Review: Pacific Resort Rarotonga


I can't believe it has already been three months since I got married in Rarotonga!
The time certainly has flown by, I can imagine it will be one year before I know it.

It was about time I wrote about the wonderful Pacific Resort, who made our wedding day and the months leading up to it such a breeze, as they took care of absolutely everything.
The communication, special touches and their experience all made them the perfect choice as a wedding venue (as well as a fabulous resort to stay at) and I couldn't recommend them more if you are looking at having a tropical destination wedding yourself.
It really was the ultimate dream wedding location and my now husband and I couldn't be happier that we chose to have it with them.

Halong Bay | Bhaya Cruise Review


Halong Bay was a place I had always dreamed of going to. I had very high expectations- heck I was there for my honeymoon! And you know what- it totally lived up to and exceeded them all.

It was without a doubt the most incredible place I've ever been to.
The surroundings of the UNSECO World Heritage Site were so ancient, magnificent and beautiful- I couldn't take my eyes away from the towering limestone islands topped with rainforests.
Sailing through the tranquil emerald waters was surreal, it was so incredibly peaceful, which was just what we needed.

Why You Should Study Abroad (& My Experience)


Studying overseas in a foreign country may be one of the most beneficial experiences for a university student. I studied abroad in Germany 2015 and it was the greatest year of my life.

If you are thinking about going on an exchange- go for it! Here are five reasons why you should along with snippets of my own experience.

Five Reasons To Visit Dubai


Once just a barren wasteland, Dubai, with their international airport only opening in 1979- is now one of the fastest growing and most incredible cities on the planet.
With so much to see and do it’s little wonder that over thirteen million tourists come to visit every year, yet there are still so many out there that don't know too much about this fantastic place.
What is it about Dubai that tourists and travellers love so much? Here are just five reasons.
