P A R I S | Top Travel Tips!


They say you either instantly fall in love with Paris or stay completely indifferent to the city for good. Before my first trip several people warned me saying:
"Paris isn't all it's cracked up to be, it's just famous because of the Eiffel Tower."
"Paris is so dirty."
"The people are all rude and snobs."
Well, let me tell you - I am so glad I'm not one of those people that let others form an opinion for me before deciding for myself.
Because all of those preconceived ideas or stereotypes are just out of the mouths of those who may have had a single negative experience, but you simply cannot judge an entire city from that.

Three Greek Islands not to miss on your next trip to Greece



I spent an incredible week cruising through the Greek Islands back in August 2015 and it was the time of my life! I wish I could have spent longer in each place, but our particular trip just got a taster of six Aegean Islands nestled between Greece and Turkey.
It was great on the one hand to see so many different islands and to know exactly which ones I wish to return to next time for longer.
Here are my three favourite islands we went to, which you should definitely not miss out on your next trip to Greece!

Best of Rome: Three Day Itinerary


Aah, Rome. The Eternal City is one of my all-time favourite places to visit in Europe.
It is bursting with astounding history, incredible art, the world's best pasta and gelato to indulge in, Baroque churches, infamous landmarks and fabulous shopping.
After more than 2000 years in existence, there is enough to explore to keep you busy for years, but if you only have a few days to explore Rome- here is a three full-day itinerary which is perfect for a first-time visitor. 
Of course, do customise it how you like, these are simply top places to visit in central Rome with some insider tips to help make the most of your time there.

Eleven Quotes to Inspire the Travel Dreamer in You


I do love a good quote.

They can bring a comfort that those wild dreams you long to chase might not be such a crazy idea after all.

There's a dreamer in all of us, and sometimes we just need a boost or reminder that it is really possible to achieve anything you set your mind to.

If you're in need of a little motivation today, I've put together eleven of my favourite quotes using my own photos, to hopefully inspire the travel dreamer in you, and to get out there and live your best life.

Let's do this!

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.
