What’s It Like to Explore Scotland With Haggis Adventures?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how much I loved exploring the Hebrides with Haggis Adventures. Scotland was already one of my favourite places in the world and a place where I spent some of the best vacations of my childhood, and my trip to the Hebrides with Haggis Adventures just validated that Deep…

Hopping Around the Hebrides With Haggis Adventures

I’ve been feeling the ‘Deep Scottish Love’ since I was seven years old. That was the year that I was introduced to Scotland in a trip that featured sitting on a canon outside a 13th-century castle (Duart Castle on the Isle of Mull — still one of my favourites!) and my younger brother trying to…

Queuing at Wimbledon: How To Get Into Centre Court (and Have Fun Doing It)

Nobody queues quite like the British, and nowhere do they do it better than at Wimbledon. This oldest of Grand Slams has moved into the 21 st century in leaps and bounds in the last 10 years with a highly-publicised move to equal prize money in 2007 and a brand-new roof on Centre Court to…

My 13 Best Photos of 2013

It’s the time of year that all bloggers start trotting out their “best of” posts to show off what they’ve been up to during the year. Since 2013 was quite an eventful year for me–one where I quit my job and travelled to 13 countries, only 4 of which I’d visited before–I felt that, of…

Concussed in Winchester

In June 2004, I went to England with my family on our biennial trip to visit my grandparents. All through the 90s and early 2000s, going on one of these trips meant six fun-filled weeks in the British Isles during which we spent time in the seaside town of Cleethorpes, went to London to visit…

Do I Go Back Or Do I Go Somewhere New?

Every time you book a trip, there is a choice. Do you go back somewhere you’ve been before or head off somewhere new? Sure, for a lot of people this choice doesn’t even register. Why go somewhere you’ve already seen? Surely it’s changed and just isn’t as good as it used to be. Plus, there’s…

Where Did I Go In 2011?

My 2011 would not have been considered a very busy travel year for a full-time traveller, but it was a busy travel year for me since I did it all in my allotted leave from a full-time job. That’s yet another upside of living in Australia: it’s legally required that we get 4 weeks of…
