Iguazu Falls

One of the main highlight’s of South America is visiting Iguazu Falls, its centre located between two countries, Argentina and Brazil. It is one of the largest waterfall systems in the world, containing 275 water drops which span over 2.7km. Which side? We did both! The Brazilian Side: We chose to visit the Brazilian side first, travelling from Sao Paulo …

Paraty

After a busy past few weeks, by the time we reached Paraty we just wanted to relax and watch the world go by. We unpacked our bags and set about making ourselves comfortable on the new hammock chairs (Yes, seats like hammocks!!), we were in chair heaven. They say Paraty is a picturesque town, full of cobbled streets and located …

Ilha Grande

An island where first impressions were close to an overpriced version Koh Phi Phi, Thailand (if anyone else has been there, I think you’d agree). Let’s just say that that first impressions were not the same as the last, Ilha Grande really captivated us and knew how to draw us in with it’s beauty. An island full of hidden gems …

So it begins… Rio de Janeiro

A whirlwind first week. Who would have thought that we would have been laying out our quick dry towels amongst the deck chairs and umbrellas on Copacabana Beach, soaking up the Portuguese lingo whilst enjoying a delicacy, the Caipirinha. Not me two years ago! Here we are, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We made it, and contrary to belief, in …

Home Street Home

I’m currently sat in a café on a ferry at St Peter Port, Guernsey. For those of you that don’t know, the Channel Islands. We are just waiting for the boat to embark onto our destination, Jersey! The guinea pigs (piglets) are in the car, with any luck sleeping however I think that is wishful thinking, more like gnawing anything …

Roadtrip to Scotland

Scotland: A country full of history, enchanted forests, beautiful landscapes and many lochs. Honestly, until last year, we never thought about visiting Scotland. It never made it onto our bucket list. I think with Scotland being so close to home we overlooked it and never truly encapsulated it’s beauty. For the typical UK resident, travelling overseas to a warmer climate …

Thailand

I like to think Thailand was where it began. It was our first introduction to backpacking abroad and a good introduction it was. We had planned most of the itinerary beforehand as we only had just over two weeks to explore Thailand. We aimed to fit in enough as possible without jumping from city to city so we could get …

Day Trip to Ayutthaya

  It was an early start by train from Bangkok to Ayutthaya. We booked our train tickets the day before at Bangkok train station. Just in case your confused, they have an office specially designed for tourists to help you organise your travel!  Ayutthaya is an ancient capital that used to be one of the largest cities of the world. …
