The Finnish Summer House

Travellers, let me tell you this, if you’re ever in London and have to catch the underground to the airport, try your very hardest to avoid rush hour. I learnt this the hard way and consequently found myself fighting my way onto the Jubilee line in order to make my flight at 11:00. I was … Continue reading The Finnish Summer House

Some (emotional!) Thoughts on Leaving Germany

  When I begun planning this trip late last year with my boyfriend, I came up with this crazy itinerary that took us through six continents and had us traipsing through at least 30-40 countries. We were going to start in South-East Asia and move through China into Europe. From Europe we were going to … Continue reading Some (emotional!) Thoughts on Leaving Germany

My Top Five Favourite Cities

As of right now, I don't have a place to call my home. Yeah, I have the house where my parents live and the tiny island of Mauritius where I grew up. I even have the city that claimed me during my university years but none of these places are really my home and after … Continue reading My Top Five Favourite Cities

The Little Greek Island an Hour from Athens: Agistri

The last two days in Greece quickly became my favourite time of the whole two month trip and it was all down to the little Island of Agistri.  My time in Greece was drawing to a close and the hope of seeing an Island grew dim as I trudged the grey, urine soaked streets of … Continue reading The Little Greek Island an Hour from Athens: Agistri

The Ten Worst Travel Photos I Have Taken

One of my favourite things to laugh at is people taking photos that I just know are going to be horrendous and/or boring. I even had the grand idea of starting a website dedicated to pictures of people taking super boring photos. Seeing as I primarily use my iPhone to take all my pictures, I … Continue reading The Ten Worst Travel Photos I Have Taken

The YouTubers that are Travelling the World

I love watching YouTube videos and over the past year YouTube has slowly overtaken movies,television and sometimes even books (!) as my most preferred form of killing a couple of hours. It started off with a couple of make-up tutorials here and there and before I knew it, I was watching a couple hours a day. I … Continue reading The YouTubers that are Travelling the World

Chalkidiki: A Cheaper Alternative to the Greek Islands

  Money is definitely not something in plentiful supply at the moment. In fact, finding twenty-cents in my pocket the other day was the richest I have felt in a long time. Unfortunately that twenty-cents is not about to transport me, or the team I am travelling with, to the Greek Islands. Those beautiful, postcard-worthy islands … Continue reading Chalkidiki: A Cheaper Alternative to the Greek Islands

It’s Been a Challenge (or why I haven’t been blogging)

Let's get real around here! This last month has been really, really hard and I haven't had the best time here in Greece. It is approaching eight months since I left home and it has been five weeks since I last wrote a blog post. This marks the longest time I have gone without writing … Continue reading It’s Been a Challenge (or why I haven’t been blogging)
