If I had to use one word to describe myself, other than painfully organised, it would have to be cautious! And yes the exclamation point is necessary! Ok that one went a bit far. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I’m a person who likes to evaluate risk; think Ruben in Along Came...Read More
Colombia still has a notorious reputation across the world, spawned by its booming cocaine business that fed the USA for a number of years and is only just starting to be overturned. With an uneven balance of power between private landowners and the government, there was a feeling of tentative authority when I visited. The...Read More
When was the last time you went off-grid? Like back to basics, no phone, no 3G, no home comforts off-grid? My guess is that it’s been a while. But today the idea of escaping it all, if only for a while, is a nostalgic notion which we all secretly long for in our hectic on...Read More
Sensitive skin can be one of life’s real bugbears, from oily and spotty to dry and patchy it’s a saga that never seems to end. But if sensitive skin is a tiresome enough affliction to live with on a daily basis, it’s a complete and utter nightmare when it comes to being in the sun....Read More
The recent troubles in Belgium, terrorists squatting there like an insidious mould that just won’t shift, may discourage many people from visiting.

For me, the anticipation of travelling is more stressful than the travelling itself. Once I’m through security and dragging my lightweight bag through the airport I’ll be in the zone, the travelling zone, and as long as nothing goes wrong I’ll be fine. Hopefully I won’t have to think on my feet at all, because...Read More
No matter how much research we do prior to our holidays, we are always somewhat apprehensive as to what to expect. Spending hours reading positive reviews about your hotel on Trip Advisor isn’t always a guarantee that it will be the luxury you are expecting. The journey from the airport to your hotel is full...Read More

There are some people who can casually stroll through their international travels on a wing and a prayer. Hell, they don’t even need the prayer.
