Every female nomad has her own travel style. Mine is deluxe backpacking on a budget; meaning I seek out the most comfortable ways to travel (think high-end hostels and first-class bus seats), as inexpensively as possible. I genuinely prefer the simple pleasures and camaraderie of budget travel, as opposed to indulging in swanky hotels, but I still want those occasional little luxuries that are going to make globetrotting just that bit easier….

The lively city of Buenos Aires has so much to offer a first-time visitor, choosing which sights, activities and events to see first is no easy task. Sensual tango shows, the world’s tastiest steak, touring the Boca Juniors Football Stadium, and visiting infamous Evita’s tomb, are just a few of your options.
It’s a country filled with the remains of Mayan cities, and Mexico’s most famous is without a doubt Chichen Itza; one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Now, let me begin by saying that Chichen Itza is absolutely impressive. Having visited twice, the iconic towering Temple of Kukulkan never fails to capture my awe for it’s clever mathematical design and the legendary appearance of a serpent at equinox twice a… Read More

Granted, in many ways, world travel is one continuous holiday. However, what’s less clear to see on an Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook feed,… Read More
If you read the bios of other travel bloggers out there, you’ll find most have one thing in common; they are people that gave up everything to travel the world and lead a nomadic life. I am fairly new to this club, and in fact I plan to arrive in Australia towards the middle of 2016 to work and live, so maybe I’m not 100% committed just yet. If 2015 has taught… Read More
When I was a girl my Dad used to tell me to do two things in life; go to university and travel the world. Naturally, the fact my Dad told me to want these things for myself meant I wanted to do neither. It wasn’t until I was sixteen and about to go to college that I warmed to the idea of university and aged nineteen I moved away to study. It… Read More
