Jet off to Argentina and Brazil!

Escape the Northern Hemisphere and head to the summer delights of the Southern Hemisphere in South America at the end of the year. All eyes are focussed on the Latin Continent for the World Cup this year and its native countries are pulling out all the stops to ensure you have a travel experience to remember. In January 2013, I found myself back from around the world trip and I was truly traumatized by the winter that hit us in brutal...

Happy Mother’s Day, Mum

‘Make sure you go and travel the world while you’re young.’ My Mum imparted this advice to me when I was lanky 13-year-old pouring over maps with her to find out what the capital of Zambia was.

Best Sporting Holidays: 5 Not-to-be-Missed Events

Sporting Holidays?! You mean going on a ‘relaxing holiday’ to play sport?! That’s what I said whilst I laid in a stupor scratching my ever encroaching belly on the sofa whilst wearing sweats and watching a re-run of Loose Women. But to her credit, Katie put up a fight and reasoned that it was a sporting holiday to WATCH the sport. There, I perked up. Think of the camaraderie, the patriotism, the delicious snacks by...

#24SchipholKLM Schiphol Inspiration

As you know. last December I found myself gaining a bit of Schiphol Inspiration by spending 24 hours in Amsterdam’s very own Schiphol Airport being outrageously challenged by KLM UK, discovering 24 things to do in the bustling aviation structure, enjoying the panoramic sights of the runway at sunrise, checking out if the airport was really deaf friendly and more importantly getting free wine in the luxurious KLM Business Crown...
