Is It Worth Visiting Basilicata in Italy?

‘I’ve never heard of Basilicata, really,’ a friend of mine said shaking his head as he poured me a cup of tea while I was too busy scoffing my face with Hob Nobs. I had just told him I was going to be visiting Basilicata in Italy in a few days. Offering my thanks as I accepted my hot beverage from him, I wiped the crumbs off my shirt and asked him why he hasn’t heard of Basilicata. ‘People don’t...

Brighton: Through Rexy’s Eyes

As the train roared back into Brighton station from my 9-5 job, there was nothing better than to walk through the snazzy streets of the city with its colour and smells attacking my senses to wake me up from the monotony of staring at computer screen all day. In the warm dusk glow, I would stroll around to somewhere randomly in the hope of starting up my evening before returning home. Whether it was to North Laines, the sea front, the...

Ten Places in Brighton You Must Absolutely See

I’ve lived in Brighton for four months and I do believe that the city is one of the best places for tourists to visit and locals to explore their hometown. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and I loved showing my visitors around much to their surprise how much they experienced this coastal English resort place. Now, that I have left the city and moved back up north, I think it’s high time to show you what I believe...

Piers and Queers Tour of Brighton

‘Ah, dear Brighton. Piers, queers and racketeers,’ Ric simply uttered the immortal line from Noel Coward who took this keen observation of this southern English coastal city. Ric was our tour guide for the ‘Piers and Queers Tour,’ in which we would sightsee Brighton from a lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer perspective whilst learning what happened in this colourful city over the last 200 years along the pebbly...

Review: The Cumberland Hotel, London

The letters spelling out ‘The Cumberland Hotel‘ stood in stark contrast in the deep blue sky with only a few wisps of a cloud to hang over London. Shouldering my backpack in front of the Marble Arch monument and ultimately the Underground Station stop on the Central Line. If you came out of the tube station, you would only need to turn right and voila here you are! I won a one night free stay in this classy London hotel...

I’m working in partnership with the Luxembourg Tourism Board to promote ‘budget travel’ in what is reputed to be the most expensive place in Europe thanks to the legions of investment banking and tax-free havens. You’d think backpackers and budget travellers wouldn’t...

Who’s THAT Travel Blogger?! – Amar of GapYear Escape

Before I went on my RTW travels, I could be often found stalking other travel blogs but what really interested me was the travel blogger behind the witticisms of their writing. Who are they? Are they real? Are they fit? So hence, for a long time coming, I wanted to do some travel blogging interviews and crack them open for their rawness inspiration of travel inside. Think Michael Parkinson.   When I recently attended a London...
