Mdina The Silent City of Malta

As I approached Rabat, I saw it from afar: Mdina The Silent City of Malta, sitting proudly atop the hill. Rooftops layered down to the walls and the roads which surrounded the fortified city.   S and I had taken the bus to Mdina for a day of exploring, and getting off at Ir-Rabat the […]

Swimming At St. Peter’s Pool

After spending a rainy morning exploring Valletta, the weather in Malta decided to bless us with some of that Maltese sunshine—and with a whole afternoon free I knew exactly where I wanted to spend it: St. Peter’s Pool. Located near Marsaxlokk on the south-eastern side of Malta, St. Peter’s Pool is a horse-shoe shaped rock […]

What To Do In Valletta

What to do in Valletta, was the thought wandering through my mind as soon as S and I had left the Sliema Roman Baths. You see, we had a day of Maltese explorations planned, but no real plan within it—just the way we like it. The only thing we knew was that our next stop […]

Sliema Roman Baths, Font Ghadir

Visiting the Sliema Roman Baths in Malta was something I did somewhat accidentally.     You see, after a day of roaming around Saint Paul’s Bay and relaxing at the Pebbles Resort Malta I was recharged and ready to spend the day exploring the island.   There were numerous places I wanted to visit whilst […]

Pebbles Resort Malta Review

On my first day in Malta, I arrived at Pebbles Resort Malta looking less than fresh-faced. It turns out that when you get up at 3am ready to hop on the first flight out of the UK to take a last-minute trip to Malta, you arrive at your hotel just a little bit dishevelled, a […]

Visiting Malta Last Minute

It’s not often you decide to randomly go to Malta last minute, but when S sat across from me and said the words “we haven’t taken a holiday in 9 months” I immediately got to planning.   You see, I tend to get restless after 3-4 months of not travelling, and yes, I know that […]

Salterns Way: My Favourite Cycling Route

Cycling along Salterns Way and catching the Bosham to Itchenor Ferry has officially become one of my favourite “it’s warm in England so I must be outside” activities. You see, as I’m sure you’re all aware, England isn’t the warmest of countries. It’s often grey (there’s no arguing that), but it’s also mild. With the […]

Visiting Hever Castle

Located in the heart of Hever in Kent, is Hever Castle. A place which began as a country house built in the 13th century, and on one summer’s day, became the destination of a road trip of me and one of my favourite Kiwis, Emma. We decided upon Hever Castle as it was the a […]

Spending Two Days In Venice

Spending two days in Venice was one of the highlights of my trip to Italy. You see, there are certain places you end up writing off your travel list without even looking as you assume it will be too expensive—and for me, Venice was one such place. But then came along the last minute travel […]

Things To Do In Murano, Venice

When I found myself in Venice for two days I couldn’t help but look for things to do in Murano. After spending our first day roaming around the city, getting lost in the labyrinth of walkways, I wanted day two to be a little bit different. To be a day of venturing further afield. Which […]
