Day Trip to Gozo Island In Malta

Included in the package I bought for visiting the Blue Lagoon in Comino, was a day trip to Gozo, and if something’s included, it’d be rude not to take advantage of that, right? Right! So after spending the morning diving in and out of those glorious Comino blues, I dried off on deck, got changed […]

Exploring Comino’s Blue Lagoon Malta

It’s no secret that the Blue Lagoon in Malta is strikingly beautiful. I mean, look at it. Water so clear it looks as though it was photoshopped… In Europe! It’s pretty rare to find water that shade of blue, this side of the world, so it should come as no surprise that whilst I was […]

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. I had taken the bus to Mdina for a day of exploring, and getting off at Ir-Rabat the walls of the […]

Swimming At St. Peter’s Pool

After spending a rainy morning exploring Valletta, the weather in Malta decided to bless me 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 I left the Sliema Roman Baths. You see, I had a day of Maltese explorations planned, but no real plan within it—just the way I like it. The only thing I did know is that my next stop was the […]

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 in Malta—and in […]

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 I realised I hadn’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 being able to say that comes from an […]

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 my 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 […]

Walking Around Venice

After hopping on the train from Rome, it wasn’t long before I found myself slap bang in the middle of a new city—walking around Venice. But before we get to that part, let’s rewind a little. After spending four days in Rome taking in as many sights and flavours as I could manage, I packed […]

Visiting St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City

Visiting St Peter’s Basilica was something I almost didn’t do. After spending the morning exploring the Vatican Museums I very much had information fatigue and wasn’t sure I could take any more in. But it was our last full day in Rome which meant it was the only time S and I had left to […]

Vatican City Museums

“When in Rome.” It’s a sentence used by many. Whether as a dismissal for eating ”too much” pizza, devouring too much gelato (is there such a thing?) or when you wanna do something a little risky (or risque *wink wink*) and need an excuse for a lil’ encouragement. OR It’s a sentence that, when actually […]

St Peter’s Square, Vatican City

Featuring towering columns that surround you, almost like arms embracing you inside the world’s smallest country, is St Peter’s Square—otherwise known as Piazza San Pietro. Perhaps one of the most famous squares, St Peter’s Square has become quite the gathering spot for tourists—and with its location inside the Vatican City, just in front of St […]

Ragno D’oro

Ragna D’oro was a place that S found whilst we were in Rome.     It’s funny, when we’re in England S tends to leave the dining out options to me. I’ll usually get an “anywhere’s good”, an “I don’t mind” or a “wherever you want babe” when I ask where he’d like to go out […]

Roman Colosseum

You can’t picture Rome without the Colosseum. Tall, magnificent and steeped in history both culturally and visually. The Colosseum has been in films, music videos and fashion shows so the Colosseum, otherwise known as Colosseo, is quite the monument! It’s iconic. So it was a must that when S and I flew to Rome, that […]

Best Tiramisu in Rome

Finding the best tiramisu in Rome is a challenge I happily accepted. Even though it was a challenge that I very much gave to myself.     You see, after exploring the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, my plantar fasciitis (killer pain on the underneath of my foot) flared up, which very much put walking […]

Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

Visiting the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill was something which occurred, somewhat, by accident. There we were roaming around, as one does whilst in Rome, when we came across the stairs to the Capitoline Museums. You see, whenever we travel S and I have a tendency to want to see certain areas and attractions, but […]

Trying Cannoli In Rome

Sampling my first cannoli in Rome was a messy experience. Ok, so technically I ate cannolo because I only ate one. But before we get to that, let’s rewind a little. I remember reading a post by Adventurous Kate a few years ago. I couldn’t tell you what the post was about, only that she […]
