Hello St Kitts – the Authentic Caribbean Island

Hello St Kitts – the Authentic Caribbean Island

I’m just back from a week in St Kitts, a small, but perfectly formed island, in the Caribbean. It’s one of the oldest colonised territories, and tiny, at just 23 miles long by 5 miles wide sitting where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic Ocean. Think beaches of soft white sand lined with palm trees and lapped by warm turquoise seas. The island’s friendly people are always ready with a smile or a wave and there’s a constant beat of Reggae as the island’s backtrack which goes perfectly with a rum punch. But there’s more to St Kitts than this laid-back Caribbean vibe. So. Much. More.

Sedona – Hikes, Views and Vortexes

Sedona, Arizona is billed as one of the most beautiful places on earth. The town is surrounded by a stunning landscape perfect for hiking and trail walking. Think red rock vistas, rust coloured pinnacles and sandstone columns set against cobalt blue skies. We couldn’t wait to set off on some Sedona hikes and trails.

But there’s more to Sedona than its red-hued views and hiking trails. The area is also known for what you can’t see – its spirituality, vortexes, and energy fields.

Seligman, Arizona – Kicks and Kitsch on Route 66

Seligman, Arizona on Route 66 was the quirkiest stop on our US Road Trip and a total eye-popper. The longest surviving section of America’s iconic road starts in Seligman and runs 160 miles to Topock, Arizona. It would be wrong to take a US Road Trip without eating up a few miles of tarmac on the Mother Road and Seligman was the perfect stop for Route 66 kicks.
