A travel blog makes a fabulous online travel journal. It’s a great way to document trips and adventures and be able to look back on them and re-live the experience.

My blog has evolved over the years from a personal travel journal. It’s now a way to share my experiences and inspire others to travel. It’s also a great way to share destination tips and guides which help others to plan their own trips. The blog is also my own personal travel photography portfolio. I hope people find it useful as well as inspiring.

Si Como No, Eco-Resort in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica – Review

Si Como No resort and wildlife refuge is a sustainable resort in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.  Read on for my Si Como No review to find out why we fell big time for this Manuel Antonio eco resort.

Si Como No Eco-Resort, Costa RicaView from Si Como No terrace

Si Como No resort and wildlife refuge was the main­ reason we stayed three extra nights in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. We had two nights booked at Si Como No and three more nights until we were due to fly home. The plan was to drive further down the coast and book in somewhere else. Fifteen minutes sat on our balcony was all it took to decide to spend the remainder of our trip in this authentic Costa Rican eco-resort. What does  ‘Si Como No‘ mean? It means ‘yes, why not’. So we did.

Osprey Farpoint 40 Review – best carry on backpack

Osprey Farpoint 40 Review – best carry on backpack

Osprey Farpoint 40 review – find out why this is my favourite backpack for travelling, weekends away and city breaks. My new forever rucksack.

I have a thing about luggage. From carry-on to hold luggage from backpacks and wheeled duffels to hard-shell suitcases and day packs. In my cupboard I have packs within, wheelie bags within duffels within suitcases – the luggage version of Russian dolls. I’ve tried them all. But now that I’ve found the perfect backpack in the Osprey Farpoint I’ll be getting rid of a pile of old rucksacks and sticking to this one.

Cobblers Cove – Beautiful Barbados Boutique Hotel

Cobblers Cove – Beautiful Barbados Boutique Hotel

Barbados in February. Does it get any better?  White powdery sand, turquoise seas, wall-to-wall sunshine, rum punch and reggae. That’s what I was expecting from my first visit to Barbados in the Caribbean when we jetted off from a cold, grey Gatwick last month.

The island was happy to oblige and ticked all the boxes but she also threw in a few happy surprises including the wonderful Barbados boutique hotel Cobblers Cove. and further round the island the wild and dramatic scenery of the East Coast beaches.

Iberostar Grand Portals Nous Pool

The Majorca boutique hotel scene has a new addition. Stepping through billowing white curtains into the grounds of Iberostar Grand Hotel Portals Nous felt like walking into a luxury fragrance ad.

Everywhere is so pristinely white and stylishly radiant at this Majorca boutique hotel that I almost expected Charlize Theron to come wafting across the terrace in a cloud of mimosa. I didn’t have time to ponder this much before being welcomed into the Selini Bar where a glass of crisp Moet accompanied check-in. The attention to detail is impeccable.
