Travelling is tiring

Travelling is tiring

Travelling is tiring. I know it sounds ridiculous to many, but travelling is tiring. I know, you’re probably thinking, “Oh come on! You don’t have to work, you get to see awesome places, have freedom” etc. Yes, that’s true and I am not complaining at all. I am very grateful for all the travelling I have been able to do and I absolutely love it with a passion! But there are times when I just want to stop. Stop thinking…

My favourites of North Wales

My favourites of North Wales

I am no expert in travelling Wales at all, however, I do know that it has a LOT to offer. I lived and studied there for two years and during my road trip of the UK i thought i would show my Australian friend how beautiful it is. Snowdonia National Park: home to Mount Snowdon Whilst we were there the rain clouds decided to hang around the entire Snowdonia Mountain range which was a big shame as we only had…

Beautiful Paraty, Brazil

Beautiful Paraty, Brazil

          Beautiful. Colonial. Quaint. Different? Paraty is all of the above and so much more. Paraty is the first place I visited when entering Brazil and it gave me such a different view of the country. Before visiting South America I had a lot of expectations of Brazil, as would many others I  imagine. It is possibly the most well known country out of all South America, known for: tiny bikinis, attractive locals, fantastic sights and culture. We…

Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu: What to expect.

Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu: What to expect.

Tour company used: G Adventures. Wow. Where do I even begin when I start this encounter with the Sacred Valley and the Inca Trail hike? It’s one of them experiences where at the time you will question: Why am I doing this? Why did I pay to put myself through this? Will I make it to the end of this journey? Will it even be worth it at the end? So many questions and so many slips of positive mental…

Eating Vegan whilst travelling Peru: My experience

Eating Vegan whilst travelling Peru: My experience

Oh Peru, you little (well, not so little…) beauty you. Peru is such a brilliant country with such diversity. I arrived looking out onto rolling hills, stepped onto sandy beaches, swam in the ocean, sand boarded in the dessert, climbed mountains and finished with a boating tour of the incredible Lake Titicaca. It seriously has so much to offer and besides from scenery, the food in Peru was fantastic. I left Ecuador and entered Peru with no expectations but the…

Eating Vegan whilst travelling Ecuador: My Experience

Eating Vegan whilst travelling Ecuador: My Experience

Having been fully vegan for just one year this was my first time backpacking as a vegan. Lots of people had asked me how I would manage out here in a country that predominantly eats a lot of meat but I assured them I would be fine and I’d manage. Despite being vegan, when I’m eating out and food is out of my control (to some extent) I am not a fussy eater. As long as I have food in…

My time in Ecuador: In brief

My time in Ecuador: In brief

“Squeaaaak!!” “Squeaaaak!!” That is the sound of the brakes squeaking on the bus, running straight through my body giving me shivers every 5 seconds. I’m currently sat on a 8-9 hour (well according to our tour guide it could be anything from 6-7-8-9 hours so who knows) bumpy bus ride to my home for the next month – Peru. Leaving beautiful Ecuador behind I want to give a bit of a summary of my time here (I’ll TRY and keep…

Chocolate Cafe: Huanchaco – Peru

Chocolate Cafe: Huanchaco – Peru

Greetings from Huanchaco – Peru ! I have had just two days here in Huanchaco and I have absolutely loved this place. One of its winning points (along with so many, of course!) is this absolute gem of a cafe: Chocolate Cafe. When walking and exploring this “old fishing town”, I came across this tucked away beauty, hidden beneath the bushes. I went inside and it had cute little hideaway spaces which people were occupying reading books and sipping on…
