As a travel blogger WiFi is my everything. This might sound like I have a problem and need to go to Internet Addicts Anonymous, but it’s the oxygen of blogging. The first thing a blogger tends to ask upon entering a restaurant or a hotel is “Do you have WiFi?” or “What’s the Wi-fi password?” [...]
If I had to name my favourite social media network it would have to be Instagram. I love the simplicity of it; sharing beautiful photos and following other people’s lives through the power of photography. It’s fantastic for travel photos and I often get inspired to go somewhere (or eat something!) just by looking at [...]
Recently a company called Bimuno sent me a sample of their Bimuno TRAVELAID to test out and review; this dietary supplement is supposed to support your tummy while abroad and help prevent things like digestive problems and traveller’s diarrhoea. While I seem to have a pretty good digestive system and I’ve generally been lucky with avoiding [...]

In Barbados I stayed at the Amaryllis Beach Resort, which is located in the Hastings area, just south of Bridgetown. The best thing about this hotel is its location; it’s a 15-20 minute drive from the airport and only a few minutes by car from all the attractions of Bridgetown. There’s also a bus stop right [...]
I love downloading apps for my iPhone, so when I was asked to review an app called WAM, I was intrigued. No it’s not dedicated to Wham! songs such as Last Christmas and Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, but the acronym for World Around Me- a travel app that allows you to explore your [...]
I’ve travelled with a lot of airlines, but I have to say Air New Zealand has one of the most impressive economy class cabins I’ve ever flown in. This year I’ve taken over 30 flights and I’m really becoming a bit of an airline geek these days. I’ve tried and tested the economy class on [...]

Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
