Along with a number of other bloggers, I was invited to Puglia for the 61st annual Carnevale di Manfredonia, for a weekend of celebrations, Italian food, elaborate costumes and colourful characters. It was my first ever Carnival and now I know why so many people look forward to it! I may not have made it [...]
While I’m generally a bit of a nomad, I have lived the expat life from time to time. Several years ago I lived in Bali where I eventually found a job making event videos, and I once lived in Portugal where I worked a season working in bars and restaurants. Recently, I submitted my top [...]
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 [...]
The UK has so many fantastic spots to visit and although I spend much of my time traveling abroad, I do love a good ‘staycation’.

I find myself coming back to a city that has been transformed over the last few years…some restaurants have closed, new ones have [...]

I’ve flown lots of airlines over the years but this was my first time travelling with them, so I’ve documented the whole experience in this flight review. The Route On the way to Barbados the [...]
