    Why You Should Book A Trip To Madeira, Portugal This Summer

    Madeira is a small Portuguese island floating off of the coast of Portugal, Spain and Morocco. Renowned for its mountainous scenery, vibrant orange roofed houses, unique toboggan run and splendid Madeiran cake, wine and cuisine, this island has a lot to offer its visitors.

    Although Madeira has been branded as a holiday destination for the ‘elder generation’, my trip with my family in early June confirmed that this unspoiled, quiet gem has a lot to offer any holidaymaker who enjoys a less touristy destination with phenomenal walking opportunities, quaint cobbled high streets and welcoming locals.

    New York’s Must Eats

    When I visited my best friend, Fiona in her new stomping ground, New York she planned a jam-packed itinerary based solely around the Big Apple’s mouth-watering food scene – what a friend.

    Ten days and ten pounds later, we had eaten our way across Manhattan sampling everything from calorific Chicago deep pan pizza to succulent, zesty chicken taco shells.

    And although my waistline begs to differ, the indulgence was worth every calorie.

    To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,

    This week we’ve been exploring Siem Reap in Cambodia.

    As I’d already bullied my best friend, Fiona into getting an overnight bus from Koh Samui to Bangkok, Lizzie, Spence and I thought we’d be great friends and stay in Siem Reap for a week and a bit so that she didn’t have to endure another lengthy journey – aren’t we kind.

    Postcards Home – Week 42

    To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,

    If you’ve been keeping up to date with my Instagram pics, you’ll know that I was a big big fan of Singapore.

    I didn’t have many expectations for the country other than a few recommendations I’d been given by friends and other travellers. Therefore, I was so surprised by how much I loved it – why hadn’t I been there before!?

    An Expat’s Guide to the Cafes in Auckland, New Zealand

    Auckland has an awesome cafe scene.

    As soon as I started working at the cafe in Cornwall Park, I began to notice how much the cafe prided itself on amazingly crafted coffee and food (the mention of instant coffee in trendy ol’ Auckland is taboo) and wondered how it varied at my work to other cafes in the city. So, I took it upon myself to find out – I’m nice like that.
