A Singapore food tour! Oh my goodness! I can't believe we have not thought to do these tours when travelling before now. Food is such a big part of our travels.

Welcome To Singapore – Our First 24 Hours

After spending just 24 hours in Singapore we found ourselves asking - why had we not visited sooner?

Following a stressful and...

Champlung Sari Hotel – A Unique Stay In The Heart Of Ubud | Review

We have stayed in some pretty unique places over the years, but none quite like our stay in the heart of Ubud at Champlung Sari Hotel in Bali.

Do you really need travel insurance?

Do you really need travel insurance? This question has always been a no-brainer for us. Yes! Yes! A thousand times YES! Sure, you probably won't end up needing it. At least you hope you won't! But what if you do? And what if you don't have it? That small investment you could have should have made is nothing compared to...

Bali Bird Park – Where Birds And People Meet (Literally)!

Bali Bird Park - WOW! We didn't really know what to expect visiting Bali Bird Park. We had heard very little about it and didn't know much more than the fact that it was a bird sanctuary housing over 1000 birds.

Kidnapped In Paris……?

It goes without saying that you probably shouldn't watch 'Alive' or 'Cast Away' before catching a plane. Maybe don't watch 'Speed' right before you're due to take a journey on a bus. And definitely not a good idea to watch 'Jaws' when a trip to the beach is on the cards. But it doesn't stop there. Especially if you...
