    Growing up in the welsh valleys, I’m quite used to hiking, camping and being deep within nature for long periods of time without having technology withdrawals. But the Thai Jungle located in Doi Inthanon in the North of Thailand was the most incredib

    I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.

    Of all the places I've been in Europe, Lisbon is one of my favorite cities. It is just so distinctly European - the hills, the roads, the beautiful yellow trams, the buildings, the churches, the culture, the cuisine, the little old ladies who as

    A few years ago, my family and I drove down to the state of Georgia to spend a week away from the hustle and bustle of life. We chose an out of the way destination, so that we didn't need to worry about crowds and other tourists.

    Wales often gets missed out of people’s UK travel itineraries and British must-see places and as much as I want to keep the stampede of tourists out so we can perserve the beauty of this country, it also frustrates me that travellers and UK visitors

    I've been to Europe now about 20 times for business and pleasure and while I have many favorites, Italy will always have a special place in my heart as it was the first country I visited back in the 90's. Just recently I was back to Venice

    A few weeks ago, my family and I were down in the Poconos region of Pennsylvania. We stayed in Shawnee-on-Delaware, and while there isn't much to do there, we managed to find a few diamonds in the rough.

    Last year, I lived in the FYROM for 6 months. I was there teaching English in a medium sized town. One of my favourite things about being in the Balkans is that there are a lot of countries tightly packed together, and it is easy to visit other coun

    There is nothing more magical than visiting Disney's Magic Kingdom, or at least that was what I thought for many years. Then I took my family there for the holiday season and I truly saw what magic was.

    We made it to Heidelberg today. This place is so charming it's impossible to take a bad picture! Any way you turn there are beautiful buildings, inviting patios, captivating shops, delicious cuisine and plenty of beer. What's not to love?

    Songkran is Thailands’ New Year and each year the festivities usually involve a nationwide water fight. In Bangkok, the streets are closed and everyone is armed with a water gun or two or just a big bucket of water.

    It doesn't take very long for a traveller to form observations about the people and destination they're visiting. These are generalizations based on tiny sample sizes and are often incorrect, but always amusing.

    I travel a lot, and I love being in new places, embroiled in new cultures. In fact, it's one of my favourite feelings.

    However, diving straight into Georgia in 2017, I felt like maybe I had bitten off more than I could chew.

    I’ve hiked down in the Grand Canyon twice already so when I took my friends there during another amazing USA Roadtrip, I blindfolded them, lead them to the edge so I could watch them cast their eyes onto the breath-taking views with build-up anticipa
