My One Travel Regret

‘Regret’ is not usually a word I would place alongside ‘travel’. In my deep personal thoughts, however, I’ve come to believe that the more I see of the world, the more I seem to miss.

How to decide where to go on a short trip to Europe

Europe may not be large in size compared to other continents across the world, but it definitely is enormous in what it offers for travelers. If you have months of time to travel through Europe, then deciding where to go might not be too big of an issue. But if you’re one of the majority of us with a two or – if you’re lucky – three week vacation period, it can be tricky to decide where to visit. Here, I’ve tried to make that decision a little bit easier (but seriously, good luck!)

Top 5 friendliest countries to travel solo

Taking the leap of faith to start traveling on your own can be quite daunting, especially when heading to a foreign country for the first time. I can say from experience that the environment you surround yourself in can make or break a trip, especially when you don’t have someone to fall back on during a tough time. So to help you decide where to go on your first solo ‘vacay’, here’s a list of some of the friendliest countries in the world to make sure it’s a good one!

Falling in love with Rome on my second visit

Well, technically third. But I hardly count visiting at 3 years old. My first visit to Rome that I remember was on a Contiki tour in winter 2013. I think this is where the main problem lied, as Contiki’s are rushed and we only had one full day to explore the city. Read more about what I think about Contiki tours here. After visiting Florence and falling in love with its Italian style, I expected Rome to be similar, but even more amazing. I was let down then, until my second visit when I did a complete backflip and would now call it one of my favorite cities.

Why you cant miss a trip to Fremantle

I had never been to Perth before this week. The only major city sitting on the Western coast of Australia and the capital of the state of Western Australia. I was eager to check out Perth before we embarked on our MSC Orchestra cruise, but with my family not being able to get any more time of work, we landed in Perth on the day of departure with no time to explore. We did, however, have a bit of time to check out Fremantle and it was an absolute delight.
