Travel Talk with Anneka Lott from Lady in Liguria

Recently, I have been in awe over the number of female travellers there are, travelling solo. Recently, I met Anneka, at a female traveller blogger event in London. Anneka is Welsh, but spends part of her year in Liguria, Italy (which I shamefully had not heard of, until I met her). Anneka has a passion for Adventure, Food and Culture, and was recently nominated as a...

Visiting the Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi

My sister and I hadn’t planned much, if anything for our time in Abu Dhabi; and in true style, I hadn’t really researched. Abu Dhabi was a two night stop over on our way back to London, and we just wanted to rest, following a busy few weeks (for my sister, were she feel ill from the food), and 4 months (for me) in South East Asia. After relaxing by the...

Berlin to Dusseldorf by train

The station was buzzing, various platforms with trains going in all directions, people rushing about with suitcases and backpacks, and so many shops, I thought I was in a mall. I quickly located platform 14, and waited for my train. It was a bright, modern and clean platform; a far cry from any transportation centre in Asia. Today I would be boarding a train, that...

Travel Talk: A video with Marc from Germany

This week, I am doing things a little differently on Travel Talk, with a video interview. It is not everyday you meet someone that you click with in a few minutes. Perhaps this happens a little easier when you are actually travelling, but not always. When I got to Chiang Mai, after a short flight from Krabi, I entered a small hostel, run by an eccentric guy called...

English at a German Wedding

Weddings can be strange affairs, when you are single. There can be periods of awkward conversation with people, and whilst surrounded by couples, and those already married, or about to be married, you attempt to express how much more amazing your life is, as a singleton – well that’s what I have tended to do in recent weddings, mostly this consists of me...

Travel plans: Help us plan our trip to New York City

Recently I wrote about my next travel plans; this time, they include my youngest sister Jess, who turned 21 recently. The original plan was to reveal the destination on her birthday, with plans for that ranging from extravagant displays to simply wrapping up a guide book. Both of those seemed a little too far fetched and boring, so I decided to embark upon a little...

KP is constantly curious about the World and enjoys extended and slow travel, KP is currently based in Sydney Australia, where she is continuously exploring.

Getting a work visa in New Zealand

When I first arrived in New Zealand, I wasn’t planning to stay more than one year. “My plan” was to stay one year, hop over to Australia to work, then travel after another year. However, the longer I was in New Zealand, the more I fell in love with the place. The more I thought “I could live here.” I also felt a little sad when people...

Explore the elements: a photo contest

I can remember the day, I bought my first digital camera. I bought it online; it arrived well packaged. I carefully unwrapped it, and left it to charge. Once ready, I asked my mum if we could drive to the beach. I wanted to test it out. It was a Fujifilm, and 6.5 MP. I was in love! I was able to take as many photos as I liked, then delete them. Nowadays, I am using a...

Celebrating Holi Festival in London

It was slightly warm, Punjabi music was playing over the speaker system, and the colours; so many colours, were being thrown up in the air. Children were dancing and laughing together – it is Holi. Let’s celebrate! However, I am not in India. I am in London, at a small pop up event called Holi in the City, run by the staff at Cinnamon Kitchen, which is in...
