Four cool places I have stayed

Through my years of travelling, I have loved to stay in a range of different accommodation types depending on the situation, mood or just what seemed the right idea at that particular time. I don’t often do collective posts like this, but looking back I am delighted to have stayed in some truly cool and exciting places with lots of diversity. And hopefully, also a...

The do it yourself Eco-Adventure, Iguacu falls, Brazil

“One way to get the most out of life, is to look upon it as an Adventure – William Feather”. This is the statement that I base my life on. In fact, anything that sounds like an adventure, and I am on it. So when I was told of an ‘Eco-Adventure’ I could do whilst exploring the Iguacu Falls in Brazil; I was sold on it. The Eco Adventure in...

Chasing waterfalls at the Iguaçu Falls, Brazil

Louis Armstrong famously sung a song entitled, ‘What a Wonderful World’  and it is just that, isn’t it? After all, there are several lists which state all the wonders of the World (and we all love a good list, don’t we?) There used to be just one list of wonders of the World.

In most places, you’ll get a menu, choose something that sounds nice, and it’ll be served to you. When travelling in countries were English is not the primary language, this can be a little challenging. In the...

Exploring the street art of Vila Madalena, São Paulo

The hipster movement is literally taking over the World. It is a contemporary subculture that is continually evolving. It may be slightly different in various parts of the World, but is generally associated with the arty, and trendy types. If you live in London, Shoreditch is were you’ll gravitate to as a hipster, and for New York, it is all about Williamsburg...

Walking the largest city in South America: Sao Paulo Free Walking Tour

When you think about large cities, places like New York, or London will often come to mind. However, these are not the most populated cities in the World (though they nearly are in their respective continents). When planning my trip to Brazil, a lot of people warned me away from Sao Paulo. ‘It is a bit of a beast’ they said. ‘Full of skyscrapers and...
