I spent many a summer holiday as a kid down on the beautiful beaches of Cornwall visiting some of the best towns in Cornwall. Renowned for their pretty architecture, great food and, of course, pretty beaches, Cornwall is a popular holiday destination in the UK.

How to spend a layover in Mexico City

Our flight landed late in the evening on a Sunday night and left the following Monday evening. This meant we had ...

11 Mammoth Lakes hot springs: the best detour ever in California

This little detour resulted in us stumbling across some of the best Mammoth Lakes hot springs - one of my favourite moments from our 3 month road trip across America. I'd seen a picture on Instagram of some hot springs. They were geotagged as "Mammoth Lakes". The ...

An itinerary for Lake Como, Italy

Within just an hour of arriving on the banks of Lake Como I was already feeling relaxed and our Lake Como itinerary remained that way. Gone were the stresses of driving 3 hours from Bergamo airport on windy, narrow roads whilst dodging cars driving across both lanes, and dealing with an incompetent sat nav, and in stress’ place was a sense of calm. Perhaps it was the sound of the lake lapping gently at the ...

As much as I love exploring a city on foot, sometimes it's nice to pick the pace up a little bit and see more of your destination. I'm not talking about running - don't be crazy- but, rather, cycling! A cycle ride (especially when there are not too many hills) can actually be quite relaxing. You can breathe in the fresh air and get your heart racing but not too much so as to knacker ...

Our first experience of Southern Hospitality was when we pulled off the Interstate and strolled into the Louisiana welcome centre.

We loved it, and if you're looking for a New Orleans itinerary for 3 days, ...

15 Cheap & free things to do in Tulum, Mexico

I'm a budget traveller at heart and I can't quite bring myself to spend hundreds on one thing when I could find lots of cheap things to do when travelling. On our trip to Tulum, I wasn't concerned about visiting the luxury resorts in Tulum, or the expensive restaurants in Tulum, Mexico. I wanted some sun, sea, and great tacos. Luckily, that's pretty easy to find in Tulum and all of those are just some ...
