Travel Diary: Cycling the Galapagos Islands on the island of Santa Cruz

Our final day in the Galapagos Islands was an active one. We hired bikes for $15 for the day complete with helmets and a tool kit (I'm still impressed with being given a tool kit!). Here's where we wound up on our trip cycling the Galapagos Islands! Cycling the Galapagos Islands Our destination was El Garrapatero beach on the Eastern side of Santa Cruz, 21km away. There were some steep hills in the mix too; a ...

Things to do on Santa Cruz in the Galapagos Islands

Santa Cruz island is one of the biggest islands in the Galapagos. It's also where you'll find Peurto Ayora, the main base for tourists. We spent 8 nights in the Galapagos and got to know Peurto Ayora and Santa Cruz pretty well. There are many companies offering tours of Santa Cruz but these, like everything else in the Galapagos, don't come cheap ($50-$90 a day each). Instead we toured Santa Cruz ourselves for $18 each. ...

The shoes you need for trail adventures this summer

I do a lot of walking. It’s literally my job. As a dog walker in Vancouver I spend my days walking and cycling to tire dogs (and myself) out. And then, if that’s not enough, I love spending my weekends in the forests and mountains near Vancouver. I need shoes that are comfortable, allow flexibility for cycling and aren’t going to have me falling face first into mud (which has happened!). Now that it’s coming ...

Things you hear in Marrakech’s Jemaa el Fna at night

If you've visited Marrakech you're bound to have spent some time walking around the Jemaa el fna at night and during the day. Jemaa el Fna is Marrakech's main square and is well worth a wonder.

10 Reasons I Fell In Love With Gothenburg

When I picked Gothenburg as the destination for a Christmassy weekend away I had no idea how much I'd love it. I'd got excited reading about the Christmas market, and even more excited when I discovered you could escape the city and be out in the archipelago in under 30 minutes, but little did I know I'd love the city as much as I did. As soon as we walked off the plane I was ...

5 foods to eat in Cologne

You know me, I love my food. This is especially true when travelling! On my recent weekend in Cologne I didn't really know what to expect when it came to food. German's don't exactly have the best reputation. They're mainly known for their sausages but (whilst there is a German sausage or two on this list) it's not all about sausages. And hey, even if it is - they're just too good to turn down sometimes! Flammekuchen ...

Burst mode Vs 4k photo

I’ve been out and about playing with the 4k photo modes on my Lumix TZ-100 camera again and having a great laugh while doing so. Did you know that 4k photo helps you levitate? Well, maybe not exactly… When I posted about 4k photography after my break in Cologne, I got a lot of questions asking why 4k photography was different to just using burst mode. That’s something I asked myself when I first began ...

YOTEL Hotel Review

I definitely favour cheap flights at unsociable hours over more expensive flights at "normal" times of the day (much to my boyfriend's dismay). It's not just that they're cheaper, it's also that they arrive early giving you extra time in your destination. This is ideal for those of us who love weekend breaks. However, even I'm not a fan of getting a night bus across London to ensure I'm at an airport by 4am. My ...

Eating (and drinking) in the Dordogne Valley

If France has a reputation for one thing it’s the food and drink. From the cheeses to the wines, the champagne and the charcuterie, croissants, macarons and more. Each region, or départment, of France has its own specialities and you simply can’t visit France without filling your belly with as much food as possible. The Dordogne Valley is no exception to this. In fact, besides being home to France’s most beautiful villages, it’s widely considered ...
