Trying out the local cuisine might just be one of the best parts of exploring a new country. With so much on offer to tickle your taste buds it can be difficult to narrow it down and you might just come home 10 pounds heavier (but that’s the joy of holidays right?) Traveling as a vegetarian can be challenging at times, especially when the waiter gives you that confused look when you tell them "no, you also don’t eat chicken, it’s meat too" (we’ve all...

Getting to Machu Picchu is a huge part of the experience. Many follow the well-trodden Inca Trail, a four day trek which includes camping en route. Others may prefer the quieter Lares Trek, four days travelling through traditional Andean villages along the way. But what if you don’t have time to do...

Sri Lanka is increasingly becoming high on people’s travel hit list. This is no wonder why when the Teardrop Island offers history, culture, beaches, wildlife spotting and spectacular scenery in one place.
