We know as much as the next person that staying at home is tough. Not only because we’re passionate travellers but also because we miss our family, friends and socialising in general. While the current situation is a whole new level of “challenging”, there are things to be thankful for.

Dream trips to plan for the future – Part 1

Wadi Rum - Jordan

Man reading book in Thailand

Books have a fantastic way of transporting the reader to a world and time other than their own. Whilst some stories take place in locations that we consider familiar, many manage to portray images of places, cultures and eras around the planet so vividly that they take us to lands that are totally foreign.

Victoria Falls – My Dramatic Introduction to Africa

Victoria Falls

As I took my first step off the plane in Livingstone, the cooling air con of the cabin was decimated by a wave of immense heat that baked the tarmac of the diminutive landing strip and rippled the horizon. An appropriate welcome to the hottest continent on the planet. Bleary eyed from a nap made restless by my immeasurable excitement during the flight, I passed through customs, gathered my luggage and headed for the tiny airport’s exit. As soon as I passed...
