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

If 2020 has taught us anything it’s that no - we don’t have all the time in the world. The start of the new decade was like any other year - families parted ways after Christmas celebrations and travelled home, adventurers looked ahead to all their exciting holiday plans and many were busy assessing how many trips they could squeeze out of annual leave.

It’s natural to be feeling like life has come to a standstill - because it has! With the majority of borders closed, flights being cancelled and the world staying indoors, 2020 hasn’t exactly been what we all expected. Whether you are working from home, self-isolating or under strict quarantine, now more than ever we need as much inspiration from within our own walls as possible. Thankfully, we are living in a digital age and it’s never been a better...

What to pack for a trip to Patagonia

Patagonia is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited - in fact I am still longing to return one day! I travelled on the Tucan Travel Patagonia Highlights tour in November 2019 and spent the weeks running up to my holiday gazing at photos of mountains and trying to plan what I should pack. Patagonia has an unforgiving climate, and I read that the weather changes daily (I can confirm - it does!), not to mention...

Patagonia is the wild child of South America, nestled deep in the south of the continent straddling both Chile and Argentina. Coated in mountains, forests, lakes, glaciers and more, the rugged region has been attracting keen hikers for decades. Having just embarked on my own Patagonian adventure for two weeks, I have compiled a list of what you should expect if you're planning a trip to Patagonia.
