How to eat healthily while travelling solo - cause it's harder than you think.

How to Eat Healthily when Travelling Solo

I have always wanted to eat healthily during my travels. And I started with a firm resolution when I embarked on my world trip, I promise! But when I realised that New Zealand bell peppers would cost me $3 each and a can of spaghetti 60c, I was seriously torn. Every now and then I […]

Healthy Eating Habits for Your Travels You Haven't Thought About

Healthy Eating Habits for Your Travels You Haven’t Thought About

I am always hungry. Tell me I am not alone. Funnily enough, the more I travel and actively explore new sites throughout the day, the more I forget to eat. Oh, and I rarely have healthy eating habits. You can blame it on the jetlag messing up my inner clock or on my cheapskate travel […]

How to Keep Fit to Travel Actively

Summer is here and even though I am not one to stress over the bikini bod (chocolate is worth it much more than starving yourself, if you ask me) and am perfectly out of shape as you have probably guessed from my many hiking posts about Mount Amos in Tasmania, the Heart Attack Hill at […]

Brexit & Travel – What Will Change for UK and EU Citizens?

So Britain is out. Not sure we can call it Great Britain much longer seeing the new probabilities of Scotland and Northern Ireland wanting to become independent now more than ever. Political impact aside, what does this mean for us travellers? Or more specifically, what does it mean for British travellers and expats? Brexit and […]

Awesome Souvenirs from around the World Worth Buying

It’s no secret that I am no fan of souvenirs. Not the typical suspects anyway. Give me a typical food item over a key ring any day as a souvenir from your trip. Buy me something silly yet useful, like a mafia apron from Sicily or a Cadbury chocolate from England instead of little attraction […]

Tokyo's Cherry Blossoms 3

Are these 10 Cherry Blossom Watching Spots in Tokyo Worth It?

So I missed it by a day, but that does not mean that I completely failed my mission of chasing down the sakura and doing some cherry blossom watching. I located the best places to admire the splendour of the hundreds and thousands of cherry trees in full bloom. If you ever get to Tokyo […]
