Top 5 Things to do in Quito (Ecuador)

I’ll be honest here. I didn’t like Quito all that much (see this post if you’re wondering why.) However, there are still some cool things to do in the city and for that reason I thought I’d list my top 5 here today. Hopefully if you ever visit Quito you’ll find this post useful. (Please […]

Is Colombia still a dangerous country to travel?

I have to be honest here. I was a bit sneaky when announcing I was going to Colombia this year. Or rather, I didn’t announce I was going at all. I just updated my facebook location status once I got there saying I’d arrived in Cali, the first city I visited in Colombia. At first I […]

5 Things You Should Know If You’re Coming To Ecuador

There were many things that I both loved about Ecuador as well as many things that I wholeheartedly disliked about the country. For such a relatively small geographical space on this planet it is certainly a country of great variety in terms of both its landscapes and the local people that you will meet along the way. I thought it would […]

That time I trekked for 3 days solo in the Amazon Jungle with just a tribesman as my guide and his machete!

So you know, just the usual. Trekking for 3 days in the Amazon Jungle with no-one except my Amazonian guide (a local tribesman) who just happened to be carrying a large machete with him throughout the entirety of our trek. Ok, so obviously I’m joking about the whole ‘just the usual’ part, but I have […]

The Cheapest Way to Get to Machu Picchu

I’m not going to lie, Machu Picchu is cool but it’s also really expensive (and I’m not just talking by Peruvian standards.) Even for those with an exchange rate coming from the Euro or British Pound, you will still find this place extortionate to get to. However, there’s a reason why Machu Picchu is so expensive and that’s because this […]

First Impressions of Brasov (Romania)

I recently visited the city of Brasov in Romania. It was by far one of the highlights of my current Eastern European trip, and I’m glad I went out of my way on this itinerary to visit the place. These were my first impressions; Simply beautiful Brasov is beautiful. I genuinely felt like I could walk […]

First Impressions of Novi Sad (Serbia)

During my first visit to Serbia way back in 2011 I visited Belgrade on a whistle stop tour from West to Eastern Europe. Knowing that I would pass through Serbia again on my latest European venture, I knew immediately that I wanted to venture outside of the capital this time. I only had 2 days spare to […]

Top 5 things to do (if it’s your first time) in Budapest

Budapest is fast becoming one of my favourite cities in Europe, especially Central Europe. It’s cheap, beautiful, there’s lots to do, and it has an interesting historical past. It’s position in the continent also makes it easy for exploring other parts of Europe quite easily whilst hopping to/from the city. So if it’s your first […]

How to get from Prague Airport to the city centre for £1

I recently had a 1 night stop over in Prague on my way to Vienna and was reminded just how cheap the city is for public transport. In total it cost me £1.05 at the current exchange rate to get (legally and legitimately) from Prague Airport to PLUS Hostel Prague (my accommodation for the night) in the city centre. […]
