Discovering Malta, with no smartphone or guidebook
14th November 2023 by Budget Traveller
We stumble down the sulphur-yellow dirt track, no sign of Claire’s secret beach. In the past 15 minutes we have been honoured with just the odd lonesome goat for company and the swallows, dancing above our heads. I take a slurp of my water. It is past midday but already the April sun feels strong on our skin. We reach a dead end. Force of nature implores me to look at my phone for answers. According to Google Maps, the track or beach does not exist. We are in no-mans lands. I look up again,...

My favourite things to do in La Rochelle, the ‘White City’
11th April 2023 by Budget Traveller
Nestled on the southwestern coast of France, is the charming fishing town of La Rochelle. Characterised by a rich maritime history, La Rochelle’s roots are reflected in the way the medieval old town has developed around its old harbour or Vieux Port, the half timbered houses, the lofty 17th century arches covering the passageways. This was my 3rd visit to the city and the place grows on me with every visit. In this post, I’ll share with you some of the best things to do in La Rochelle....

In this post, I’ve shared the best things...
