Exploring the ancient Roman Baths, Bath

Don’t you always find that it’s places fairly close to home that you don’t tend to visit? Well it seems to happen to me quite often. For example, I had never ever been to Bath before even though it’s only about about two and half hours by car from London (one and a half hours on the train). I was pretty excited to have the opportunity to explore the ancient Roman Baths in Bath, England by torchlight....

Chilled Menorca boat trip #MustSeeMenorca

A quick chilled Menorca boat trip from our trip/conference (#mustseemenorca) out in Menorca, Spain in May.

Best beaches in Menorca (without a car)

It’s no secret that I love Menorca. It’s such a pleasant, relaxed and undeveloped island in the Mediterranean Sea. There’s so much to see and do as well as plenty of adventurous activities too, but if you’re looking for the best beaches in Menorca to relax and chilled out, then you’re in luck! The island is blessed with beautiful sandy beaches, All just a two hour flight away from the UK....

7 things to do in Riga in winter

On the east side of the Daugava River, the old Riga is a UNESCO world heritage site and Riga’s historical centre, famed for its old churches and cathedrals. It’s easy for people visiting Riga to get stuck in the old town, but there’s so much more to Riga. Do spend plenty of time admiring the structurally beautiful Riga Cathedral and St. Peter’s Church, the cobbled Town Hall Square, but remember that the old town is only about 5% of Riga itself....

Staro Rīga Festival of Light, Latvia

I was in Riga for Staro Rīga Festival of Light and Independence Day. It's a great time to visit the Latvian capital as they celebrate independence and light up the city with stunning light installations around the city. You'll find grand old buildings drenched in light and smaller interactive light experiences dotted in and around the parks. Riga is lit up in colours throughout the festival. Independence Day sees locals pay their respects for those lives lost during the war of...

Horse riding In Menorca

Standing in a field surrounded by long inquisitive faces nibbling at my t-shirt isn’t quite what I was expecting from horse riding in Menorca. We trotted into what looked like a scene from Jurassic Park, an expansion plain lined with palm trees and surounded by huge imposing cliffs. We stopped staring out into the distance admiring the view. As I steadied myself from fumbling around for my camera in my back pack, my guide, Alex unexpectedly whistles. Suddenly, out from behind bushes and trees...
