11 Things To Do in Budapest (For the professional light-hearted but enthusiastic tourist)

The first time I went to Budapest was around Christmas, when the ground was frozen solid and the majority of the city was shrouded in icy mist. It was in fact so freezing cold, and I was so terrified of slipping on the sheets of ice covering the pavements, that I barely saw the city [...]

The Strangest Welcome to Costa Rica: Puerto Limón

Puerto Limón is atmospherically a strange kind of a place. The first time our ship docked there, the sky was grey and heavy with rain clouds that weren't quite ready to burst but had surely been on the brink of eruption for hours, and despite the greyness of the sky, the air was sticky and [...]

A Surprise Stay at The Annabelle Hotel, Cyprus

The five star Annabelle Hotel is one amazing place. It's also, let me be completely honest with you here- definitely not my normal kind of location for an overnight stay away from home. I'm generally more of an 'AirBnB/hostel/I recently stayed at the Yotel Gatwick Airport because it's basically inside the terminal and looks like [...]
