BARCELONA at night

There’s nowhere quite like Barcelona.  The Spanish city is actually the heart of Catalonia, and it’s also renowned for its incredible architecture (largely made by Gaudi) and fun atmosphere.  There are so many things to do in Barcelona – but what if you only have one day? If you’re here on a layover, or just […]

The capital of Scotland, Edinburgh has global fame as a must-see destination in the UK. Known for its historic streets, fairly moody but atmospheric weather and Harry Potter connections, this city is brooding and majestic.  One day in Edinburgh is just about enough time to see the highlights (although more is always better if possible!).  […]

Unusual things to do in Tenerife: volcanoes and bananas!

As my plane slowly started landing at Tenerife South Airport, I took in vistas of a volcanic island fringed by black sand beaches, with the crashing Atlantic waves kissing the shore on every side.

How to get from Tirana to Saranda in 2022 (bus routes + times!)

Buses in Albania have historically been a bit of a head-scratcher. Rich, my partner, visited back in 2015, and when we made our way over to the Balkan country from Bari in Italy, he told me plenty of stories of no transport timetables, random bus stops and times spent standing on the side of the […]

How to take the Bari to Durres ferry: Italy to Albania by sea

If you’re an overland traveller exploring Europe, the Italy to Albania ferry is almost a rite of passage. It takes you from the historic, beachy Italian region of Puglia to the heart of the Balkans, within striking distance of Albania’s capital, Tirana.

Things to do in Katherine, Northern Territory & Full Guide

Small towns (and the occasional city) are dotted along the […]
