It was an uncomfortably hot Thursday lunchtime in July and we had a few moments before returning to work. Bored and restless, we impulsively set up an Instagram account, decided on the catchy (yet on reflection, grammatically incorrect) name 'Twins That Travel', loaded up a photograph and headed back to the office.

The first thing I notice is the difference in ski apparel. Last time I skied, ski pants were tight and had stirrups. Ski jackets were short and fitted, sometimes with clear pockets to display lift tickets. Since my old ski pants and jacket still fit, I literally dusted them off and donned them, believing I was back in the game.

Grown-Up Backpacking In Breathtaking Sri Lanka Will Cure Your Adult Life Freakouts

Sri Lanka is completely unlike any other Asian country I've ever been to - the people, the food, the sights and the experiences are all truly incredible. If you're looking for a party and a fried English breakfast, this place is not for you: it's been largely untouched - and not yet ruined - by tourism, meaning there's a distinct lack of the seedy underside of mass visitation that's plaguing so many Asian countries these days. Long may it continue.

Hi! ​My name is Jojo, I'm a writer and editor, I've just turned 30 and I'm moving to Australia in March 2016. No, I'm not doing it the adult way, I don't have a work visa - Lord, no - I'm grasping my last chance to spend one (hopefully two) years 'bumming around' (technical term) and becoming reacquainted with a long lost friend of mine: Relaxation. Yes, that's right, I have a working holiday visa.

While a destination wedding isn't just about exotic beaches (I've heard of other brides-to-be getting married in Tuscan villages, European cities and the bright lights of New York), I'll be living out my wedding dream on one of Jamaica's quietest bits of sand (fingers crossed for the quiet bit).

My Heart Belongs to Egypt

I started out feeling scared - of the foreboding mountainous landscape and the dark drive from the airport through it; of the inevitable street hassle one gets as a European walking past Egyptian shops. On my first trip I even had a panic attack because a guy offered me tea in the back of the shop and I suddenly had visions of him bundling me off in to the desert.

The minute I stepped into the national park my imagination ran away with me. I was away with the fairies (so to speak) for the rest of the day, and with good reason! With it's other-worldly water colours and incredible greenery Plitvice forced me to revert to my childhood ways of ACTUALLY believing in something that I couldn't see. What a novelty!

If you like shopping you will love the Souks in the old town. Row upon row of market stalls with Moroccan goods from jewellery to teapots to hand made carpets to tempt you. Even if you don't have money to spend the Souks are wonderful just to wander through and see the sights, although the sellers might coax you in, after all "looking is free".
