The beauty of the rugged, crisp terrain is matched only by the warmth of Albertan locals. Whether you're into outdoor activities, wildlife, good food or luxing out, the region is sure to satisfy.
More and more people have recently started asking me: "Why are you a fan of Africa?". Deep down, I believe that you can't be a fan of a continent with six distinct climatic zones and over 1500 spoken languages and cultures, the same way you are a fan of Michelle Obama or Bruno Mars.
The barracuda was right there; lurking. It was enormous, with great black marks like portholes down its side and teeth that made me shiver. It was side on when I first saw it and about 20 metres away but it flipped in less than a second to face-on and came towards me so fast it was like a blur.
When we moved into our flat two years ago, my partner and I opened up our spare bedroom to the Airbnb system. What started as a way to bring in some extra money to smarten up our house, resulted in a fascination with meeting new people and learning about the places they call home.
There's very few emails I dislike receiving. I love my job! However there's also only a few emails that I get extremely excited about. One of those such occasions was being invited to visit Mallorca at the end of last year.
"He's behind you" and no, it's not someone in a gorilla suit but the ultimate selfie! I was with a group, gorilla tracking in Uganda. Not as simple as it sounds but involving an extremely challenging three hour trek in the Ruhija district of Bwindi Impenetrable (lives up to its name) forest.
What may not be clear to those parents who flatly refuse to move is, if they do not act reasonably it may impact on their ability to use buses at all. Not all wheelchair users can travel by bus. If their wheelchair is too big or heavy they are barred from traveling.
I'm writing this on the way back from Bali. Back! Boo hoo. Worth noting, however, that I am on a totally connected flight. So technically I could actually upload this post from the air. Which would be very cool. But unlikely - I have around three movies on my watch-list before we land.
Once you've endured the painfully long queues for the Eiffel Tower, got your selfie with the Mona Lisa in the Louvre, and 'Instagrammed' the Arc de Tr...
We all lead busy lives and in doing so, we sometimes make simple mistakes in our daily transactions, which can cost us in time and money. When it comes to travel, holiday makers commit some simple errors which not only affects their pockets but can have an effect on their planned getaway.
Like many people in cinemas around the world, this week I fell utterly in love with La La Land. For me, the film had extra sparkle because I went to Los Angeles last summer and got to reminisce about an absolutely wonderful trip.
Let us return to Spain's 2010 tourism promo-video again, since it reveals much about the ways in which Spain wishes to present its rebranded image as well as ways in which the world would perceive itself. While previously, Spain's branding efforts highlight how "Spain is different", the new marketing endeavours strive to underscore needs and desires of individuals who are attracted to the Spanish way of life.
It seems that this could be about to change; an exemplary programme of UK wildlife conservation holidays, designed by Wild Days to support the work of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB, the National Trust and the RSPB, proves that there is a sustainable model for successful ecotourism in the UK.
In new research results from software company Esri, it has been scientifically proven that Edinburgh trumps every other UK city in greenspace measurement with the city sitting at 49%, making up almost half of the city.
This southern coast of Crete is far more rugged than the north. In some places the mountains come so close to the Libyan Sea that there's no room for a road inbetween, and a few villages are only accessible by boat or footpath, or by one road in and out.
In August 2015, I came across a link to a JustGiving page on my Facebook newsfeed - an old school friend was trying to raise money for the family of a friend who had passed away while travelling in Australia...
