Dolphin watching has grown to be one of the most successful types of tourism in the world, offering economic returns as well as educational, researc...
Madulkelle Tea and Eco Lodge sits perched high in the Knuckles mountain range. I came across this gem of a place on a travel blog when researching my trip, and immediately knew I had to write this into my itinerary. To say this place is heaven on earth would be an understatement - I only wish I'd stayed longer.
Bavaria is surely home to some of the most awe-inspiring scenery that Europe has to offer, complete with resplendent castles; not to mention the smiling locals and the clean, crisp mountain air.
We've become a generation of home bods, we sit in our homes, flick through 900 channels and end up playing on our phones looking through Facebook, Instagram or playing words with friends, and god knows what other apps.

Located in what scientists call 'the coral triangle', Indonesia is surrounded by some of the planet's richest marine life. It is estimated 51,090sqkm of the country's surrounding water is made up of coral reef, an area home to everything from sharks and rays to Pygmy seahorses.

Not being in any particular rush to reach Rome, a few clicks of investigating suggested Orvieto as a wonderful day trip. Orvieto was a 'why not?' destination. Travelling with three young children, I thought, "Why not stay overnight? What some recommend as a day trip, might be worth a little extra time when touristing with three under-sixes."
