I can't be the only parent out there that thinks hotels 'Family Rooms' are more like 'Torture Parents Rooms'. After several overnight stays confined to the one room with the small people, I have decided that no, there is no such thing as a family friendly hotel.
Time does fly when we are travelling around the world! We are about to publish our 2 years travelling round up. So let's review what happened in our first year of travels. Moments, curiosities and how much we spent in 1 year travelling [the question everybody ask us].
The problem for me wasn't the fact the site is inaccessible - there is almost always a way to overcome inaccessibility. The problem was that I had no way of knowing what to expect from the point of view of a disabled person, and therefore no way to prepare.
The Galapagos Islands are unlike any other in the world; made up of a group of isolated volcanic islands, this is a place that hasn't been tainted by tourism. A dream destination to say the least. But with extortionate travel prices, the Galapagos Islands feels like an unfeasible reality for many.
Following a few months of planning, the guys invited Kasia and I, Kathanna from Disabled Access Holidays, and Annie from Enable Holidays for a 3 day visit. Bask For All also collaborated with Julian from Barcelona Zero Limits. And what a great itinerary it was too!
Hacienda Temozon could be tagged as the 'Grand Daddy' of the luxury haciendas. At the turn of the 20th century it was considered as one of the most im...
Compared to England, the cost of eating out is cheaper, although glasses of wine tends to be cheaper from soft drinks. Great if you love wine. Here are my top 5 things to do in Milan.
New Orleans is a city that conjures up so many images but as soon as you arrive you realise it's one of the most vibrant and unique cities in America. Full on contradictions, excitement and friendly locals who are so proud to call this city home, and it's easy to see why.
New Orleans has something for everyone, if you want to party head to Bourbon Street and get wild after drinking a hurricane or two. Walking through the French Quarter is like sticking your iPod on shuffle, with music and culture oozing out of every building and on every street corner; this city has Jazz in it's soul.
Crossing a metal barrier into an odd small cage for women while men glare over the divide felt like I and the other women were communicating 'I feel vulnerable around men', emphasising the power of the men outside the zone.
When visiting a foreign city it can be all too easy to stick to what you know and Barcelona is no exception. While some people look forward to trying new dishes, many others like to stick to what they already know.
Built in the 1920s, the charming chateau-esque building set in 850 acres of stunning Perthshire countryside is a quintessential Scottish escape. Most famous for its championship golf course, the vast estate also boasts super-luxe suites, a posh shopping arcade, an equestrian and shooting school, a falconry centre, Michelin starred restaurant and of course a state of the art spa.
You might be in the midst of making travel arrangements for the upcoming summer months so I'm sharing the types of things that I enjoy traveling onboard with.
Every destination in the world is a living, breathing place that has so much more to offer than the tourist trails, so make the most of your trip by seeking out alternative ways to be guided through it!
While I was there, I noticed some pretty handy tricks to enjoy one of the most beautiful cities without forking out more than a tenner for a beer - if you're savvy about it. So if you do want to experience the gorgeous city on water, eat all the Italian food (and if you're a fan of prosecco), you can totally enjoy a budget-friendly break there too.
Eight months after moving to Denmark, I'm now straddling that crepuscule between things being novel and others becoming the norm, so in this lucid moment I wanted to jot down a few observations, about my experience of Denmark and, more importantly, about the people who hail from it - an invitees examination, if you will.
