Travel Thursdays: Greece Part 1 – Athens

So my bestie Kim and I recently did a little trip through Greece (with a small stopover in Sorrento, Italy).  I personally like escaping at least a part of the cold winter months, so you’ll typically find me fleeing Cape Town around June/July/August.  For this trip we left Cape Town on Sat, 22 Jul & […]

Travel Thursdays: Mauritius – part 1: Where did I stay & how did I get there

Back in January of this year (yes yes, it’s taken me this bloody long to write about it), I did a sneaky little 7 night trip to Mauritius.  Why Mauritius?  Well I didn’t have a lot of days to play with, therefore didn’t want to spend too much time travelling.  I also really just […]

Travel Thursdays: Halong Bay, Vietnam

We’ve come to the last post in my Vietnam series and I must say, it’s been really cool to relive this awesome holiday again with you guys… I’m hoping it’s inspired some travelling of your own. 🙂

So the last thing we did in Vietnam was a Halong Bay tour.  Now there are endless tour […]

Travel Thursdays: Hanoi, Vietnam

Our last city in Vietnam was Hanoi.  Hanoi is Vietnam’s 2nd largest city as well as its capital and to me it was definitely the most exciting city by far…

We stayed in the Old Quater which is definitely where you want to be.  Our hotel was the May de Ville Old Quarter Hotel ( […]

Travel Thursdays: Hoi An, Vietnam

From Phu Quoc island we flew to Hoi An… Well actually we first had to fly back to Ho Chi Minh and then from there flew to Hoi An because there’s no direct flight.  So a bit of a mission, but not too unbearable as the first flight was only 1 hr and the […]

If you missed my first Vietnam post, click here… if not, read on! 🙂

So from Ho Chi Minh City we jumped on a 1 hour local flight to Phu Quoc island.  But before we move on – we flew with VietJet Air which is cheap (cost us around R650 pp for each internal flight), […]

Travel Thursdays: Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon), Vietnam

Towards the end of July, bestie Leigh and I embarked on a flirty 10 day trip through Vietnam.  We booked our flights through www.travelstart.co.za which offered the best options by far.   We flew with Emirates Airlines via Dubai arriving in Ho Chi Minh in the South of Vietnam and then on the way back […]

Travel Thursdays: AfrikaBurn 2016

OK, so AfrikaBurn doesn’t technically count as “travel” in the sense that it’s still local, but I think travelling deep into the Karoo qualifies it just this once. 😉

For those who are not familiar with AfrikaBurn it’s an annual event which takes place in the Tankwa Karoo where people from all walks of life […]
