20 Is Plenty

Hey friends! Please excuse my absence over the last few days BUT I’ve been completely snowed under with celebrating my 20th Birthday! I have had the most wonderful time. So on the 4th, my birthday eve, I had the pleasure of attending The Royal Ballet’s performance of Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland in The Royal Opera House. It was a…

Meet ‘The Bucket List’

Hey friends! So this morning I woke up wide awake at 6.30am but my body clock is still on Peruvian time which is 6 hours behind, meaning it was only 12.30am for me. So I thought I’d just shut my eyes for another hour or so and then BOOM when I re-opened them it had…

Salkantay To Machu Picchu

Hey friends! AT LAST. I have returned to the land of hot showers, mattresses, wifi and people who don’t smell like they’ve been trekking for 5 days. Truth be told it’s bittersweet re-entering civilisation, I’m certainly going to miss being woken up every morning by a jolly Peruvian man handing me a steaming cup of…

Pre-Salkantay

Good evening pals !! It’s the day before the big trek and we’re all super excited to see what the next five days have in store for us. Everyone we’ve spoken to about the trek has wished us luck in a ‘you’ll need it’ kinda way- so we’re expecting it to be quite strenuous, but…

Rio Recap

Hello friends! So it’s day 4 in Rio and so far its been the perfect combination of lively and chill. My first full day was spent exactly how I had planned- soaking up the sun on the famous Ipanema beach and sipping homemade caipirinha’s, I am super fortunate in that I tan just by THINKING…

The Mind Of A Traveller

Oi Gente!! (Hello friends, in Portuguese) I HAVE MADE IT. After a super rocky flight, rocky in two aspects- one because the flight was extremely bumpy and despite being a frequent flyer I still had white knuckles after gripping my the arms of my seat, major Mrs. Iglesias moment from Bridesmaids! (minus the arrest). And…
