Complete Guide to Sri Lanka 2019| Where to Stay and where to go.

We couldn’t recommend the sights, sounds and flavours of Sri Lanka more. It is such a diverse country with cool, rainy hills in the centre, hot sunny beaches around the edges, a varied and vibrant capital city and even a scorching desert in the north (though we didn’t get there). Below is a complete guide to Sri Lanka 2019 with…

After years of thinking about it, and months of planning and booking for it, we are finally off. We quit our jobs, rented out our house and set off for our year long world adventure. Sitting on the plane with metal cutlery and then in a comfortable designer seat in Zurich, it was hard to imagine the experiences that lay…

Indeed Montenegro is a relatively new country, gaining independence from Serbia for the first time since World War I. Bordering Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo and Albania; it is located in the Balkans and looks across the Mediterranean…

December Blog 002: Booking the Trip

Flights As we all know, RyanAir is an airline that offers no-frills flights mainly around continental Europe and the UK and their slogan says “Low Fares Made Simple“, therefore we assumed booking flights on RyanAir to Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro would rightly fit into that mantra.

December Blog 001: Planning the trip

Having got married in June 2017, we wanted to enjoy our first married Christmas together away on Holiday. We looked at a number of different locations from Greece to the Philippines, Denver to Barbados and Florida to Costa Rica. We even booked flights to Manila and hastily canceled them, unsure of wanting to go all that way for 10 days.…

Montepulciano, Montalcino and going home Sitting on the plane writing this, we are sad to be going home. Holidays, no matter how long, always come to an end too quickly.  Montepulciano is quite a bit larger that some of the nearby medieval mountain towns and villages. It boasts relatively quiet streets and alleys. There are some very large hills and…
