Is swimming with turtles on your bucket list? It was on mine, and I got to do it in the Gili Islands, Lombok Indonesia.
No trip to Berlin, Germany, would be complete without some sort of activity that acknowledges the country’ history between 1918 and 1990. During a casual stroll through the city you will come across various museums and monuments, and a paved brick line that criss-crosses the city to outline where the Berlin Wall once stood. And as a solo traveler it is all well and good to stroll around, stopping in areas that catch your interest, but I honestly cannot more highly recommend signing up for a Third Reich Walking Tour if you get the chance.
I realise that cities, by nature, are large and it can take you days to explore them, but there was just something about Prague that made its way into my heart and stayed there. I only had just over 24 hours to explore this city which is one of the down sides to being on a group tour, but I definitely made sure to make the most of it.
Are you considering travelling overseas but are unsure if you should go solo or join a group trip? Here I’ve documented the pros and cons of group trips for travel.
Budapest: a city of gorgeous architecture, endless monuments and those thermal baths. It’s not an exaggeration to say that I left a piece of my heart in the city, and I am so incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to spend 48 glorious hours in the city exploring. While I think you could easily spend a full week in Budapest since there are so many hidden gems, we only had a limited amount of time so we had to make the most of it, and while there were a few things that we didn’t get to, I’m pretty happy with what I was able to achieve in such a short amount of time.
So, you’re coming to Central Australia to explore the Red Centre. You know that you are definitely going to see Uluru, but you’re not sure about what else there is to do. That’s okay, because I’ve grown up in Alice Springs and I can point you towards some of the best things to do in this region.
