1. Staying at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel in a Grand Park View Room

    I had always wanted to stay at the beautiful Tokyo Disneyland Hotel since I first saw it being built and always wondered what it would be like to stay there.  Fast forward to this year when we visited Tokyo Disney Resort for four nights for my birthday and decided to not only book the Hotel MiraCosta for two nights but also the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel for the rest of our stay.

  2. 10 Common Sense Travel Tips

    When travelling and no matter where you are in the world, it is possible to make your experience as stress free as possible just by using a little common sense. It sounds simple enough but over the years, I have seen so many people simply forget about the simplest little things as soon as their holiday (or even the planning for it) begins. Everyone wants a trip to remember for all the best reasons and not for the bad ones so use your brain and try not to make any of these silly mistakes. (more…)

  3. Staying at the Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta in a Porto Paradiso Harbor View Room

    It had been a dream of mine to stay at the beautiful Hotel MiraCosta at Tokyo DisneySea since the very first time I visited the park back in 2008. Who would not want to stay at a hotel that is located entirely inside the best Disney park in the world? When we visited Japan last month and spent four days at Tokyo Disney Resort, we decided to book a Harbor View room at the Hotel MiraCosta for two nights of our stay. Yes it was expensive and more than I’ve ever paid for a hotel room in my life, but if you cannot treat yourself for your birthday, when can you? (more…)

  4. How to Walk up to The Peak in Hong Kong

    The view of Hong Kong from Victoria Peak is one of the most iconic city views in the world and is usually at the top of every to-do list when visiting Hong Kong. The easiest, quickest and most popular way to get to the Peak is to take the famous Peak Tram which takes seven minutes to get to the top however there can often be long lines which during busy times of the year and on clear days can sometimes be several hours long.

  5. Visiting Humayun’s Tomb – Delhi, India

    I feel embarrassed to say this but in over ten years of travelling to Delhi for work, I had never actually seen anything of Delhi itself apart from a hotel room or the view of the busy streets in the evenings from a Tuk Tuk racing to a restaurant for dinner. Earlier this year though, I finally fought through the tiredness straight after landing into India and went to explore Humayun’s Tomb for the afternoon. (more…)

  6. Hong Kong Disneyland Planning Guide

    Hong Kong is one of my most visited cities in the world so it would make sense that Hong Kong Disneyland is my most visited Disney park in the world. It really is my happy place and I try to visit every time I’m in Hong Kong (which is usually once a month) even if it’s just for a few hours.

    I recently wrote a planning guide for visiting Shanghai Disneyland so it is only right that I do the same for the amazing Hong Kong Disneyland that I have visited more times than I can honestly remember. I really hope that it will help anyone who is planning a trip to Hong Kong. (more…)

  7. How to Drive from Dubrovnik in Croatia to Kotor in Montenegro

    When we visited the amazing city of Dubrovnik for five days in March this year, we also made plans on one of our days to take a road trip to the town of Kotor in Montenegro which is located 57 miles (92km) from Dubrovnik making it a very easy drive. As Kotor is only a short distance away, it is a very popular day trip destination and even though there are buses and coach trips available, neither of these will give you the freedom to stop whenever you want to enjoy and take in the amazing scenery during the journey.

  8. Visiting the Tabasco Factory – Avery Island, Louisiana

    One of the places I was most looking forward to on our road trip from Atlanta to Galveston last November was the Tabasco Factory which is located on Avery Island in Louisiana. I love Tabasco and usually have several bottles of the holy grail of hot sauces in the kitchen cupboard at home – the Garlic Pepper one being my favourite. When we were planning our road trip, we decided to stay in Lafayette the evening before our visit as it was not only close to the I-10 but also only a short forty minute drive to Avery Island itself.
