Bali is called the ‘island of the gods’ and has some amazing places to stay. Here’s our top 10 places to stay in Bali.
Amsterdam is one of my favourite cities (and that’s not just because of its legalisation policies!), one reason is because they really encourage cycling as the main form of transport, and there are just as many cycle lanes as there are roads and pedestrian pavements. It makes it such an easier and more fun way to get around the city and see more of the sites. Check out our blog posts on things to do in Amsterdam.
Travelling around Iceland, there’s some amazing places to stay. We could only stay at a few during the time we were there and here are our top 5 places to stay in Iceland.
Iceland is the land of ice, fire and water. The country is situated on a plate tectonic ‘hot spot’ on the earth, resulting in a lot of geothermal activity. This mixture of geothermal activity, ice and fire, means that there are numerous hot springs and geysers all over the country.
If you’re planning a holiday to New Zealand, make sure you pack your camera. There’s a reason it’s labelled one of the most photogenic countries in the world. New Zealand’s stunning landscapes will blow you away.
Guatemala is a stunning country. The vibrant coloured clothes that the local people wear are so beautiful. The country is like a rawer and rougher version of the US – their public buses are old school buses from America, which they paint with amazing colours, some cover them in flower garlands and play really loud music! At every stop, street sellers get on and sell snacks and drinks. People can bring on almost anything they like to transport with them, from small children to chickens and dogs and even small pigs!
I went to the MahaDevi Ashram on Lake Atitlan to do their 200hr certificate in Hatha Yoga Teacher Training. It was a month long course with a 4 day silent meditation retreat in the middle of it. It was such a beautiful setting surrounded by jungle which was teaming with wildlife and a babbling river nearby.
While travelling across Cambodia, we stayed in various types of accommodation from hotels, to beach huts on stilts! Here we list our top 5 places to stay in Cambodia.
- How to get an extra hour in Cambodia – A top tip for any first timers who are landing in Siem Reap. Remember to sort your tourist visa out BEFORE you start queuing through customs. Don’t do what we did and waste your time by queuing for the same thing twice! I know us brits love a good que, but that was taking it too far; and turned out to be a common mistake we later saw many people make. When you get in the arrivals hall with the big buddha head, turn right and go to the visa desk before joining the que through customs.
