What better way to end our whirlwind month around South East Asia than to check into Navutu Dreams:  a  resort in Siem Reap, Cambodia  specialising  in the wellness, health and rebalancing of their guests. We spent 4 wonderful nights here, attending yoga classes, learning about crystal healing, relaxing by the pool(s)… i’ve never felt so rejuvenated. THE ROOM We stayed in one of Navutu’s Grand Tour rooms,   which just happened to be adjacent to the pool and restaurant area.  Yess!  The room was extremely spacious, offering 3 seating areas, a

Bangkok is straight up CRAZY. From the fearless taxi and tuk tuk drivers driving wherever they please, to the carefree travellers partying along Khao San Road, the colours, the lights, the hustle… everything is always GO GO GO.  There’s a reason the Hangover 2 was based in Bangkok – prepare yourself for absolute CHAOS! Like any city, you can choose to experience it in three ways: in luxury, in comfort, or on a budget. UNLIKE other cities, however, Bangkok is surprisingly cheap to experience, and travellers on a budget can

  One of the greatest things about living in New Zealand is the fact that we don’t have to travel far at all to experience some of the world’s most scenic destinations! We are so lucky to be able to live in such a small, beautiful and diverse country, where it is extremely easy and inexpensive to experience the beauty of New Zealand. The cute little French town of Akaroa, an hour and half’s drive from Christchurch in the South Island, is the prime example of this: it’s basically in

      In a flashback to December 2013, the planning for my summer European tour was in full swing. The top item on my bucket list? To hit up one of the legendary summer music festivals. My German friend Josie, a hard-partying and festival-going pro, promised to find us something. One afternoon at work I got a text: I’ve found us a festival! It’s called SonneMondSterne. She wrote. The early bird tickets are really cheap, but they finish today. I can get some for us! It was an invitation

Hi guys! I’m Beth, and I’m super excited to start blogging alongside Hayley to chronicle my travel adventures! Travel and writing are two of my biggest loves in life, so I jumped at the chance to both relive past experiences and make sure I take up every opportunity for adventure that comes my way. My mantra has always been that even the most embarrassing experiences make for a great story later (some of which I have no doubt will end up on this site!) My decision in 2014 to take

A traveller’s paradise, Queenstown is an absolute favourite destination of mine (and many others I’m sure) and also happens to be one of the best cities to visit in New Zealand. Queenstown is never short of things to do: in fact, it is so adventure packed that I had to split this article into two parts! This is the first article of the “Queenstown series“, which will cover everything you need to do when you visit Queenstown: both in the summer and winter months! For now, here’s what you should

Located in Fernhill, a short 5 minute drive from the centre of town, the Mercure Queenstown Resort   offers the utmost in privacy and luxury, nestled in the hills above Lake Wakatipu. When the lovely team at the Mercure invited me to stay while I was recently in Queenstown researching my latest blog post, I happily obliged – and what a stay it was. THE VIEW By far my favourite aspect of my stay at the Mercure Queenstown: The incredible uninterrupted view of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range. Can

Ahhh, Budapest. George Ezra was right: It definitely is a little treasure chest. Budapest was my first taste of eastern Europe, and surprise surprise – I want to explore more of it! The city has something for everyone: history, culture, unique experiences, great parties… perfect for twenty-somethings! I was very surprised at the cost of living in Budapest – everything seemed to be at least 50% cheaper than most western European cities I have visited (Don’t forget the local currency is in HUF not EUR!) This is great when factoring

Malta: The tiniest, littlest country in the entire world! (Okay, there’s smaller but still. It’s small). If you’ve never heard of Malta before, don’t worry, you aren’t geographically challenged, for I had not heard of it either until last year. We visited Malta last year with no expectations and very little research, we just wanted a girl’s weekend away. Malta’s charm had me head over heels as soon as I walked off the plane, and I would visit this lil country over and over again. Here’s a quick guide if

Writing about last’s week’s article: TIYT guide to Ibiza (click here to read if you haven’t read it already) made me feel nostalgic for the incredible Spanish island of Mallorca/Majorca (still haven’t figured out the official way to spell it.. someone tell me pls!) Mallorca is the largest island within in the Balearic Islands (which also include Ibiza and Formentera) off the Eastern coast of Spain. It is the perfect destination for a summer getaway, and I’m really wishing I could be there right now, especially because as I write
