    Chichen Itza & Playa del Carmen | Mexico

         Playa del Carmen is an interesting one to write about. I nearly wasn’t going to bother at all, since I wrote about it last time I was there, and there’s honestly not that much to see and do.…

    Merida | Mexico

    Arriving in Merida late the night before after the long drive from Palenque, and only venturing out the hotel for food, didn’t exactly let us see much of the town right away! But that theme did sort of continue throughout…

    Palenque | Mexico

    To put it bluntly, Palenque is a pain in the arse to get to. It’s a long drive from whichever other location you’re coming from. This post cover two days out of our trip, and at least half of each…

    Mexico City | Mexico

    So it’s been a bit quiet over here on the blog lately. In part, this was due to my work commitments, which I explained here a while back. But then I also went on holiday for three weeks, and took…

  • Hawaii short break - feature photo - palm tree silhouettes against a twilight ocean view just after sunset on Waikiki beach

    Hawaii Short Break

    I feel like I’ve seen images of Hawaii for as long as I can remember, thanks to the number of movies that feature it. Honestly, it wasn’t super high on my bucket list, as I associated it with over-tourism and…

    4 Days in Yosemite National Park | USA

    Towering mountains of stone, tumbling waterfalls dancing with rainbows, endless crystal lakes and giant, ancient sequoia trees. Yosemite might just be a little slice of paradise! One of the earliest National Parks in the USA, thanks in part to Scotsman…
