    'I'm tired does that count?' I joke with the man opposite me as for reasons why we should get on the plane first. Zoolander 2 - second film in and I cannot sleep! It was so strange setting off; the sunset and light filled the airplane with such a nice amber glow it was like a film! And then suddenly I looked out and it was pitch black. Up in the …

    Nightmare! Thanks a lot British Airways man for saying it was all authorised when it wasn't. Finally got it sorted but it was probably the most anxious I've ever been. Couldn't even get hold of my parents because I have no signal or wifi...Vodafone better sort it's life out!Flying over J'burg in our rickety old plane the city looked great! It did amuse me that pretty much everyone had a …

    How exciting my first blog entry! So I'm still in England at the moment (just checking this works how I think it works). With everything packed and ready all I have to do is wait...and wait...and PATIENTLY wait some more till this evening's flight. Just found out that my flight has been delayed...not the best news, but as long as I don't miss my connecting flight it's shoul all be fine. Just a bit …

    Croatia in general and particularly Dubrovnik, have become a must- see tourist destination for travelers. Dubrovnik, located in the extreme south of Croatia, is a rather stunningly intact walled-city. It's perched over-looking the Adriatic Sea coast. A hidden gem of the touring world for many years, this city has, over the past decade, shot to prominence to become one of the most desirable seaside holiday locations in the world. Dubrovnik’s …

    Going to the beach is one of Australia's favorite pastimes, a true nationwide celebration of the sand and the sea, two elements present here from time immemorial for everyone to enjoy.

    I´ve never kept a diary/journal/blog before, so we´ll see if I can keep this up! Getting to know La Paz I´m sure it´s cliché to say, but La Paz takes your breath away - both because of the altitude and the spectacular views in every direction.  Getting from the airport to my hostel via the Teleférico should have earned me a rest, but I headed straight out on a walking tour. The content …

    On a dreary, rainy day we arrive at the port of Irakleion and our first activity is visiting the Archeological Museum of Irakleion. The professor leading our trip is a Classics expert and his enthusiasm for the artifacts is infectuous- for me at least. I take WAY too many pictures (all of which I keep) of the artifacts because they fascinate me and this becomes a trend at every museum …

    We arrive at the Art Gallery Hotel in Athens around 9pm. A quaint and cozy 4 story complex, with an awesome marble spiral staircase and an old fashioned elevator. The fourth floor functioned as a lounge/dining area complete with a bar open at night and a terrace which offered a wonderful view of the Acropolis. Around 10:30pm (a normal dinner hour in Greece!) we head to a taverna down the …
