Lookin’ back in time 🇪🇬 🌴 🌞🐪

Welcome to Egypt! or in Arabic, Marhabaan bikum fa misr! •••
Back in December I had the great pleasure of visiting Egypt with @topdecktravel. My childhood dream finally came true, and it didn’t disappoint!
•••
They say the Great Pyramid has between 2.6-3 million blocks, each weighing between 1-2.5 tonnes and it took 20 years to build. That means that if the working day is 10 hour then they would’ve had to have placed down a stone every 2 minutes!

For me, seeing the Pyramids was absolutely mesmerising. What have you seen that’s blown you away? Tell me below

Located a few minutes down the road on the north slope of the Fogo Volcano (previous IG pic) is Caldeira Velha, a scenic nature preserve featuring lush vegetation, a waterfall, and hot springs. I love this place because it’s not located near a town and the towering trees make you feel like you’re at one with nature.

Don’t go chasing waterfall they said...💦

For what started in South Africa and ended in London, 2017 has been an amazing year! I started learning Arabic, realised a childhood dream of going to Egypt, (stay tuned for photos!) and met my language heros at the Polyglot Conference in Iceland.

Starting ‘The Intrepid Guide’ has allowed me to connect and bond with people from all over the world creating friendships I would never have imagined. Thank you to those you regularly comment, like, and DM me. I love that this isn’t a one-way conversation. To those quiet observers, don’t be shy :) Send me a message and say hi!

I’ve already got a few trips planned for this year. Tell me, what are your big travel plans for 2018?

P.S. Pictured is Ribeira dos Caldeirões, included in my 5-day itinerary around São Miguel island. Plan your trip to the Azores with my complete guide here → bit.ly/sao-miguel-guide

Looking out into the big blue 💦
After spending a week exploring every corner of São Miguel island, I feel like I know the island intimately.

In Portuguese, the expression ‘muitos anos a virar frangos’ which literally translates to ‘many years turning chickens’ describes someone who has had a lot of experience. It’s with this in mind, that I created the perfect 5-day itinerary to São Miguel’s pristine volcanic landscape.

From thousands of years old bubbling geysers, flower-lined winding roads, hikes spiraling around dormant volcanoes, to natural thermal pools. This is my most comprehensive travel guide yet!

Copenhagen is special for so many reasons 🇩🇰👑🏰 It's one of the greenest cities in the world and is home to Tivoli Gardens, the inspiration for Walt Disney's gardens in Disneyland.

From thousands of years old bubbling geysers to flower-lined winding roads, hikes spiraling around dormant volcanoes, and natural thermal pools scattered throughout the island, São Miguel is a dream. Which is why I’ve prepared a comprehensive Azores travel guide!
