If you've ever wondered what Bora Bora was like in the 60s before all of the tourists turned up, then look no further than Maupiti!

This beautiful island in the South Pacific was one of my highlights from my time in French Polynesia.
Today, I’m excited to introduce you to Maupiti: one of my favourite discoveries from my South Pacific trip! A fifty-minute flight from Tahiti brought me there, to paradise. It was my first taste of French Polynesia outside of the bustling capital and I couldn’t have chosen a more different island to visit ...

Introducing the beautiful Cook Islands!
Six years ago, I sat on my bed and began researching round-the-world tickets. I grabbed a pen and notepad and pulled up a map of the world, then began to scribble down the destinations I wanted to visit. After days of research, the country I had placed right at the top of ...

Last month, I visited the UK, Spain, Thailand, and Cambodia! Find out what I got up to and how much it all cost me :-)
What an amazing, wonderful, perfect month! And can I just say how great it feels to open a monthly summary with that line? Things are going so well right now! I kicked off the month at home in the UK, doing much the same as the previous month: spending time with family and ...

I'm back! Excited to share a big post today about the changes I've been making to get my life back on track.
Hi. Remember me? It’s been a while. In my last post, I hinted about the dissatisfaction I’ve been battling with over the last couple of years and it was getting those feelings down on a, um, screen that finally convinced me to make the changes I’ve been putting off for ...

Starting a travel blog is the best decision I've ever made. It's funded my five years of full-time travel, got me a book deal, and changed my life. Here's how you can do the same.

French Polynesia is PARADISE!
French Polynesia is paradise. I mean, just look at this: That’s Bora Bora and it was even more spectacular than I’d dreamed it would be. But you know what? It was actually the islands outside of Bora Bora that captured my heart and that was a big surprise. I visited five of them over ...

This post has taken off! 75,000 visits in 48 hours. 
After I shared my year-end review of my 2015 travels, casually dropping my total expenditure into my rundown of statistics, a whole ton of you dropped me an email to ask for more details. Fortunately, I track every single cent that I spend while I’m on the road, so putting together a detailed breakdown of ...

My most expensive month yet! 
Month 50 was all about hitting pause and figuring out what I want to do with my life. Sounds deep, huh? I guess it kind of was. I had originally planned to spend a week at home before jetting off again, but cancelled my plans at the last minute to ...
