10 Ways to Make Your Home Feel Like a Luxury Hotel

We love discovering beautiful destinations, cultures, cuisines, sights, nature and history. And while we’re at it, we also love discovering beautiful hotels. There’s something wonderfully relaxing, luxurious and indulgent about hotels, isn’t there? While we love travelling, we also love staying put, as we explained when we said Don’t Quit Your Job, And Travel.

First Timers Guide to Safaris in India – The 12 things you should know

The jungles of Madhya Pradesh were, for me, love on the very first safari. As I write this, I’m keeping my ears tuned for the sound of birds that I have begun to identify, I’m absent- mindedly brushing imaginary insects off my arms, I’ve got a yearning for the faint smells of musk enveloped by lush green vegetation and even the bumpy bone rattling drive through the jungles. But that’s

How to Avoid Museum Fatigue in Europe

Museum fatigue is that feeling of just walking through a museum, looking but not really seeing, as row after row of sculpture or painting just blurs and everything seems the same.

And as travel bloggers, we’re all for buying experiences that enrich our lives. We’re constantly singing praises of how a life of travel is such a meaningful existence.

Why Travelling is Like Falling in Love

It’s that time of year, when our newsfeeds are flooded with red roses, pink hearts, pairs of champagne flutes and loads of other Valentines Day iconography ranging from the obscene to the tacky. For us however, it’s just another day. No it’s not because we’re the too-cool-for-school kids that shun romance. No it’s not because we’ve been travelling as a married couple. But simply because we’re both in love (and

What do travel bloggers do on holiday?

As travel bloggers holidaying is the last thing we do when we travel. You may see our Facebook and Instagram timeline flooded with idyllic images of sunsets and beaches, But that doesn’t mean we were laying back, umbrella drinks in hand.

Top 5 Places to Revisit

We didn’t think we’d ever do a post on the Top 5 Places to Revisit, but here we are. We’ve always treated every single trip of ours like it’s the last time we’ll ever go there (so that it feels like the trip of a lifetime, every single time). But there are some places we left little pieces of our hearts, and we know we aren’t done with those places
