All over the place (in Goa)

Whether it was ignorance or naivety, I didn’t know much about Goa before travelling there. My time was split between the north and south of the region, which were for all extensive purposes like chalk and cheese. After a twenty-hour train journey (an experience in itself) I arrived in Calangute, an area known for its beach and lively atmosphere.

Weekend in Barcelona on a budget? Do it student-style, like we did.

#1 Don’t always trust weather apps You’re promised two very sunny days and spend one of them regretting not having brought a warm, hooded jacket with you.

Secret Malta: Valetta on the Rocks

The single most beautiful view of Valletta is either a 15-minute bus ride, 6-minute boat trip (or 40-minute swim if the pulizija don’t get you first) across from it on the mysterious island of Manoel Fort. I came here with a friend, ostensibly for a smoke but which instead ended up with us talking about how nice seawater smells.


Secret Malta: Down a hole – no rabbits involved

As sink holes go, this one is lovely, even during a Maltese winter.
