Why I Love The Caribbean

Why I Love The Caribbean

There is no question that the Caribbean is a wonderful place. I absolutely love the beaches, great weather and the lifestyle there. To me it is a pretty unique travel destination that you can’t find anywhere else on earth. I especially enjoy luxury Caribbean vacations and I wanted to talk to you a little bit more about the things that I find special about taking a holiday there.

The culture

One thing to notice about being in the Caribbean is without a doubt the culture, there is this laid back attitude that you simply cannot find anywhere else on the world. It is also very difficult to describe, but once you see it you will notice it instantly. The best way I can describe it is that the people are simply open, relaxed and much more carefree than any of other place (holiday or not) that I have ever been to. I think this must come from the slower paced and easier lifestyle in the sun.

Top tips for cruising with your mate

Cruises are fun whether you’re in a group or travelling solo. But, like with all holidays, if you’re travelling with a mate, it’s best to be well prepared.

Pick wisely

Some people are excellent friends, but terrible travel partners. Visualise your idea of a good time. Now, imagine that idea being played out by nearly everyone on your cruise, except you. Travelling with people who have conflicting ideas of “fun” can be testing and, most likely, you’ll leave the ship with a strained relationship and stressful memories.

The search for fun partners around the world

The search for fun partners around the world

Whenever anyone travels around the world they hope to experience it with some fun people or meet someone fun along the way. Of course solo travel has it benefits; you meet locals, go out of your way to speak to people and grow in self confidence.

One thing that I have learnt along the way is that meeting fun people from different cultures, countries and backgrounds is simply an amazing experience. The good news is that you don’t always have to do this whilst you are travelling! You can now meet new fun people around the world from the comfort of your own home.

Head to Mexico this summer

Head to Mexico this summer

Mexico has to be one of the best places to take a holiday, it has absolutely everything you need to have the perfect summer break. I really did love my time in Mexico because everything was just great, I couldn’t find fault anything at all. Well, maybe it was a little too hot at midday, but is that really a complaint? With the weather the way it is back in the UK right now and a new place flooded every time we turn on the news I don’t think any of us would complain about the weather being too hot! I was lucky enough to book my Mexico holidays with Direct Holidays, they were able to give me some great advice about what I should see and do. They were also extremely accommodating when it came to finding the best possible price for me, I paid such a low amount for my holiday I almost felt bad, almost!

The best breakfasts from around the globe

The best breakfasts from around the globe

We have probably all heard the famous saying that teaches us that we should eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. In this day and age it can sometimes be a little difficult to follow the above saying, we are all so busy rushing to get to work or maybe to get the kids to school. On my travels I have found that there are many cultures that take time for breakfast and enjoy it. Breakfast should, ideally, be a leisurely affair where you can sit with your family or friends before you go out to work for the day. Here are some of the best breakfasts that I have found around the world, inspired by the ‘Breakfast Club’:

Dalmatia’s Historical Attractions

Dalmatia’s Historical Attractions

Dalmatia, a historic region of Croatia, is today peopled by three distinct groups. The ‘Fetivi’ occupy the urban coastal cities, the old towns and historic attractions clear descendants of a heavy Italian and classical Roman heritage, while the further inland you venture the more you encounter the influence of the Turkish Ottoman Empire and its descendants, the Vlaji. The largest city in Dalmatia, the city of Split, stands testament to the influence of the Roman empire, built as it was around the Palace of the Emperor Diocletian, and historical hubs such as the city of Dubrovnic offer a wealth of cultural intrigue.

Three Things That Every Backpacker Needs

Three Things That Every Backpacker Needs

Whether you’re inter-railing through Europe or travelling around Asia, backpacking will provide you with an experience to be remembered. Backpacking has become increasingly popular as a means of travel, this is a result of  more and more people now wanting to get to see the world through the eye of a backpacker.

Tapeats Hiker

The backpacking lifestyle is one to be admired as it is not as luxurious and flamboyant in comparison to that of a regular two week sun-holiday. Some say the lifestyle is hard and most agree that it’s not for everyone. But it is one that needs to be tried and tested at some point in life.
