Caribbean getaway: spending a long week-end in Santa Marta & the Tayrona National Park

As it is currently pouring over Bogota, I thought now was as good a time as any to tell you what I was up to last week-end, which was extra long for me as Colombia also celebrates Columbus Day as Dia de la Raza y la Hispanidad, literally Race and Hispanicity Day. Controversies surrounding genocidal maniac Christopher Columbus aside, with that Monday off, and since I don’t have class on Tuesdays and my first class is at 5 P.M. on Wednesdays, I jetted off to the area of Santa Marta, in the North of Colombia.

Why Santa Marta? Well, because I already had arranged for accommodation up there since before I even left Europe. How? Because I stayed with a Couchsurfing member who I had already interacted with a few times on the website’s forums, and who had extended me an invitation up north whenever I would get…

As children we spent endless hours trying to build the perfect treehouse before spending further endless hours playing in it, didn’t we? Well there’s a chance to revisit your childhood with an added touch of luxury as Wolds Edge Holidays Lodges have created some turly special tree house lodges – that you can holiday in!

From first impressions the treehouses don’t look to be anything more than lodges that are peeping through the treetops with unbeatable views of the sourdining forrest areas. But once you get closer, and then inside, it really is a different story.

Sitting on the balacony of the treehouses are private hot tubs, finished off with mood and candle lighting so you can enjoy the bubbles well into the night.

Inside the treehouse, you’ll find…

Hola!

Good Morning Beautiful Humans. I hope you’re having a wonderful morning so far.

I recently went on a trip to Las Vegas. My first time there with my boyfriend. It was a rocky start, but it ended in the most positive way possible. We woke up dark and dreary at 2:30 AM! The beginning of the trip held a few snags, a few tears, and an anxiety attack on the airplane. Once we landed it, everything that happened in the air was forgotten. I grabbed my lover’s hand and we moved forward as one.

We stayed at the Paris Hotel, sharing a room with his parents. I was very anxious and nervous about this vacation. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go or what exactly was going to happen. I was pleasantly surprised that I had an amazing time with my love. The first day we had…

Happy On The Trails

Approaching the Suicide ledges Approaching the Suicide ledges

One of the earliest trails Fielden Stream and I hiked when we were really beginning to get into regular hiking was a 1.3 mile section of the Housatonic Range trail in Connecticut. The total trail is 5.9 miles long and traces an old Native American footpath along the ridgelines south of those the Appalachian Trail follows as it enters Connecticut in Sherman.  That day we did a total 2.6 miles out-and-back, to cover the southern end, where Route 37 splits the trail.

Those mountains, Pine Knob and Candlewood mountain have some beautiful walks through evergreen forests, as well as twisting, piled boulders to scramble through and over, if you’d like to.  (There’s a few views to the ridges to the east from Pine Knob, but the summit of Candlewood is wooded). Luckily, the rest of the trail had beautiful forests and…

Travel StorYnia: Why This Place in San Juan, La Union is Best for Unwinding

StorYnia: Stories That Define

Whenever I feel lost, I would always go back to this hipster place where we used to hang in the north. I and my college sisters discovered this place sometime in 2014 when we were bonding after our long exams. Nothing beats the sound of the waves while having a bottle of beer together with your college friends. Just recently, I visited the place again to unwind and get some beach tan.

Right after I stepped out of the bus, I went to grab a beer because of my long week at work.

The vibe of this place would be appreciated by people who love to chill and relax. There are a lot of foreigners who also spend their vacation here.

What is this place?

A Day in London

Just another day...

I live incredibly close to London. Only 25 mins away on the train so I don’t really go to London at all… apart from to work!

However last week my fellow blogger An Historian About Town came over from Canada to visit the UK and after 4 years we finally met! An Historian About Town was actually key to the beginnings of my blog! She was the first ever person to stumble upon my, what was then brand new, little blog and since then she’s helped me with its growth and allowed me to bounce many ideas off her!

So, back to our day out! AnHistorianAboutTown was desperate to visit The Queen’s House in Greenwich and she was desperate to visit Cath Kidston with me! So after meeting at London Bridge we headed out to Greenwich for a wander!

Theme parks are such fantastic places to visit while travelling. With themed shows, thrill rides, fireworks and your favourite characters, they are a true modern marvel. Japan happens to be the home of some of the world’s best amusement parks, which are definitely worth checking out. Here are some tips and tricks for some of Japan’s top theme parks.

Disneyland

The happiest place on earth really needs no introduction. Disneyland Tokyo is the second most visited theme park in the world, with 7 themed areas- the World Bazaar, Adventureland, Westernland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Critter Country and Mickey’s Toontown.

Best known for:

All the Fastpass rides, which are very popular. Several of these rides have the word ‘Mountain’ in their names for some reason. More on the Fastpass rides later.

The Dreamlights Parade, Happiness is here parade and Happiness on high parade are definite highlights.

Characters everywhere! From the classic Disney…

A trip to Battambang

Bamboo train, battambang, boat, Cambodia, Macaque, monkey, Travel

Adventurous Hermit

Note that ’bang’ is pronounced ‘bong’.

One of the best things about going to Battambang is getting there by boat. The boat leaves Siem Reap, travels briefly along the very dirty Siem Reap river, crosses the northern end of Tonle Sap – the largest freshwater lake in South East Asia, and then ambles along the Sangker River to Battambang.

Gliding through Tonle Sap is a glimpse into another world, where life is lived almost entirely on water. Life on the lake looks pretty good. I could live there in one of those cute floating houses – if I could bring myself to eat fish, or build a floating vegetable garden. JH and I debated floating garden designs as we travelled along.
