After realising once we had boarded our outbound flight that I had booked our holiday under Natalie Charlton and Stuart CHARLTON, there is absolutely no hope for me… However, we did pick up some useful tips during our time in Iceland that may help the next traveler who comes along. Layers Now I know you… Continue reading Top tips for Iceland
What were we thinking, choosing the global capital of fashion as our annual city break when our usual option would be a more alternative, discreet and humble city. Italy has been on our list for a while and with only 4 days to spare, we didn’t want to spend the majority of our weekend queuing… Continue reading A long weekend in Milan.
In the Province of South Sulawesi lies the Indonesian cultural hub of Tana Toraja. Clinging onto tradition for hundreds of years, the country’s culture is at its most prominent in this region. With a boom in tourism sweeping Indonesia, particularly the island of Bali, it seems surprising (and such a shame) that Sulawesi is still an uncommon destination on… Continue reading The Funeral Rituals of Tana Toraja.
Fortunately for the natives of Cabo Verde, tourism to the West African cluster of islands has seen a boom in the past 5 years, obviously improving their economic situation. When we first visited the desert island of Boa Vista in 2014, aside from the number of active volcanoes present, one of the only erected establishment… Continue reading Cape Verde’s Island of Boa Vista

Summer doesn’t need to be over just yet, Britain! Boasting the self-acclaimed title of “the sunniest place in the UK”, the Isle of Wight is likely to experience mild weather right up until November this year, so don’t pack away your flip-flops and sunglasses just yet. A surprisingly short and direct journey from anywhere on mainland… Continue reading Welcome to the Isle of Wight
Argentina, a country that prides itself on the treatment of its cattle, thus producing the most delicious beef you could possibly imagine, (yes, it does get better than a British fillet steak!) but what is it that makes the meat so damn juicy, and where are the best places to enjoy it in the capital?
With Kingston in the southeast of the island, but the popular holiday resorts scattered along the north coast between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, planning a trip to Jamaica can seem overcomplicated to organise. Although I try to make a point of always visiting a country’s capital city, Jamaica’s identity and culture is so rich and prominent… Continue reading “Where should I go on holiday?” “Jamaica.”
Packing to go on a trip you have never been on before can be very overwhelming and difficult to get started with. When talking to other travellers, the general consensous is always “I overpacked!” There are no two packing lists that are exactly the same and being honest there are no right or wrong things… Continue reading My Travel Essentials
Looking back, I consider this the most difficult trek I completed in Southeast Asia (including the volcano climbs). This is not only because we climbed (only 2.2km) at an average of 60% gradient, including 12 ladders of 100% gradient, but predominantly because I wasn’t mentally prepared for the excursion. We decided to set out into the untouched jungles… Continue reading The Pinnacles of Borneo
