I know some of you must be thinking “that’s literally impossible” but I can attest to the fact that it’s totally do-able! I began writing this post in Costa Rica, a popular tourist destination which has prices to match. Prices there are the same as Europe, which is fine when you’re on a short trip […]

Hi! I'm Megz. An small town Aussie girl who left the countryside in search of something more...
I had envisioned Costa Rica to be a dense jungle paradise, a place where the word tropical took on a whole new meaning. I imagined thick wet forest, plentiful bird song and an abundance of wildlife. I wanted to feel like an explorer venturing into uncharted territory! but unfortunately I didn’t get the experience I’d […]
I promised on Instagram recently that I would follow up with how my partner and I managed to spot more wildlife in Monteverde outside of the nature reserves than in them, on our own and without a guide! I have so much to say that I couldn’t fit it all in one IG post so […]
I was so looking foward to travelling through Mexico, the land of taco’s and tequila has sat high at the top of my ‘must see’ list for a very long time! I can gladly say that it totally lived up to my expectations. For me wether or not I enjoy a place depends on how […]
I wasn’t scared to visit this part of the world but I 100% came here with an attitude of skepticism. Trust no-one, be super careful, never leave your valuables unprotected blah blah blah. The truth is I’ve learnt that those things are really the least of your worries! It’s the little stuff no-one tells you […]
We lumbered up to the bus station in Cancun in search of a bus to our next destination, Tulum or to be more precise ‘Chemuyil’ which is 10 minutes North of Tulum. We were told to catch a bus to Playa Del Carmen and then we would have to get a taxi to Chemuyil as […]
I stepped onto Albanian soil with heavy legs, dreaming of a shower. Shading my eyes from the sun I trudged towards passport control. After an unpleasant night in Corfu Airport and three hours of walking in the blistering sun I was glad to see the boat I’d arrived on disappear into the distance, a symbol […]
Iceland…where do I begin? It wasn’t so much a holiday as it was a gruelling, challenging, epic journey across what felt like another planet. Let’s just say you don’t go to Iceland to relax so if that’s the kind of trip you’re after, better you scoot off to a Greek island you can’t pronounce the […]
Would you spend the night in an airport if it meant you could visit someplace new?… A true traveller will do whatever it takes and make whatever sacrifice they must in order to take a trip and/or save on their budget. My night in Corfu airport was the night I became a true traveller. I imagine […]
I didn’t think about it much when I booked my flights to Marrakesh (or Marrakech if you’re spelling it the French way) they were cheap and it was someplace new so I hit ‘confirm purchase’ without so much as second thought. As I would come to learn, Marrakesh is not your typical summer holiday destination. […]
