Olivia's Bali Adventure

  • 12 November 2019

Our very own Olivia has recently returned from her 8-day trip around the Indonesian Island of Bali. Known as one of the most charming and exotic islands in the world, Bali contains endless fascinating sights including forested volcanic mountains, stunning beaches and coral reefs. Throughout Olivia’s group tour, she kept a daily travel diary of her adventures. Have a read on what she got up to below. 

Sometimes you need to just sit back and take in what our natural world can produce. From the fascinating animal kingdom to phenomena that illuminates our sky, nature is really something to be admired. Unfortunately, these sights are not around all that often, so in order to see them in all their glory, you’ll need to make your visit just at the right time.

Travelling is all about experiencing new culture and exposing your senses to new sights, sounds, smells, and most importantly, TASTE! Trying a new delicious recipe or type of food is a moment to be savoured and is always a memorable part of the holiday experience. So, to celebrate #WorldFoodDay, we've put together a list of the most amazing Food Festivals from around the world. Whatever food you are into, there's certainly a Food Festival out there for you!

They are peaceful, active and insightful. It's no wonder more and more people are leaning towards a walking holiday each year. But with so many stunning routes and locations to choose from, it can be hard to decide where to go. So, we've done the work for you and put together a list of European walking destinations you must visit!
