India Itinerary for a Month: Rajasthan and Uttarakhand

India

So, it’s finally time for me to get round to writing about my trip to India this past Christmas. It’s only been six months, after all. I always prefer to write about a place while the memories are fresh in my mind, whilst I’m on the road or when I’ve just returned and although I do often procrastinate from this plan and take a while to actually publish my posts, there’s something more to what made me so delayed in…

Montserrat Day Trip from Barcelona: Your Ultimate Guide to Montserrat National Park

Spain

This last February, I spent 4 days in the beautiful Barcelona basking in its ever-sunny climate and exploring the Catalan culture and history. Barcelona is a beautiful city and I recommend that everyone visits once in their lives just for the architecture alone. However, anyone who knows me knows that I love the outdoors and my favourite day on my Barcelona trip was the day trip I took to Montserrat National Park. In fact, Barcelona was extremely low down on my…

Couchsurfing in India: It’s not that scary, I promise

Couchsurfing India

Everything that I read online about travelling in India somehow alludes to how dangerous it is. I constantly see posts on Facebook travel groups written by people who want to travel to India but are scared of what to expect, people who completely disregard India as a destination due to fear for their personal safety and people who put India on some kind of pedestal as ‘the worst place for women to travel in the world.’ I recently saw a…

Ultimate Couchsurfing Guide: A Complete Guide from Start to Finish

Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing has become increasingly popular in recent years as an easy way to meet local people and lodge for free in a new city. I began couchsurfing last year as a way to travel every weekend without completely breaking the bank. I was ready to take advantage of my year abroad but of course, travelling that regularly can get a little costly- especially for those on a student budget like yours truly. By embracing Couchsurfing, I was able to explore…

5 Off the Beaten Track Destinations in France

france

I’ve spent at a lot of time since September travelling around France during the weekends, making the most of my year abroad and visiting some of its lesser-known destinations. Most of France is completely obscured by the bright shining light of its capital, Paris. The capital of France is one of the most popular city breaks in the world but a lot of the places that I consider my favourites in France are often not on the radar of many…
