India itinerary 1 month: Uttarakhand and Rajasthan itinerary

India

India is an extremely vast country. In size, it’s over 3 MILLION km squared, which makes it 13 times bigger than the UK. Yet, India is also enormously varied from place to place. From the mountainous region of Kashmir and the smoggy intensity of Delhi to the blissful beaches of Goa and the tranquil backwaters of Kerala, almost every state in India is infinitely different to the next. I truly believe you could explore India for several lifetimes and still…

Montserrat Tour from Barcelona: Ultimate guide to a Montserrat Day Trip

Spain

I never really wanted to visit Barcelona. I’ve just never had an interest in it as a destination. There’s no specific reason why, it just didn’t excite or inspire me. That was until I found out about Montserrat National Park. It’s not an exactly mainstream destination, but there was a period when every time I looked at my Instagram feed, a picture of Montserrat in Barcelona would stop me mid-scroll. The unique landscape, the craziness of the monastery cozied up…

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…
