The first country we decided to explore was Colombia. In this video we go through the top things we think you should do while visiting the small colourful town of Salento, our favourite place in Colombia, and home to some of the best...

Best Soul Food in New Orleans | The culinary gem of Louisiana

New Orleans is known for Bourbon Street, jazz, and, of course, soul food. You can’t go to this city without sampling some of the best Southern, Cajun, and Creole-style dishes. NOLA is where the food is fresh, unique, and absolutely delectable, and it’s also packed with culinary variety. However, with a barrage of restaurants, it can be pretty hard to narrow down the list of the best soul food in this city....

Visit Petra like Indiana Jones: 1 day in Petra

In November of 2019 my childhood dream of playing Indiana Jones in Petra came true, and yes, it was just as amazing as I had hoped. Walking through that narrow Siq and having the carved face of the treasury suddenly come to view around the corner was just plain magical, and I couldn’t help but hum the Indiana Jones theme song when I saw it. I was one happy girl! But, while this had been a dream of mine forever, I actually had no idea that the City of Petra was as big as it is. Petra is HUGE...

Where to eat in Jerusalem: 7 delicious foodie finds

If I could write a love letter to a specific country’s food, it would be Israel. There’s a lot I love about this area of the word, but the food is a big part of why I keep going back. To be honest, I don’t really know what it is about the food there that I love so much. I mean, hummus is available around the world but it tastes better in Israel. Craft beer is, again, found around the world but I find myself craving a very specific one from Israel. Oh, and speaking of cravings, don’t...

Solo travel in Dubai: Is it safe?

When I first mentioned I would be travelling solo to Dubai, UAE I was met with some hesitation from friends and family. After all, Dubai is in the Middle East which does have a reputation for being difficult for solo female travellers. I knew that Dubai was extremely westernized and not at all like Egypt. However, even though am a very experienced solo traveller, after my rough time in Morocco I made sure to ask ahead so I could be best prepared. So I spoke to my Dubai foodie friend Liam, who...

What to wear in Dubai: Dubai packing list for women

For me, packing is the worst part of travel. Especially as a solo female traveller who wants to be respectful but also look and feel good as I explore and, of course, take photos. Some destinations are harder to pack for than others and I struggled when trying to figure out what to wear in Dubai, UAE. After all, social media feeds show that anything goes but when talking to friends who actually live and work there, that’s not quite the case. Sure, you can get away with booty shorts and a...

What to wear in Jordan: Packing tips for women

Jordan was a dream destination for me. Playing Indiana Jones in Petra, wandering through the ruins of Jerash, trying knafeh for the first time in Amman, and exploring Wadi Rum. I loved Jordan. Not only did it have some amazing sites to see and visit but I found the people warm and welcoming as well. However, as a young, female traveller from Canada, I did stress a little bit about packing and what to wear....

What to wear in Israel (& Palestine): Packing tips for women

The land of Israel and Palestine is one of the most interesting places I have ever been and has, over time, become one of my favourite destinations. So much so that I actually spent 3 months living in Tel Aviv in 2022. However, while I’m confident in picking out what to wear now, the first time I visited I struggled to figure out what to wear in Israel. I knew that a huge part of this land was religious (for Jews, Muslims, and Christians) but I also knew that while modesty and respectful...

What to wear in Morocco: A Morocco packing list for women

Figuring out what to wear in Morocco was something I stressed out about a lot before I left. I scoured Instagram for inspiration but found everything from outfits with full sleeves and long pant legs to shorts and tank tops and instagram-worthy dresses. Obviously, that didn’t help much....

The ultimate guide to Sani Resort

7km of white sandy beaches, a private yacht marina, 27 restaurants and mind-blowing facilities – is Sani Resort Europe’s best family resort? Trying to find a luxury hotel that caters equally for adults and children can be a challenge. I’m tired of hearing the old cliché – ‘if kids are happy then parents are happy’. I know I have used it myself many times, but let’s face it, most kids are happy with a swimming pool and water slides! If I am going to spend a large chunk of my...
