St. Johns, Antigua

I’ve wanted to visit Antigua for a while.  For me, Antigua is a proper Caribbean island. It’s one of the big holiday destinations I’ve dreamed of going to. I’ve watched many a cricket game on the TV broadcast from St. Johns and thought I’d really like to visit there one day. My Mum had said the same, so when we saw the cruise that went there, we decided that was the one for us. St. Johns was the fourth of our 5 island stops, and instead of blindly wandering around the island, we organised a tour in advance and joined 4 others in a detailed and informative island tour.

*It’s taken a long time to get back round to posting this. In light of recent events, I decided now was the perfect time to write about our amazing day. <! Continue reading

Roseau, Dominica

Dominica, the island I had been most looking forward to visiting, the island that wowed me most while I was there, the island that made me want to go back, and the island that instantly became my favourite. It is easy to see how it got the name ‘The Nature Isle’, and of all the islands, it is the one that I am most pleased we got a tour for!

Welcome to Dom-in-eek-kaa! Continue reading

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

When you think of the Caribbean, you think of white sandy beaches, and clear blue waters. You think of palm tress and coconuts. You think of doing nothing all day but relaxing in the sun, in the warmth, with a book, taking the odd dip in the sea. Well, you’re pretty much thinking of the British Virgin Islands.

Miami: The Last Leg

Wow. This is it. The last leg. The final destination. The end of almost a year abroad travelling the world and seeing some of the best places the world has to offer, with the best travel buddy around. And what a way to finish, with cocktails and football on Miami Beach, in the sun.

G’day Oz!

IMG_7440Arriving in Australia has been on my countdown clock since I finished teaching, and for Jade I am sure a lot longer. As border entries from Asia to Australia go, we got through quickly and easily, and even managed to get a stamp in our passports to ass to our growing collection. When we saw Helen in the airport I sighed in relief knowing we had made it and we would be able to stop and call somewhere home for a couple of weeks. And of course spend time with Marc and Helen.

So Long Thailand…

thaiflagThere are very few places in life that I have called home. Liverpool has and always will be my home city, and I of course counted Lancaster, my University town, as a home for 3 years. Neither of these could have prepared me for my time in Thailand, and I’m glad that the experience was so different. I have made some awesome friends, seen some amazing places, and had some fantastic times that have left me looking back with fond memories, and looking forward with high expectations, and an even higher benchmark.

We’re Just Not Beach People

aaaOur time in Thailand is coming to an end. We’ve travelled all over and seen some awesome things, and have reached our final stop: Krabi. Home to beaches, caves, and more beaches, Krabi is considered one of Thailand’s paradises, so should be the relaxing chill out time we need before the hectic run through Malaysia and Singapore.
