Adventurous tour of Peru with TravelBird

We had never heard about TravelBird before, but for this winters trip we did some research and stumbled across their web page.

Our Weekend Getaway to Dublin (Part 1)

It was July 2016 and we wanted to go somewhere new to celebrate our five years of traveling together.

2016 – A Year Of Travel

The year of 2016 started with a bang as we spent New Year’s Eve in Indonesia, on Bali; ‘the island of a thousand temples’. We had a few days on the island before and after the New Year began, and then we had a 9hour stopover in Singapore on our way home, and we had to exploit […]
