 Welcome to my guide section: a comprehensive planning tool specially crafted for the independent traveller, with practical tips, sample itineraries, links to resources and information about what worked and didn’t for us.

All recommendations in the ensuing pages are based on my own experience unless otherwise stated. Reviews and collaborations are clearly disclosed.

Destinations are nested within Continents (below) – Countries – Regions/Cities. Some cities that demand in-depth exploration have been split into dedicated guide pages under CITY BREAKS. If you are yet to shortlist your destination, the EXPERIENCES page ,with stories categorised into themes, is the place to seek inspiration. 

PLANNING pages hold tips on photography, travel gear, visas etc. and the RESOURCES page lists the resources and Apps I use before and during a journey. I’ve compiled pre-planning tips into a concise checklist that you can download when you subscribe via email.
