    Oxford Travel Bucket List

    This summer has been pretty incredible, so far. I have been lucky enough to go back to Oxford and see some unforgettable things the city has to offer. I was so captured by my trip I wanted to create my Oxford Travel Bucket List to inspire others to explore the city and to remind myself to discover more of Oxford. When I go out on day trips, weekend breaks or even longer trips, I find it is easy to get swept up in the excitement and wonder of a new place that I either forget to visit important, once-in-a-lifetime sites or that I run out of time to do everything…

    Things to do in Oxford | One Day Itinerary

    Oxford, Oxfordshire is definitely one of the most famous and charming cities in the United Kingdom. Is the hype overrated? Heck, NO! There are a plethora of things to do in Oxford for people of all ages and with a train, bus and car access, it is the perfect city for a hassle-free day trip from whatever part of England you’re in. The last time I was in Oxford, I spent the entire day attending the university’s Open Day. I went to all the English and History lectures, worrying about which college I’d end up applying to. In the end, I didn’t go to the University of Oxford, so ultimately…

    My Ultimate Travel Bucket List

    What Inspired Me To Create My Ultimate Travel Bucket List? So why did I create my ultimate travel bucket list? First, for as long as I can remember, I have wanted to travel the world. Some say that is because of my Aquarius nature but I have a sneaky feeling it is because of my family. My parents have travelled to some amazing places like Bangkok, Africa, India, Vietnam and Bali (to name but a few) and the stories they told and pictures they showed awoke something within me. I can only describe it as a hunger to travel or a calling, which believe me I know sounds cheesy or…

    Traditional Egyptian Home [Day Trip Guide]

    Whilst travelling down the River Nile on a rather deserted cruise, we took a jeep out into the desert. Here we went to visit a remote rural village and a traditional Egyptian home. This village has kept the essence and appearance of an ancient traditional housing complex and traditional architecture. An Island village Arriving at the village, I caught sight of several small children ranging from the age of five to around fifteen. They were all hiding behind pillars, cars, and anything that would provide them with sufficient concealment. Suddenly I realised that in their eyes we were intruders. We were invading their private home, that has been unfrequented by…

    The Savoy Hotel, Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt

    Before going on holiday all I ever heard for months was ‘be careful out there… the heat is unbearable… make sure you wear sun cream’. In all honesty, I thought these people were just being rather hyperbolic and trying to scare me. I thought I had been abroad before, so I’m an experienced trooper I’ll be fine. Right? Gosh, was I wrong! Upon landing, I remember thinking the concept I had of ‘heat’ did not match up to Egypt’s climate. We arrived at our hotel, The Four Seasons, around midnight. It was, to my surprise, still around 36 degrees and the humidity was increasing. I can’t say if this was…

    The Nile River | The Best Way To Travel Egypt

    After a lazy week of sun, swimming and eating in Soho Square, we embarked on a 7-day cruise down the Nile River. We started in Luxor and travelled to Aswan. Each day provided a new opportunity to explore temples, museums and markets. If we lacked the energy to go out, we remained on board the cruise. Here we enjoyed the serene scenery and the luxury of having a deserted cruise to ourselves. The Nile River is the best way to explore Egypt Embarking on a trip down the Nile River is a truly magical (and stress-free) way to explore and discover the ancient world of Egypt.
