I love this feeling - after finishing a long drive with many hairpin turns, stopping at the top and looking back at the road.
Sometimes you can see it all, sometimes almost nothing. But it's always there.
I want to say something like "that's like life, you always see turns, you're not sure where the road will get you but then you look back and you can see what it was" but I guess that's too tacky...
So yes. That's driving life. No analogies. Just pure fun roads. Add to this good weather and you have one happy rider.
Day 4 Morocco (Part 3) - watching locals build a mud wall...sunset on the valley...obsessed with window views...and an afternoon snack of donuts and chips. #sistersdomorocco#seetheworld

Not knowing much about the destination of your spontaneous last minute trip is actually sometimes good for you.
Less expectations and more appreciation to what happens along the way.
I had never heard of Zakynthos island before. All I needed to know was that it was in Greece and that it was warmer and sunnier there than at home.😅 I did a little googling about what to do on the island one day before my trip and it was enough to have an approximate idea of how to spend one week there. A safari tour on a jeep exploring the island and a boat trip around the island were the two essential things to do.
As this was the end of the busy touristy season, there were discounts, lots of space, peace and quiet, which I personally appreciate a lot. 😌
If, however, you're a party person, the last weeks before ending the high-season would most likely not be for you. 😀
Either way, you may be struggling to remember the name of the island before the visit, but one week spent on it is enough to remember Zakynthos for a long time.🏝🌄☀️🌟

In need of being on the go solo, completely disconnected, where should I go❓❓
Day 4 Morocco (Part 2) - hiking through the canyon continued, watching strong women carry wood for cooking, a Moroccan sheep jam, kids running on cliffs, and another hike following an afternoon break. #sistersdomorocco#seetheworld

Our short getaway❤️
This little town is one for the books, I couldn’t have asked for a better trip with the hubby 😘
Some much needed time to ourselves while the rest of the world just passed by☺️
These days it’s hard not getting caught up in the rat race of life - I can’t begin to explain how much I appreciate the little down moments we find in the chaos of it all
My best friend - foodie partner - travel buddy - whatever you want to call it, I wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else❤️
We also made some new friends that we will be back to see soon as we owe them some shots of tequila 😂
Our air bnb was so perfect and cozy
It couldn’t have been more beautiful
This weekend we let simplicity be a priority and we drank in every second
Thanks to my love for planning this trip and always being a trooper through it all @xavier_cisco .
Happy Thanksgiving Canada. I am so grateful for all of you.
I am thankful for my amazing family. I am grateful to all of my clients for giving me the opportunity to do a job that I love. A day doesn’t go by without me realizing how truly charmed our lives are.
💭💭 Currently daydreaming about cute walks along the harbor from my bed whilst I'm working on a new and exciting thing! 💭💭⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm rewatching Bones for the 3rd time and I'm in serious need of a new series to watch! I even tried to get into the office and I'm sorry to say I REALLY don't like it! Don't come for me, Office lovers! 🙈 I need all the Netflix recommendations!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How are you spending the rest of your Sunday? Tomorrow is a day off for me so I'll probably have a late-night, work on some exciting things and end up procrastinating!
“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things: air, sleep, dreams, sea, the sky - all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.” Cesare Pavese 🇧🇪 Picturesque scenes captured like this one, don’t ever tell the full story. It’s a piece of the glorious reward but it doesn’t convey any of the struggle of foreign travel, like how we traveled for a total of 48 hours, 9 of which were on an unimaginably horrible bus ride with frozen toes, for the opportunity to explore this magical place for just 72 hours. My mistakes were many but they shape a pretty hilarious story and make these tasty moments that much sweeter and my gratitude for life, adventure and my patient, quick to forgive guy that much greater. ❤️With @peregrination_photography

You can’t come to Brighton and not eat fish and chips🐟
Bankers on the Western Road was named the best UK chain at the National Fish & Chip Awards in 2016. You can eat in, but if the sun is shining get a takeaway and scoff it on the beach🌊

On your next trip to County Galway why not travel a little further afield and spend the day at Gleninchaquin Park🌌
This spectacular valley makes for a great day out for the experienced walker, but there are also gentler routes for those who wish to stroll and enjoy the scenery with a picnic.
Access this private park via Kenmare, the closest town (stock up on picnic goodies and supplies here as there's only a small cafe on site).

The sudden change in weather and consequent downpour brought back sweet memories of the morning we spent strolling Hyde Park this time last year. Autumn will always be my favourite season 😍 Bring on more wintery photos!

Thinking about a trip to Cardiff?
The choice of things to do in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan is endless. Thanks to the filming of high profile dramas such as Doctor Who, Ordinary Lies, Sherlock and Casualty, many Cardiff landmarks are becoming instantly recognisable. And celeb spotting has become a more worthwhile activity as well-known names such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Jodie Whittaker and Hamilton star Lin Manuel-Miranda descend on the city🛳

Looking for something different to do on your next trip to Dublin? Take a walk on the Great South Wall all the way to Poolbeg Lighthouse.
Start from the roundabout on the southside beside the Eastlink Bridge in Ringsend. It's a 30-40 minute walk from here depending on your pace, but the views and the sea air make it worth the while.
Built in 1768 the Poolbeg Lighthouse was initially operated on candlepower, eventually changing to oil in 1786. It was re-designed and re-built into its present form in 1820 and looks great in pictures! 🌊🌊🌊

Alongside its awe-inspiring mountain ranges, distinctive Welsh accent and fascinating Celtic culture, Wales is also home to some astoundingly beautiful and rugged coastal areas🌊
On your next trip to this ancient land why not explore the village of Castlemartin located in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. A must-see is the 'The Green Bridge of Wales', a naturally occurring arch formed from Carboniferous Limestone🥾
The bridge is accessible through the Castlemartin Firing Range, so make a call to the Visitor Centre ahead of your trip to make sure the range is open.
