Medfest an Alternative Type of Holiday for dancers!

Sparty  My Absolute Medfest highlight! At 1 am after a few hours of dancing, the DJ decks are set up inside the luxury spa and the champagne is free-flowing! It starts off feeling very glamorous and civilised sipping champagne and eating chocolate truffles inside the jacuzzi but as the music gets cranked up so does the energy, and before you know it you'll be doing the conga through the freezing cold plunge pool!...

How I got OVER 3000 views in my FIRST EVER month of blogging!

I was ecstatic with the results from my first month blogging! We all know it takes time, patience and a whole lot of hard work to create enough online traffic to take home a profit. But I thought over 3000 views was not bad at all for my first month of blogging! Add to that an offer of paid travel writing, several collaborations, a new blog award and a few really popular bloggers featuring my work on their own blogs! It really has done so much better than I could ever hope for in such a short time! Therefore I thought I'd share with new bloggers how I went about achieving this in the hope it might benefit others!... Read More...

Interview with a Local : Dubai

In my opinion, Old Deira is a must-see place when visiting Dubai. You can take a boat for 1 dirham (25 cents) to cross the river and explore the original, old, ancient Dubai. You can buy a lot of souvenirs, incent and spices - barter for the best prices! I would recommend visiting the Dubai Museum where you can learn a lot about the city's history. Apart from this, you should definitely join a desert safari once.   ... Read More...

The Ultimate Packing list for hot and cold weather in South America!

If you know me the you'll know I struggle to pack light! I'm very proud that more recently I've managed a few long weekends away with carry on luggage only. So imagine my concern packing for 9 weeks in 2 wildly different climates on the same trip?! In Peru I will be sleeping in a tent at high altitude which means sub-zero temperatures! By contrast, it will be the height of summer in Brazil (and the depths of winter when I arrived back to Gatwick!) I will also have to carry my bags for 9 weeks and this time I'm starting with a misbehaving back ... Read More...

Interview With a Local : El Medano in Tenerife

I live in El Médano, a coastal town on the Canary Island of Tenerife. Whilst the Canary Islands are very well-known throughout Europe, mainstream tourism kind of passes us by. That's mainly because of the almost constant stiff breeze, which makes it perfect for windsurfing and kite boarding. Hence the town attracts a “different” kind of tourism, one with a more active base than you generally find in the more famous resorts here.... Read More...

The real girls guide to training for high altitude

There are oodles of health and fitness blogs out there which will give you plenty of fitness regimes to get you in tip-top condition for your high altitude trek. But most of them are written by personal trainers or fitness gurus. I am neither. As a doctor I know the importance of being healthy and I try to keep reasonably fit. I LOVE dancing and dance regularly. I try to eat healthily 80% or the time (Oh ok... more like 60%) but I've never really been a gym go-er, the idea of going for a run gives me palpitations and I have to admit I drive into town more often than I walk! (I blame the rain in Wales!) But I'm a sucker for a bucket list and the Inca Trail has been on mine for as long as I can remember having one!... Read More...
