    Why I find bicycle touring the best way to travel

    Why I find bicycle touring the best way to travel

    Before setting off on my bicycle tour around the world, I knew I wanted to go travelling. I didn’t really think about the method, I imagined I would just pack a backpack and catch a flight somewhere. The rest would figure itself out along the way. I had done small trips before my grand idea; six weeks in Kenya & Tanzania, three weeks in Thailand and city-hopping in Europe. Despite the amazing memories, I did remember the 13-hour bus rides along bumpy roads, whizzing past small towns & villages to get to the cities or the next tourist destination.

    "I won't lie, I was a bit skeptical just by watching the trailer at first. I could tell it would be very Paris, put another way, very cliché."

    A roadmap to my soul

    A roadmap to my soul

    The day we wake up, is the day we realise our souls have been guiding our journey with such grace and art that it takes a few breaths to sink it in. Whispering to us our entire lives, waiting for us to be ready to listen, becoming louder as we do. Preparing us to embrace who we are and live in alignment with It. My body is the canvas my soul chose to create the roadmap that led me to her. To me. One and the same.

    The Red Centre Down Under: Why it needs to be on your bucket list.

    The Red Centre Down Under: Why it needs to be on your bucket list.

    When you think of the Northern Territory, Australia… Do you think of red dirt, crocodiles, and flies? If you answered yes to the above, I can’t blame you. I thought the same for the first half of my career in travel before I had the opportunity to explore the hidden jewels of outback Australia.

    Quarantine in a tent? This is what I learned.

    I returned to the UK from Austria back in June and was required to wait out a fortnight in isolation. Forced to choose between locking myself in my bedroom or staying in a hostel, I chose to live in a tent instead.

    Invisible No Longer

    Invisible No Longer

    In the 1800’s, when New Zealand was colonised, the ancient and sacred female tattooing practice of moko kauae began to fade away. Its very existence was placed under threat alongside the spiritual culture and identity of Māori. Yet, what was initially thought to be lost by the devastating impact of colonisation, has now begun to blossom once again; meaning that a whole new generation of Māori women can wear their identity with pride.
