When you hear the word “YOLO” (you only live once) screamed out somewhere, you tend to roll your eyes and wait for something interesting (and sometimes stupid) to happen around you. The idea behind YOLO is that you should give everything a go at least once as you don’t know when or if the opportunity will arise again. As much as I hate to say this, but I do agree with the principle of YOLO. I don’t think we live once, but I think we live every single day and opportunities are always around us – we just have to see it as an opportunity. And when we see that opportunity, we need to grasp it with both hands and we just need to run with it.

Learning about different cultures is one of the main reasons many of us travel. When we completely immerse ourselves in a culture that is new to us, it opens the doors to a life that we never really imagined.
The Dole Plantation was one of the first places I visited in Oahu, Hawaii. Who knew that a pineapple plantation would be so popular and so interesting? I was completely swept away with the history and the information that was held by this plantation.
Did you know that Waikiki in Hawaii is home to the world’s largest passenger submarine? Who knew that this island paradise had the capability to take 64 people under the waves?! Well I didn’t until I stumbled across Atlantis Submarines and boy, do they know how to show you the magic that is under the sea.
Sure, Paris is just a perfect destination for honeymooners – the lights, the bistros, the wine, the baguette, the Eiffel Tower, and everything else. Still, when you think about it, what can you actually do in Paris? Take long walks and eat. There are some couples that would like their honeymoon to be filled with a bit more excitement than that. And because there are a lot of them, active honeymoons have become quite common. Couples that like surfing can expect quite a treat everywhere around the globe, especially in the Pacific region. Here are a few places that join romance and surfing in the best possible way.
When I travel overseas, I prefer to hire a car to explore my latest destination. I just find it so much easier to be able to go where I want and to see what I want. Not to mention it provides shelter from bad weather, a place to put all of my things and a place to charge my phone and camera.
Hiring a car isn’t for everyone, but sometimes it is just the fear of not knowing how to hire a car that stops people from doing it. Hopefully the below tips will help you feel more confident to hire a car on your next adventure.
2017 is here and life is starting to get back into the normal routine. The New Year is all about making resolutions and a ‘new year, new me’ attitude.

These guys are the ones that have inspired me to travel overseas and to explore my own backyard. I must also note that there are so many more amazing travel bloggers out there than just the 17 below.
Ah, 2016. What a bizarre year it has been. Pokémon Go took over the world and we lost countless big name celebrities. As I sit here and think about this year, I realise that it just wasn’t that great to me. Like it wasn’t bad, it just was not great. It is what I think of as a ‘stepping stone’ year; a year that will get me to somewhere better. I hope.
Ah, 2016. What a year!
As 2016 comes to an end, it is time to look ahead at what amazing countries are tipped to be the places to go in 2017…..
