A Seaplane Tour of San Francisco: Amazing Sightseeing in California with Klook

San Francisco Sightseeing Tour Seaplane - Intrepid Escape

It’s one of the United States’ most popular cities, and a gem on the California coast. It was my second visit to San Francisco, so I wanted to see it in style. First time around was somewhat rushed. I only had a day or two to run around and see the sights. This time I…

Skiing in Obertauern and a city break in Salzburg

Obertauern-Skiing-Salzburg-Intrepid-Escape

Let’s start with one very important fact. Obertauern is the Ski Resort with the best snow depth in all of Austria! It’s often nicknamed the “home of snow” or Snobertauern, and it’s easy to see why. It’s usually open early in the season and if there is one place that’s guaranteed snow, it’s here. Scientific…

Travel to Ethiopia: Planning for the Great Ethiopian Run

Great Ethiopian Run Planning - Intrepid Escape

I’m going to make a wild assumption. Registering for The Great Ethiopian Run is probably not on your bucket list. Not yet at least. Although if you find yourself here, reading this article, you are either interested in the event, in Ethiopia, or interested in running. So, here’s my chance to convince you why it…

Bath Uncovered unique tips city guide - Intrepid Escape

When I plan to visit somewhere, like you I research a whole host of options looking for the best things to do. The must-see spots, tourist hotspots, hidden gems, unique experiences etc. Nowadays I use a mixture of Travel Blogs like mine, Google and social media to find my inspiration. It always disappoints me how…

Staying connected and meeting people whilst travelling

Hike bike Kayak Sri Lanka Intrepid Travel

Typical holidaymakers go away to escape from the real world and take a break from their reality. And so they should. As a person who is constantly engaged in the digital world, I like nothing more than disconnecting. In fact, I plan to take a digital detox in the very near future. One of those…

10 Benefits of Group Travel

Benefits of Group Travel

Ever since the first trip I’ve ever taken, I’ve appreciated the benefits of group travel. From adventures in South East Asia, to city hopping in Europe, I love group travel. Yes it has its downsides, and sometimes you just want to travel solo. However if you get like-minded people together, looking for the same thing,…

20 things to do in Klaipeda and the Lithuania Baltic Sea Coast

20 things to do in Klaipeda and the Lithuania Baltic Sea Coast

After visiting Vilnius this summer, the Baltic Sea Coast of Lithuania was bumped up my list of places I want to see. It’s known locally as a stunning area and a bit of a hidden gem. It might not be the case in the neighbouring countries, but for us Brits it’s undiscovered. Based out of…

Things to do in Gdańsk and the Pomorskie Region, Poland

Things to do in Gdansk and Pomorskie

Would you believe me if I said that before this trip, I have never been to Poland? Sometimes I can’t either. I have so many Polish friends who would be mortified by that statement. The worst part is I’ve known it’s a bit of a sleeping giant in travel. Specifically, in terms of the outdoor…

10 things you Must Do in New Brunswick & the Fundy Coast, Canada

Bristol Weekender: A 3-day Microgap in the UK’s Street Art Capital

Bristol Weekender A 3-day Microgap - Intrepid Escape

Bristol is easily one of my favourite cities in England. I’ve been there over 10 times, mostly for nights out I must admit. I was at University up the road in Cheltenham and a lot of bands would pass through Bristol. Despite this, I still find more to Bristol on every visit. Different layers, new…

10 Things you must do in Kobe City for the Rugby World Cup

10 things you must do in Kobe Japan - Intrepid Escape

It was over a year since my last visit to Japan, so having the opportunity to go back and visit an area of the country that evaded me on my last visit, was amazing. Kobe City and the Kansai region is somewhere I simply didn’t have time to go. On top of that it’s a…

Cruising Greece & the Mediterranean with P&O Cruises

Greece P&O Cruises - Intrepid Escape

I think it’s been more than 15 years since I went on a cruise, back in early 2000s with family and friends. There are some key things that have stuck with me since. I remember sail away at sunset. I remember waking up excited to get off the ship and explore a new destination. I…

Road Trips England: Birling Gap & The Seven Sisters

Sussex Cottage holidays and Staycation dog friendly

We all know the feeling; it’s a beautiful day outside and you want to do something, but you just don’t know what? You know you want it to be different but are lacking inspiration. A lot of us are guilty of not exploring our backyard enough. Myself included. I’ve seen more of New Zealand than…

Mountains, festivals & stunning city views: This is Salzburgerland, Austria

Salzburgerland - Intrepid Escape

There’s something about Austria that’s always appealed to me. I’ve loved every trip I’ve taken here at any time of the year. As a summer destination it’s sometimes overlooked, particularly the mountains. I don’t understand why, I can’t think of many better places to hike or bike in the summer. As a region, Salzburgerland has…

Barcelona Weekender: 3 days in the Catalan Capital

Barcelona Weekender

Barcelona is another European city made hugely accessible by the rise of budget airlines, yet it’s sometimes overlooked as a holiday or long weekend destination. Us Brits in particular chose the Balearic Islands or Costa del Sol (well some of us). So after an incredible trip to Catalonia (check out my 7 Secrets of Catalonia),…

Boomtown Festival Chapter 10; A vast fantasy world in Hampshire’s hills

Boomtown Chapter 10

The Netflix series Narcos opens with the quote “Magical realism is defined as what happens when a highly detailed, realistic setting is invaded by something too strange to believe.’’ Just outside Winchester, Hampshire is a natural amphitheatre, known locally as the devil’s punchbowl. It’s a quintessential piece of tranquil English countryside; rolling green hills with…

Learning to Kite-surf in Essaouira, Morocco with KiteWorldWide

Kite-surfing Essaouira, Morocco KiteWorldWide - Intrepid Escape

The term “Slice of life” didn’t mean anything to me before this trip to Morocco. It’s the name of the kite-surfing camp run by KiteWorldWide, in collaboration with Tom Court. I guess it’s more of a concept, I thought it was just a fancy name. After a few days here I realised that there’s a…

Doorstep Skiing at Les Arcs 2000

Doorstep Skiing Les Arcs 2000

In this article I’m letting the video above do all the talking, with just a few words from me. It had been 15 years since I was last in Les Arcs, on an annual University ski trip, I was part of the Ski & Snowboard club and the University of Gloucestershire. I always remember it…

Hiking the Path of Gods Italy; the ultimate day-by-day itinerary

Hiking the Path of Gods Italy - Intrepid Escape

When I first heard about the Path of Gods Italy, a 130km hike (or walk) that connects Bologna to Florence my immediate thoughts were “I have to do it”! It even sounds epic, it’s a path of… GODS. I imagined grand views, huge mountain passes, and the kind of scenery found in this part of…

Exploring the Norwegian Fjords, with P&O Cruises

Exploring the Norwegian Fjords - Intrepid Escape

Let’s start with this confession – I’ve never been to Norway. Well at least not before this trip. Why? I don’t know, the longer it got the higher up the list it went. I knew I’d like it, correction, I knew I’d LOVE it. So naturally when I was discussing visiting with P&O Cruises it…
