Helsinki Weekender: Things to do in Helsinki, Finland

Things to do in Helsinki - Intrepid Escape

I recently spent some time in Helskinki to celebrate Finland’s 100th birthday! The capital of Finland has a lot to offer, so whether you’re visiting for a weekend, or on a stopover from the airport. Take my list, save it in your phone, and do as many of the following as physically possible during your…

Swimming with Turtles in Barbados

Swimming with Turtles Barbados - Intrepid Escape

Recently I was invited to the island of Barbados, to celebrate their 50 years of independence. I haven’t been since I was 17; let’s just say that’s a while ago and leave it at that! The purpose of the visit was to experience Barbados, write about it, and show you just what it has to…

Running in Kungsholmen, Stockholm

Run of the month Stockholm

Whenever I find myself in a new place, where possible I will always try to run and explore it. There’s no better way to get your bearings, and get a feel for a city or place you’re in. I was in Stockholm for TBEX, a conference for Travel Bloggers, and stayed in a hostel near…

Watching Baby Sea Turtles in Tortuguero, Costa Rica

Baby Sea Turtles Tortuguero

I was ridiculously excited about my first trip to Costa Rica, it’s a destination that’s been high on my hit list for a long time, and watching Sea Turtles hatch and make their way to the ocean is on my bucket list! So as soon as I got the itinerary, like a kid I made…

Pilanesburg National Park & Game Reserve, South Africa

Pilanesburg National Park

Recently I visited South Africa for the first time; this amazing trip was centred around Johannesburg. It was a jam packed itinerary, which saw me discover Soweto, take a tour of the city, Bungee from the Orlando Towers, and then spend a couple of unforgettable days in Pilanesburg National Park. Pilanesburg National Park and Game…

Horse Riding & Wine Tasting in Temecula, California

Horse Riding Wine Tasting Temecula

I found myself in Los Angeles ready to travel the Big Sur to San Francisco. With a couple of days to spare I got in touch with my friend and fellow Best Job in the World finalist Chanel, who invited me down to Temecula. But not just to visit, to go Horse Riding and Wine…

Road trip to the European Bike Week, Faaker See

European Bike Week Jeep

When I was first made aware of Jeep’s ‘Off The Map’ campaign, I couldn’t think of anything more inline with Intrepid Escape. Spontaneous adventure, breaking away from the norm, escaping routine. So I couldn’t have been more thrilled to be invited to join them on a road trip from Venice Italy, to Faaker See in…

The Orlando Towers Bungee, Johannesburg

Orlando Towers Bungee - Intrepid Escape

I wasn’t scared at first. Not during the build up, the shaky lift up the tower, or whilst waiting for my turn at the top. And then as I shuffled towards the edge, GoPro in one hand and Snapchat on the other. I was terrified. I had to override every part of my brain that…

California Calling: LA to San Francisco with Trek America

California Calling - Intrepid Escape

Five years ago, I took off with a round the world ticket, it finished in the USA. It was the best thing I ever did in my life, and shaped my future in travel. But there’s always been one part of that itinerary missing, a part I had to skip. I found out the hard…

A day trip on the Ferry: Buenos Aires to Colonia, Uruguay

Ferry to Colonia - Intrepid Escape

If you’ve followed my trip to Buenos Aires then you’ll have seen the 10 Things you Must Do. One of them was taking the ferry to Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay for a day trip, and I cannot recommend this one enough! Buenos Aires is a great city, but like most big cities it’s hectic…

No Excuses: 3 tips for keeping fit when travelling

Keeping fit when travelling - Intrepid Escape

Being the lucky little wanderer I am, last year I found myself on no less than 15 getaways, for both work and pleasure. From the tropics of Bali, to the gritty streets of Shenzhen, the artsy cafes of Hanoi to the summery (yes, actually) London town – it was a jam-packed year of packing, travelling…

Discover the Mayan Ruins – 10 things you probably didn’t know about the Maya

Discover the Mayan Ruins - Intrepid Escape

If you’re like me, you probably know little about the Maya and their history. I knew they were an advanced civilisation, and I knew they existed in Central America, but that’s more or less it. That is until a recent visit to Guatemala and Belize to see the Mayan Ruins for myself. My eyes were…

The 7 Greatest Moments of 2015

Top 7 Moments 2015

The New Year is always a great time to reflect on the previous year, think about the things in life you are grateful for, what you could have done differently, what you want to achieve the following year and what’s important in life. Living a life filled with travel is a privilege, one I have…

Pouring Kozel beer with a Czech Beer Master

Kozel Brewery - Intrepid Escape

When ever I visit somewhere new, it’s always on my list to sample the local beer and check out the craft beer scene. So visiting Prague with My Travelove is a beer-drinkers dream! In 2011 Czech Republic was the 15th largest producer of beer which isn’t bad considering the size of the country. It’s always…

Exploring Panama: The Country that Connects the World

Exploring Panama - Intrepid Escape

You don’t come across too many people who pop to Panama for a holiday, and it’s never been somewhere high on my list if I am completely honest. I figured I’d see it one day, and I’ve always been interested in the Panama Canal, but other than that I don’t know much about it. This…

Is there a British Music Festival better than Bestival?

Bestival 2015

It could be because it’s the final festival of the season, it could be the Island mentality you get on the Isle of Wight, or it could just be the crazy 2015 Summer of Love theme. Who knows? But Bestival is one of the greatest festivals I have every been to, certainly on UK soil….
