Natasha's Take on Independent Travel vs Guided Touring in Cambodia

I’ve always wanted to visit Cambodia, I mean, who doesn’t want to see the silhouette of Angkor Wat against a backdrop of an epic sunrise? So, when I saw the opportunity to take some leave and set off on a quick adventure (inspired by a string of public holidays), Cambodia shot straight to the...

Natasha gets Enchanted by the Danube with Uniworld

I spent 8 glorious days cruising down the Danube with Uniworld and it blew me away. Now I’ll be honest, I didn’t know if I was a ‘cruiser’ when I decided to take this trip. I wasn’t sure what to expect and being in the travel industry I tend to scrutinise everything on holiday – I compare...

Natasha Takes the Backroads of Southern Italy

Natasha Takes the Backroads of Southern Italy

I grew up in a tiny town where the only main street is about 200m long, the road out to my farm is mostly just one-lane, and it’s natural to wave at every car you pass as you rattle off onto the gravel curb. Safe to say, getting off the beaten track with Back-Roads was right up my alley! I...

Jemma's Highlights of Egypt
