Viva Las Vegas

There’s the famous phrase of “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” so I’m not going to go too much into my 4 days in Vegas as there wasn’t so much sightseeing but more experiencing what Las Vegas has to offer. We flew with Interjet from Cancun to Las Vegas via Mexico City and landed…

The Grand Canyon

First stop of our trip was Las Vegas, but I’ll post on that later after I’ve discussed our day trip to Arizona to go and see the Grand Canyon, another wonder of the world! We had been looking online and speaking with the concierge about the best and most cost effective way to see the…

Inveigling Isla Mujeres

Continuing on our time in Cancun, we woke the next morning and headed for some breakfast before we took a taxi to the nearest harbour. Where we were headed in the direction of Isla Mujeres. Isla Mujeres is a small island 1,100km2 or 5 miles long just a short 30 minute boat ride from Cancun,…

Mayan Mexico

It was time for me to finally head on leave, it had been six months since my last lot of leave and that was just a quick five days home over Christmas. Myself and two of my best friends Chantelle and Grace had taken 12 days to go to Cancun in Mexico and to Las…

Skiing Shenanigans

Without even asking, my roster fell in such a way that I was able to join my Mum, Dad and Sister for a few days skiing. With a midnight landing meaning I had all of Tuesday off, followed by 3 days off and then a late departure on the Saturday I would get a few…

A Short But Sweet Ski Trip

I know I’ve ONLY just got back from leave, but those two flights clearly tired me out and it was time for me to go and crash my parents ski trip again. I was landing in the early hours from Frankfurt, so I had the whole of Saturday to catch a flight hopefully to either…

Incomparable Iceland

It was time for me to head away on leave again and I was really excited to be exploring outside of the Emirates network and going to Reykjavík in Iceland. Another new country to add to my list, taking my total up to 51! I was going with two of my best friends from home,…

Stopping Off In Singapore

The last stop of our Balinese adventure was to Kuta and we made our way over to the makeshift boat terminal on the beach which was just absolutely packed out with tourists. I couldn’t believe how many people were pulling in and out of here each day. As we pulled back into Padang Bai from…

Going To Gili T

The final stop of our Indonesian adventure was to a different island of Gili Trawangan just east of Bali, and out of the three Gili Islands more known for being a party island. We left our beautiful accommodation in Ubud and drove over to Padang Bai where we would take a fast boat over to…

Idyllic Indonesia

Onto the next leg of the trip we were moving onto Ubud, more in the main land of Bali rather than along the coast. I had booked to stay in an AirBNB and the owner arranged a driver to come and collect us from Seminyak. The drive over took around an hour and 15 minutes…
