Hi! I’m Bianca, from Cape Town, South Africa and from a young age, my grandmother filled my head with stories of adventure, and crossing the great oceans in massive ships. I recognized that traveling was not just a dream for me, but my purpose. The obsession in my mind had to become a reality, and from the age of 18, I worked to travel as often as I could. Read more

Hello there, world! Today I have a great guest post on a very unique topic that I am not very familiar with: wine tours in Asia! Now I want to pack my bags! This post is written by Ian Pearson, a tech and photography enthusiast with a passion for writing and blogging.
One of the best ways to travel is to combine that pleasure with tasting excellent wine. Every wine connoisseur knows how to appreciate a good wine tour. When thinking of this beverage, a lot of people will instantly think of Europe, and places like Bordeaux in France or Tuscany in Italy.
But if you are looking for a truly unique wine tasting experience, maybe you should change the continent, and start thinking about Asian countries. In fact, there is a number of areas in Asia that are renowned for their wine production, and offer magnificent wine tours for you to experience.
Hi everyone! Today I’ve got a guest post from Diana Smith, a full time mom of two beautiful girls and a travel lover. In her free time she enjoys exploring new exciting destinations with her family. Follow her on Twitter at @DianaSmith82!
Whether you are going on an adventure or a family vacation, the truth is that you travel because it feels good. There are several different types of travelers, mainly depending on where they are going and with what purpose.

Hey guys! I’ve got another great guest post from Roxana, Roxana, an adventure loving traveler from Sydney who’s worked in the travel industry as an freelance alternative Sydney tour guide for almost two years. She’s also a blogger/editor at stylebyasia.com and highstylife.com.
Did you know that there are hundreds of festivals taking place Down Under each year? Some of them are small and community-based (e.g. Apollo Bay Music Festival), while others are large (e.g. Falls Festival) and able to bring international performers and Australian stars. The types of festivals range from arts and cultural to music, film and theme-based ones. They are being held across the entire country (which is not a small deal), but the most frequent starting point, especially for foreign tourists, is Sydney, so we too will take it from there. Here are some of the most amazing festivals held in Australia you simply cannot miss. Read more
Hey there! It’s been a while since I’ve actually posted but I can’t wait to talk about my weekend in New York to watch the ball drop! My sister and I came into Manhattan from New Jersey on December 30th and we had a room at the Riu Plaza Times Square. If you’re looking for a hotel near Times Square, this one is a great choice. Literally a block away, next to an outdoor shopping market, and across the street from Pret A Manger.
Anyway, as this was my sister’s birthday/Christmas present from me, we went out for a nice dinner to celebrate and checked out Times Square on the way to The View restaurant, at the top of the New York Marriott Marquis. It was pretty interesting to see how Times Square was already set up – the stages were there and the fencing blocking out the space for the following night. Read more
Hey guys! Today I have a guest post on New Zealand by Marie Nieves. Marie Nieves is a lifestyle blogger who loves unusual trips, gadgets and creative ideas. On her travels she likes to read poetry and prose and to surf the Internet. She is an avid lover of photography and regular author for several blogs. You can find Marie on Facebook or follow her on Twitter and Pinterest.
Once I arrived to New Zealand, I knew that I had to explore as much of it as possible. I’ve never been interested in those regular tours where I was supposed to just follow a tour guide and look around. I wanted to experience this land of green scenery and rocky coasts my way. This is why I opted for the Northern Explorer train trip from Auckland, the largest city of New Zealand, to its capital, Wellington. Read more
