Koh Lanta, Thailand


Koh Lanta is like the ‘middle child’ amongst the islands of Thailand. While most are partying on Koh Penang or checking out the scenery of Phi Phi, Koh Lanta’s long stretches of beaches, caves, national parkland, rock climbing hot spots, stunning sunsets, yoga on the beach, happy hour drinks, sea gypsy villages and the old port town patiently await. ¬†Venture to the other side and it won’t disappoint!

Fethiye, Turkey


The only place in the world you can find Sarcophagi in the streets, Fethiye is a must see destination on Turkey’s turquoise coast. With the Kings Tombs carved into the mountains, the beautiful blue waters of Oludeniz beach (the blue lagoon), the eerie ruins of Kayakoy ghost village, the many hiking options and the rustic nature of the villages nestled in and amongst the city make Fethiye an all round destination to suit any traveller.

Petra, Jordan


One of history’s most precious jewels, Petra, is hidden in the rocky mountains of Jordan. It is truly one of the most breath taking places I have ever been too. The best part is you can make the journey as physically intense as you heart desires, you can trek the whole way for a 5 hour hike or ride a camel and or donkey handled by the local bedouins. Either way make sure you go all the way up to the Monastery to enjoy the views from the deserts and the multicolored landscape.
