Houseboat Stay in Kerala

Our houseboat stay on the backwaters of Kerala was one of our most memorable experiences from the South of India. Relaxing on board with nothing to do apart from people watching, fishing, eating and relaxing! With a Captain, Chef and helpers on board, you do not have to worry about anything. We stayed for 2 nights as the check in time is 12pm and check out is 9am so 1 night just isn't enough to really ...

Eating Bugs in Thailand

You don't have to go to many markets in Thailand before you see deep fried bugs being sold! From grasshoppers to beetles, Thai's love a good bug and they snack on them like crisps. We have visited Thailand so many times but never cared for trying these little critters. This time, I thought 'why not?'. Benjamin on the other hand, stayed behind the camera, he tends to eat with his eyes and was not ...

Swimming with Sharks & Stingrays in French Polynesia



Spotting Sharks and Stingrays from our overwater bungalow at the Intercontinental Resort & Spa Moorea was so much fun that we had to go looking for them in the daytime. It wasn't hard as these sharks swim in shallow waters and can be found close to the shore. We took a couple of kayaks out and before we knew it, we were surrounded by sharks and stingrays. The sharks are harmless and ...

Arriving in Guatemala was very exciting and totally unknown as It was the first new country we visited. Driving through the city felt very much like Mexico City.

Things to do with kids in Antigua, Guatemala Antigua is a great alternative ...
