Pack Your Bags

I love to travel, at a moments notice I can have my passport in my hand and my case ready to go. Travel fills me with a sense of adventure, even when I am going back to places I have been several times before. I always check out trip advisor, before I book anything and that’s the best advice anyone can give. Get some reviews first making sure they are independent reviews. From my articles/blogs I hope to give you a flavour of the places I have been to, also my mind always fixed on getting a good deal, plus being aware of current rates can make a big difference.
