Inspiring travel books for aspiring travellers



It's a refreshing feeling to tear yourself away from the screens. I still love picking out a new travel book and getting lost in it. There's something about hard copy – the detail, the incredible photography... the feeling. And let's be honest, a published author has more credibility than most bloggers out there (hence why this blogger is telling you about them). These are my top inspiring ...

Disneyland hacks and highlights to make your trip awesome



Confession: prior to going, I wasn't sure if I was going to love Disneyland. It felt like an obligatory trip one must do while their kids are young. Turns out my piss poor attitude was proven wrong, because I had SO MUCH fun there! Although I was given an awesome suggested itinerary by a friend (thanks Julie), it still took some figuring out. So here are my top Disneyland hacks and ...

An unforgettable Bai Tu Long Bay cruise (Vietnam)



Legend has it that millions of years ago, a dragon descended on the sea Northeast of Vietnam, dropping hundreds of eggs, which hatched to form beautiful karst mountains jutting out from the sea. Bai Tu Long means "the dragon departs her offspring." Clearly she knew her work was done, as she looked back over her leathery shoulder at the calm turquoise waters and fairytale ...

What to do in Phong Nha National Park, Vietnam with kids



When I return from a trip, I usually write about my favourite place first. From our December 2018 trip, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park (Phong Nha) in Vietnam was that place. This magical UNESCO world heritage site is set in lush surroundings in Central Vietnam, and features the most amazing caves. It's listed as the number three place to visit in all of the country by Lonely Planet, but ...

Fancy a Tuscany road trip? Love wine? Read this.



A few years ago, I had the pleasure of drinking a bottle of 2008 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino. I instantly declared it one of the best red wines I had ever tasted and can still feel its perfectly smooth and silky finish. Fast forward to October 2017, when Nick and I travelled to Italy for the first time with his sister Ashley and her now husband Dale (who goes to Italy for their ...

Tofino must dos (with or without kids)



At the edge of an island on the edge of a continent, sits the ruggedly beautiful surf town of Tofino, B.C., Canada. One of Vancouver Island's gems, Tofino had been on my "must do" list for years. Luckily I live in B.C., so it was convenient to visit and combine our stay with other stops in the province. My "Tofino must dos" cover not only what to do, but also where to stay and eat, and how ...

Secrets of the incredible Galapagos Islands (9 surprises I found there)



The Galapagos Islands - sound exotic, right?! I remember learning about Charles Darwin's theories back in grade school and hearing of the Galapagos Islands for the first time. A cluster of islands in the middle of nowhere; somewhere people surely didn't visit (or so I thought). We laughed about a bird named the blue footed booby, which would've been even funnier had we known the males ...

70+ countries then baby makes three… now what?



Welcome to my first travel Q&A! I had this idea because I didn't want EVERY post on YOLO Travel Experiences to be about me and my family. I want to tell travel stories from other people who have inspired (or completely sold) me on new destinations for my bucket list, or travel ideas to keep in my back pocket .

This first Q&A is with a rad travel duo (well, trio) I ...
