Xplor, Mexico

Probably our favourite outing during our week in Mexico, Xplor is a jungle-based adventure park with amazing zip wire courses, amphibious vehicles, rafting & underground rivers. You can expect to get wet too as all the zip wire courses end up with you flying through waterfalls and/or landing in water - it's quite refreshing though... Continue Reading →

Coba Ruins & Xel-ha, Mexico

Another tour booked through Experiencias Xcaret and the perfect blend of culture and activity! The first part of this tour starts out at Coba, an ancient Maya city. Due to its remote location (only a short drive from our hotel though), the site is not as popular as other archaeological sites in Mexico like Chichen Itza.... Continue Reading →

Chichen Itza & Valladolid, Mexico

One of the most visited archaeological sites in Mexico, Chichen Itza is a large city built by the Maya. The main focus at Chichen Itza is the pyramid-like El Castillo. Built sometime between the 9th and 12th centuries, El Castillo served as a temple to the god Kukulkan - the feathered serpent. Our guide informed us that during... Continue Reading →

Bellagio, Las Vegas

Hollywood Cafe, San Francisco

We read about this place online and it didn't disappoint. In fact, it was so good that we went there twice for breakfast during our 3-day visit to San Francisco! It's worth noting that it's not the biggest of places so be prepared to stand in line - on both occasions we had to queue... Continue Reading →

E Tutto Qua, San Francisco

What an absolute gem of a restaurant; stunning, authentic Italian food, lively atmosphere and charismatic staff! We met friends here for dinner one Saturday evening and the place was absolutely buzzing, nonetheless we still managed to catch up over a superb meal with one or two Birra Moretti’s too! There’s a great choice of “generously... Continue Reading →

Pier 2620 Hotel, San Francisco

Located in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf neighbourhood, the hotel is in close proximity to some of “The City’s” most iconic tourist attractions; Alcatraz Cruises (Pier 31), Sea lions (Pier 39) and Lombard Street - the “crookedest street in the world” – are all within a 15-20 minute walk, and if you don’t fancy walking there’s...

Jaypee Greens Resort, India

Just when I thought this hotel couldn't get any better...it did! On my second visit to Jaypee Greens Golf & Spa Resort I rather fortuitously ended up in a Deluxe Suite - not that I needed a separate office / living room, two balconies and a bath tub big enough to fit four people! The... Continue Reading →
