South Pacific Instagram Diary

My mermaid pals & I treated ourselves to a P&O South Pacific Cruise for our University graduation present to ourselves and spent two weeks cruising the South Pacific. Whilst we enjoyed living in luxury on sea days, we LOVED exploring Vanuatu and New Caledonia, with stops in beautiful Santo, Champagne Bay, Port Vila, Wala and Noumea.

The South Pacific is truly one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.

Exploring Ireland's Majestic Cliffs of Moher

We visited the Cliffs of Moher on our Ireland road trip as I had wanted to see them for as long as I can remember. It's not surprising that they are Ireland's most visited natural attraction, with cliffs that rise up to 214 metres at the highest point and run for 8km along the coastline looking out over Atlantic Ocean. I had high expectations for the Cliffs of Moher as they had been in my bucket list forever & I was completely blown away. They are rugged, breathtaking and worth a visit from anyone travelling in Ireland. The Cliffs of Moher were one of the most incredible natural places I've ever seen and certainly the highlight of an incredible trip to Ireland.

Grand Canyon Instagram Diary

The Grand Canyon is Spectacular and I was in awe of its vastness & natural beauty. In addition to hiking, we splurged on a helicopter ride so that we could try and take it all in from above & a boat tour along the Colorado River which snakes along the bottom of the Canyon.

Our Top 10 Island Hopping Destinations

I was lucky enough to grow up on the beach in Australia, a country which has some of the world's best beaches. I'm a total water baby and my favorite place is anywhere by the water and I was lucky enough to meet Dan who despite being English, feels the same way! We both love our summer vacations and spent a few years chasing the summer around the world on our travels. During our travels through Croatia and Turkey we discovered yachting and fell in love with sailing! It is one of the most relaxing, stress-free and wonderful ways to travel and we wanted to share 10 of our top island hopping destinations around the world... make sure you let us know yours too!
