Hiking Lake Titicaca's Isla del Sol

Lake Titicaca is the world’s largest, high altitude lake and it is easy to understand how the Incas give credit to Lake Titicaca for the creation of their entire civilisation. Located on the Southern Part of Lake Titicaca, Isla del Sol is considered by the Incas to be the birthplace of the Sun God. My best friend and I were on a tour of Bolivia and Peru with Dragoman for the final month of our time in South America. We visited this tranquil island on a day trip from Copacabana and the day we spent hiking and exploring it was a welcome relief after the craziness of La Paz!

The Spectacular Diamond Head Loop Walk

On Easter Friday we packed up the car and headed south to beautiful Diamond Head. Diamond Head is located in Crowdy Bay National Park, about 45 minutes south of Port Macquarie. Dan and I have camped at Diamond Head before and absolutely love the whole area with its natural beauty, empty beaches, excellent surf, white sand, friendly wildlife, excellent facilities and great walks! On this occasion we did the Diamond Head loop walk which gave us stunning scenic coastal views across the hinterland and coastline throughout the entire walk. The walk took us just under two hours and we loved every bit of the scenery, especially the panoramic vistas and the glinting rock faces which are said to have given Diamond Head its name.

Incredible Incan Ruins to Visit in Peru

In 2007 the incredible archaeological site of Machu Picchu was voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. This was unsurprising for anyone who has ever experienced the wonders of this magical site or for anyone who has long dreamed of visiting and ticking it off their bucket list. A lot of visitors to Peru aren’t aware of the countless other incredible Incan Ruins in Peru, many of which can be combined with a visit to Machu Picchu and most of which are within a few hours of Cusco! Peru is brimming with ancient ruins which detail the lives of the incredible Incan civilisation which thrived for over a century and are well worth visiting on your travels around Peru. I have been fascinated with the Incas and ever since I studied art at school and we spent a whole term on this ancient civilisation, along with the Mayan civilisation. To visit Peru and actually explore some of these incredible sites in person was an experience I'll never forget.

The Perfect Bali Holiday with Villa-Bali.com

Bali is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, it is a tropical island paradise that has something to offer every traveller. To some it is culture and spirituality, to others it is beaches, surfing and rice paddies, to some it is an entertainment hot spot and to many it is an extremely affordable luxury holiday destination. The Balinese people are some of the friendliest in the world and a Balinese holiday offers you a truly relaxing vacation away from the hustle and bustle of the real world. My dream Balinese holiday is to experience all the island has to offer in terms of beaches, culture and nature whilst enjoying my very own luxurious private villa with Villa-Bali.com.
