Kandolhu Island, Maldives: A Perfect Paradise

August 9, 2017

There is something so incredible about completely disconnecting and spending days doing practically nothing other than lying in the sun for hours on end. And that’s exactly what we did during our week long honeymoon in the Maldives. Kandolhu, Maldives is the perfect island paradise for a romantic getaway and truly did it’s job as a honeymoon destination, creating a private and romantic experience for us. We spent 7 night on this paradise island wining, dining, and scuba diving. And we can confidently conclude that it is the perfect honeymoon location for those looking to unwind and truly relish in their newlywed status.

Is this the Most Scenic Drive in Scotland?

Photos to take every time you travel - how to take epic travel photos - improve your travel photography

After experiencing the beauty of Loch Lomond first hand while glamping at Portnellan Farm, we knew we wanted to share all of the details of our trip. Perhaps our favorite part (other than the epic sunset we witnessed at Portnellan Farm) was this scenic drive around Loch Lomond. While Loch Lomond does not necessarily have a ‘ring road’ or ‘golden circle’, it does have it’s own circular route, even if it doesn’t come with a fancy name. We did not make it all the way around, but we did map it all the way out in hopes that we would. This may or may not be the most beautiful scenic drive in the UK, but it’s definitely high on the list regardless.

Glamping on Loch Lomond

Glamping on Loch Lomond - Portnellan Farm, Loch Lomond, Scotland

When we decided to make a weekend trip up to Loch Lomond, we knew we wanted accommodation with a view. However, we also knew we didn’t want to break the bank. While we considered Lodge on Loch Lomond and Airbnbs, we were so excited when we stumbled upon Portnellan Farm. Glamping on Loch Lomond seemed like the perfect match of affordability, comfort, and beautiful views. And that’s just what Portnellan Farm could offer!

While the weather did not cooperate with us during our stay on Loch Lomond, we couldn’t complain while we listened to the peaceful music of the rain through our bell tent as we went to sleep. Portnellan Farm is located on a gorgeous plot of land in the perfect location. Our only regret is not spending more time there!

There is so much to do in London that it’s hard to know where to start. Most ‘What to do in London’ lists cannot even narrow things down, leaving tourists with a list of 25 ‘must see’ attractions to cram into three days – not even taking into consideration the queues and opening times, that’s pretty much impossible! To help you make sense of the London tourist network, we’ve decided to publish a list of the 10 London attractions actually worth the hype. Forget trying to cram in 25 attractions, most of which require a fee; instead, visit the best of the best and leave time to spare to wander around or become familiar with pub culture!

5 Must Visit Wineries in England

May 10, 2017

Many people associate England with pubs, beer, and gin. And rightly so! However, it’s time that England also becomes known for something that we love just as much as those things – wine. English wine, and particularly English sparkling wine, is produced at a quality expected from the top wine regions of the world, which only means one thing: in the future, England will be one of the top wine regions in the world.There are already over 100 wineries in England, many of which offer tours and tastings throughout the year. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to experience England’s wineries now, before they become flooded with tourists.

As wine lovers, we are incredibly excited to share our English wine experiences and hopefully help spread the word about English wine and encourage wine tourism in England. At this point in time, we have visited 9 of England’s wineries and we plan to visit all of them at some point. Here’s a deeper look into English wine and our recommendations for 5 must visit wineries in England.
