There’s fashionably late… and then there’s this! 2019 was a big travel year for me, and after the last 12 months that feels like a lifetime ago. Now seemed like a good time for reflection, so I filtered through 30,000 images from across 11 countries to bring you my favourites. While easy travel might still be a little while away, I hope you find some inspiration from these images.
Whew, that was a doozy! 2020 wasn’t easy for most of us - especially in the travel industry. We started this turbulent 12 months in Bali, followed by a trip to Malaysia that got drawn out due to travel restrictions. After March all the plans were thrown out the window. So we made lemonade from the lemons and extensively explored the tropical island of Langkawi, which produced dozens of pages of content on foreverbreak.com.
There’s so much to see and do in Spain, and so little time. When we planned our trip in 2019, we didn’t know where to start. We wanted it all… beaches, food, sunshine, culture, and history. But with 17 regions to choose from, Spain seemed just too big to fit into 1 trip.

Barcelona is city driven by passion. It’s the city to fall in love with all things Spanish, from delicious rice dish paella and the fruity cocktail Sangria, to Flamenco dancing and afternoon siestas, to modernist paintings and art nouveau architecture. With this 4-day itinerary, I’ve proven it is possible to live it up in Barcelona without breaking the bank.

FlyLine is a new subscription-based service to give you access to GDS wholesale rates for flights. While this is ideal for frequent travellers, even if you only go on one or two big trips per year, it can still pay itself off several times over.
House sitting is the best way I've found to explore wonderful places like a local, while spending quality time with adorable pets. My favourite service is TrustedHousesitters – the world’s largest community of pet owners and house sitters. I’ll give you all the tips you need to find and score the best house sits so you can share puppy cuddles or cat kisses and travel on a shoestring budget.
Cold hard fact. Mental barriers aside, the only thing between you and your next dream destination is one flight, and a pocket full of cash. Another cold hard fact. Finding a cheap flight is damn hard work. I came across a convenient service that takes the pain out of finding mistake fares and super cheap deals from airlines.
