Jess Valentine

After it being near the top of our USA bucket list for years, we finally got to experience how grand the Grand Canyon really is. After our visit many people asked us, “Which rim of the Grand Canyon is best?”

Planning an Adventure Holiday? - Like the feel of the wind at your back? Looking for a cheap easy way to get about? Renting a Moped, Scooter or Motorbike to take in the sights of overseas countries sounds like a lot of fun - and for many travellers it is - but for some this is the where the holiday can become a nightmare.


Follow the first-hand experiences of three Australian travellers who were trekking near Everest Base Camp when a massive earthquake struck Nepal in April 2015. In one of the proudest moments in our 30 year history, Cover-More was the only travel insurance company in the world to send an assistance team and an aircraft into Kathmandu to bring travellers home. This is a story of adventure, rescue and the kindness of strangers.

After a few days of Bali’s famously crowded markets and one blurry night at the Sky Garden, I was ready to leave behind our epic villa and party vibe of Kuta and immerse myself in the mountain tranquillity of Ubud. A charming place with the perfect amount of enticing restaurants, quiet retreats and hippy hangouts. Ubud is everything you have heard about and more. And of course, a great place to get a massage or partake in a yoga class.

Get off the usual traveller's track of Vancouver and Whistler and head inland to the Rocky Mountains. Canada’s Banff National Park is an outdoor adventurer’s paradise with 1600 kilometres of hiking trails.

Before we visited Clam Lake, Wisconsin, we had been told about the annual ice fishing contest, a Saturday in January when everyone in the town (37 residents) and a few people from neighbouring towns all head out onto the lake, drop a line and have a good time. The ice fishing contest also acts as a fundraiser for the local ATV club with prizes, raffles, a bar and BBQ – like a county fair on ice.

Lima is a bustling city of almost 10 million people - just under half the population of Australia – unfortunately, for most travellers, Lima is seen as merely a stopover or somewhere to catch up on missed sleep. But after spending two weeks in the Peruvian capital, I’m here to tell you it’s a beautiful place that provokes, inspires and amazes.

Ahhh, Paris. The city of love. When thinking of where we should spend our anniversary during our travels through Europe, there was clearly no other choice then to spend it in Paris.

Why I choose not to do the gruelling multiple-day trek to Machu Picchu, but instead took a luxury train: the Belmond Hiram Bingham.
