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?”

You’ll feel on top of the world in just 20 minutes when you hike up Hawaii’s Crouching Lion trail. The Crouching Lion trail near the township of Kaaawa on the island of Oahu is now one of my all-time favourite hikes owing to its breathtaking views of the mountains and coastline.

St. Petersburg captured my attention right from the moment I watched Anastasia as a little girl. Despite brimming with glitz and glamour, the former Russian capital has not always been like a scene from a Disney movie.

I’m lying in a hammock suspended between two trees, with a mosquito net above me to keep myself being consumed by insects. My entire lower body aches from climbing, hiking and, admittedly, falling through ten kilometres of dense jungle and caves throughout the day. The soft, sombre sound of rain pattering over my head melodically blends with the crashing sound of the waterfall right next to our camp.

Seattle. Known for its Space Needle, grunge music, old markets and wet weather. The Washington State city offers a unique experience to that of many other U.S. cities on the west coast and quickly became one of our favourite places in the U.S. but not for the reasons you might expect. Here are 5 fun things you must do during a visit to Seattle.

If you are looking to travel from Chile to Argentina, a scenic and unique experience is to go by road. From Santiago, Argentina’s wine region of Mendoza is a full day’s bus journey away. Yet there is little chance you will get bored on this drive, with spectacular views around every twist and turn.

When I told people I was going to Estonia, I was met with blank stares and comments like, ‘where is that?’ and ‘what do you see there?’ Estonia is part of the Baltics which include Latvia and Lithuania and sits next to Russia. Estonia faces the Baltic Sea and is only a short two hour ferry ride from Finland.

My wife, Inga, and I, along with our four-year-old daughter Andy, packed, sold or donated everything we owned and headed off for a year adventure, with a plan to housesit our way around North America.

I paced down the streets of downtown Hanoi clutching in my hand a damp piece of paper courtesy of the monsoonal rain. On it was scribbled the address of the best local food in town, suggested by my tour guide after I told him I didn’t want Vietnamese food - I wanted food that Vietnamese people ate.

There are a lot of Greek Islands to choose from and they each have a reputation for something - some are party islands, others are family resort islands, all are stunning.

If you’re looking for a unique place off the beaten path in the UK, then consider visiting the Isle of Skye. The Isle of Skye is part of the Inner Hebrides chain of islands off Scotland’s west coast and is only a couple of kilometres from the Scottish mainland. This beautiful part of the world is full of breathtaking landscapes perfect for hiking or simply a road trip.
