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.

Break free from the usual tourist experiences and check out Denmark's thriving festival scene - a huge part of the nation's summer traditions.

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.

Nice, St Tropez and Cannes are all lovely cities to visit, but to really immerse yourself in the beauty of the south of France you should head a little more east.
