Together In Travel

Travel is about making memories and it gives us amazing stories to tell to others. It is about seeing the world through the eyes of someone else, breathing the air of faraway lands and sparking a search for the undiscovered. It connects us across borders, and that has never been so relevant as it is right now.

Food and Culture: The Taste of History

When did you last hear that the ‘journey is more important than the destination’? It’s especially true in the case of going on holiday, when the eventual destination is invariably going home again. Have you ever had a sense of belonging when miles away from where you started out? How can you drift past a door and smell a home-cooked meal without necessarily recognising any of the ingredients? 

Sustainability is becoming a watchword in all walks of life as people look to an uncertain future. The preservation of culture and environment is of paramount importance to us as we described in our last blog “Overtourism or Overhyped” and this approach is being adopted all around us. We are inspired everyday by the attitude taken by those in our local community in promoting a sustainable way of life. From how we buy things to how we dispose of them, there are some amazing initiatives being launched in our own back yard. But how can these methods apply to long haul travel?

Overtourism or Overhyped?

You have trained for years. You have bought the equipment and the tickets, trekked through the elements and climbed beyond where you thought you ever could… and now you are queuing for your moment at the top of the world.

“’Hakuna Matata’ What a wonderful phrase”…

If you are starting to sing the rest of this Disney classic then you’ll undoubtedly be as excited as we are about the recently released live action remake. What could be better than reliving the highs and the lows of Simba’s journey? How about being there yourself?

Halal-Friendly Africa and Beyond

The lengths that we go to immerse ourselves in another culture when we travel are determined largely by the choices we make when we’re at home. Our time and money is precious and so we want to make the most of our holiday experiences, rather than compromising for the sake of a pre-determined package.

No More Plastic Please

Plastic. Versatile and strong; practical and cheap… and everywhere. The astronomical demand for plastic has made it one of the most consumed products in the world.


We all have our mountains to climb. Some are metaphorical obstacles carved into blockades while others are literal mountains. Twice in the last decade, a group of British celebrities have taken on the challenge of climbing to the highest point in Africa and conquering Kilimanjaro in order to raise money for Comic Relief.
