Today was one of those days when you feel super grateful to live in paradise: bubbles, boats and an afternoon spent with great company, all thanks to my good friend Sam's boyfriend Mark, who organised the entire thing!

Sustainable Travel Tips

During the Sustainable Travel Summit hosted by Immersion Magazine, Randy Durband, CEO of Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) listed a few practical tips on how to be a more sustainable traveller.

The sustainable travel summit was a great even that brought sustainably minded individuals and organisations together from all over the world. Randy's discussion highlighted many interesting points, some of which I had hear before and others which really made me think about the impact I have when I travel. I really look forward to more events from Immersion Travel Magazine!

European Film Festival | Barbados

There's a European Film Festival taking place in Barbados next week and I'm super excited about it! Since moving home a few years ago, I've always been on the look out for different things to do on this wee little island, and surprisingly, there is always so much going on, you just need to know where to look for certain events. The European Film Festival has been taking place for 9 years now, and it always features a wide range of independent, documentary and feature films.

Shark Diving | Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

She was so beautiful; graceful and inquisitive, yet reserved and kept her distance. We were in her space, yet she give us enough room to feel comfortable. I felt incredibly relaxed, yet in total awe of this magnificent creature gliding next to us. Not quite what I expected to feel as I chilled at the bottom of the ocean with a 10 ft long and roughly 100 lbs pregnant, female bull shark in Mexico.
