Iconically​ Dutch Zaanse Schans & Delft, The Netherlands

Name some famous Dutch things. What comes to mind? Windmills? Clogs? Cycling? Cheese? Pancakes? Blue and white pottery?  If you are short on time skip Amsterdam and instead visit Zaanse Schans and then pop over to Delft to get an iconic Netherlands experience.

Super Cute Utrecht, Netherlands

Utrecht is the classic hidden gem, the ultimate understudy, the overshadowed sibling, a forgotten wallflower to cousin Amsterdam.

Uncovering Strange Species & Special Stories at Amani Forest Camp, Tanzania

What is more magnificent than a spontaneous long weekend away in a cloud forest?
Luckily, in Tanzania, this isn’t such a crazy scenario. Towards the end of a tough week, a friend and I decided there and then to throw caution to the wind, chuck a few bags in the trunk and to leave our cares behind.
