What is the first thing you think of when you someone says Banff? Chances are its Lake Louise, that’s what most people picture. Having been, I can’t say I blame them. The lake and surrounding scenery is beautiful. But, while I’m glad to have seen it, sharing it with about 20,000 people in a single…

Solo Travel in Bali: Why I Didn’t Love it

By Hannah Logan - March 22, 2022
Posted in , , ,

When I booked my fights to Bali I was beyond excited. I imagined sandy beaches, beautiful rice terraces, tropical drinks, exotic temples, and first class dive sites.  It didn’t disappoint. The beaches were busy, but nice. The rice terraces were gorgeous to walk through (when it wasn’t pouring rain). The temples were great to explore and…

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I LOVED Croatia. Zadar was my favourite place that I visited when I spent a little over 2 weeks in Croatia, but the Island of Hvar was a close second. I loved checking out the massive yachts in the port, I loved strolling through the streets…

The Best Things to do in Zadar, Croatia

By Hannah Logan - February 23, 2022
Posted in ,

After spending a little over 2 weeks in Croatia, I can easily say that Zadar was my favourite spot that I visited. It didn’t have the crowds of Split, the costs of Hvar, or the unfriendliness of Dubrovnik. To me, it felt more local than touristic and had more than enough to keep me busy…

Headed to Hawaii and wondering where to stay in Oahu? I get it. My first trip to Hawaii I spent about 1 week in Oahu and struggled to pick a place to stay. Did I want to stay downtown? By the beach? Away from Honolulu and the crowds? Despite being a relatively small island, there…

Hawaii was somewhere I’ve wanted to go for years- ever since I saw Blue Crush. I might have even harboured secret dreams about being a surfer girl but, sadly, my surf lesson in Ireland proved that will never happen).  Throughout high school I doodled hibiscus flowers on all of my binders and notebooks, gazed longingly at…

Confession: I never expected to like Paris. My mom went years ago when she was in her twenties and had nothing good to say about it. That, paired with the fact that it’s known to be such a romantic destination, kind of threw me off. Of course, then I heard that Paris had some of…

Paris is known as a romantic destination for couples but it’s actually one of my favourite cities for solo travel. In fairness, I didn’t expect to love Paris. I actually only went for the first time in 2011 because I heard of the Christmas Markets but it didn’t take long for me to fall in love…

What comes to mind when you think of France? Is it the romantic city of Paris? The sea-side towns of south coast? Lavender fields in Provence, or the vineyards of Champagne?

I’ll be honest; I didn’t think that I’d like Hong Kong. I was worried that it would be too big, too busy, too modern. After spending so much time travelling through small villages and towns in Southeast Asia where I couldn’t drink the tap water or flush toilet paper, I thought that being in Hong…

When I went to French Polynesia I didn’t plan on visiting the Marquesas. While they looked amazing, I was already spending a month island-hopping across the islands of Tahiti which, if you didn’t already know, definitely did not come cheap. But, the longer I spent in French Polynesia the more I fell in love. And…
