Travel Tips





My recommendation to anyone spending two days on the Isle of Skye would be to just drive. Worry less about where you are going and just go. There are like three roads on the island, so you can't get lost, and regardless of where you drive, you are bound to find something truly beautiful.


I had a fairly humble bucket list upon moving to Edinburgh; I wanted to see the sites that inspired J.K. Rowling to write Harry Potter, learn to like whisky, visit the highlands. I have now been to every site even vaguely related to Harry Potter, I am an avid whisky drinker, and I went on one adventure with two of my very best friends in the Highlands of Scotland. More specifically, I went on an Isle of Skye camping trip that was one of the most stunning, exciting, and laughter-filled adventures of my many years of travel.


I fell in love with Dar Ghax-Xemx before I even stepped inside. It sits on a small, winding street lined with old, limestone buildings. The street is narrow, but it's made even narrower by the overflowing with plants that pour out of the pots lining the historic brick alley. The setting is picturesque to say the least. But one thing I’ve learned from my travels is to never judge a book by its cover. So I held my judgments for after I’d spent a night in this vacation rental. Here’s what I discovered.


My life philosophy is simple: say yes whenever possible. When presented with a new adventure, I ask myself a few simple questions: Am I physically capable? Am I mentally able? Do I want to? Can I afford it? Is it (probably) safe? If the answer is yes, I say yes. Kayaking in Gozo soared through the test and before long, I was on a little red Kayak in the middle of the ocean with my guide, Ted, and fellow adventurer, Rich, on our way to El Comino Island.


A Review of Villagg Tal Fanal in Gozo


I spent my first day in Malta exploring the old streets of Valetta, touring St. John's cathedral, and eating over-priced fish. That night I stayed in a lovely hostel, but hostel none-the-less. The next day I hopped on a ferry to Gozo and my vacation quickly changed pace. I left the tourists behind and set foot on the quieter, less developed island of Gozo. But that wasn't the only change of pace. I also traded youth hostel for vacation rental. And as much as I loved the hostel, I was not about to co...


Malta and Gozo are the two islands making up The Republic of Malta. They may be part of the same country, but they are incredibly different islands. When planning my trip to this pair of islands, I was pretty torn and struggled to decide how to split my time. The internet didn't help. There's was surprisingly little information on Malta vs Gozo. If it hadn't been for the advice of a fellow traveler, I don't know what I would have done. In the end I decided to spend most my time on Gozo, and I'm glad I did, but that's no...


I arrived in Malta all a flutter. It was my first time traveling solo in over a year and I could feel myself sinking into the familiar sensation of being somewhere entirely unfamiliar. The air felt fresher than the air in Scotland. Not that Maltese air is actually any fresher, but there's something about newness that tastes crisp and clear. I was excited to be on the road again and eager to start exploring. But after a long day of travel, I was also exhausted. It was in this state that I arrived at Boho Hostel. Boho is a hostel in Malta in...
