With the 4 day Easter weekend just around the corner, we though we’d give you a run down on five reasons why four day weekends are simply the best.
Aside from the feeling of elation that you have two four day working weeks on either side of this epic weekend, the amazing feeling of waking up on Friday morning and realising you can lie in… then having the exact same feeling on Monday too. Bliss.
Mums are great aren’t they?! To celebrate Mother’s Day this Sunday, a day set aside specifically to spend a few hours appreciating how much our mums do for us, here’s a look at some of the best places in the world to travel with your mum.
It’s probably not often that you get to go travelling with you mum, but if you could take her anywhere, what trip would you treat her to?
The Dubai Mall.
Sydney is one of the best cities in the world. Fact.
There’s a lot to do, all set in pretty stunning surroundings. People living in and around Sydney, in Australia in general in fact, enjoy a largely ‘outdoorsey’ life style and that’s visible across every inch of Sydney.
Here’s a short city guide to Sydney, what is without a doubt one of the world best, most exciting, most liveable cities. If you’re going, lucky you, enjoy every second, if you’re not going, this is your chance to remedy that quick sharp…

I’ll tell you one thing I’m pretty sure you’re completely aware of when it comes to Fiji, this place is BEAUTIFUL (caps required). I’m lucky enough to have travelled quite a bit, and I can safely say I’ve never seen anywhere quite like it before, or since, my visit in 2012.
333 tropical islands all dotted around the largest, Viti Levu home to the nations capital Suva. A trip here is a pretty magical experience. One that can never be undersold. The reason for that is because Fiji continues to surprise people.
You come expecting beautiful surroundings and friendly people, and boy do you get that, as well as so much more.
New York is the best city on the planet. There. I said it. Having spent 2 years living, breathing and eating (mainly eating) my way round New York City, here are my top tips on how to get the most out of your time in the city that never sleeps.
Weather and When to Visit
The key learning to take from the weather around the New York metropolitan area (and in fact the entirety of the North Eastern USA) is no half measures. When it’s cold, it’s really cold, I’m talking, minus-20-the-air-is-hurting-my-face cold. And when it’s hot and humid, New York takes ‘sweaty mess’ to a whole new level, and that’s not to mention the monsoon-like rains that sometimes hit the city.
For me, the perfect time to visit is around Mid-April through June and then again from late August to Mid-October. Think clear skies and balmy English summer days. That’s not to say there is really a bad time to visit – Christmas in the city is magical.
