This week’s #FeatureFriday takes inspiration from one of our favourite round the world routes, drum roll please…. The Bula Loop! From the bustling cities of Bangkok and Singapore to laid- back beach vibes of Sydney and Fiji, gettin’ all American in LAX and the Big Apple. The world could be yours from £1,139! Check it out…
Today’s blog comes from the lovely Louise Jones a Travel Expert in our Goodge Street, London store. She’s talking all things Fiji, so sip that pina colada, lie back in your hammock and read on…
Last month 11 of STA Travels finest employees were lucky enough to jet off to the South Pacific nation of Fiji for 10 whole days. Now bear in mind here that travel time to Fiji from the UK is a good 25 hours – that left us with just 8 days to cram in as much as possible (and of course work on our tans!). The anticipation of what was in store for us was off the scale and the reality exceeded all of our expectations so with the few words we have I will try and walk you through the trip as if you were there. Cue the jealousy.
After a long and tiring journey for those coming from the Northern Hemisphere we arrive weary but delighted to have landed safely in the ‘home of happiness’ – their words not ours – could it be true? I for one couldn’t wait to find out! We are greeted with a warm welcome and head off to our first resort on mainland Fiji, excited to meet the rest of our group who had travelled from Germany, Austria, New Zealand and Australia.
With epic coastlines, lush jungles and towering volcanoes, Central America is an adventure playground waiting to be explored but if you’re more into chilling out, than thrilling out – soak up the region’s laid back Caribbean beach vibes or brush up on your salsa dancing in the colonial cities.

If you’re someone who is more “live to eat”, rather than “eat to live”, the prospect of travelling to Sydney on a backpacker budget might be creating a feeling of unease in your insatiable stomach.

How, you say? Read on, my hungry friend.
Today’s blog comes from lola.photography, she’s a New Zealand photographer travelling the world one beautiful photograph at a time.
Escape the crowds and have a piece of New Zealand all to yourself. Here’s my pick of 8 places in New Zealand just waiting for you to visit…
If you and your mates happen to rent a couple of 4WD’s, you can literally have a stretch of beach as far as the eye can see all to yourselves. There are several 4WD tracks through Woodhill Forest that run along the West Coast of Auckland. A sweet 30 – 45 minute drive from Auckland’s North Shore will see you dune surfing and skinny dipping in the golden sunset without a soul in sight. Then snuggle up under the night sky and watch for satellites and shooting stars (plenty of them!)
