Kevin: Nam Hai Beach, Vietnam

I discovered my favourite resort in Asia and cant wait to go back. The Four Seasons Nam Hai in Vietnam offers three extraordinary sites from a private kilometre-long stretch of one of Forbes’ “best beaches in the world.“ It was spectacular.



Jake: Sabah, Borneo
After searching high and low, I finally found the best sunrise imaginable in Sabah, Borneo. The Kinabatangan River has wildlife literally jumping out at you with a vast array of monkeys and orangutans!



Helena: Mljet, Croatia
It is said a picture paints a thousand words, but this scene left me speechless. Breathtaking setting  on the island of Mljet in Croatia, a stop on a sailing adventure from Split to Dubrovnik.



Erin: Tokyo, Japan
I loved my short Tokyo stopover, especially because everywhere I went including any of the restaurants were very toddler friendly. I would love to back for at least 4 nights and explore more.



Brooke: Edinburgh, Scotland
It would have to be Edinburgh Scotland! Apart from the on and off rain it is a beautiful city rich with history. This is also where the birthplace of Harry Potter began by J. K. Rowling having a coffee at the now famous Elephant House. Walking through the graveyard and finding the characters names of the Harry Potter books was cool and eerie. I would also recommend doing a tour of the Scottish Highlands with lots of history and castles which I enjoyed.


Tom: Queenstown, New Zealand
Loved my time in New Zealand, specifically Queenstown.  You can’t beat the South Island for stunning scenery and the amount of adventure activities on offer,  with Mountain Biking being one of them!
