    Every now and then I like to visit a city that is particularly rich in art and culture and spend a few days soaking up as much of it as I possibly can until my eyes glaze over.

    6 Practical Tips For Hostel Cooking

    As budget travellers, I like to think that we can stretch our hard-earned dollars as far as possible to make our trips last longer. If any luxuries can be cut from our costs, they’ll be unceremoniously disposed of and left for the not-so-frugal people to enjoy. Cooking our own meals is the number one way we cut costs.

    Why Malta is a Must-See Destination for Everyone

    Before I first visited it by chance, nearly ten years ago, I knew little about Malta.  At the time all I was after was a bit of winter sun on a budget and Malta fitted the bill.  Malta certainly has plenty of winter and summer sun (the average yearly temperature is around 23 °C), but as I soon discovered, this tiny …
