I just like doing yoga poses in fancy locations, can't help it. On this day a few of us walked down to the beach to see the sunrise, but we arrived too late. We sat around anyway, admiring the view. It was the last day of a week in Costa Rica, definitely one of the most lush places I've ever been. #costarica #beachlife #beautifulbeaches #yoga #beachyoga #puntarenas
All natural! Loved visiting these hot springs. We had a nice leisurely bathe before hitting the swim up bar for cocktails. Unfortunately this was October, not now. Right now I'm in Portsmouth. BUT I am going to Hamburg tomorrow - yay! #costarica #visitcostarica #tabacon #tabaconhotsprings #hotsprings
I was sorting out my photos from Costa Rica this weekend, finally. When I was there I made some daily vlogs (check out my YouTube) but I haven't actually written that much about it. I LoVED Costa Rica, it was somewhere that had been on my wanna go list for a long time. It was every bit as lush as you'd imagine, and there were animals everywhere. Saw toucans, sloths, raccoons and of course, turtles! More on that later though - here's a beautiful waterfall we hiked to first... #costarica #visitcostarica #waterfall
If I had to pick my favourite place in Croatia, it'd definitely be Rovinj. Such a cool little place to spend a weekend and only a few hours from the UK. I went last year for my birthday and basically ate non stop from arrival. There's a guide on my blog to all the restaurants in you need. Otherwise, just wanted to share this pic of the Old Town. #rovinj #croatia #colourfulhouses
Totally lost my Instagram mojo. Feel like I don't know what to post on here anymore seeing as I've been at home in Southsea for the last few weeks. I've just found this happy photo of me on Croatia last year though, and felt the need to share it. That was a fun day. I was on a @medsailors trip and hired a soft top white jeep for the day. Seemed like a perfectly normal thing to do back then - now I'm like 'ooo time of yer life'. #medsailors #croatia #lovinglife #travelblogger #travel
Yeah, what?
There's a black market in China for rhino horns. Legend has it that when you grind them up and consume they act as a natural viagra. It's bullshit. Still though, poaching goes on and the poachers get thousands for a horn. Rhino owners have to go to all kinds of extremes to save their animals, including removing them themselves. If this goes on 🦏s will be extinct. #savetherhinos #rhino #loverhinos #southafricaπŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦ #lovesouthafrica #plettenberg
Errmmmm excuse me, have you ever had tiramisu fudge? Seriously one of the tastiest, creamiest, most delicious things I've ever put in my mouth. Serious regrets at not buying a whole load to bring home from the @bramonwineestate. And don't worry I had wine before the coffee. Another recommended stop in Knysna 😁. #bramonwineestate #fudge #coffee #bestfood #fudgelover
Yay Safari! We've been to the Plettenberg Game Reserve to see lions, giraffe, hippos, springbok and elephants. So cool. More pics of the animals on my Insta stories - can't believe how close we got. I just wanted to tell you that my new favourite orange sandals are from @fatface and they have a competition on right now to win a perfect summer worth over Β£10,000 - the prizes are amazing!

Why are meerkats so cute and funny? There's problem with people thinking they're good for pets in South Africa, when they're actually super territorial and will not be good to your guests. Good job the Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre can provide a home for them. We went and hung out with them yesterday 😍. #meerkat #tenikwa #southafrica #visitknysna #tenikwawildlife #plettenbergv
I'm settling into Knysna. In the last fortnight they've suffered devastating forest fires here, which have made thousands homeless. The area is known for epic forests but they've been burned down, houses burnt to the ground and cars burned out. It's amazing how positive the locals are being though, shown on social media with the #knysnarises hashtag. It really is a beautiful part of the world, still. This is known as Million Dollar View and is up in the White Location township we toured today - check out my Insta Stories. We met local entrepreneurs and saw how thousands of people live here in the RDP (like council) houses. #southafrica #lovesouthafrica #knysna #milliondollarview
I'm on my way to Heathrow! Last circa 2013 pic of South Africa before I get some new ones tomorrow. I have a short list of places I REALLY want to revisit, and SA rides high, so I'm very excited. This pic is from the Bo-Kaap area in Cape Town. I went for one of those supper club things and got to try the local food. Ready for more... #capetown #bokaap #LoveSouthAfrica #colourfulhouses #blueskies #streetscenes
