Just about anyone who’s had Paris on their bucket list has heard of the Jardin des Tuilleries, the landmark gardens that run alongside the Seine between Le Musée du Louvre and the Place de la Concorde. A perhaps lesser-known (unless you’re familiar with all things Paris), but equally splendid garden, is the Jardin du Luxembourg. A must-see in Paris, especially for solo female travellers who love visiting gardens, people watching or both.
If you’re a new solo female traveller, you’ll likely want to start your solo travels in one of the safest and most peaceful countries in the world. Each year the Global Peace Index (GPI) ranks 163 countries around the world using 23 qualitative and quantitative criteria to measure how peaceful, and thus how safe they are. In this post I share the 20 most peaceful countries in the world according to the GPI 2022 report.
In my last post, I shared my 4 favourite Hawaii beaches. In this post, I share 8 must-do experiences in Hawaii, 2 from each island visited on an inter-island Hawaii cruise: Oahu, Maui, Hawaii Island and Kauai. I have enjoyed 6 of these experiences, but, since I have yet to visit Hawaii Island, 2 are still on my bucket list.
The Hawaii Islands have hundreds of breathtaking beaches. They range from white sand to black with every shade of yellow in between. You’ll even find red sand and green sand beaches. Although I’ve obviously not visited every Hawaii beach (wouldn’t that be amazing), it’s still hard to choose a favourite from the ones I have. But I’ve managed to narrow it down to 4 off-the-beaten path Hawaii beaches, one on each island that I’ve visited.
If you’re planning a Purposeful Safari Adventure with Wilderness Safaris, here are 7 tips to help you pack for your trip. I also share a handy dandy packing list.
Now that we’re getting back to “normal,” it’s time to stop dreaming about your bucket list trip, and time to start planning. If you’ve been dreaming of a safari adventure in Southern Africa, you’ve probably changed your thinking on how you’d like to travel. Perhaps you’re considering how you can make your experience more meaningful. Staying at safari camps that serve a purpose is a great way to ensure you leave a positive impact at the destination, not a negative one.
