Yes, Lake Louise really is that stunning.

The lobby at the Fairmont Chateau in Lake Louise stopped me in my tracks, well it wasn’t the lobby so much as the view through the window.

Five things to do in Vancouver

Let’s face it; Vancouver is a lovely city. There is so much to see and do in the city centre, all within a short walk or each other. The city centre is beautiful. It’s clean, modern, interesting… but don’t just stick to the city centre – some of the really interesting parts of Vancouver are a short bus ride away.

Five awesome things to do in Mexico

Dance in a city square

You’ve got to love a city square that encourages dancing. And not just any dancing - salsa dancing! We turned up in Puebla, went for a walk and by early Sunday afternoon a band had set up and dozens of people were moving to the sounds. 

You might want to take a dance class first, but really dancing is all about just getting in there and having fun. 

And if you don’t have a partner or really can’t dance, just enjoy the free entertainment.

From rhino beetles to piranhas in the Amazon Jungle

The Amazon … the very word just oozes mystique, adventure and well, wildlife! And so I find myself, sitting in a bird hide off the Tambopata River in the Amazon Jungle. We’re on the edges, I think, not in the heart of the jungle so I’m confident I’m not going to step on a python or come face to face with a jaguar. Though there is a part of me that is forever on the lookout…

10 Tips for Travelling Solo

According to the 2011 Australian Household census about 1.3 million Australians aged between 40 and 69 live alone.

That’s a lot of potential solo Aussie travellers. Travelling on your own can be daunting. Who will you talk to about the sites you’ve seen? Who will you eat breakfast or dinner with? And you’ll have to work everything out on your own – from reading local maps to working out currency conversions.

Five, ok six, towns to visit in Tuscany

We’ve all seen those images of Tuscany – you know the ones, emerald green mountains, mist rolling across the vineyards and medieval walled cities nestled into the countryside. And you’ve thought to yourself, I must go there.

But where exactly? Tuscany is a sprawling region that spreads across Italy. There is so much to see from the coastal towns to quant vineyards and world-renowned artwork like Michelangelo’s David.

Florence is a must-see on any trip to Tuscany but here are five, ok six (I couldn’t narrow it down any further!) towns also worth a look.

The Masai Mara – a wildlife wonderland

It's fair to say I love wildlife photography. So you can imagine how excited I was to get the opportunity to host a tour to Kenya and Uganda with Twos a Crowd. Not only host, but host as a photographer. Let's just say I didn’t take any convincing.

Some of our favourite travel experiences

Our tour hosts are a lucky bunch of people, they get to travel the world seeing some of the most amazing sites all while hanging out with you guys - our awesome Two’s A Crowd guests!

From traversing the canals of France, to safaris in Africa, cruises through Alaska and scooter trips through Tuscany, last year we got to see it all, so we thought we’d ask our tour hosts what were their favourite moments on tour in 2016.

It was tough to drag just one moment out of them – afterall they get to meet such interesting people, those travelling on tour and those they meet along the way, and see such awe-inspiring sites everywhere they go – but one moment stood out above all…
