London๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ visited more times than I can count and still just as crazy about this city. Stayed at @theacademyhotel for the first time so I could be close to Soho for the HARRY POTTER PLAY which might be the best thing Iโ€™ve spent (way) too much money on in my life. Muggles donโ€™t make magic cheap eh โšก๏ธโšก๏ธ

Just another Harry Potter superfan still visiting all the filming locations in London โ˜บ๏ธโšก๏ธโœจ check in to @hotelthreadneedles in Central London to visit nearby Leadenhall Market, Borough Market, Tower Bridge and Londonโ€™s pedestrian bridge.

Not even gonna try play it cool: @ashfordcastle is all your childhood dreams of living in a castle come true ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ˜ I first visited this castle back in 2014 as a day visitor (you donโ€™t have to stay to see it, you can also come to check out the grounds!) I remember thinking how amazing it would be to step inside but never could have imagined a Moroccan spa, Private cinema, Billiard room, Dungeon and two Irish hounds who live on property and you can take for a walk in the morning (more like they walk you) ๐Ÿคฏ

Caught in a dream โœจ @ashfordcastle is hands down my most favourite castle I have lived in (lol that sentence. Like Iโ€™ve lived in a castle before. I havenโ€™t.)

What movie do you watch when youโ€™re staying in a castle and they have a private cinema? THE PRINCESS DIARIES OF COURSE ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘ oh and thereโ€™s popcorn. And a butler just brought me Coke Zero. Did I mention the pick n mix? @ashfordcastle @weill.away

A little solo journey to the rugged coast of Ireland ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‚ the past year has been a reminder to make time for myself no matter how โ€œbusyโ€ I am or how many people โ€œneedโ€ me, Iโ€™m always going to need myself. The happier you are the happier you can make others and to stop and take time for yourself - wasting time - will never be time wasted ๐ŸŒžโœจ

Driving around Slovenia & I discovered Kranj ๐Ÿ˜โœจ this is just 25 minutes drive from Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia. Five years ago I made the mistake of giving Slovenia just three days in my European itinerary but Iโ€™ve discovered this trip that there is so much more to see! @ifeelslovenia #slovenia #ifeelslovenia

The dreamy little rooftops and church towers of Ljubljana ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ this is the capital of Slovenia and such an underrated city to visit. I first stopped by 5 years ago and only stayed a few hours. I promised myself Iโ€™d come back one day and finally, I did!!

Departure mode โœˆ๏ธ the only routine Iโ€™ve known the past eight years is the single ladies dance. I do love the comforts of home. A familiar pillow... An old friend you havenโ€™t seen in a while.... My favourite coffee shop. But it is eight years later and I still canโ€™t shake the feeling of wanting to explore more. Of wanting to experience more. Maybe itโ€™s time to stop thinking I need to slow down or settle down & see (even for myself) that travelling and having restless feet is a lifestyle too. ๐ŸŒžโœจ thoughts from the @cathaypacific Deck #cathaypacific #movebeyond

My recent trip to Botswana was an eye opener for me. This is one of the most diverse countries to experience a safari and learn more about how this country became one of the biggest success stories in Africa. In 1967 shortly after the country claimed Independence, diamonds were discovered in Botswana. This has led to an incredibly rapid success story for a country that was once one of the poorest in Africa when it gained independence in 1966. Botswana is now considered one of the safest to visit and offers some of the most diverse landscapes for wildlife viewing. My favourite finds so far are the Okavango Delta in wet season and the Kalahari Desert to see the Meerkats. To think so much growth and development came from a mineral is crazy! Did you know that leading diamond producers partnership with the Botswana government now sustains a school system educating on average 452,000 children a year? @realisadiamond #RealisRare #TotalClarity #sponsored

Exploring old places is good for an old soul ๐ŸŒžโœจ These past few adventures have really been some of the best. I made a promise to myself early in the year to only make meaningful decisions in the way and where I travel. I nearly said no to visiting Montenegro when I was asked to speak at a conference here because travelling half way across the world for two days felt irrational and irresponsible. Instead I chose to say yes and stay for two weeks. Slowing down and tuning in (especially solo) is one of the most soul-searching conversations you can have with yourself โœŒ๐Ÿป #Montenegro #wowtravels

I found peace in realising everything you fall in love with is temporary. Everything your heart loves it can lose. The antidote to holding on too hard is letting go. There is no weakness in walking away if it no longer makes you happy. ๐ŸŒ”โœจ

โ€œYou should settle downโ€ Iโ€™m settled in the idea that life can be exciting, always changing, lived in more than one place.

Smiling on the outside but inside dying over this road trip along a cliff edge ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ #Pakistan was full of crazy moments like this where I thought โ€œIf only my mum could see me nowโ€ (hi mum). Before coming to Pakistan so many people said โ€œbe carefulโ€ or โ€œbe safeโ€ but they werenโ€™t talking about this road, the sheer cliff edge, or the 1950โ€™s Jeep without power steering. They were talking about an outdated perception that Pakistan is unsafe because of the people that reside there. The Pakistani people are in fact welcoming, extremely hospitable and make a gosh darn good chai tea. They want to meet foreigners and show their country. There were times I didnโ€™t feel entirely safe - on the cliff edge of this mountain is one example. But I also felt alive and incredibly free. I think @fearlessandfar summed it up yesterday when he said โ€œI was uncomfortable, but I do not travel for comfort.โ€ ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ

There are 213 million people in Pakistan which was established in 1947 as a global centre for Islam. What makes this country so unique is how it has been shaped over centuries, despite only coming to fruition as an independent state in Central Asia within the last century. The territory now known as Pakistan has been influenced over the centuries by various religions and rulers and today it is not without its problems - but it is undeniably beautiful - and in my experience safe to visit as a foreigner. I was born and raised a Christian. I go to a church instead of a mosque. I have different beliefs to the people of Pakistan. But did that stop me from visiting the country, from making friends (you you you @anushaesays @zee & @zubairtaqi !!!) and from experiencing the culture, cuisine, infectious smiles, hospitable people and yes, the beautiful landscapes made even more unique through centuries of Kashmir, Iranian and Tibetan influences!? By writing this I do not intend to oversimplify religion - it is complicated and complex. But I do think it is important to shine a light on our similarities at a time when the world can be so intent on magnifying our differences. End game: we are all human. We all deserve this time on earth to find our own path and purpose. Mine is exploring and sharing and above all understanding โœจ #Pakistan Zindabad ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ PHOTO CRED: @siyazarrabi
