Like many members of the travel blogging community I found myself in Rotterdam in the Netherlands last weekend for the Traverse 2018 conference. Although I had made almost no plans about what to see prior to my trip I spotted a sign about the Kinderdijk Windmills down by the waterfront and decided to try and fit in a visit on my last morning in the city.
If you are planning a trip to Sri Lanka Sigiriya Rock is bound to be high on your itinerary… and rightly so! This UNESCO world heritage site is truly spectacular and one of the most iconic places in all of Sri Lanka. The good news is that although the climb to the top might look a little intimidating it’s actually not too bad and well worth what awaits you at the end! If you’re not yet convinced or a little hesitant then let me convince you…
I first came across the Pulpit Rock hike when I was researching for a trip I took around Norway back in August 2015. I immediately knew I wanted to do this walk and experience the amazing view over the Lysefjord for myself but there was no way we could figure out how to fit it into our two week itinerary as it would involve a specific trip to Stavanger, which was a little too far from Bergen to justify taking the time for. Instead I vowed to come back and tackle it someday in the not too distant future.
So if you follow me on social media you’ll know that this time last month I was about to embark on a two long trip travelling around some of the highlights of Sri Lanka. During the whirlwind trip I visited a bunch of different places, staying only 1 or 2 nights in most areas, and soon discovered that there are many different places to suit all kinds of travellers no matter where your interest lies.
For those of you who have been following the blog a little while you’ll know that I went to Norway back in 2015 and part of that trip included travelling from Bergen up through the fjords to Tromso. Since then the Norweigan fjords have remained one of the most spectacular places I’ve ever visited and in the spirit of celebrating the fact that I will be returning to get a glimpse of them in April (more on that later) I wanted to share a little bit about how to best experience this magical area of the world and capture it on camera.
If you’re passionate about photography then this one is definitely for you, but even if you’re just interested in making your friends jealous with your holiday snaps when you get home or for some reason need convincing to book a trip to one of the most stunning destinations in Europe then read on…
