Last year I joined an adaptive ski trip in Colorado and this year I ended up in Switzerland with a couple of wheelie mates. The Jubilee Sailing Trust stretched their land legs to team up with The Ski Company for there first (hopefully) annual disability ski week.
Back in August last year EasyJet were having a group booking sale to Iceland – £45 each return from London to Reykjavik. So we gathered a few of us together and soon had a group of six ready to go.
We chose to go at the end of January so we had a chance to see the Northern Lights and also because it coincided with my birthday on the 26th.
One of my school friends, Phil, moved to Warsaw about three years ago to continue his studies to become a doctor. I finally got around to booking to go see him this month and my mate Dan decided to come along too.
One of my best friends has just got a transfer through work from her Melbourne office to their office in Amsterdam! This means that after 4 years we finally got to catch up!
Eating out can be a bit of a chore when you have allergies or intolerances.
Luckily for me, their are multiple places to choose from in London that cater for gluten free – and actually understand the dangers of cross contamination (and the fact that boiling water doesn’t kill off gluten!)
There are a few 100% completely gluten free restaurants and cafes dotted around including:
Exploring Egypt with Travel Talk Tours
Back in February my housemate/best friend Cara went to a Travel Talk expo in South West London where we ended up booking a 9 day trip to Egypt. We chose to go with the Felucca Odyssey tour and added an extra nights accommodation at the end of the trip to recover.
The cheapest flights we could find was with Austrian Airlines, which connected Heathrow to Cairo via Vienna and return.
After some late night packing on the Friday we were up and at the airport by 4.00 – rookie mistake as check in didn’t open till 4.30am and security not till 5.
After about 7 hours in transit, we reached Cairo Airport. Travel Talk supply pre and post airport transfers, so our ‘collector’ gathered us round and took our payments before going and securing us tourist visas, then it was about 30-40 minutes to the hotel.
