Glossy destinations & photos without glossing over the detail
I started this blog as a result of my personal experiences when researching new destinations. Quite simply – I wanted more – more information, more photos, more detail.
I have well and truly been bitten by the travel bug; I eat, sleep and think about travel all day long. I read travel books (luckily, I work part-time for Marco Polo Guides, so I get free guidebooks!) I spend hours poring over Instagram pictures and reading blogs. But it’s never enough.
When planning my adventures, I was often finding myself with the same problem: that I couldn’t find enough detailed information. Yes, I could find the Top 10 European cities to visit, or the Top Things to do on Malta… but what then? Which area should I stay in? Where are the best local bars and restaurants? What’s the best way to get around? How do I get to the key sights? How much is it all going to cost me?
I love reading travel blogs but I find that many gloss over the detail. I was left wanting more.
Sound like you? Well, then you’ve come to the right place!
My goal is to provide you with as much detail about a destination as is humanly possible!
When I go on a trip, I’ll tell you exactly where I/we stayed (more on the husband later…) how much it cost, where we ate and drank, what areas we explored, which we didn’t, the things that were worth doing and seeing and which weren’t, how we got there, whether we’d return and any other details I can possibly think of.
Most travel bloggers give you the highlights – I want to give you everything in vivid detail – to let you Travel in Technicolour.
I hope you enjoy the journey.
Hayley is English (hence she spells technicolour the correct way ;-)) 33 years old and a passionate traveller, writer and keen amateur photographer. She likes walking. Lots and lots of walking. And wine.
Sander is a Dutchman, 43, whose main hobbies are listening to music (he owns one of the most impressive CD collections you’ve probably ever seen) ping pong (people who call it table tennis actually take it seriously) and telling bad jokes (he doesn’t think so).
We live just outside of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
When not planning our next travel adventures we can mostly be found binge-watching MasterChef, trying new recipes, eating out (bit of a theme here…) or listening to our cat whine about not getting enough attention.
