They say we're often so focused on the destination that we forget about the all-important journey. And let's face it, when you're travelling to Asia in particular, not only is it a long old haul to get there, but the modes of transport when you're there are generally more interesting than…
Nope, we're not making a political commentary on the state of the economy and we've not been listening to too much Cat Stevens (obviously that's not possible). We're talking about the Urban Dictionary definition (which technically pertains to music… but let's not dwell on that): true gems…
Mozambique is something of an underrated gem. While it may not be the first African destination to spring to mind due to its lack of safari options at present, the coast offers some of the best beaches on the continent and is something of an escapist's dream. So why not close your eyes and…
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did."
Think that eco-living and luxury travel are poles apart? Think again! Environmental concerns are hugely important to the residents of the Maldives, and this tiny island is going all out to preserve its beautiful but fragile marine resources. Off to the Maldives on your honeymoon? Why not…
Between Aunt Marg's stuffy New Year's Eve party and getting stuck in hours of traffic, New Year's Eve is normally a painful ordeal. As a result, all those classic 'Bridget Jones' resolutions seem to go out the window in the early hours of the 1st January. We, at Original Travel, think that…
Thrilling adventures don't have to stop as soon as the kids arrive. At Original Travel we pride ourselves on being able to make even the most action packed holiday totally family friendly. After all, sometimes it's not only the children who can't sit still for five minutes.
The prospect of travelling to Slovenia was no small feat for a 4ft 11 solo traveller such as myself… what could I eat there (the most important question in any given scenario)? Do they even have proper shops? Will they understand me? Will I be safe? My dad isn't Liam Neeson, after all. What…
Talk of Christmas already?!? Before you think we've gone all Argos on you, the majority of great festive season holiday spots do get booked up well in advance and as travel guardian angels we naturally only want the best for you. So, if the thought of doing one of Nigella's coke soaked hams…
The holiday bucket list. Everyone's got one. And making sure you get every last destination and experience ticked off before kicking said bucket is undoubtedly (understatement alert) a challenge. But that's what your travel guardian angels are here for (hint: that's us) and we're going to…
This past weekend nearly 200,000 revellers descended on a field in Somerset, flowers in hair, wellies on feet and tents in tow. There was mud, there was body paint, there was tie-dye and, oh yes, a spot of music too. You guessed it - Glastonbury. And once we'd heartily discussed (read: all…
I first visited Tanzania 13 years ago and it's fair to say the country has upped its luxury safari lodge game in the intervening years. While the term 'luxury' can be defined in myriad ways, whether you have a penchant for opulent gold taps and marble bathrooms or go batty for small,…
