Crucemundo in English is “crossing the world”, and how fitting given Europe’s latest cruise line now operate routes covering the Adriatic, the Danube, the Rhine, the Volga, beautiful Lake Baikal and even the great Nile river.

Go zorbing in Rotorua; OGO review and pricing

Ball rolling is a simple idea. A person or persons get inside a huge ball, like being inside spherical bubble wrap, the ball is half-filled with some water, and then rolled down a hill. Sounds fun to me. Sometimes referred to as zorbing, the best place to zorb in Rotorua is OGO. I reviewed OGO to get you all the information you need.

My trav-hell to the Maldives

Sometimes travel tests your patience. The ones that keep up with the More Passport Stamps Twitter account will know that I am currently in the Maldives (alright for some). However, often you have to go through hell to get to heaven. My original plan was to get a lift to Birmingham Airport, fly with Emirates to Maldives (via Dubai) then get a seaplane to Meedhupparu, my first Maldivian destination.

What is in Benidorm besides excessive drinking?

When travelling to Spain, most people don’t opt for Benidorm. Most will choose somewhere like Barcelona or Santander.  Benidorm has a reputation for being a mini-Britain, and some even see it as the homeland of smut and cheap alcohol. It had never been on my list, but it was my friends’ birthday and we go where the birthday boy says. My job was to find out if there is more to Benidorm than being a warmer version of Skegness.
