  • Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland, from its position on the Castle Rock. Archaeologists have established human occupation of the rock since at least the Iron Age (2nd century AD), although the nature of the early settlement is unclear. There has been a royal castle on the rock since at least the reign of David I in the 12th century, and the site continued to be a royal residence until 1633. From the 15th century the castle's residential role declined, and by the 17th century it was principally used as military barracks with a large garrison. Its importance as a part of Scotland's national heritage was recognised increasingly from the early 19th century onwards, and various restoration programmes have been carried out over the past century and a half. As one of the most important strongholds in the Kingdom of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle was involved in many historical conflicts from the Wars of Scottish Independence in the 14th century to the Jacobite rising of 1745. Research undertaken in 2014 identified 26 sieges in its 1100-year-old history, giving it a claim to having been "the most besieged place in Great Britain and one of the most attacked in the world".

  • We love remote and off the beaten track places. We’ve been travelling several times to North Korea in the last 10 years. We’ve booked again a ticket to Pyongyang to see the out-of-this-world Mass Games in North Korea. This time we are not traveling alone but invited a very select group of travellers to join us to witness this Cirque du Soleil on steroids event. We have been a bit quiet on Instagram since we are working on several projects and still traveling the world like Arctic Terns so it’s great you can follow us again during this memorable trip to the DPRK. This is the first Remote Experiences trip we organise and many more will follow. Once a year we will travel to the most remote and unknown parts on this planet and you can join us next time, who knows? Follow or stories live from North Korea next week. #remoteplaces #northkorea #dprk

  • Yesterday was a full day of cruising around historic Stone Town, a UNESCO world-heritage site. I’ve always had a thing for UNESCO sites and always try to make a point to visit one whenever I travel. Ben and I are still quite jet lagged but we’re both looking forward to recovering on the famous beaches of Zanzibar. 😎

  • Things to do, eat and drink in Cartagena- We definitely enjoyed our time in this city, but as usual for me in these tourist packed places a few days is most certainly enough. * The Walled City - Where we stayed at Makako hostel (good value for money but nothing special). This area is beautiful, seriously gorgeous, old Colonial style housing brightly painted and well kept. If your in Cartagena, taking a leisurely stroll around this area undoubtedly has to top your list of priorities. * Gelateria Tramonti - While in the Walled City make sure to stop here for the chocolate vegan sorbet, I know, I know, the idea of chocolate sorbet really didn’t appeal to me the first time I had it in London either but I promise you it’s incredible. Thick, rich, creamy, intensely chocolatey and oh my god as I write this I want one again now so badly! * Catch a sunset over the ocean from the wall - A popular way to enjoy a cold beer or ice-cream, join the many tourists and a few local couples in this romantic spot, I just hope you get to see some good colours in the sky as sadly both times we were there is was pretty much just grey...damn the rainy season. * Take the 2 hour bus ride to Playa Blanca - A great way to escape the hectic city centre and enjoy a stunning beach breather. With crystal clear turquoise waters, white sands and gorgeous coral reefs, this is the perfect place to unwind while taking a dip, soaking up the sun with a cocktail in hand or try your hand at snorkelling (from as little as $2.50 per hour from Pacho Lay). * Castillo San Felipe de Barajas - 25,000 COP/$8.30 entrance fee, this fort is well worth a morning or afternoon of your time, boasting great views over the city, a narrow but fun set of tunnels to explore and a visit here is a great way to learn a little more about the cities past. There are limited signs in English however, so for more info download their free app for a guided English tour. * Finally... if you’re in the city over the weekend and fancy a strong cheap cocktail, lookout for the street stalls/ up-cycled shopping trolleys around the City Gate for yummy cheap Micheladas and cuba libres, just be warned they make them strong here!
