LiveShareTravel, a new travel and lifestyle magazine that keeps it sociable

Hold the travel blog – there’s work to be done!

December 19th, 2010 in General by Sarah Lee 1

Writing a travel blog can be something of a labour of love. But it’s all worthwhile when you know people are reading your posts and actively engaged in what you’re writing. However sometimes labour of another variety can put paid to the labour you love. Earlier this year I embarked on a new work project. LiveShareTravel is an online travel and lifestyle magazine that takes a different approach to sharing travel ideas and inspirational features.

I love Benicassim!

July 20th, 2010 in European travel by Sarah Lee 8

This week we were at the Benicassim music festival in Spain, seeing a whole host of great performers including The Prodigy, Kasabian, PIL, The Specials, Ray Davies, Peter Hook, Dizzee Rascal, Gorillaz, Ellie Goulding, Ian Brown, Vampire Weekend, Leftfield, Calvin Harris, Goldfrapp, Ash and The Klaxons. We don’t usually go to festivals, so we asked the Benicassim crowd what they thought of it all…

Five unmissable South African attractions

July 11th, 2010 in African travel by Terry Lee 2

After Spain and the Netherlands battled it out to be World Cup champions (well done Spain!!) we’re reflecting on what a brilliant competition South Africa has put on. In honour of this incredible country we give you five of our favourite South African attractions. It’s difficult to choose just five so we’ve gone for something slightly more unusual than the likes of Table Mountain and Robben Island (though both of these are pretty good as well of course).

Searching for a needle in a haystack? Or travel reviews from people just like you?

Just how useful are travel reviews?

July 6th, 2010 in Cruising by Sarah Lee 12

I recently had the chance to sample Norwegian Cruise Lines’ latest ship Epic. I’ve just been reading through a fairly mixed bag of reviews of the ship – some saying it couldn’t be better, others quoting specific bad experiences and personal niggles. It’s made me wonder: how useful are travel reviews and do they say more about us than the hotel/ship/airline we’ve reviewed?

A little book full of travel ideas

Cool destinations for itchy feet

January 28th, 2010 in General by Sarah Lee 0

It happens every year. Travel sections, magazines and websites give you their run-down of the places you must visit now. In fact you don’t even have to wait for the end/start of the year to see these types of stories floating around – from why Siberia is suddenly the hottest place this side of the […]

Don't let the bad times roll

November 26th, 2009 in General by Sarah Lee 1

As the credit crunch and subsequent recession caused many of us to tighten our belts we’re all looking towards 2010 with a certain optimism. If we’re honest, we hope for a return to our pre-recession existence. For us travellers (those that don’t own a backpack and never will) that means luxuriating on lucious breaks or […]

Make the most of the great travel blogging world

It's a wonderful travel world

November 18th, 2009 in General by Sarah Lee 2

I’m definitely feeling the love. The love of a global community. But don’t fear I’m not about to roll out a choir of dewy-eyed children and break into strains of Heal the World. Instead I’m writing this post in celebration of a fantastic community of passionate, outgoing, worldly, knowledgable and incredible people in the online […]

Blogging all over the world

November 17th, 2009 in General by Sarah Lee 3

So here I go – taking my first blogging steps. Having enjoyed the travel stories of fellow bloggers and taken inspiration from them, I plan to share my travel highs and lows – hopefully mostly highs. I’m not going to tell you what I had for breakfast on my last trip – unless it’s particularly […]
