When I saw that the subject for the next round of Travel Photo Roulette was ‘Serendipity’ I felt a bit stumped. Did I have a photo that fitted this theme?

This round, as always, is being hosted by the winner of the previous round, in this case James from Fly, Icarus, Fly. Visit his site for all the details of how to enter this travel bloggers’ competition. The closing date is 21st January.

So what did I come up with…


In Sharm el Sheikh we were told that they had very few cloudy night skies. We were very unlucky that it was cloudy on the night that we went star-gazing but without the clouds we would never have seen this glorious sunset.

The day I was the first person to realise that the gates to the park weren’t locked so I could photograph it before anyone made any footprints in the snow.

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this picture that I had taken through the window of a boat in the rain producing an interesting but unexpected effect

There were more than I thought! And now I stumped again… which one to choose?

Travel Planning Resources

Travel clothes for women

Check out my guide to all my favourite travel clothes for women.

Book your hotel

Agoda is my preferred hotel search engine. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.

Rent a car

Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

Book an experience

When I’m travelling solo, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.

Protect yourself and your trip

Don’t forget travel insurance! Protect yourself from possible injury, theft, and many other unexpected mishaps while abroad. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 140 countries. For UK residence, Alianz Assistance offers insurance for backpackers, as well as annual multi-trip cover and single-trip cover starting from £3.36.
