This week’s travel snap is also my entry for Round 46 of Travel Photo Roulette
with the theme of ‘Smile’.

If you’d like to enter you’ll find all the details and all the entries on the website 2Away
who are the hosts for this round.

I took this photo while visiting a school in The Gambia.
We were there making a short film about tourism helping local people.

Here’s a link to the film called ‘Nyodema’ which means ‘helping each other’ in Mandinka (and it’s also the name of community group that I’m involved with that helps schools in The Gambia). In this film you’ll see the school where this photo was taken as well as an interview with your’s truly which they sprung on me out of the blue!

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.
