I have been doing a lot of research recently on other folks travel blogs, social media networks and the Internet as a whole, and it truly amazes me how some people are able to travel for a living and venture wherever they like pretty much whenever they like.

If we polled 100 people about what the most landmark in Sydney (or even Australia), you would be...

England has miles of beautiful coastline and the Fylde Coast in North West England, which stretches from Lytham St. Annes all the way to Fleetwood, is certainly no different. With this being so close to my home town of Ramsbottom, I have been fortunate enough to visit this part of the country of several occasions in the past but...
