Food. It's a huge part of why we travel. Trying new things, sharing meals with locals, taking cooking classes and trying to recreate the flavours at home - it's all part of the fun. Some of us are adventurous eaters, and for some our food vocabulary is full.

Travel and airports. They're intrinsically linked. Love 'em or hate 'em, there's simply no avoiding 'em. There's loads of splashy, flashy ones that make you so releaxed you'll forget about the 7-hour wait that seemed like a good idea when you were booking cheap flights. But today we're going to look at some of the weird and wonderful airports that provide a story before you've even landed.

Everybody’s talking about it, everybody’s excited about it, everyone’s watching it…so we’re jumping on the Olympics bandwagon too! What’s not to love?

Last year, my husband and I spent 5 weeks travelling through China. The highlight you ask? Well, while the Wall blew my mind and Jiuzhaigou National Park made my eyes water it was so gosh darn pretty and the rice fields in Dazhai gave a whole new meaning to serenity, I have to say it was something else that made me all gooey for China. That would be the food.

Think of Africa and immediately the Big Five come to mind. But Asia has her own Asiatic lions, rhinos, leopards, elephants and wild buffalo, allowing a different cast of mega-fauna stars play the lead.

No need to weigh down your backpack with chunky Chinese dictionaries and guide books anymore. All the info you need for your travel in China can be at your finger tips… and in your pocket for less than $20.

To celebrate International Women's Day today we've asked the ladies in the Gecko's Head Office to tell us about their adventure travels and their ultimate girls holiday.
This year's theme is Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures and we think travel is the perfect way to do this - who doesn't feel inspired for the future when they are discovering new destinations? And what better way is there to connect with your friends than to travel together? Happy travels ladies!
