Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog Sparkle Palm! My name is Sarah and I’m based in Melbourne, Australia. Over the years I’ve been blessed to visit some amazing places, but I still have many more to go.  Travel is a huge passion of mine, and over the years many people have asked to see more of my photo’s and share my information, so finally I’ve decided to start a blog.

As a single, young professional, I really enjoy my current job, and as much as I’d love to make a career out of travelling, so far, like for many people, it’s not financially feasible.  As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found my travelling companion options have dwindled, so 99% of the time I travel alone.  In recent years, I have taken to traveling with a mix of organised group tours and time on my own. I know many blogs and people despise group tours, however for me they have proven to be a fantastic option and I will continue using them.  A problem I found however, was there were little reviews or advice for group tours other than the company website or Trip Advisor, so I will provide posts for every group tour I’ve done.

On Sparkle Palm, I will also be posting my experiences at various hotels from around the globe, day trips or experiences I’ve done and information on destinations.  I hope you enjoy my blog and perhaps even in this large world we can cross paths somewhere along our travels!

Happy travelling and reading
