20 Things I Love About Glasgow

Posted on by Emma Gray in Scotland, Travel Tales | Leave a comment

I might be a little biased since it’s the nearest city to my countryside village home here in Scotland but I believe Glasgow is a truly underrated city. It’s all too often left forgotten and in the shadow of it’s prettier neighbour, Edinburgh, and I think people who don’t visit Glasgow are truly missing out. There’s so much to love about Glasgow and after 24 years living just outside the city I thought I’d share my favourites with you…

What Are Cruises Really Like?

Posted on by Emma Gray in Cruising | Leave a comment

I’m a fan of cruises and I’ll happily admit that. I know there are people out there who absolutely hate cruises and that’s fine, cruising isn’t for everyone. I’ve been lucky enough to have embarked upon 18 different cruises so far so it’s safe to say I know a lot about the subject of cruising. One thing I repeatedly find when I tell people that I love cruising is a barrage of questions about what cruises are actually like. Many …

I also think that autumn is the perfect time to …

How to Alleviate Wanderlust Without Travelling

Posted on by Emma Gray in Travel Tales | 5 Comments

This past weekend has been a little bit of a disappointment. I was supposed to be exploring a new city for me, Madrid, yet I ended up staying at home. Why? Well, I was meant to be travelling with my Mum on one of our regular little trips we like to take together. Unfortunately we had to cancel due to my poor Mum being a bit under the weather and not fit to travel (everyone wish Mummy Travel Tales a …
