‘Enchanting‘, ‘wonderful‘, ‘unique‘ – these are just some of the many words I’d heard used to describe the Cinque Terre before my visit there. After reading countless articles describing the incredible beauty of the five villages that make up the Cinque Terre – which means five lands in Italian – I was unsurprisingly eager to visit the area. I’d looked […]
I’ve just returned from spending a lovely five days in the Liguria region in the north west of Italy.
The trip was a celebration of my dad’s 60th birthday and my parents, brother and his girlfriend, Thomas and I all had a fabulous time. The weather was perfect, the sun was shining, the location is simply stunning, the food was delicious […]
Where I’ve Been
Phew! September has been a busy month and I’ve loved every minute of it.
I enjoyed a wonderful trip to St Andrews with Thomas in the middle of the month and then headed to the Liguria region in the north west of Italy at the end of the month. As I write this I’ve been back in Scotland for […]
I’m writing this article in advance, and when it goes live I’ll be dragging my butt out of bed to get on two flights to Italy for a long weekend. YAY!
Since I’m busy exploring somewhere new, I’m delighted to be able to share a great giveaway with all of you and I thought I’d leave you all with some great […]
Having stayed at home in Scotland for the past few months I’ve been suffering a serious case of itchy feet recently. Although I’ve travelled loads throughout Scotland and England and visited plenty of new places and old favourites in the last few months I absolutely can’t wait to get out of the country again for a little while.
On Friday morning […]
I’ve been lucky enough to stay in many lovely hotels around the world, many of them thanks to this blog. This past weekend I stayed at one of the best ones yet – the Old Course Hotel in beautiful St Andrews, Scotland.
Thomas and I had a busy weekend ahead celebrating at a 2 year old’s birthday party, a 50th birthday […]
Usually I’m the type of blogger who has posts scheduled weeks, sometimes months in advance. I’m a pretty hyper organised person and this flows over into my business and blogging life.
Today, I didn’t have a post scheduled to go live as I do every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, like clockwork.
Sure, it’s not the end of the world and probably most […]
Italy is one of my absolute favourite European countries and it’s somewhere I always love returning to. I’m actually heading to Italy at the end of next week, so I’m incredibly excited and can’t wait to be back there.
It wouldn’t be right to write a list about reasons to visit Italy and not include the food. Italian food is […]
I’ve got a confession to make.
I haven’t been out of the country since May.
What a terrible travel blogger I am!
Although I’ve taken numerous trips within the UK (like staying in the UK’s most haunted hotel and heading to the beach), I haven’t actually gotten on a plane and flown anywhere since my trip to Portugal in May.
A huge part of […]
When travelling and being busy exploring new places it’s all too easy to fall into bed at the end of the day with your make up still on and fall asleep. It’s easy to think YOLO and not bother cleansing your skin in the morning or to get sunburnt in warmer climes. There’s loads of things we’re all guilty of […]
