I’m a big fan of luxury experiences and getaways, but I don’t always like paying a tonne of money to have an incredible experience. That’s part of the reason why I love to mix up my travel destinations and stay in some expensive places, as well as some cheaper ones, so that I can get more for my money and […]
If you follow me on social media (I’d love to see you on Twitter and Facebook), then you may have noticed things were quiet over there for a week or so recently. Here’s why…
A few weeks ago my beloved aunt died suddenly and entirely unexpectedly. She’d been in hospital for a long awaited operation to deal with two aneurysms and […]
When you think of great locations for stargazing around the world Scotland probably isn’t somewhere that immediately springs to mind. I’ve lived in Scotland all my life and I’m a little ashamed to admit I didn’t realise there are some parts of the country that have absolutely perfect conditions for admiring the stars in the night sky.
For my stargazing in […]
‘How to Cancel a Hotel Reservation’ isn’t exactly the sexiest of blog titles, but it *is* useful and something I’ve had to do a fair few times myself.
My partner Thomas has a pretty unpredictable job that can take him all over the world at very short notice so quite often we have to cancel plans and bookings if something changes […]
1. Stay in a castle
There are believed to have been more than 3,000 castles in Scotland at one point and many still remain throughout the country. Many simply disappeared over time, others have become crumbling ruins, and many have been maintained and turned into glamorous hotels! Pretend you’re a princess for the night and book into one that you love!
2. Go […]
I get a lot of emails, Tweets and Facebook messages from readers who want to know where to find cheap travel deals. They want to know what websites and tools I use to seek out the deals that are great value for money, whilst still being great travel experiences.
I don’t have any major secrets for finding the best travel deals. […]
I visited Marbella at the end of last month and was lucky enough to celebrate turning 26 in the sunshine there.
Marbella is a lovely coastal resort town in southern Spain, around 45 minutes drive from Malaga airport. It is known as a rather glamorous holiday destination and has dozens of upmarket hotels, as well as some stylish and still budget […]
Visiting India is exciting, overwhelming and a truly wonderful experience. Even though my trip there was a couple of years ago now, it’s a place I think of often and go between thoughts of how much I loved and and how much I loathed it within moments. People usually say that everyone either loves or hates India, but I went […]
Where I’ve been
What a fun and busy month March has been!
The first half of the month was filled with work, client meetings and plenty of lovely dinners and catch ups with family and friends.
The middle of the month is where it all started to get good! Thomas FINALLY came home after a three month stint working in Abu Dhabi. When […]
I’m a pretty lucky girl as Thomas whisked me off to Marbella in southern Spain last week to celebrate my 26th birthday! Celebrating my birthday away from home has become something of a little tradition and this was the third birthday I’ve enjoyed in a different place. So much more fun than staying home!
We were in Marbella for four nights […]
