Why is it So Hard to Choose Where to Travel?

By |June 18th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

At the moment I have very few upcoming trips planned. Usually, I like to have lots of trips booked to give me plenty to be excited about and look forward to. But, at the moment, that’s not the case. Why I hear you ask? Well, recently I’ve found myself really struggling to choose where to travel next.

This is a new […]

A Two-Day Itinerary for Thurso and the Far North of Scotland

By |June 14th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|0 Comments

Despite several trips abroad, one of my most favourite trips of last year was spent exploring the north of Scotland. I enjoyed a week travelling around the northernmost tip of the country and was blown away by its beauty.

The weather during my time in this area was incredible, which I’m sure definitely contributed to my enjoyment, but I think it’s […]

I graduated from university six whole years ago. In some ways it feels like much longer than that and in others it feels like just a few months ago.

Something […]

You might remember last month my beloved dog Ben was unwell with pancreatitis. Unfortunately, he’s not quite recovered yet and I’ve had a few expensive trips to the vet with him for more scans, blood tests, medication and even an ultrasound (yes, they did have to shave his tummy and it’s pretty much the cutest thing I’ve […]

I’m lucky to live just an hour from Edinburgh, meaning I’ve visited the city lots. I visit on day trips, for weekends and for mid-week getaways. It’s such a fun city to visit and explore and each time I visit I feel I get to know it even better. As well as the usual tourist attractions and some other less […]

Why Travel is a Form of Self-Care

By |May 28th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

Self-care has become something of a buzz phrase in the last year or so and shows no signs of disappearing off the radars. If you don’t know what self-care is (have you been living under a rock?), it describes “any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated.”

Practising self-care means different things for different people. […]

The popularity of gin has blown up exponentially in recent years. Let’s face it, gin used to be one of those drinks that were loved by grandmothers, but now everyone can’t get enough of gin!

Did you know that more than 70% of all gin produced in The UK comes from Scotland? Scotland (a nation that loves a good tipple!) has […]

What is Travel?

By |May 7th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

The title of this blog post might be throwing you off a little. What is travel?

Well, duh, it’s…travel. It’s obvious isn’t it?

You’d be forgiven for thinking this. But, when you *really* think about it, what actually counts as travel?

Does visiting a new city for an afternoon count as travel? Does heading to an all-inclusive resort and not setting foot outside […]
