The Ultimate Guide to North Berwick

By |August 16th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland|0 Comments

North Berwick is one of my absolute favourite little towns in Scotland. It’s a place I visit several times each year when we go on long weekends to Archerfield Estate, which is just a few miles away from the town.

As it’s somewhere I’ve been so often for the last 7-8 years, I’ve gotten to know North Berwick very well. I […]

Big Feed Glasgow: Scotland’s Biggest Indoor Street Food Market

By |August 6th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland|0 Comments

A couple of weekends ago I finally went somewhere I’ve wanted to go for ages. I went to Big Feed, Scotland’s biggest indoor street food market!

Big Feed is hosted in a warehouse in an unassuming street in Govan. We parked up and began to walk towards the door of the warehouse but we could already hear live music and plenty […]

Monthly Round-Up: July Edition

By |August 2nd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What’s been happening in July? 
It’s been another month of almost exclusively glorious weather here in Scotland. We’ve been enjoying sunshine and plenty of blue skies for weeks now which, if you’ve ever visited Scotland you’ll know is rather rare!

I’ve been making the most of the weather as much as possible. There have been barbeques, sunshine drinks, lots of walks, bridesmaid […]

Why Visiting 40 Countries Before I’m 30 is Important to Me

By |July 30th, 2018|Life|2 Comments

I’ve travelled to 39 countries so far.

39 countries across 5 continents.

39 countries out of some 195 countries in the world.

To some that might seem like an incredible achievement, whilst to others it may seem so tiny as to be almost inconsequential.

Well, to me, it’s important.

I feel proud to have set foot in 39 countries across the world. The majority have […]

The Joy of NOT Writing About Travel

By |July 23rd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

I love writing. But, that probably won’t come as any surprise to anyone to hear that a travel blogger loves writing.

I’ve always loved writing. Ever since I can remember I’ve loved it. Even when I was about 7 and I wrote a 24-page story about children living in Bangladesh after watching a particularly poignant Blue Peter appeal.

These days, I’ve moved […]

Getting Sick as a Freelancer

By |July 19th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

Getting sick sucks. There’s no doubt about it. Feeling unwell is never fun and it can be frustrating to have to put things on hold because you’re too sick to function properly.

When you’re a freelancer being sick is even worse. If you’re feeling too crappy to get work done then there’s nobody to stand in for you. There aren’t any […]

We’re Going Camping! | Any Tips for Novice Campers?

By |July 12th, 2018|Travel Tales|0 Comments

We’re going camping!

That’s a sentence I didn’t really think I’d be writing (typing).

I’ve been camping a couple of times before, but I was kind of put off by my last camping experience. Once was a week in the north of England at a massive Guide camp. The other was when Thomas and I went camping for a night a few years […]
