Why I Don’t Like to Travel at Christmas

By |November 15th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

I know, I know, it’s still November. Usually I wouldn’t be writing about Christmas quite so early, but it’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently.

Christmas travel is big business. There are loads of people who take the Christmas holidays as a great excuse to travel and I can totally see why. But I don’t like to travel at […]

My Journey of Being Self-Employed

By |November 12th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

There are around 4.8 million self-employed people in the UK. That sounds like a lot of people, doesn’t it?

It doesn’t sound so much when you say it like this, though: self-employed people make up about 15% of the workforce of the country.

Just 15%? That doesn’t sound like a lot at all.

But when I think about it, apart from other bloggers […]

Glasgow; Why I Love My City

By |November 8th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland|0 Comments

I’m fiercely passionate about my home city, Glasgow. I’ve lived just outside the city for my entire life and have always loved it.

I never fail to be disappointed when speaking to someone while I’m travelling who tells me they’ve visited Scotland, but only been to Edinburgh. Sure, Edinburgh is beautiful, but to overlook Glasgow is to do the city a […]

GlasGLOW – Glasgow’s Magical Halloween Light Experience

By |November 5th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland|0 Comments

Last week I visited GlasGLOW at Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens. GlasGLOW is probably best described as an immersive light and sound experience that is set up each year around Halloween.

A massive section of the Botanic Gardens are covered in lights that will dazzle you as you walk around. It’s pretty much the perfect way to embrace the darkness now that the clocks […]

What’s been happening in October? 
I hate to be that person, but how the heck is it November already? It feels like it was New Year not so long ago and now we’re getting closer and closer to the festive period.

October has been a really fantastic month. It started off with an unexpected and slightly spontaneous trip to Portugal with Thomas […]

5 Great Autumn-Winter European City Break Destinations

By |October 29th, 2018|Travel Tales|0 Comments

Are you looking for fantastic autumn-winter European city break destinations? If so, I’ve got you covered.

I’ve always felt that autumn and winter were great times for a city break. Summer isn’t my favourite time for a city break as it can be a bit too hot and sticky in a city, depending on where you travel to. If it’s too […]

Lesser-Known Places in Europe I Love

By |October 25th, 2018|Travel Tales|0 Comments

Europe has so many well-known spots. Paris, Rome, London, Amsterdam, Venice, Florence, Barcelona…I could go on and on. All of those are places I’ve been and they’re all popular with tourists from across the world for good reason. They’re all famous in different ways and draw tourists for different reasons.

But, Europe is also home to plenty of less well-known destinations […]

The Perfect Amount of Travel

By |October 22nd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What is the perfect amount of travel?

Well, obviously it’s going to be different for everyone. Some people like continuous travel and always being on the road. Others like to travel a few times a month and others are content with getting away a few times a year. Everyone is different, after all.

There are many factors that can influence how much […]
