16 Days Without Work (Kind Of)

By |March 15th, 2018|Travel Tales|0 Comments

Right now, as this post goes live, I’m six glorious days into my time off work. I’m currently in Bulgaria on a ski trip and (hopefully!) having an amazing time and haven’t broken any limbs yet! I wrote and scheduled this post prior to finishing work, so these are my thoughts prior to beginning my holiday time. 
Yes, taking 16 days […]

Out of Office: I’m Going Skiing!

The time has come – I’m finally off on my first ever ski trip! We booked the trip a while ago and it seems like it’s taken forever to get here.

Myself, Thomas, his sister Andrea and her partner Richard are heading to Bulgaria tomorrow for a week of skiing fun! We’re flying into Sofia and then taking a private transfer […]

What I Miss About Cruise Holidays

By |March 8th, 2018|Cruise Chat|0 Comments

I’ve been lucky enough to have been on 18 cruise holidays in my lifetime. Eighteen. That’s a lot for someone who’s only 27 years old. I didn’t go on my first cruise until I was 13, so that means I’ve done 18 cruises in the last 14 years. It sounds like a lot when I put it like that!

I’ve written […]

March Reads: Books I’m Taking on Holiday

By |March 5th, 2018|Life|1 Comment

It’s now just over a week until I head off to Bulgaria on my first ever ski holiday! I’m totally excited and am getting everything organised for the trip.

One thing I always make sure to take on holiday with me is my trusty Kindle. I’m a total bookworm and love to get lost in a book at any time. Reading […]

Monthly Round-Up: February Edition

By |March 1st, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What’s been happening in February? 
February has been a bit of a hectic month. Three members of Thomas’ family have all been in the hospital (with unrelated illnesses) at some point over the course of the month. This has meant plenty visits to hospitals etc.

Aside from that, we made it to another ice hockey match (Braehead Clan fans!) with a bunch […]

Thoughts Before My First Ski Trip

By |February 26th, 2018|Life|2 Comments

It’s now just two weeks until my first ever ski trip! I’m excited, nervous and a bit unsure of what exactly it’s going to be like.

We’re heading to Pamporovo in Bulgaria, one of the southernmost ski resorts in Europe. I haven’t been to Bulgaria before so visiting this new country is something I’m really looking forward to.

The only other wintery […]

Scotland; The Land of Castles

By |February 22nd, 2018|Destinations, Scotland|2 Comments

Castles, castles, everywhere.

Scotland is thought to be home to around 2,000 castles. For a country that’s just over 80,000 square kilometres and has a population of just over 5 million people, that’s a LOT of castles.

Although sadly now many castles are in states of ruin or disrepair, there are still some stunning examples to be found across the country. If […]

Why Travelling in Scotland is as Good as Travelling Abroad

By |February 19th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland|2 Comments

I feel so lucky to call Scotland my home, the country I was born in and have lived all of my life in. It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever set eyes upon.

Recently, I’ve realised just how rewarding travelling within Scotland can be. In the last 10 years especially, I’ve spent a lot of […]

The Places I Love The Most

Happy Valentines Day!

Whether you celebrate Valentines Day or not, or if you’re single or taken, I hope you’re having a really great day.

I’m not a huge fan of all the mushy, showy, over-the-top stuff that goes with Valentines Day, so today I decided simply to write about the places I love. A little love letter to the places that mean most […]

Glasgow Shopping Guide: Where to Shop in The City

By |February 12th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland|0 Comments

Whilst I might not be the biggest fan of shopping, having lived just outside Glasgow all my life I think I’m fairly qualified to put together a Glasgow shopping guide.

Within Glasgow you’ll find all the major high street retailers, some fantastic jewellers and plenty of independent stores too (if you know the right places to look!).

If you’re visiting the city […]
