If you’re thinking of renting a car in Portugal but are nervous because you’ve never driven abroad before then you’re in the right place!

By |October 8th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

As much as I love to travel it’s always nice to return home at the end of a trip. Whether I’ve been away from home for weeks, or just a few days it’s always nice to be back (even if it usually means coming home to dreary Scottish weather!).

It’s nice to come home to my house that I absolutely adore and […]

By |October 4th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

As I flopped down into the impossibly comfortable bed I found myself smiling. I was still smiling contentedly a few moments later when I started rubbing my night cream into my face, soothing it after the blustery sea air had battered on the beach a few hours earlier.
I felt happy, content and comfortable.
It was the end of another day at […]

Why I Won’t Apologise for Getting Excited About Travel

By |September 24th, 2018|Travel Tales|0 Comments

“Surely you don’t get excited about going on holiday at your age?”
The words weren’t directed at me, thankfully (surely I’m not old enough for people to say things like that yet!). Thomas’ brother Dougie read them out from a text message he received. He was staying at our house before flying out to Spain for a week in the sun […]

By |September 13th, 2018|Destinations, Portugal|0 Comments

Despite having been to Portugal’s Algarve region dozens of times, I’d never visited the city of Faro beyond landing at the airport. On my latest visit to the area, Thomas and I decided we’d take some time to check out the city itself.

We’d hired a car for our trip and drove the 30-minute journey from where we were staying in […]

The One Thing I Wish More People Cared About When Travelling

By |September 10th, 2018|Travel Tales|0 Comments

For the most part, I don’t really bother about other people’s travel style or what they get up to on the road. I’m a ‘live and let live’ kind of girl.

If people want to spend two weeks in an all-inclusive resort and not see any of a country then that’s fine. It isn’t what I’d personally choose to do, but […]
