Newcastle Gateshead; The Perfect Spring Getaway Location

By |March 29th, 2018|Destinations, England|0 Comments

Spring has officially sprung! And there’s nothing better than a little spring getaway to make the most of better weather, warmer temperatures and the exciting anticipation of summer.

One of my favourite spots in the UK for a city break is undoubtedly Newcastle. I’ve been lucky enough to have visited the city a handful of times and have always loved it. […]

Pictures from Pamporovo – My First Ski Trip

By |March 27th, 2018|Bulgaria, Destinations, Travel Tales|0 Comments

Just over a week ago I was in Pamporovo, Bulgaria enjoying my first ever ski trip. I was there for a week with Thomas, his sister Andrea and her partner Richard.

There were highs and lows, some seriously gorgeous scenery, tough ski days, sore limbs, great food, friendly people and plenty of laughs. As it was my first ever ski trip […]

Thoughts on Turning Twenty Eight

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

Hello, Twenty Eight!

Today it’s my birthday and I’m now officially (mortifyingly) in my late twenties. Edging closer and closer to thirty every day. Someone pass me some wine, quick!

I’m mostly kidding (although not about the wine part!). I’m not too bothered about getting older. It’s a privilege that many people don’t get to experience, so I want to make the […]

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 […]

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|2 Comments

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 […]
