Driving (Part of) The North Coast 500

By |July 13th, 2017|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|2 Comments

During my trip up to the north of Scotland the thing I was most excited about was driving the North Coast 500. Well, at least a little chunk of it!

If you don’t know what the North Coast 500 is then you are missing out. It’s a 516 mile scenic route that starts and ends at Inverness Castle. Whilst driving the […]

A Contender for the Best Beach in Scotland

By |July 10th, 2017|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|0 Comments

I have something exciting to share!

I’m pretty sure I discovered one of Scotland’s best beaches last week!

During my trip up north with ScotRail I stumbled upon one of the best beaches I’ve ever seen. Certainly the best beach in Scotland I’ve ever come across. There was glorious white sand, tumbling sand dunes, a gorgeous bay, stunning turquoise waters and some of […]

It’s now been 4 weeks since I returned from my trip to Lagos, Portugal. I travelled with Thomas and three of our closest friends for a week of fun in the sun.

We hired a gorgeous villa with four bedrooms and three bathrooms around 15-20 minutes walk from the centre of Lagos. It was in a quiet, residential area and was […]

I’ve been saying for years that I want to discover more of what Scotland has to offer. It’s a fascinating country with beautiful landscapes and so much to explore. In the 27 years I’ve lived here I’ve been slowly but surely working my way around new places. This week, I’ll be spending more time exploring new places in Scotland and I […]

What’s been happening in June? 
June is almost over already, who can believe it!

June has been a little quieter than May and filled with some really fun things. It’s been a really great month!

The Importance of Home

By |June 26th, 2017|Life|0 Comments

As much as I love travel, I also love coming home. I love the feeling of walking through my front door into my very own space.

Home is a place I feel comfortable, creative and happy. It says a lot about me and what’s important to me. The home I’m living in now is especially important, as it’s the first home […]

20 Things That Happen During A Scottish Heatwave

By |June 22nd, 2017|Destinations, Scotland|0 Comments

There’s been something of a heatwave in Scotland for the last week or so. If you’re not from Scotland, let’s just say that means it’s been about 20 degrees Celsius or more. For us, that counts as a heatwave.

With this heatwave I’ve noticed some pretty distinct things that happen here in Scotland. We’re a pretty predictable breed, so this stuff […]

Packing List for a Villa Holiday

I’ve written before about how much I love staying in villas when I travel. They’re just so much fun (so much fun I’m tentatively planning another villa trip for next summer)! I just returned a couple of weeks ago from a trip to Lagos, Portugal where 5 of us stayed in a gorgeous villa. Now that I’ve stayed in villas […]

Exploring The Coastline of Lagos By Boat

By |June 15th, 2017|Destinations, Portugal, Travel Tales|0 Comments

One of the highlights of my trip to Lagos was taking a boat tour to see the coastline in all its glory. We opted for a short 1 hour tour in a boat that could hold 6 people. Perfect for the 5 in our group, plus the driver.

We hopped into our small boat, put on our lifejackets and got comfortable […]

Five-Years Self Employed (Who Can Believe It?!)

By |June 12th, 2017|Life|1 Comment

On the plane back from my latest trip to Portugal I was doing what I always love doing on planes. Sitting in the window seat, gazing out at the world below looking so small and I was lost in thought. I do all my best thinking on planes. I was thinking about everything – life, my business, my home, my […]
