Rainy Day Things to do in Glasgow

By |September 6th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|0 Comments

If you’ve never been to Glasgow before then let me warn you before your visit…it rains a lot! The west of Scotland is pretty much the wettest part of the country and Glasgow has around 200 days of rain per year. That’s more days with rain than without!

Even with the rain, Glasgow is still one of my favourite cities in […]

Monthly Round-Up: August Edition

By |September 3rd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What’s been happening in August? 
It’s been a pretty packed month. I watched Thomas’ older brother get married, picked our bridesmaids dresses for my brother’s upcoming wedding, visited work clients and had some gorgeous meals out with friends and family.

August also involved a dreamy long weekend away at Archerfield Estate lodges. Those of you who are regular readers here will know […]

Thomas is already in Portugal on a golfing holiday with the guys. Instead of him flying home, he’s staying there and I’m flying out to meet him. He’s meeting me at the airport with a rental car that we’ll have for our time […]

So, a week or so ago I noticed something on my blogging dashboard…I had published 700 travel blog posts! SEVEN HUNDRED blog posts. Wow.

(Yes, it would have been way better if I’d noticed and been able to write this post as my 700th post but oh well.)

I started my blog way back in 2011. And, yes, I did just have […]

Things to do in The Algarve

By |August 23rd, 2018|Destinations, Portugal|0 Comments

The Algarve region of Portugal is one of my absolute favourite places to visit in Europe.

I’ve been lucky enough to visit this gorgeous region many, many times. It’s close proximity to my home in Scotland, and it’s infinitely better weather, makes it an ideal destination for me to escape to for a few days or more. Having been there so […]

North Berwick is one of my absolute favourite little towns in Scotland. It’s a place I visit several times each year when we go on long weekends to Archerfield Estate, which is just a few miles away from the town.

As it’s somewhere I’ve been so often for the last 7-8 years, I’ve gotten to know North Berwick very well. I […]

A couple of weekends ago I finally went somewhere I’ve wanted to go for ages. I went to Big Feed, Scotland’s biggest indoor street food market!

Big Feed is hosted in a warehouse in an unassuming street in Govan. We parked up and began to walk towards the door of the warehouse but we could already hear live music and plenty […]

By |August 2nd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What’s been happening in July? 
It’s been another month of almost exclusively glorious weather here in Scotland. We’ve been enjoying sunshine and plenty of blue skies for weeks now which, if you’ve ever visited Scotland you’ll know is rather rare!

I’ve been making the most of the weather as much as possible. There have been barbeques, sunshine drinks, lots of walks, bridesmaid […]
