Things I Loved About Dubai

By |November 16th, 2015|Destinations, Travel Tales, United Arab Emirates|2 Comments

I’ve not long returned from my very first trip to Dubai and I absolutely loved it! Of course, I was expecting to enjoy it and have a great holiday with Thomas, but I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did.

I kind of expected it to be somewhere that I would visit once and then wouldn’t really have […]

Dubai Here We Come!

By |October 26th, 2015|Destinations, United Arab Emirates|0 Comments

I’m super excited because tonight I’m jetting off to my next destination – Dubai!

I’ve been in the airport in Dubai countless times transiting between flights, so I can’t wait to finally leave the airport behind and spend some time exploring. We’re flying with Emirates, who are still my favourite airline having flown with them a few times before.

Thomas and I […]

Santa Margherita is a small town with a population of around 10,000 people and is around 40 minutes from port city Genoa. It’s 15 minutes by […]

Walking from Portofino to San Fruttuoso

By |October 13th, 2015|Destinations, Italy, Travel Tales|0 Comments

During our trip to Italy we knew definitely wanted to visit Portofino, the next town along the coastline from where we were staying in Santa Margherita. We’d also heard that the small town just beyond Portofino was also beautiful, so we decided to visit both in one day.

My family and I hopped on the ferry boat in the morning and […]

Expecting More from Cinque Terre

By |October 5th, 2015|Destinations, Italy, Travel Tales|4 Comments

‘Enchanting‘, ‘wonderful‘, ‘unique‘ – these are just some of the many words I’d heard used to describe the Cinque Terre before my visit there. After reading countless articles describing the incredible beauty of the five villages that make up the Cinque Terre – which means five lands in Italian – I was unsurprisingly eager to visit the area. I’d looked […]

Photos from Liguria Italy

I’ve just returned from spending a lovely five days in the Liguria region in the north west of Italy.

The trip was a celebration of my dad’s 60th birthday and my parents, brother and his girlfriend, Thomas and I all had a fabulous time. The weather was perfect, the sun was shining, the location is simply stunning, the food was delicious […]

Next Stop Italy!

By |September 23rd, 2015|Destinations, Italy, Life|1 Comment

Having stayed at home in Scotland for the past few months I’ve been suffering a serious case of itchy feet recently. Although I’ve travelled loads throughout Scotland and England and visited plenty of new places and old favourites in the last few months I absolutely can’t wait to get out of the country again for a little while.

On Friday morning […]

I’ve been lucky enough to stay in many lovely hotels around the world, many of them thanks to this blog. This past weekend I stayed at one of the best ones yet – the Old Course Hotel in beautiful St Andrews, Scotland.

Thomas and I had a busy weekend ahead celebrating at a 2 year old’s birthday party, a 50th birthday […]

Italy is one of my absolute favourite European countries and it’s somewhere I always love returning to. I’m actually heading to Italy at the end of next week, so I’m incredibly excited and can’t wait to be back there.
The food
It wouldn’t be right to write a list about reasons to visit Italy and not include the food. Italian food is […]

Beyond Edinburgh: There’s More to Scotland Than The Capital

By |September 9th, 2015|Destinations, Scotland|0 Comments

For so many years I’ve found myself frustrated when speaking to people who tell me they’ve visited Scotland, but not been outside of Edinburgh. Sure, Edinburgh is beautiful and has the gorgeous architecture and charming city-vibe, but there’s so much more to my amazing country than just this.

If you’re visiting Scotland and would like to see more of what it […]
