It’s always been an appealing place for a day trip or weekend getaway. I’ve visited the city dozens and dozens of times and thought it was time I shared […]

The popularity of gin has blown up exponentially in recent years. Let’s face it, gin used to be one of those drinks that were loved by grandmothers, but now everyone can’t get enough of gin!

Did you know that more than 70% of all gin produced in The UK comes from Scotland? Scotland (a nation that loves a good tipple!) has […]

If you’re a regular reader around here you’ll know I went on my first ever ski trip last month. I travelled to Pamporovo in Bulgaria for a week with Thomas, his sister and her partner. We had an absolute blast and I can’t wait to go on another ski holiday again next ski season.

But, a ski holiday is a very […]

So you’ve booked your first ski trip and you’re wondering what on earth to pack. I feel you. I was the exact same before my first ski trip too. I read tonnes and tonnes of online articles on what to pack but found conflicting information everywhere.

To make it easier for you, I thought I’d put together my very own list […]

Why I Went Skiing in Bulgaria

By |April 5th, 2018|Bulgaria, Destinations, Travel Tales|0 Comments

I’m sure Bulgaria isn’t the first destination that springs to mind when I mention skiing in Europe, right? It definitely wasn’t a ski destination on my radar before either. You’d be forgiven for wondering why I went all the way to Bulgaria for a ski trip.

When I think of skiing in Europe I immediately think of the big resorts, like […]

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 […]

By |February 19th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland|2 Comments

I feel so lucky to call Scotland my home, the country I was born in and have lived all of my life in. It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever set eyes upon.

Recently, I’ve realised just how rewarding travelling within Scotland can be. In the last 10 years especially, I’ve spent a lot of […]

Glasgow Shopping Guide: Where to Shop in The City

By |February 12th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland|0 Comments

Whilst I might not be the biggest fan of shopping, having lived just outside Glasgow all my life I think I’m fairly qualified to put together a Glasgow shopping guide.

Within Glasgow you’ll find all the major high street retailers, some fantastic jewellers and plenty of independent stores too (if you know the right places to look!).

If you’re visiting the city […]
