Italia con la famiglia!

Happy Monday everyone!

I’m feeling exceedingly chirpy and excited for a Monday morning, because it’s now less than 48 hours until I’m off to Italy!!

My dad is retiring from his job as an accountant and very generously announced last year that he wanted to celebrate by taking the family on a big Italian adventure! What a cool guy my dad is!

So, […]

The Picture Perfect Old Town of Marbella

By |June 23rd, 2016|Spain, Destinations|2 Comments

One of the things I loved most about Marbella was the impossibly adorable Old Town or Old Quarter that lies at the heart of the city.

If you read my April round up post you might have seen that on a whim I decided to book flights to Portugal for Thomas and I last week. I booked the flights as a surprise on Thursday night while Thomas was at the driving range and we left the following Tuesday, just 5 days later!

I booked the trip as […]

Stargazing in Scotland at a Dark Sky Park

By |April 21st, 2016|Scotland, Destinations|1 Comment

When you think of great locations for stargazing around the world Scotland probably isn’t somewhere that immediately springs to mind. I’ve lived in Scotland all my life and I’m a little ashamed to admit I didn’t realise there are some parts of the country that have absolutely perfect conditions for admiring the stars in the night sky.

What to Pack for a Trip to India

By |April 4th, 2016|Travel Tales, Destinations, India, Packing Lists & What to Wear In...|0 Comments

Visiting India is exciting, overwhelming and a truly wonderful experience. Even though my trip there was a couple of years ago now, it’s a place I think of often and go between thoughts of how much I loved and and how much I loathed it within moments. People usually say that everyone either loves or hates India, but I went […]

I’m a pretty lucky girl as Thomas whisked me off to Marbella in southern Spain last week to celebrate my 26th birthday! Celebrating my birthday away from home has become something of a little tradition and this was the third birthday I’ve enjoyed in a different place. So much more fun than staying home!

We were in Marbella for four nights […]
