Why I’ll Never Tire of Italy

By |December 4th, 2017|Destinations, Italy|0 Comments

I’ve written before about Portugal being one of my favourite countries. Italy is undoubtedly another. Italy is a destination I have a lot of love for and have so many fantastic memories of. It’s a place I never tire of returning to and I still have plenty Italian destinations on my must-visit list.

I can’t actually recall how many times I’ve […]

I’ve been lucky enough to visit The Algarve many, many times and my most recent trip there was my second this year. Myself, Thomas, my parents, my brother Iain and his girlfriend Michelle […]

“Let’s go for it then. Let’s just book it,” I said decisively.

I was sitting with Thomas and my parents looking at trips to India. We’d been talking about it back and forth for ages and finally agreed to go for it.

My parents had been looking at trips to India for months after my mum fell in love with India during our […]

Hiring a Car in the South of France

Hiring a car in the south of France was absolutely one of the best things we did on our trip there.

Thomas was the one who came up with the idea, so I let him pick the car. After all, he was the one who would be doing the driving! We had just decided on the spur of the moment to […]

As this post goes live I’ll likely be throwing the last few things into my suitcase before heading to the airport. I’m off to the south of France for five glorious days!

Visiting the Most Northern Point in Mainland UK

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

One of the things I knew I wanted to do on my trip to the far north of Scotland was visit the most northern point in mainland UK.
I must admit, though, that I believed this to be at John O’Groats. I’d always heard the things about people travelling from Land’s End to John O’Groats, the two most extreme parts of […]

Thinking About India

By |July 24th, 2017|Destinations, India|0 Comments

‘India,’ Wesley murmered, ‘it gets under your skin. Everywhere else seems dull by comparison.’
I recently read a book (The Tea Planter’s Daughter by Janet Macleod Trotter) that had the above quote in it. I couldn’t help but smile and found myself nodding along, agreeing. India definitely does get under your skin.

India has been on my mind a lot lately. As […]
