A Festive Edinburgh Weekend

By |December 8th, 2016|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|4 Comments

I am a total lover of winter city breaks, especially just before Christmas. I love visiting places when they’re cold, crisp and decorated to the hilt for the festive period. Edinburgh just happens to be one of my absolute favourite cities to visit at Christmas time so last weekend Thomas and I, along with two of our friends headed for […]

St Andrews in Pictures

By |November 3rd, 2016|Destinations, Scotland|1 Comment

Last weekend I enjoyed another trip back to the gorgeous seaside city of St Andrews, on the east coast of Scotland. It’s less than two hours drive from home, so it’s the perfect spot for a quick weekend getaway, whilst also feeling a million miles from home.

I travelled with my brother Iain, his girlfriend Michelle and my parents. My boyfriend […]

I make no secret of the fact that, as much as I love travelling abroad, I also love travelling in my beloved Scotland. Road trips are pretty much the perfect way to do that, and so a couple of weeks ago Thomas and I jumped in the car ready for a much-needed Scottish getaway.

Our destination was the Four Seasons Hotel, […]

Charming, Beautiful Ravello

During my amazing trip to Sorrento this summer I had the opportunity to visit Ravello, an Italian resort town that’s home to some of the most incredible views of the Amalfi Coast.

The town itself is small and incredibly charming, and lies high above the glittering waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea below. Although the real killer views are the ones out over […]

4 Day Trips to Take from Glasgow

By |September 12th, 2016|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tips|1 Comment

I often get comments and emails from readers who are coming to Scotland and staying in Glasgow but want to get out of the city for at least a day to see some more of what the country has to offer. Although Glasgow is great and will always be one of my favourite cities in the world, I couldn’t agree […]

This summer I was lucky enough to spend a week in a gorgeous villa in Sorrento (read more about the villa and how amazing it was here!) and have visited a number of times previously too. No matter how many times I visit here I always find so many new and exciting things to do and see. Italy is a […]

A Fun Glasgow Mini-Break

By |August 29th, 2016|Destinations, Life, Scotland|0 Comments

Last month Thomas and I indulged in a little mini-break in Glasgow to celebrate our three year anniversary and it was so much fun!

Glasgow is such an exciting city to visit and I always enjoy spending time there, even although I’ve stayed just 20 minutes from the city my entire life. There’s always something new going on, an event happening […]

Ciccheti – A True Taste of Venice

By |August 22nd, 2016|Destinations, Italy, Travel Tales, Travel Tips|4 Comments

One of the things many people – myself included – want when they travel is to eat in places where local people are eating. These are usually the best places to dine out and it’s always exciting to try local flavours, traditional dishes and mingle among the people who call that place home.

Venice is one of the busiest tourist cities […]

Tips for Travelling By Train in France

By |August 8th, 2016|Cruise Tips, Destinations, France, Travel Tips|0 Comments

I feel very lucky to have travelled extensively through France and have done so many times by train. Train travel is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to get around in France. Plus it’s a good way to see some of the gorgeous countryside and dramatic coastlines that it’s blessed with.

I’ve only ever had positive experiences with train travel […]

Visiting Gorgeous Burano, Venice

By |July 28th, 2016|Destinations, Italy, Travel Tales|0 Comments

I’d wanted to visit Burano on a few of my previous trips to Venice but hadn’t managed to fit it in for whatever reason. On my trip to Venice last month I resolved that I *had* to get myself to Burano once and for all, to see the gorgeous colourful buildings for myself.

All of the houses in Burano are painted […]
