Why Scotland is One of My Favourite Places to Travel

By |July 17th, 2017|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|1 Comment

I’ve had some great trips in Scotland recently and it has undoubtedly solidified my love for my home country. I was born here 27 years ago and have always lived here, but I love travelling here too.

I travelled right up to the north of the country two weeks ago and fell head over heels again. I was stunned by how […]

Driving (Part of) The North Coast 500

By |July 13th, 2017|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|2 Comments

During my trip up to the north of Scotland the thing I was most excited about was driving the North Coast 500. Well, at least a little chunk of it!

If you don’t know what the North Coast 500 is then you are missing out. It’s a 516 mile scenic route that starts and ends at Inverness Castle. Whilst driving the […]

A Contender for the Best Beach in Scotland

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

I have something exciting to share!

I’m pretty sure I discovered one of Scotland’s best beaches last week!

During my trip up north with ScotRail I stumbled upon one of the best beaches I’ve ever seen. Certainly the best beach in Scotland I’ve ever come across. There was glorious white sand, tumbling sand dunes, a gorgeous bay, stunning turquoise waters and some of […]

It’s now been 4 weeks since I returned from my trip to Lagos, Portugal. I travelled with Thomas and three of our closest friends for a week of fun in the sun.

We hired a gorgeous villa with four bedrooms and three bathrooms around 15-20 minutes walk from the centre of Lagos. It was in a quiet, residential area and was […]

I’ve been saying for years that I want to discover more of what Scotland has to offer. It’s a fascinating country with beautiful landscapes and so much to explore. In the 27 years I’ve lived here I’ve been slowly but surely working my way around new places. This week, I’ll be spending more time exploring new places in Scotland and I […]

20 Things That Happen During A Scottish Heatwave

By |June 22nd, 2017|Destinations, Scotland|0 Comments

There’s been something of a heatwave in Scotland for the last week or so. If you’re not from Scotland, let’s just say that means it’s been about 20 degrees Celsius or more. For us, that counts as a heatwave.

With this heatwave I’ve noticed some pretty distinct things that happen here in Scotland. We’re a pretty predictable breed, so this stuff […]

Exploring The Coastline of Lagos By Boat

By |June 15th, 2017|Destinations, Portugal, Travel Tales|0 Comments

One of the highlights of my trip to Lagos was taking a boat tour to see the coastline in all its glory. We opted for a short 1 hour tour in a boat that could hold 6 people. Perfect for the 5 in our group, plus the driver.

We hopped into our small boat, put on our lifejackets and got comfortable […]

It’s travel time!

As this post goes live I’ll be heading to the airport with Thomas and one of our best friends. At the airport, we’re meeting two of our other friends (one of whom is celebrating a birthday that day!). We’re flying to Faro, in the Algarve region of Portugal, a place I love and know very well. From there […]

Spanish Destinations I Want to Visit

By |May 18th, 2017|Destinations, Spain|1 Comment

Spain’s relatively close proximity to Scotland and the number of cheap flights means that I’ve spent many holidays there. I’ve probably been in Spain about 25 – 30 times so far and feel very lucky for that. Spain is a country I adore. I love the people, the food (oh man, I LOVE the food), the sunshine, the relaxed pace […]
