Alternative Cities to Visit in Europe

Posted on by Emma Gray in Croatia, France, Scotland, Spain, Travel Tales | 1 Comment

You know that feeling when you want to take a trip but aren’t sure where to go?

Sure, you could hit up some of Europe’s big-name cities like Paris, Rome, Barcelona or Madrid but, maybe you’ve already been there, or you just don’t feel like going somewhere that feels as though everyone visits. Or perhaps it’s that the inflated prices of the popular cities are simply not in your budget (yeah, I hate that). Either way, don’t let that stop you travelling.
ALTERNATIVE CITIES TO VISIT IN EUROPE

In any country there’s always an alternative to the big, popular city where you can wander without fighting your way through those groups of Asian tourists fighting with each other to get the best photos on their gigantic cameras. There’s somewhere else you can visit that is less touched by tourism, doesn’t have the inflated prices and just feels more relaxed away from the crowds.

20 Things I Love About Glasgow

Posted on by Emma Gray in Scotland, Travel Tales | 2 Comments

I might be a little biased since it’s the nearest city to my countryside village home here in Scotland but I believe Glasgow is a truly underrated city. It’s all too often left forgotten and in the shadow of it’s prettier neighbour, Edinburgh, and I think people who don’t visit Glasgow are truly missing out.

A Guide to Scottish Slang

Posted on by Emma Gray in Scotland, Travel Tales | 4 Comments

One of the things I love about being Scottish (and there are many) is that us Scots have our own little Scottish words, phrases, slang and accents. I know from travelling a lot that we can sometimes be hard to understand for people who aren’t familiar with our accents and the fact that we talk at a rate of a million miles per hour, especially after a few drinks! To make things even more confusing for visitors different towns, sometimes only 30 miles apart, have completely different accents and slang words. SCOTTISH SLANG We have some pretty great Scottish slang words and if I tried to document them all for you I’d be here forever. So, I wanted to share a few of my favourites that you might want to know if you’re planning to visit my beautiful country, or you might just want to have a good giggle at. Try them out and you’ll impress the locals! Read more
