The Perfect Amount of Travel

By |October 22nd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What is the perfect amount of travel?

Well, obviously it’s going to be different for everyone. Some people like continuous travel and always being on the road. Others like to travel a few times a month and others are content with getting away a few times a year. Everyone is different, after all.

There are many factors that can influence how much […]

Why I Love Coming Home After Travel

By |October 8th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

As much as I love to travel it’s always nice to return home at the end of a trip. Whether I’ve been away from home for weeks, or just a few days it’s always nice to be back (even if it usually means coming home to dreary Scottish weather!).

It’s nice to come home to my house that I absolutely adore and […]

Why I’m Grateful to Have a Regular Weekend Getaway

By |October 4th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

As I flopped down into the impossibly comfortable bed I found myself smiling. I was still smiling contentedly a few moments later when I started rubbing my night cream into my face, soothing it after the blustery sea air had battered on the beach a few hours earlier.
I felt happy, content and comfortable.
It was the end of another day at […]

Monthly Round-Up: September Edition

By |October 1st, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What’s been happening in September?
What a fantastic month September has been! There have been trips abroad and in Scotland, birthdays to celebrate, more trips planned and catch ups with friends and family.

The month started off with me flying to Portugal to meet Thomas for a holiday together. We had an amazing week staying in Vilamoura and travelling throughout the region […]

Monthly Round-Up: August Edition

By |September 3rd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What’s been happening in August? 
It’s been a pretty packed month. I watched Thomas’ older brother get married, picked our bridesmaids dresses for my brother’s upcoming wedding, visited work clients and had some gorgeous meals out with friends and family.

August also involved a dreamy long weekend away at Archerfield Estate lodges. Those of you who are regular readers here will know […]

Next week I’m heading back to one of my favourite European destinations – The Algarve region of Portugal!

Thomas is already in Portugal on a golfing holiday with the guys. Instead of him flying home, he’s staying there and I’m flying out to meet him. He’s meeting me at the airport with a rental car that we’ll have for our time […]

700 (+ 3!) Blog Posts

By |August 27th, 2018|Life|1 Comment

So, a week or so ago I noticed something on my blogging dashboard…I had published 700 travel blog posts! SEVEN HUNDRED blog posts. Wow.

(Yes, it would have been way better if I’d noticed and been able to write this post as my 700th post but oh well.)

I started my blog way back in 2011. And, yes, I did just have […]

Monthly Round-Up: July Edition

By |August 2nd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What’s been happening in July? 
It’s been another month of almost exclusively glorious weather here in Scotland. We’ve been enjoying sunshine and plenty of blue skies for weeks now which, if you’ve ever visited Scotland you’ll know is rather rare!

I’ve been making the most of the weather as much as possible. There have been barbeques, sunshine drinks, lots of walks, bridesmaid […]

Why Visiting 40 Countries Before I’m 30 is Important to Me

By |July 30th, 2018|Life|2 Comments

I’ve travelled to 39 countries so far.

39 countries across 5 continents.

39 countries out of some 195 countries in the world.

To some that might seem like an incredible achievement, whilst to others it may seem so tiny as to be almost inconsequential.

Well, to me, it’s important.

I feel proud to have set foot in 39 countries across the world. The majority have […]

The Joy of NOT Writing About Travel

By |July 23rd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

I love writing. But, that probably won’t come as any surprise to anyone to hear that a travel blogger loves writing.

I’ve always loved writing. Ever since I can remember I’ve loved it. Even when I was about 7 and I wrote a 24-page story about children living in Bangladesh after watching a particularly poignant Blue Peter appeal.

These days, I’ve moved […]
