Why I Love Booking Travel in Advance

By |August 25th, 2016|Life, Travel Tales|0 Comments

Less than 48 hours after I touched down home after my trip to Italy in July I was already booking flights for another trip. That’s not unusual for me, you see. I always like to have at least one trip booked in advance, whether it’s for next month, six months or next year.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t book all […]

Ciccheti – A True Taste of Venice

By |August 22nd, 2016|Destinations, Italy, Travel Tales, Travel Tips|2 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 […]

Revisiting Countries and Places

By |August 4th, 2016|Travel Tales|1 Comment

I’m always a little baffled by the common misnomer that it is bad, wrong or silly to revisit countries you’ve already been to, because then you’re not seeing somewhere new. I find it to be so incredibly false.

I often find that my best visits are not my first visits to a place. And I would never have had those good […]

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 […]

TV Shows that Make Me Want to Travel

By |July 25th, 2016|Travel Tales|6 Comments

I don’t think I’m the only person who’s ever watched a TV show and found themselves really wanting to travel to the location that it’s set in.

I’m not talking about fictional locations like Hogwarts (although for some people that might be rather appealing), but real places that exist beyond the realms of your TV, laptop or iPad screen. Real, exciting […]

What’s been happening in June? 
June has been another busy but fun month!

The weather was incredible in Scotland at the end of May and up until around the middle of June so I made the most of it with plenty of BBQs, sunny walks with my pooch and copious amounts of al fresco working – one of the best parts of […]
