One of the things I knew I wanted to do on my trip to the far north of Scotland was visit the most northern point in mainland UK.
I must admit, though, that I believed this to be at John O’Groats. I’d always heard the things about people travelling from Land’s End to John O’Groats, the two most extreme parts of […]

Why Planning is Half the Fun

By |August 7th, 2017|Travel Tales|0 Comments

I don’t know about you but I love, love, love planning a trip. For me, there are few things better than sitting down with a fresh notebook, my laptop and getting into planning mode.

I love planning out all those little details that other people probably hate. Like transfers from the airport to the accommodation. Or checking if we’re staying within […]

Holiday Reading

By |August 3rd, 2017|Travel Tales|1 Comment

What’s your favourite thing to do on a relaxing holiday? I know one of mine is lying by the pool or beach reading a really good book. I also love reading on the plane or any other form of transport, and sometimes before bed (if I haven’t had one too many cocktails by then!). Reading has always been one of […]

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.

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

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 […]

Exploring The Coastline of Lagos By Boat

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 […]

What’s been happening in May? 
What hasn’t been happening in May?! May has been a really busy, but incredibly fun month.

First up was a trip to Archerfield, the luxury lodges my family and I visit three times a year. The weather was stunning and we had one of the best weekends yet.

Then, we celebrated Thomas’ 30th birthday! On the actual day […]
