Resolving to Travel More in The UK

By |May 23rd, 2016|Travel Tales, Life|1 Comment

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about this wonderful country I’m so lucky to live in. I have spent the last twenty six years of my life living in the UK and I haven’t seen as much of it as I would like.

I haven’t made it to Wales or Northern Ireland and, although I’ve visited England many times, I haven’t […]

I booked the trip as […]

By |May 5th, 2016|Travel Tales, Travel Tips|0 Comments

Let’s face it, given the chance pretty much everyone would agree that they’d like to travel more, experience more and do more than their lives currently allow.

Maybe you don’t earn as much as you’d like to enable you to travel more, maybe you’re busy saving for a car or a house and don’t have the extra cash for jet-setting, or […]

What’s been happening in April?
April has been another busy one with some highs and one notable low.

My post On Life, Perspective and Getting Away from it All explained how the sudden and unexpected death of my aunt left me reevaluating life and just how fragile it is.

Luxury For Less: 8 Places Your Money Will Go Further

By |April 28th, 2016|Travel Tales, Travel Tips|2 Comments

I’m a big fan of luxury experiences and getaways, but I don’t always like paying a tonne of money to have an incredible experience.

What to Pack for a Trip to India

By |April 4th, 2016|Travel Tales, Destinations, India, Packing Lists & What to Wear In...|0 Comments

Visiting India is exciting, overwhelming and a truly wonderful experience. Even though my trip there was a couple of years ago now, it’s a place I think of often and go between thoughts of how much I loved and and how much I loathed it within moments. People usually say that everyone either loves or hates India, but I went […]

Gorgeous Marbella in Photos

By |March 28th, 2016|Travel Tales, Spain, Destinations|2 Comments

I’m a pretty lucky girl as Thomas whisked me off to Marbella in southern Spain last week to celebrate my 26th birthday! Celebrating my birthday away from home has become something of a little tradition and this was the third birthday I’ve enjoyed in a different place. So much more fun than staying home!

We were in Marbella for four nights […]
