A Festive Edinburgh Weekend

By |December 8th, 2016|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|4 Comments

With the end of 2016 fast approaching (like, seriously fast. Time slow down, please!) I’ve started to think about the places I’d like to visit next year. Everyone else is thinking about Christmas and I’m busy thinking about where I can book flights to. Standard.

Why Travel Doesn’t Have to be International

By |November 14th, 2016|Life, Travel Tales|4 Comments

When someone says travel you probably think of jumping on a plane and going to somewhere far-flung and different. You might think of somewhere you’ve never been before. Somewhere Other, challenging and thousands of miles from the comfort of home. Those experiences are great, trust me. I live for experiences like that.

Moving into my shiny new home has recently got me thinking about other places around the world I think I could call home. Obviously, I’ve just signed on the dotted line for a big fat mortgage here in Scotland, so this wouldn’t be anytime soon but, never say never.

Travel and FOMO

By |October 10th, 2016|Travel Tales|0 Comments

I’m not usually a sufferer of FOMO (that’s Fear Of Missing Out if you’ve been living under a rock). When I’m home, if friends are on a night out that I’ve not been able to make I don’t find myself really badly wishing I was there. I don’t worry about what I’m missing out on if I have work to […]

You eat alone 
Lets face it, eating alone can be scary. There’s the awkward moment where you have to ask […]
