By |September 28th, 2017|Life, Travel Tales|2 Comments

Some people have shopping wishlists, I have a travel wishlist. A list of places I really, really, really want to go to. The kind of places I regularly find myself looking at flight prices to and daydreaming about visiting. Some of these places have been on my wishlist for years, while others are fairly new entries. I’m always adding more […]

By |September 25th, 2017|Life, Travel Tales|3 Comments

195 countries, 510.1 million kilometres squared and around 6909 languages make up the world around us. Those are some pretty incredible numbers.

“That’s a bit of a random title for a blog post”, I bet you’re thinking to yourself. I know, I know. I agree. It *is* a random title for a blog post, but I couldn’t think of anything more effective. I couldn’t think of a better way to title something I’m not sure exactly how I feel about. Yes, pretty […]

Hiring a car in the south of France was absolutely one of the best things we did on our trip there.

Thomas was the one who came up with the idea, so I let him pick the car. After all, he was the one who would be doing the driving! We had just decided on the spur of the moment to […]

My Favourite Place

By |August 24th, 2017|Life, Travel Tales|2 Comments

The question I get asked the most as a travel blogger is definitely ‘where’s your favourite place?’. Whenever I meet anyone new who finds out I’m a travel blogger they’re almost certain to ask this. I can understand why, I’d probably do the same if it was the other way around.

It’s a question I dread though.

I dread it because I […]

By |August 10th, 2017|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|0 Comments

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 […]
