The popularity of gin has blown up exponentially in recent years. Let’s face it, gin used to be one of those drinks that were loved by grandmothers, but now everyone can’t get enough of gin!

Did you know that more than 70% of all gin produced in The UK comes from Scotland? Scotland (a nation that loves a good tipple!) has […]

My Poorly Pup, Pancreatitis and Realisations

This week my beloved dog Ben has been ill. Like, really ill.

He had no energy, was sleeping all the time, being sick and had really bad diarrhoea. We rushed him to the vet and were told they’d have to keep him in. They wanted to run tests and put him on a drip to get fluids into him as quickly […]

Guys, I did something rather exciting last week. I booked to go back to India next year!

Why I Went Skiing in Bulgaria

By |April 5th, 2018|Bulgaria, Destinations, Travel Tales|0 Comments

I’m sure Bulgaria isn’t the first destination that springs to mind when I mention skiing in Europe, right? It definitely wasn’t a ski destination on my radar before either. You’d be forgiven for wondering why I went all the way to Bulgaria for a ski trip.

When I think of skiing in Europe I immediately think of the big resorts, like […]

Just over a week ago I was in Pamporovo, Bulgaria enjoying my first ever ski trip. I was there for a week with Thomas, his sister Andrea and her partner Richard.
