Why I Won’t Apologise for Getting Excited About Travel

By |September 24th, 2018|Travel Tales|0 Comments

“Surely you don’t get excited about going on holiday at your age?”
The words weren’t directed at me, thankfully (surely I’m not old enough for people to say things like that yet!). Thomas’ brother Dougie read them out from a text message he received. He was staying at our house before flying out to Spain for a week in the sun […]

The One Thing I Wish More People Cared About When Travelling

By |September 10th, 2018|Travel Tales|0 Comments

For the most part, I don’t really bother about other people’s travel style or what they get up to on the road. I’m a ‘live and let live’ kind of girl.

If people want to spend two weeks in an all-inclusive resort and not see any of a country then that’s fine. It isn’t what I’d personally choose to do, but […]

By |September 6th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|0 Comments

If you’ve never been to Glasgow before then let me warn you before your visit…it rains a lot! The west of Scotland is pretty much the wettest part of the country and Glasgow has around 200 days of rain per year. That’s more days with rain than without!

Even with the rain, Glasgow is still one of my favourite cities in […]

We’re Going Camping! | Any Tips for Novice Campers?

By |July 12th, 2018|Travel Tales|0 Comments

We’re going camping!

That’s a sentence I didn’t really think I’d be writing (typing).

I’ve been camping a couple of times before, but I was kind of put off by my last camping experience. Once was a week in the north of England at a massive Guide camp. The other was when Thomas and I went camping for a night a few years […]

What to do on Rainy Travel Days

By |July 9th, 2018|Travel Tales|0 Comments

You wake up in an unfamiliar bed to the sound of rain battering the window. The soothing, relaxing sound of rain.

But wait. You quickly remember you’re on holiday and the last thing you want is rain.

Bad weather can ruin all your holiday plans, especially if you’re in a typically sunny weather destination. After all, you can’t go to the beach […]

By |July 2nd, 2018|Travel Tales|0 Comments

I don’t mean to alarm anyone, but we’re already halfway through 2018. How the heck did that happen so quickly? It seems like just a month or two ago it was the beginning of the year. And, yes, I know it’s a sign I’m getting old that I start saying (writing) things like that.

Long time readers here might remember that […]
