What to Wear in Morocco

Posted on by Emma Gray in Morocco, Packing Lists & What to Wear In..., Travel Tales | 14 Comments

Much of my time before I visited Morocco was spent not trying to find out where I should visit, what I should eat and what I should do, but instead searching for what I should wear during my time there.

I expected to find an abundance of information telling me what would be appropriate in a religious and conservative country but the information I was finding was both conflicting and confusing. Serious dilemma!

The Colours of Morocco

Posted on by Emma Gray in Morocco, Travel Tales | 4 Comments

Last week I finally managed to make my first foray into Africa by visiting Morocco’s largest city, Casablanca!

Africa is my fifth continent (and Morocco my 34th country!) and I was more than a little excited to be there. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect though, hearing all different reports about Africa and Morocco itself from numerous sources.

One thing I did expect to find in Africa was colour, and I wasn’t disappointed!

My Favourite Places in Scotland

Posted on by Emma Gray in Scotland, Travel Tales | 2 Comments

Chances are if you’ve visited my blog before you’ll know I’m very passionate about my beautiful home country of Scotland. I’ve lived here all of my 23 years and despite leaving often to travel to other corners of the globe I always love returning.

Scotland has a hold over me but I can’t pinpoint exactly what it is. Perhaps it’s the friendly people, some of the friendliest in the world; perhaps it’s the raw, natural beauty; perhaps it’s the fact we have some exciting, vibrant cities and also have so much untouched, empty land outwith them. I don’t know exactly, but I know that wherever I go I’ll always love coming home to Scotland.

My Favourite Things About India

Posted on by Emma Gray in India, Travel Tales | 6 Comments

Before I travelled to India everyone said it was a country that you either love or hate, but I think I left feeling somewhere quite in the middle. There were elements of India that enchanted and inspired me, but equally there were other parts that frustrated and overwhelmed me. It’s a dizzying place that I will never forget and it has undoubtedly left a huge impression on me.

Doors Around The World

Posted on by Emma Gray in India, Ireland, Italy, Travel Tales | 4 Comments

Doors. They’re everywhere. They’re functioning, useful and there’s definitely more doors than people in every single place you visit. That doesn’t mean that they have to be drab and utilitarian though!

I love nothing more than a bright colour pop door, a rustic wooden door with the paint peeling and the wood crumbling slightly and don’t even get me started on big heavy door knockers. Love them!

I’ve discovered some truly beautiful doors around the world on my travels so lets take a look at some of my favourites…

Tips To Stay Healthy While Travelling

Posted on by Emma Gray in Travel Tales | Leave a comment

Travel can be amazing, exhilarating, enlightening and eye-opening but at times it can also be stressful, frustrating, exhausting and nerve-wracking. Travel sure can take it’s toll on your emotions, not to mention on your health.
STRAY HEALTHY WHILE TRAVELLING

I’m quite lucky that I very rarely get sick, and almost never on the road (although I bet now I’ve said that I’ll get sick !). I travelled through India for 2 weeks without falling foul to a bout of the dreaded Delhi Belly and I put it down to a strong immune system and making smart choices and taking precautions while I’m away from home and all that is familiar and safe. So, here are a few of my favourite tips on how to stay healthy while travelling the world. Read more
