Social and Cocktail Event | Mobile Cocktail Party Glasgow

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

When I’m not travelling I love doing new things and having fun with friends during my time at home so when I heard about the chance to host my very own cocktail party in my house I got very excited. I might even have jumped up and down and squealed a little bit. Who wouldn’t love a night in with friends and some wonderful cocktails without having to traipse around town in the rain (yes, it’s always raining in Glasgow).

India’s Golden Triangle in Pictures

Posted on by Emma Gray in Destinations, India, Travel Tales | 5 Comments

I’ve just returned from the trip of a lifetime! I visited India’s Golden Triangle earlier this month with my mum, who has been desperate to travel to India ever since she was a little girl.

There are more details on our Indian itinerary here, but the short version is that we flew to Delhi, took a detour off the Golden Triangle to visit Shimla, then returned to Delhi, travelled to Agra and then onto Jaipur, before heading back to Delhi to complete the full triangle.

India is a crazy, confusing, chaotic and wonderful country. I loved my time there, but it’ll be a little while before I know exactly how to put it all down into words on this blog as it’s more than a little overwhelming and we saw so much in such a short space of time. So, for now, here’s a little taster of my India experience in pictures…
