Celebrating My 23rd Birthday in Newcastle

Posted on by Emma Gray in England | 2 Comments

Newcastle is a city that’s pretty famous for its party scene, so where better for me to head to celebrate my 23rd birthday with friends?

Because Newcastle has the reputation of being a city that likes to party, there are some places that are always packed full of rowdy stag and hen groups visiting for a few days. My tip is to avoid these places, unless you want to be chilling with guys in matching t-shirts with lewd things shaved into their hair (seriously, we saw those guys walking down the street barking like dogs. WEIRD)!

So, here’s a few tips on the best places in Newcastle where you can eat, drink and dance with the locals, and steer mostly clear of the groups of stag and hen parties.

Luxury Living at Archerfield Links

Posted on by Emma Gray in Scotland | Leave a comment

One of my favourite places to stay in Scotland is at Archerfield Links Golf Club luxury lodges. With my birthday coming up later this week (it’s on Friday and, yes, presents are welcome!), we decided to head out there for a weekend and enjoy a spot of luxury.

Archerfield Links Lodges

My favourite thing about the lodges is the stunning views you can enjoy from every window, and especially from the large balcony. All of the lodges offer views over the golf course and I can’t wait to come back in summer and savour the views on a warm evening with a cool glass of wine in hand. Read more

Why I Think I Could Live in Berlin

Posted on by Emma Gray in Germany | Leave a comment

Berlin really is a place that I could imagine living in. I’ve written before on my previous trip to Berlin about how I worried I wouldn’t be ‘cool’ enough, or edgy enough, or hipster enough, or just enough for Berlin. I then spent the whole trip realising that it doesn’t matter who you are in Berlin, nobody seems to care. Everyone seems to be accepted here, and it’s part of the reason why I love it.

Berlin is a place that is world renowned for its street art, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. It seems as though at every turn you are confronted with street art of some kind. Some of it is truly interesting, thought provoking and makes walking around Berlin that bit more exciting as you never know what you’ll stumble upon next. Here’s some of my favourite pictures of the street art of Berlin…

The Best Restaurants in Glasgow

Posted on by Emma Gray in Scotland | 5 Comments

Whenever I’m not travelling, and I’m spending some time at home working I like to eat out in Glasgow. Glasgow’s got some fantastic restaurants so I wanted to share my round-up of the best restaurants Glasgow has to offer (in my humble opinion!)…

Best Grill

The Grill on the Corner is a place I go to eat once every couple of weeks with friends. It has a great atmosphere, chic decor and absolutely delicious food. It’s most famous for it’s steaks, which are amazing, but I also have a major soft spot for their fajitas. They also serve great cocktails, which you can enjoy with your meal, or before or after dinner in their comfortable bar area. Trust me, their cocktails are amazing!
