A Snapshot of Dublin

Posted on by Emma Gray in Destinations, Ireland, Travel Tales | 13 Comments

I’ve just returned from almost a week in Ireland’s capital city, Dublin. It was my first ever visit to the Emerald Isle (ridiculous I know, since it’s less than an hour flight from Glasgow. I have no excuse!) and it was a bit of a whirlwind.

Trinity College, Dublin

Whilst I was in Dublin I attended popular travel blogging conference TBEX, and then extended my time in the city to go sightseeing and soak up the atmosphere. It’s a city that has so much going on (I mean where else can you listen to live music and see Irish dancers in a pub on a casual Monday night?!) and it has so much history running through it. Here’s a small snapshot of my time in Dublin…  Read more

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).

Travel Packing – What I Won’t Leave Home Without

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

I must confess, I’m a little bit strange in the fact that I absolutely love packing for a trip! I’m a little bit of an organisation loser, so sorting out my stuff and getting it all neatly packed in a suitcase or carry-on is kind of fun for me! So, just what exactly makes it into my suitcase on each trip. Here’s a few of the things that I simply won’t leave home without…

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…

Next week I’m fulfilling one of my biggest travel dreams and travelling to India! I’m travelling with my mum, who’s wanted to go to India ever since she was a little girl and I guess her enthusiasm for India has definitely rubbed off on me. We’ve got LOADS planned for during our trip  to make the most of our time there.
