I’m super excited for this weekend to hurry up and get here because I’m off to Bruges! It’ll be my first trip out of the country in 2015 (I’ve already been travelling within Scotland, of course!) and I can’t wait to grab my passport and get on that plane!
I’ll be travelling with Thomas and his parents as it’s a little celebratory trip for his father’s birthday. What a fantastic gift! We’re going for 4 days and I just can’t wait to start exploring. Read more
You know that feeling when you want to take a trip but aren’t sure where to go?
Sure, you could hit up some of Europe’s big-name cities like Paris, Rome, Barcelona or Madrid but, maybe you’ve already been there, or you just don’t feel like going somewhere that feels as though everyone visits. Or perhaps it’s that the inflated prices of the popular cities are simply not in your budget (yeah, I hate that). Either way, don’t let that stop you travelling.
In any country there’s always an alternative to the big, popular city where you can wander without fighting your way through those groups of Asian tourists fighting with each other to get the best photos on their gigantic cameras.

At the beginning of 2014 I decided to set myself a little challenge (not a new years resolution because I don’t really believe they ever work). My challenge was to read one book a week for the entirety of 2014 and I’m happy to say I’ve stuck to it and have finished my 52 books a little before my December 31st deadline!
I’m a self-confessed book nerd anyway so this challenge wasn’t actually too taxing for me, although there were definitely times when I ended up a bit behind and had to race through a few books in order to catch up..
Here’s a list of the 52 books I read with my favourite ones in bold… Read more
There are so many reasons why you should travel the world, but it’s something that a lot of people put off until later in life when they believe they’ll have more money, more time and fewer problems and responsibilities.
I’ve been lucky enough to have travelled to 36 different countries across 4 different continents so and I’m still only 24. I wouldn’t change anything about any of my travel experiences and I’m glad to have travelled from such a young age and I’d love to see many more people do the same.
Travel has influenced my life in a massive way and I’ve learnt so much while visiting new countries, meeting new people, trying new foods and learning about new cultures. Read more
