Who is Emma?
I’m Emma, a 24 year old Scottish girl who is obsessed with travel. I’ve been to 35 countries so far and I’m constantly plotting to add to that number. After graduating from university with a degree in English Literature I decided to combine my passion for travel with my love of writing and Emma’s Travel Tales was born.

Earlier this week I wrote a long piece all about my favourite things about travel, so I thought it was time to balance that out and compose a list of my least favourite things about travel.
There are plenty of things that irritate me when I’m travelling, but they are all mostly minor things and the good parts of travel completely outweigh the bad. For all the negative points about travel there are countless positive ones and a few bad experiences will never be enough to put me off my love of travel.
Without any further ado here are my least favourite things about travel… Read more
I write a lot on here about travel – where I’ve been, how you can get there, what you could do and see in different destinations and about all of the other elements of travel that I can think to share with you all. Now it’s time to take a step back and consider just what exactly are my favourite things about travel.
When I travel I truly feel alive and travel has helped me find my own path in life. I’ve picked a life filled with travel over the type of life that all my friends and family live, and there are so many things that would never have happened had it not been for travel and my love of visiting new cities and countries.
Travel has undoubtedly enriched and enhanced my life and, as cheesy as it is, I think I’m a much better and more well-balanced person for having seen new places and tried new things along the way. Read more
It’s no secret that everywhere looks better in the sunshine, and Scotland is no exception to this rule. Scotland is a breathtakingly beautiful country even on a grey, rainy day (we get those too often in Scotland!) but add some golden sunshine and blue skies and it’s undoubtedly one of the most gorgeous places on the planet. I know as a native Scot I’m totally biased but I hope my pictures can help convince you that I’m not utterly deluded…
As a girl who has visited 35 countries in my 24 years on this planet it’s safe to say that travel has been a big part of my life so far. I absolutely adore travel and there’s not a day that goes by where I don’t think about somewhere I’ve been, somewhere I’m going or somewhere I dream of exploring in the future.
At the age of 24 I certainly don’t profess to know the meaning of life or anything as serious as that, but I do know that life isn’t worth living without happiness.
Barcelona is a city that I absolutely adore. The architecture is some of my favourite in the world, the food is to die for and I love the constant buzz and excitement of the city. It offers the glorious mix of having a beautiful beach where you can relax with the sand between your toes and the sun on your skin and it also offers all of the things you’d expect from a cosmopolitan major city.
I’ve been to Barcelona probably around ten different times so I like to think I know the city pretty well (although I am by no means an expert) so here’s some of my favourite top things to do in Barcelona… Read more
