We’ve all been there before – we’re desperate to get away but just not sure how we can afford it. If the grey skies and falling leaves of autumn are beginning to get to you and you fancy a break from the monotony of everyday life then here are my best tips on how to save money when booking fights, hotels and everything else.
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.
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.

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’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…
I booked a holiday with my two best friends with the intention of having a relaxing week in the sunshine and if you’re looking for somewhere to chill out and relax on the Portuguese coastline then I’ve found it!
Lagos is a town in the popular Algarve region of Portugal and attracts visitors from around the world. I had a fabulous week exploring the town and beaches of Lagos and here’s just some of the reasons why. Read more
