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
Any of you lovely people who are regular readers here will know I’m exceedingly, over-enthusiastically, desperately in love with my home country of Scotland. I think it’s one of the best in the entire world and always love an opportunity to explore it further as there’s just so many amazing places that I haven’t seen yet.
I recently returned from a wonderful three day road trip that saw us ambling through the west of Scotland’s countryside, past lochs, through valleys and over hills. Scotland is just so darn photogenic and I found myself wanting to stop the car every 10 minutes or so because of a beautiful view I’d seen and wanted to capture. How often do you get to say that about a country?!
The coming of June means that I’ve been a professional travel blogger and writer for two full years now. WOW!
Hangin’ with Buddha in Vietnam
It doesn’t seem like that long ago I was graduating from university and everyone thought I was a bit mad because I wasn’t frantically searching for a graduate job like everyone else. I knew the world of office jobs and corporate politics was definitely not for me so I graduated and immediately became a full time travel blogger and writer.
No two days are ever the same as a travel blogger. Some days are spent sitting at my desk all day writing, emailing and keeping up with all the behind the scenes stuff that goes on, and other days are spent exploring new destinations, going volcanic caving, quad biking or staying in fairy tale castles.
