If you’re a regular reader here you might have noticed I mentioned recently that one day I’d love to take part in the Holi celebrations in India. Well, it might not quite have been as exciting as India, but I’ve just taken part in some Holi celebrations Scotland style!
So, what is Holi?
Holi is a religious celebration of spring, which is usually observed by Hindus primarily in India and Nepal. The beginning of spring is marked by throwing coloured powders and water at everyone around them, as well as dancing, singing and other festivities. They believe it is a perfect way to welcome the colours of spring and a change in the weather.
Everyone has travel dreams, places that they’d love to visit, events they’d love to take part in and spectacles they’d like to see. Obviously, I can’t share all my travel dreams with you as I’d be typing away here for days and days as my list only gets longer. Instead, I’m only sharing my ultimate travel dreams, those things I absolutely must do before I die. Call it a bucket-list if you wish – here are my top travel dreams that I’m determined to realise!
You know those moments of travel that are so special you have to pinch yourself to make sure you’re not dreaming? The moments where you can’t believe how lucky you are to be in that situation? The moments that make you glad to be alive and wishing they could last forever? Well, I’ve had loads of them while travelling, and I wanted to share some of my favourite ones with you.

Newcastle is a city that’s pretty famous for its party scene, so where better for me to head to celebrate my 23rd birthday with friends?
Because Newcastle has the reputation of being a city that likes to party, there are some places that are always packed full of rowdy stag and hen groups visiting for a few days. My tip is to avoid these places, unless you want to be chilling with guys in matching t-shirts with lewd things shaved into their hair (seriously, we saw those guys walking down the street barking like dogs. WEIRD)!
So, here’s a few tips on the best places in Newcastle where you can eat, drink and dance with the locals, and steer mostly clear of the groups of stag and hen parties.
I love colour, and I love finding colourful and exciting places around the world, so here’s a collection of my favourite photos featuring colours around the world…
One of my favourite places to stay in Scotland is at Archerfield Links Golf Club luxury lodges. With my birthday coming up later this week (it’s on Friday and, yes, presents are welcome!), we decided to head out there for a weekend and enjoy a spot of luxury.
My favourite thing about the lodges is the stunning views you can enjoy from every window, and especially from the large balcony. All of the lodges offer views over the golf course and I can’t wait to come back in summer and savour the views on a warm evening with a cool glass of wine in hand. Read more
