The South of France, also known as the Côte d’Azur or French Riviera, is one of my absolute favourite regions in the world. I’ve been lucky enough to have travelled there many, many times and for me there are SO many reasons to love this stunning area.
I’ve had a serious think about it and come up with my best 10 reasons to love the South of France…
I’m a firm believer that the UK is full of some incredible, interesting and beautiful places that are often overlooked in favour of more exotic destinations further afield. Here’s my pick of what I think are the best places to visit in the UK…
I’ve written so many articles about my love for Glasgow on here and it’s a city I never tire of exploring and seeing from new angles. Imagine how excited I was when that angle was to be 127 metres off the ground overlooking the entire city!

Glasgow Tower, which stands right next to the Science Centre in the West of the city, is the only structure in the world that is capable of rotating 360 degrees. Read more
Glasgow, the nearest city to my little village, has always been somewhere I’ve loved exploring. I cringe when visitors to Scotland only go to Edinburgh and miss out on all the great things Glasgow has to offer.

You might have noticed a few small changes here on Emma’s Travel Tales this month. My fabulous web designer has been working hard making the site more responsive and taking care of some other behind the scenes internetty stuff that is far too technical for me. This meant the blog was offline for a few days (boo!) and there were a few less posts than normal this month. Apologies for that but I promise it’s back to blogging business now! Read more
I’ve always kind of wondered why everyone waits for the summer to arrive in the UK and then immediately leaves to go on holiday, meaning they miss all the best weather? Surely when the sun is shining in Britain (which admittedly doesn’t happen all that often!) you want to stick around and make the most of it! With this idea in mind, last week I indulged in a little summer staycation and took a road trip to England’s Lake District for a relaxing few days.
I was thoroughly regretting this decision about 45 minutes from arriving in our first destination, Ambleside, as the rain was coming down in sheets and we couldn’t see any of the striking scenery because of it. Summer…what summer?! Luckily for us the rain stopped half an hour after arrival and it was blue skies all the way from there. Lucky or what!
