Next week I’m fulfilling one of my biggest travel dreams and travelling to India! I’m travelling with my mum, who’s wanted to go to India ever since she was a little girl and I guess her enthusiasm for India has definitely rubbed off on me. We’ve got LOADS planned for during our trip to make the most of our time there.
I was lucky enough to spend a long weekend at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival and got the chance to go to some incredible shows during my time there. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world and has been running since 1947. It’s one of 12 major festivals that occur in the city every single year. It’s safe to say Edinburgh likes a party!
I took an epic road trip last week from my home in the west of Scotland all the way down to the South Downs National Park in Hampshire, almost at the very bottom of England. The purpose of this almost 1,000 mile round trip was for a short break at an adorable cottage in one of the most idyllic locations I’ve ever been lucky enough to experience.
Taking the exit from the motorway and finding ourselves quickly surrounded by rolling green hills and endless fields was a welcome break from the miles of grey motorway that we had endured to reach this point. As we began to drive past rustic cottages with thatched roofs and charming country pubs we quickly knew that the long drive had been more than worth it. And we hadn’t even reached Goldridge Cottage yet.
Who doesn’t love a good road trip?! Getting in the car with a long drive planned and some new adventures ahead of you is exciting. I’ve just come to the end of a road trip of almost 1,000 miles from my home in Scotland down to the South Downs National Park at the bottom of England and back again and want to share my top road trip tips for a fun and safe experience!
Yeah, I’d like to do a road trip in a Ferrari. Sigh.
I travelled to six different countries in June, and subsequently many of the places I visited were a bit of a blur. One of the places that stood out for all the right reasons was the Montenegrin city of Kotor, and the stunning bay which is sits at the head of.
I wasn’t really sure what to expect before visiting Malta. I knew that this little island was previously under the rule of the British and lies almost as close to Africa as it does to the rest of Europe and it gets ridiculously hot in the summer months. Other than that I didn’t really know much about it, so I didn’t really expect too much.
What I hadn’t counted on was friendly people, beautiful breathtaking views, fascinating ancient sites, British touches and an overwhelmingly relaxed pace of life.
