MY TOP 10 EUROPEAN CITIES

Updated May 2020 It took me a long time to compile this list simply because I kept disagreeing with myself. I planned a top ten then contemplated making it longer, to fit in the other places that definitely do warrant a mention but sadly don’t quite make it (in my eyes). Of course, there’s plenty … Continue reading MY TOP 10 EUROPEAN CITIES

MY HAND LUGGAGE ESSENTIALS

When it comes for paying for luggage on a short haul flight, unless I'm going to the arctic, I avoid it like the plague. Yes, airlines are getting more and more restrictive but I like the challenge. Of course, if you're going for an extended period of time, yes you will need more clothing etc … Continue reading MY HAND LUGGAGE ESSENTIALS

NEW ENGLAND AUTUMN ROAD TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

Boston I’ve been to Chicago, New York, Washington DC, Nashville… Basically a bunch of US cities in the east, but until this road trip I had never made it to Boston. It’s been on my list for a while so I was very excited to finally go. This may seem like a bit of a … Continue reading NEW ENGLAND AUTUMN ROAD TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

A FEW DEVON DAYS | WEEKEND WANDERING

A few months again, I wrote this post about a trip down to Devon with my boyfriend to visit his family. It was such a nice weekend, that we decided to use some holiday days to go down there again (this time joined by my dog, Bonnie). It always feels a little bit funny writing … Continue reading A FEW DEVON DAYS | WEEKEND WANDERING

OVERVIEW | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

In April of this year, my friend Hamilton and I went on a road trip around Latvia and Estonia (well one place in Latvia and a bunch of places in Estonia). I've done individual posts on each day of the trip but figured it might be helpful to do an overview of the entire route. … Continue reading OVERVIEW | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

MY TOP 5 LONDON EATS (AT THE MOMENT)

London has an amazingly varied selection of cafes and restaurants - you could eat at a different place every day and not have to repeat yourself. Amazingly though, this is something that I often find myself doing. Apparently its not only old habits that die hard. These are a few places I really like: Dishoom … Continue reading MY TOP 5 LONDON EATS (AT THE MOMENT)

CHIHUAHUA CAFE | EDINBURGH | WEEKEND WANDERING

Usually I love the train journey up to Edinburgh - its about 5.5 hours long but it gives me time to write, read and watch tv in comfortable, warm seats. Usually moments when I get to do these things are slotted in in between stressful ones and are therefore very rarely dedicated just to this; … Continue reading CHIHUAHUA CAFE | EDINBURGH | WEEKEND WANDERING

BEER AND BEACHES | DEVON | WEEKEND WANDERING

A few weeks back (when it was still pretty damn chilly), I went with my boyfriend, Fred to visit his parents down in Devon. He grew up there and absolutely loves it, so I'd heard a lot about it. I'd been down to that area of the country before (to Cornwall) but never to his … Continue reading BEER AND BEACHES | DEVON | WEEKEND WANDERING

VANCOUVER ISLAND | PLANES AND WHALES | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

That's right. Canadian Road Trip TWENTY SIXTEEN. Sorry to have ever so slightly dropped off the edge of the earth. Sadly I don't have any kind of wilderness survival story that stopped me from writing; I haven't trekked through the Himalayas or canoed down the Amazon. Instead, I got a new job. A job where I … Continue reading VANCOUVER ISLAND | PLANES AND WHALES | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

LAKE LOUISE TO KAMLOOPS | ROCKY MOUNTAINEER | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

Part of the reason I had wanted to do a complete cross country journey, was to travel over the Rocky Mountains. What better way to do it, than by train?   https://www.instagram.com/p/BE4ts7SELXl/?taken-by=travelteatv   We woke up bright and early in our hotel, The Lake Louise Inn, got ourselves up and ready, then simply walked outside … Continue reading LAKE LOUISE TO KAMLOOPS | ROCKY MOUNTAINEER | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016
