Scottish Road Trip on a Budget| Part 3 | John O’Groats

The final part of our road trip landed us literally, at the end of the road. John O'Groats is the most Northernly inhabited place in the UK/Scotland and we stayed there for our two last nights before returning to London. LAIRG We drove up to John O'Groats from our little cottage just outside Inverness, stopping … Continue reading Scottish Road Trip on a Budget| Part 3 | John O’Groats

May Favourites

As to be expected, this May has been different than any other May on record. We all know why, so I'm not going to get into that instead I'm going to focus on the things that have been keeping me occupied during this very weird time. If you're looking for some inspiration or just fancy … Continue reading May Favourites

Scottish Road Trip on a Budget | Part 2 | Glencoe and Glenfinnan Viaduct

Following on from the last post, in which we travelled from London to Edinburgh, then up to Inverness - at this point in the journey we were staying just outside Inverness at Balnagown Estates.  We stayed there for two nights, using it as a base to explore Scotland and honestly, it was the best decision … Continue reading Scottish Road Trip on a Budget | Part 2 | Glencoe and Glenfinnan Viaduct

7 THINGS I’VE ENJOYED (AT HOME) THIS WEEK | POST 8

This week we've been blessed with good weather, which has been incredible. It's amazing how much sunny weather can lift your mood (even if like me, you can only spend a couple of hours in the sun before it all becomes too much). It's been lovely going for walks in the sunshine without a jacket, … Continue reading 7 THINGS I’VE ENJOYED (AT HOME) THIS WEEK | POST 8

Scottish Road Trip on a Budget | Part 1 | Edinburgh to Inverness

A few years back my parents and I undertook a mammoth road trip around Scotland - it was incredible, but looking back we endeavoured to take in a bit too much in the time we had, meaning we didn't get to spend much time in each place. So this time, when my boyfriend and I … Continue reading Scottish Road Trip on a Budget | Part 1 | Edinburgh to Inverness

7 THINGS I’VE ENJOYED (AT HOME) THIS WEEK | POST 7

Here in the UK lockdown has been eased ever so slightly but I am continuing as I was before; only leaving the house for exercise and to get food shopping. There are lots of obvious things I miss - seeing my family (and my dog), holidays, going to the pub etc but I'm also thinking … Continue reading 7 THINGS I’VE ENJOYED (AT HOME) THIS WEEK | POST 7

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

7 THINGS I’VE ENJOYED (AT HOME) THIS WEEK | POST 6

This week weirdly, has been my most productive during lockdown and I have no idea why. I've been writing a daily to do list throughout this time and generally getting a lot done, but this week I've had most stuff done by lunchtime. It's been nice ticking things off although it's meant I'm often still … Continue reading 7 THINGS I’VE ENJOYED (AT HOME) THIS WEEK | POST 6

Dog Friendly Cornwall

In my experience, Cornwall is extremely dog friendly and you should have no problem taking your dog out and about with you. Of course, please always keep your dog controlled on a lead (and be wary of others - not everyone likes dogs), always pick up after your dog and bring water/food with you, especially … Continue reading Dog Friendly Cornwall

7 THINGS I’VE ENJOYED (AT HOME) THIS WEEK | POST 5

That's right, the lockdown continues and therefore, so do my posts on the little things that have been making me happy recently. Part of me has been wanting to put 'writing these posts' in this but that seems a bit contrived - though it genuinely has been lovely sitting down and taking a step back … Continue reading 7 THINGS I’VE ENJOYED (AT HOME) THIS WEEK | POST 5
