MY BUCKET LIST

Updated June 2020: I initially wrote this list about 5 years ago but as time changes, so have my goals - hence the update. A bucket list is basically a list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket. Everyone's is different, and it can include literally anything; whatever is important to … Continue reading MY BUCKET LIST

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

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

BOSTON TO TORONTO| AUTUMN ROAD TRIP

The last post ended with us leaving Boston, on the way to our next stop - Old Orchard Beach. Why Old Orchard Beach? Well, as I mentioned previously, where we ended up staying was picked mostly on a cost basis. Meaning the lower the cost, the more likely it would be that we would stay … Continue reading BOSTON TO TORONTO| AUTUMN ROAD TRIP

BOSTON | AUTUMN ROAD TRIP

On our second day, we woke up in Lenox and did the short drive into Boston (info on the first leg of our journey here). When we looked at accommodation in Boston, we were blown away - it's so, so bloody expensive. As in, hundreds of pounds a night. A NIGHT. I understand in cities, … Continue reading BOSTON | AUTUMN ROAD TRIP

TORONTO TO BOSTON | AUTUMN ROAD TRIP

A week after Hamilton and I moved to Toronto, we made the bold move to leave Toronto. Not because we didn't love it here (we did/still do) but there were bigger plans afoot for the week, an entire season, in fact... Autumn. AKA fall. Ok yeh it was a bit random but it made sense … Continue reading TORONTO TO BOSTON | AUTUMN ROAD TRIP

A SURPRISE CAR | WEEK 1 IN CANADA

So I posted a while back about the fact that Hamilton and I were moving to Canada. Well, little update... We have now moved to Canada. Huge apologies for not mentioning it sooner. I intended on posting a hell of a lot more about the whole thing but somehow didn't manage it. I don't think … Continue reading A SURPRISE CAR | WEEK 1 IN CANADA

DAY 4 | LOIRE VALLEY | WINE TRIP

After drinking all the wine and literally getting the ants out of my pants (check out the last post to understand this suitcase mishap), we left Domain de la Soucherie and continued our wine tour, this time heading to Chateau Bouvet Ladubay, located near Saumur. We got so ridiculously lucky with the weather, considering it … Continue reading DAY 4 | LOIRE VALLEY | WINE TRIP

MADRID – AMSTERDAM

This post is a little different to the usual, as the trip was undertaken for work. It involved driving from Madrid to Amsterdam, stopping off in various cities in between. I won't give a complete run down of the work trip because that is unlikely to help anyone (plus I didn't really see any of … Continue reading MADRID – AMSTERDAM

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
