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

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

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

2018 IS FINALLY HERE

HAPPY 2018 Y'ALL Congratulations to you all for making it through a terrible, terrible year. I won't bother to try to sum up world events as the news was absolutely inescapable and equally unforgivable last year. Waking up and looking at my phone still panics me slightly. On a similarly sad note, this blog is … Continue reading 2018 IS FINALLY HERE

BEST TRAVEL MOMENTS 2015

After yesterday's post you might be wondering if pessimism has got the better of us. Thankfully, it's quite the opposite; 2015 has been pretty damn good to our little circle. To prove it we got together to discuss the BEST moments in our 2015 travels: Hamilton When I was in a small village in the Austrian alps, … Continue reading BEST TRAVEL MOMENTS 2015

END OF THE ROAD | EDINBURGH | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP

Our two final nights were spent in the unique and charming city of Edinburgh.    I'd always wanted to go and in all honesty had no idea how to go about planning our time there. The rest of our road trip in Scotland was mostly spent in rural areas, so I knew a city would … Continue reading END OF THE ROAD | EDINBURGH | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP
