Being a Bride in Iceland: Our Destination Wedding

It feels surreal to have my wedding dress hung up in our wardrobe. It’s actually tattered beyond understanding and still has remnants of Icelandic volcanic beach, grass, mud and flecks of what I (sort of) hope is my own blood clinging to the hem of a formerly spotless frock. It was only a short few […]

Review: Purple Parking Meet and Greet at London Luton Airport

I’m a fairly organised gal; I like spending weeks planning my breaks almost as much as actually being there (…almost!). I like trawling through TripAdvisor to find the best budget restaurants, clicking through Hotel price comparison websites so make sure I’m confident I’ve bagged a bargain, spending hours on Twitter, following hashtags, finding bloggers’ guides, […]

The Blue Lagoon and beyond: Iceland’s geothermal pools.

If you were to ask me what my favourite thing about Iceland was, wallowing in a Geothermal pool would certainly pip my top three. These naturally heated pools are said have health benefits and are a great social activity; a core part of Icelandic culture, and honestly, have you even ‘done‘ Iceland if you didn’t at least tick off […]

I’ll try not to make this blog post sound like a love letter to Iceland, but in all honesty, I left my heart here on my first trip out here in 2014 and uh, I’ve been desperately lovesick ever since. Sometimes you see too much of something and you become immune to it. But Iceland? This […]

Travel Fail! What happens when Airbnb goes wrong?

The moment is here! I’d been planning these seven days for months on end; booked the flights as soon as they were released, scored an awesome Airbnb deal by reserving my dates months in advance, firmed up a kick-ass ‘Best of Iceland’ itinerary with whale watching, Geothermal Spas and self-drive tours… Hell, there’s no such […]

How To Spend Four Days In Brussels; Why I Love This City!

Brussels; known for being the city at the heart of the European Union and the best place in Europe for a beer. But what else is there to this Belgian capital and why should you be booking a visit here? This is actually a second trip for me. I’d previously visited Brussels in October as a […]

Four Hours in Vienna; How I Spent Just One Day in the Austrian Capital

‘One day? Just the one day?!’ When asking advice on what to see and do in Vienna, many could hardly contain their surprise at the lack of time I was allocating to explore this Austrian City. I admit, four or five hours is not ideal, but I remind people that with a full-time job back in London, […]

Bratislava: Guide To A Weekend in Slovakia

I’d been toying with the idea of a trip over to Bratislava for a few months now, despite knowing very little about the capital of Slovakia. After some half-hearted google searches that didn’t amount to much, I wondered why I was so fixated in wanting to visit. Uninspired, I turned to my trusty girl gang of travel […]

8 Reasons Why I’ll Always Return To Iceland

When you’re gripped with the insatiable urge to see the whole world, it’s incredibly rare to want to be revisiting a place you’ve already been to. Don’t get me wrong, everywhere I’ve been I’ve been utterly enthralled by; just simply being somewhere new and different causes the heart to do somersaults. But some places just […]

13 Ways To Stay Safe (And Sane!) On Your Travels

There’s enough drama in life without fretting over your travels as well. If you’re anything like me, you’re slaving through the 9-5, so when you do end up jumping on a plane, the last thing you want to be doing in tearing your hair out over the small stuff, or ending up in the middle of a […]

Travel is addictive, you know it, I know it.

And we let it; […]

Discovering Croatia: A Week in Split.

You haven’t been to Croatia? Who hasn’t been to Croatia? Me apparently. And it seemed like anyone who’s anyone was hopping on a plane headed to the Adriatics. I think it was time to see what I was missing. We plumped for Split over Dubrovnik, partially due to flight costs but more importantly because we […]

How To Spend A Long Weekend In Budapest

Booking up for Budapest sort of happened on a bit of whim. It was one of those places I’d seen the Instagram posts of the Parliament Building… and uh yeah, that was about it! But anyway, we’d found a couple of cheap flights so it was good chance to see what Hungary has to offer this […]
