Edinburgh; Mini Guide to a Dog-Friendly Weekend

If you’re a twitter follower of mine you may already be ‘virtually’ acquainted with the new man in my life. No, I haven’t traded my husband in for a trendy new model, instead, we decided to turn two into three and invited a tiny pup into our home, so yup, I’ve become one of those annoying ‘doggy mothers’ […]

Exploring Romania: Impressions of Bucharest

When I booked my flights to Bucharest it was that week that sits just before Christmas. I was bored and frustrated; I hadn’t managed to secure a December break, and I was panicking slightly that I was teetering on the brink of 2017 and I had nothing to look forward to.

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!).

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 […]

After a four day visit to Berlin last year, and as (hopefully!) an older and wiser traveller and second-tripper, I was mindful to choose my accommodation more carefully this time around.

So, who’s been dreaming of their perfect wedding since they could walk?

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 […]
