Roman Colosseum

You can’t picture Rome without the Colosseum. Tall, magnificent and steeped in history both culturally and visually. The Colosseum has been in films, music videos and fashion shows so the Colosseum, otherwise known as Colosseo, is quite the monument! It’s iconic. So it was a must that when S and I flew to Rome, that […]

Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

Visiting the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill was something which occurred, somewhat, by accident. There we were roaming around, as one does whilst in Rome, when we came across the stairs to the Capitoline Museums. You see, whenever we travel S and I have a tendency to want to see certain areas and attractions, but […]

Trying Cannoli In Rome

Sampling my first cannoli in Rome was a messy experience. Ok, so technically I ate cannolo because I only ate one. But before we get to that, let’s rewind a little. I remember reading a post by Adventurous Kate a few years ago. I couldn’t tell you what the post was about, only that she […]

The Spanish Steps

Sitting on the Spanish steps in Rome, I couldn’t help but think about how steps can be such a key component to a story. They’re such an unassuming object, yet stairs can hold such significant meaning. When I was younger I would tip-toe down the stairs every December and perch just a few stairs up, listening to […]

Halnaker Windmill, Chichester.

Halnaker Windmill is a spot that’s very much a local’s spot. Every day you’ll find dog walkers, Sunday strollers and avid photographers all venturing out to walk through the famous tree tunnel, and up to enjoy Halnaker Windmill and the panoramic views across Chichester which surround it. Although, in Autumn and winter it’s definitely advisable […]

Wylds Farm – Picking Our Christmas Tree!

Wylds Farm in Liss is a place where you can pick, cut and buy your own Christmas Tree. I stumbled across Wylds Farm whilst browsing Instagram‘s location feature last year, and after taking a trip to discover whats-what and coming home with a Christmas tree, I had a feeling it would end up becoming a […]

Trevi Fountain Rome

Visiting the Trevi Fountain in Rome kind of feels like a right of passage when visiting Italy. I mean everybody’s done it, and because of that, it means you should too, right? RIGHT. But the thing you should know when visiting the Trevi Fountain in Rome is that you won’t be alone. Those Instagram pictures […]

Eating At Bonci Pizzarium

Bonci Pizzarium was a place I discovered thanks to the taste buds of one of my favourite foodies: Nikki. Nikki’s blog and taste buds have guided me in many of my city adventures, and Italy was no different. The minute I announced that S and I were heading to Rome, notifications popped up with recommendations […]

Visiting The Pantheon In Rome

Visiting the Pantheon in Rome was something that happened by accident.   You see, I do this thing where I don’t really research places I’m going to. I’ll have a brief look at the weather so I know what to pack, put out a few messages to foodie friends to see if there are any […]

Come il Latte – Rome’s Best Gelato?

Come il Latte was a place I discovered by accident. And “by accident” I mean it was a place I purposely sniffed out after sensing the sweet, sweet smell of freshly made waffle cones. You see, after arriving in Italy there was only one thing I wanted to do: eat. S and I had purposely […]

Last Minute Trip To Italy

Booking a last minute trip to Italy is pretty much my definition of fun. Well. Booking trips, in general, is my idea of fun—but last minute trips are that much more exciting and spontaneous. They can sometimes leave you in a bit of a tizzle if you don’t leave more than a few hours between booking a trip […]

Best Travel Deal Websites For Last Minute Trips

Finding the best travel deal websites can be a total pain in the ass sometimes. So many travel deal websites claim to offer last-minute trips, but in reality, don’t. They’re more… “last few weeks” rather than last minute, and when you only have a few days before you plan to go away, that isn’t very […]

Cobnor: Picnics and Perfect Weather

Cobnor is exactly the type of place I needed to just “be”. A place where I could be alone with my thoughts, with the sun on my skin and S by my side. A place with snacks (obviously, because seriously who leaves the house without them?) Only in this instance snacks got upgraded into a […]

Are Last Minute Deals Dead?

It’s not often that I find myself with ten days off and no plans. Usually my locations are thought out with the places I want to see, go to and eat at. But when I discovered I had miscalculated my holiday allowance and had four days of holiday left to use I found myself in […]

Picking The Right Travel Insurance Policy

Buying a travel insurance policy is one of those things that so many people forget about until it’s too late. A travel insurance policy is one of those things that doesn’t cross your mind until your luggage is lost, your flight cancelled or you’ve hurt yourself and are faced with extortionate medical costs. A travel […]

My Favourite Travel Blogs

Travel bloggers. There’s an abundance of them, with more joining this little keyboard club everyday. An abundance of stories, pictures and unique perspectives just waiting to be discovered. I’m currently sat in bed with a bit of a headache perusing Bloglovin; catching up on where people have been in the world. It’s like my very own desktop […]

Recognising Travel Privilege

I love blogging, I love travelling – so the fact that travel blogging exists makes my heart incredibly happy. I’m able to read about adventures from all of the metaphorical corners of the globe, whilst sitting in my blanket with a cup of English Breakfast Tea. I’m able to discover people’s stories and learn about […]

Appreciating The Familiar

My car turned along the winding roads with the landscape above my steering wheel turning from leafy greens to a dusty pink. As the trees broke you could see the sun was beginning the process of setting and as I glanced upwards I could see Chichester Cathedral in the distance. Beneath the cathedral, were fields. […]

How To Dress For English Weather

You’d think that living in England would make me somewhat of an expert when it comes to dressing for the weather. Buuuuut you’d be wrong. You see, English weather is incredibly unpredictable and as a result nobody really knows what to wear. To be honest I, along with a ton of other people I’m sure, would quite […]

Representation Matters

I recently wrote a post dedicated to women and in that post, I mentioned that I didn’t really have a role model growing up. My exact words were: “I didn’t grow up with any female role models. The closest thing I had was Lara Croft, but to be honest she was a rich adventuring woman whose […]

My Ultimate Road Trip Playlist

The ultimate road trip playlist will vary from person to person, but for me; it’s a collection of all of the old time favourites that make me smile. A collection of the music that I wish I didn’t know the words to, the music which makes me happy enough to bop along in my chair […]
