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. […]

My Favourite Travel Buddy

This is S.     If you’ve been on my blog before there’s a 85% chance that you’ve seen his face, and if you haven’t here’s another picture.     Cute, eh?   His real name is Sam, but to be honest I’ve been calling him S on here for such a long time that […]

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 […]

How Lara Croft Helped Me Realise That Representation Matters

On the 8th of this month I wrote a post dedicated to women. (You can find it here if you missed it). 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 […]

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 […]

How My Travel Style Has Evolved

As I sat in traffic on my way to work this morning I couldn’t help but think about how much my travel style has changed over the years. You see, we’re currently in the process of planning a trip for the end of the month (it’s not going so well at the moment, as the […]

Visiting The Ancient Roman Baths, In Bath

Visiting the Ancient Roman Baths in Bath was something I’d wanted to do since I first saw them on a brochure back when I was a child. I’d daydream about diving in them to swim and pretend I was somebody important from the past. So when I discovered that you weren’t actually allowed to bathe […]

A Weekend Trip To Bath

There are times in life, when you just need to take a trip. Lauren (the one below who isn’t me) Agreed and so we decided that on a trip, we shall go! Unfortunately, neither of us had a clue where it was we actually wanted to go, so I did what I always do when I […]

Winchester Day Trip

I’ve lived in England most of life and it was only recently that I went on a day trip to Winchester. I had driven past Winchester numerous times, yet for some reason never stopped in. So one abnormally sunny afternoon, S and I decided to rectify this by going out to see what there was to […]

Off Road Segway Experience

The off road segway experience wasn’t an experience I expected myself to like, yet once I got over the whole ‘balancing’ issue, it was actually pretty fun. I’m a firm believer that when you give gifts they should be one of two things; functional or fun. You see, the functional gifts come in handy – […]

Exploring Cogels Osylei in Zurenborg

Antwerp may be the the city of diamonds and the second biggest harbor of Europe, but for me the real standout point is Cogels Osylei in Zurenborg. Long story short; Cogels Osylei is a street. But bear with me because long story long; Cogels Osylei is a street in Zurenborg that has the most gorgeously […]

Exploring Antwerp Train Station

It’s not often you can walk into a train station and it blows your mind, but Antwerp Train Station did just that. It was the first time that I’ve ever been excited to visit a train station. Especially one I wasn’t getting on a train at. Turns out architecture will do that to a gal. […]

A Last Minute Trip To Antwerp

As my eyes forced themselves through the sheer horror of a 4am wake up call and opened, a massive smile crept across my face. The type of smile that comes from knowing you’ll be in a new country in just a few hours. It was only 12 hours before that I had booked the hotel […]

Things To Do In Carvoeiro

The very first time I went to Portugal, I spent my time worrying that I wouldn’t be able to find things to do in Carvoeiro. After all, I love exploring but whenever you mention a trip to Portugal, you hear about how gorgeous Lisbon, Porto or Albufeira are. Little ol’ Carvoeiro? It’s not mentioned as […]

Carvoeiro Beach: Praia De Paraiso

If you stand at the precipice staring down at Carvoeiro beach, you’ll see it’s an incredibly beautiful sight. But when you look at the sands of Carvoeiro beach you see sunbeds, umbrellas, boats for day trips to the caves and a whole lot of people. Which, when you’re trying to relax, is less than ideal. […]

Carvoeiro To Ferragudo

Ferragudo, like Carvoeiro, was a place I hadn’t really heard of until I was on my way there. After exploring the coastal cliffs of Algar Seco, S and I decided that we wanted to explore further afoot and so we hopped on Carvoeiro’s Land Train to see what lay waiting for us. Carvoeiro’s Land Train departs […]

Walking Along Algar Seco

Algar Seco was one of those walks where you have no idea where you’re heading, but you choose a direction and wander anyway, only to find yourself in a rather beautiful spot. After heading down to Gelados and Companhia for breakfast (crepes if you were wondering – I had ham, S had ham and cheese […]

Travel Gifts For Her That She’ll Use And Love

Regardless of whether she’s your mother, your sister, your girlfriend or your friend I can almost guarantee that finding travel gifts for her is far from the easiest of tasks. I can say this because I am a woman. A woman who hates to play up to stereotypes but also knows how quickly she changes […]

Normandy Omaha Beach

As the gorgeous Miroir D’eau faded into the distance in our rearview mirror, Normandy was soon ahead of us.     I’ve totally skipped the part where we stopped in Nantes overnight in the above sentence, but to be honest except for eating way too much steak, finding a cool hippo cocktail stirrer and buying […]
