Hello From Canada!

I've been in Vancouver for almost a week - and what a week it's been! It began with a two-day journey with some tough goodbyes, and, in typical Canadian fashion, ended with beautiful mountains and great hospitality. The journey itself wasn't too bad; the flights were pretty good and amazingly all four were on schedule… Continue reading Hello From Canada!

Taking Time Out Isn’t Always A Bad Thing

It's a beautiful day outside, and here I am sat in my living room with no intention of going out. Say whaaaaaat? I'm sure most people would think, "yeah, so what?" rather than "say what" but if you know anything about me, it's that I'm not very good at doing nothing. But of course I'm… Continue reading Taking Time Out Isn’t Always A Bad Thing

50 Photos To Make You Want To Visit Orkney

Oh, Orkney. While visitors to these remote islands in Scotland are rapidly increasing year on year, in the online travel circles and particularly the blogging world, my home island of Orkney remains seriously overlooked. And yet I don't understand why. Is it because we don't have Instagrammable mountains? Is it because our beaches aren't quite… Continue reading 50 Photos To Make You Want To Visit Orkney

Making Decisions On What Travel Is Right For You

I'm going through a dilemma right now. It sounds ridiculous, and for me it feels like the biggest first world problem I've ever had, but I'm getting stressed out and cannot for the life of me decide what to do - or where to go - next. I never had my heart set on living… Continue reading Making Decisions On What Travel Is Right For You

5 Mistakes I Made In Australia (& How You Can Avoid Them)

There are some posts for this blog that have been sitting in my drafts folder for over a year. It's not just because I've lacked the inspiration for writing them; it's because, for posts like this, I feel like an idiot traveller. An idiot abroad, if you will, which is actually what this blog was… Continue reading 5 Mistakes I Made In Australia (& How You Can Avoid Them)

A Day In Beautiful Seville, Spain

While I was on the Algarve, I kept hearing the same things over and over again: Seville is AMAZING. To be honest, I have never really "got" Spain from my previous trips to Barcelona and the border towns by Gibraltar, but everyone was telling me that Seville was beautiful and absolutely worth visiting. On my… Continue reading A Day In Beautiful Seville, Spain

2017 In Review: Challenges, Travel, Home & Blogging

2017 has been a funny one for me. I spent 10 months doing less travelling than I've done since I began travelling, but exploring lots of my own home and the UK, before suddenly visiting 3 countries in less than a month. But although travel hasn't been my number one priority this year, I've kept… Continue reading 2017 In Review: Challenges, Travel, Home & Blogging

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: December Update

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! It's been a tough time for a few of my friends, so my thoughts have been with those who struggled over the season, and those who are no longer here to enjoy it. I was thoroughly spoilt this year - Ash bought me a new laptop!! It's a… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: December Update

Exploring the Best Beaches on the Algarve

For some reason, I had never fully considered the Algarve as a top beach destination, but then I rarely regard popular beach destinations at all. But when I was researching where to go for some winter sun, cheap flights were coming up for Portugal and I found some perfect opportunities for volunteering on the coast,… Continue reading Exploring the Best Beaches on the Algarve

Visiting The Algarve: Why You Shouldn’t Skip Faro

I have to admit, I had no idea what I was signing up for when I decided to volunteer in a hostel on the Algarve on Portugal's south coast. Anyone who knows me won't be surprised that I couldn't pass up an opportunity to work in a hostel called Le Penguin, but on further research,… Continue reading Visiting The Algarve: Why You Shouldn’t Skip Faro
