Thinking About The Future: 10 Trips I Want To Take

Having been stuck indoors for the past two months, our Japan trip cruelly ripped out from beneath us days before our departure date, to say I'm getting itchy feet is a massive understatement. For a while, I couldn't think about travel. For one thing, we were focused on our wedding and putting contingency plans in… Continue reading Thinking About The Future: 10 Trips I Want To Take

Photo Friday: Glasgow Street Art & Mural Trail

It's been a while since I did a Photo Friday post, and it's been hard to build up the motivation to look through travel photos when we don't know when we'll ever be able to travel again, let alone with everything that has been going on in our lives personally.

14 Things To Do While You’re Self-Isolating

A hell of a lot has changed this week, huh? We've gone from most-things-as-normal to everybody-stay-at-home in the space of a few days. Any other time, any other year, I wouldn't have really minded. As of yesterday, pubs and restaurants are shut in the UK, but I can live with that. Working from home? Fine… Continue reading 14 Things To Do While You’re Self-Isolating

A Camping Guide To The North Coast 500 In Scotland

A few months ago, my friend and I set off on a week-long adventure around Scotland, with a focus on the famous North Coast 500 route. We were doing it all on a budget, which meant taking my car and camping in a tent as we went. Luckily, camping in Scotland is made even easier… Continue reading A Camping Guide To The North Coast 500 In Scotland
