24 Hours In Lisbon: Falling In Love With Portugal’s Capital

I'm afraid I have to admit to you guys that I've started this post off with a lie: I didn't spend 24 hours in Lisbon. I barely spent 22. This is a shame though, because the rest of the title is not a lie; I really did fall in love with Portugal's capital, and have… Continue reading 24 Hours In Lisbon: Falling In Love With Portugal’s Capital

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: November Update

When I flew out to Portugal, I planned to relax, which meant having time to write, read and stay caught up. Haaahahaha, how wrong was I?! When I travel, I make the most of it, and that means keeping my laptop in its case for the majority of it. As well as utilising almost every… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: November Update

A Romantic Mother/Daughter Break To… Venice?!

A few weeks ago, I found myself with a spare month in which I could do whatever I liked. As some of you know, I finished my job in the hostel at the beginning of October, and with an imminent winter starting in Scotland, my first plan was naturally to travel and find some sun… Continue reading A Romantic Mother/Daughter Break To… Venice?!

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: October Update

Hello from PORTUGAL! How's your November going? Mine's been pretty full-on, hence posting this nine days late. I've already been to five cities across three countries, celebrated bonfire night, and somehow found time to be bed-ridden ill for a couple of days, too. And if you think that's mad, you should have seen my October.… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: October Update

Scotland Road Trip Days 4 & 5: Finding Nessie, Inverness, Castles & Floods

I've got to be honest with you right now: I've always hated the Loch Ness monster. I don't know if it's because I kind of grew up with it, knowing that all these tourists come to see something that isn't even there, and it's all lost its novelty. Maybe it's because Scotland has so much… Continue reading Scotland Road Trip Days 4 & 5: Finding Nessie, Inverness, Castles & Floods

Scotland Road Trip Day 3: Glencoe to Loch Ness Via The Hogwarts Express

Alright, I'm seriously lagging behind on these Scotland road trip posts, aren't I?! I promise to catch up before I go to Venice in a few days - it'll be the first time I've travelled abroad in over a year, which is absolutely ridiculous. Really living up to your name there, Clazz. It's okay though… Continue reading Scotland Road Trip Day 3: Glencoe to Loch Ness Via The Hogwarts Express

My Top 5 Places In Thailand (And 5 Places For Next Time)

It's been a while since I wrote about Thailand, but it's one of the countries from our travels I'm always thinking about and wistfully yearning to return to. I realised recently that although I wrote a highlights post for South East Asia in general, I never wrote one specifically for Thailand, despite it being one… Continue reading My Top 5 Places In Thailand (And 5 Places For Next Time)

Scotland Road Trip Day 2: A Sunny Loch Lomond to… A Rainy Glencoe

Our luck with the weather improved on our second day of the Scotland road trip. For a whole twenty minutes. Luckily, those twenty minutes coincided with exactly the time we stopped in the gorgeous lochside village of Luss. In fact, all day the rain stopped and started at the right times, so in some ways… Continue reading Scotland Road Trip Day 2: A Sunny Loch Lomond to… A Rainy Glencoe

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: September Update

Good morning and happy weekend, everyone! Well, that's it. I'm officially unemployed (sort of). And it had nothing to do with my tweet last week about working with a hangover, although that was pretty horrendous. But it's the end of the season, which means the hostel is closing for the winter and I'm out of… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: September Update

Scotland Road Trip Day 1: Glasgow to A Rainy Loch Lomond

We arrived, as usual, fashionably late into Glasgow. Our ferry into Liverpool from the Isle Of Man arrived right on time at 10am, and we planned to whizz up to Glasgow by lunchtime. Instead, we spent almost an hour in Liverpool trying to navigate endless roadworks and diversions right until we hit the M6, before having… Continue reading Scotland Road Trip Day 1: Glasgow to A Rainy Loch Lomond
