2019: My Year In Review

2019 has been all about the next huge step of our lives. It's been about accepting the end of long-term travel adventures and embracing the new adventure of finding our forever home. For us, it was always going to be Edinburgh. We've been low-key planning to move to Edinburgh for pretty much the past decade… Continue reading 2019: My Year In Review

A Decade Of Travel And How Things Have Changed

Ten years ago, I was a fresh-faced 20-year-old with a hell of a lot ahead of me. In some ways, it feels like that was a lifetime ago; in others, I can't believe it's been a decade. There's no denying that a lot has changed in the past ten years. I've learned a lot about… Continue reading A Decade Of Travel And How Things Have Changed

A Festive Weekend In York

York is one of those wonderfully quintessential English cities that manages to capture the imagination in a way that, to be honest, not many English cities do. We first visited in 2017 for a couple of hours, and again this summer for a couple of hours. Seeing a pattern? Us too, and it needed to… Continue reading A Festive Weekend In York

Bloggers quickly began gushing about the experiences they'd had in someone's home, and soon all… Continue reading I’ve Still Never Used Airbnb – Here’s Why

A Day Wandering Beautiful Vienna

When I think of visiting Austria, I don't necessarily think of Vienna. I think of Salzburg and the Sound Of Music, or the Alpine city of Innsbruck, or more recently, the phenomenally pretty town of Hallstatt (if you don't know it, I suggest you google it immediately). Meanwhile, my mum, as seldom as she ever… Continue reading A Day Wandering Beautiful Vienna

I Didn’t Expect Bratislava To Be So Pretty

A couple of months before I found myself taking a detour through Bratislava on my way home from the Balkans, I watched EuroTrip for the first time. If you haven't seen this totally ridiculous, slapstick stupid American comedy, what were you even doing in the 00's? Me? I was listening to Scotty Doesn't Know, but… Continue reading I Didn’t Expect Bratislava To Be So Pretty
