A Relaxing Five Days In Malta: Our Itinerary

Malta was a firm choice for our latest holiday for one main reason: it was a Mediterranean destination where we could relax without needing to do a whole lot, but with enough to see a handful of interesting things while we were there. In short, we wanted a lazy trip, but not one where we… Continue reading A Relaxing Five Days In Malta: Our Itinerary

On Paris, And Why Everyone Either Loves It Or Hates It

Paris has always eluded me, in the fact I've been there three times (albeit one of those times was extremely brief) and yet haven't quite found the words to ever write about it on the blog. The main reason is that I can't quite decide how I feel about it, and I can never seem… Continue reading On Paris, And Why Everyone Either Loves It Or Hates It

Staying In Scotland’s Oldest Hotel & Exploring More Of Perthshire

A couple of weeks ago, we headed up to sunny Perthshire to stay in Scotland's oldest inn: the Kenmore Hotel. We stumbled across Kenmore a couple of years ago, perched on the edge of the exceptionally beautiful Loch Tay, and very quickly decided we needed to back and explore the area properly. And what better… Continue reading Staying In Scotland’s Oldest Hotel & Exploring More Of Perthshire

History Lessons, Boats & Beers In Belfast

The great thing about visiting Belfast in a weekend is that there isn't too much to do. I mean that in the best possible sense, because Belfast had enough to pack our time full of great activities, but not so many that I was overwhelmed by which to choose for our short trip, or tempted… Continue reading History Lessons, Boats & Beers In Belfast

What To Expect At The Dog Sled Rally In Aviemore

Yesterday, we went to the final day of the annual dog sled rally in Aviemore; one of the few opportunities to watch sled dogs in action in the UK, and one of the most prestigious events for sled dogs in the country.

We Went To An Ice Cave Inside A Glacier & It Was AMAZING

Without a doubt, my highlight of our Iceland trip was the ice cave tour, which took us inside an actual glacier to see some of the most astonishing colours I will ever see in my life. I've already talked briefly about the tour in my overall Iceland itinerary post, but this is worth an entire… Continue reading We Went To An Ice Cave Inside A Glacier & It Was AMAZING

Planning & Packing For A Winter Iceland Trip

I absolutely love planning trips and creating itineraries for wherever I go - but planning a trip to Iceland in winter was HARD. The limited daylight hours mean you have to meticulously plan what you can see, and the cold weather means you have to pack so much more than, say, a few days in… Continue reading Planning & Packing For A Winter Iceland Trip

The Highs & Lows Of 2021

2021 has been all about peeling ourselves away from the horror show of 2020 and getting back to some semblance of normality, if we can remember what that was. In the past couple of months, I've been to a gig, flown in a plane, and been abroad - all for the first time since 2019!… Continue reading The Highs & Lows Of 2021
