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

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?!

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

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

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

7 Coastal Walks In Orkney You Need To Take

2017 is the year I've dedicated to exploring home. We are lucky in Orkney to have so much history, loads of islands, and possibly my favourite part: lots of coastal walks. I was starting to realise that the sheer number of walks on our little Scottish island that involve stunning cliffs and rugged coastal scenery… Continue reading 7 Coastal Walks In Orkney You Need To Take

Taking All Of The Trains & Trams On The Isle Of Man

We decided to spend our final day on the Isle Of Man being the ultimate tourists: we were taking the electric railway north! And then the electric tram up Snaefell mountain! And then, back in Douglas, taking the horse-drawn tram along the promenade! And then... taking the steam train south! And in the middle of… Continue reading Taking All Of The Trains & Trams On The Isle Of Man

A Day Road Tripping The Isle Of Man

If there was one fantastic decision we made on this trip, it was to take the car. I mean that for all aspects of the trip, but one part we were most looking forward to was exploring Ash's "home town" of the Isle Of Man. I had visited the IoM once before, a few years… Continue reading A Day Road Tripping The Isle Of Man

A Castle & A Cathedral: Exploring Scotland As We Pass Through

The first part of our Scotland & Isle Of Man trip had begun: we had just spent a night in Nairn, a small town near Inverness, and we now had a full day ahead to get down to Heysham in northern England to catch an absurdly-timed ferry at 2am to the Isle Of Man. We started the day having no… Continue reading A Castle & A Cathedral: Exploring Scotland As We Pass Through
