A Getaway In Galway, Ireland’s Colourful City

I felt an overwhelming sense of calm as we made our way across Ireland to the charming city of Galway. I knew I'd made the right decision - instead of a day over in Dublin, I'd planned out a full weekend to include Galway, too. The nice thing about Galway was that I had nothing… Continue reading A Getaway In Galway, Ireland’s Colourful City

A Day In Dublin: How To Have Fun When You Don’t Like Guinness

Earlier this month, I finally made it to Ireland! It seems crazy that after jetting off all over the world, I have only just set foot on our neighbouring isle for the first time. I have to admit - I wasn't sure what to expect from Dublin, but it was definitely a city that took… Continue reading A Day In Dublin: How To Have Fun When You Don’t Like Guinness

Off-Beat London: A Quirky Weekend In The Capital

A few weeks ago, we jetted off to London for a weekend for the first time ever. It sounds stupid saying it like that; I've been to London more times than I can count (I would guess in the region of 60), yet I'd never spent the night there, and I've rarely seen it before… Continue reading Off-Beat London: A Quirky Weekend In The Capital

Beltane Fire Festival: A Unique Experience In Edinburgh

The first time I heard of Beltane Fire Festival, whenever that was, I knew I needed to go. It sounded crazy, fun, and most of all, unique. So when we moved to Edinburgh, Beltane went straight onto my list of things I needed to do this year. The thing is, I had no idea what… Continue reading Beltane Fire Festival: A Unique Experience In Edinburgh

My Top 10 Favourite Cities

As an island girl who was raised on a farm and rarely visited anywhere larger than Aberdeen as a child, I'm not much of a city person. Things have clearly changed, given that I've lived in two cities in the past year, but still - give me a mountain or island any day, or even… Continue reading My Top 10 Favourite Cities

10 Countries I Want To Go Back To

I've been reminiscing a lot recently. I've also been looking forward to the next few months, and the realisation that I'll be 30 at the beginning of next year made me think of my gradually-forgotten goal of visiting 30 countries, which I assumed would be long reached by now. The truth is, I stopped country-counting… Continue reading 10 Countries I Want To Go Back To
