Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: December Update

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! It's been a tough time for a few of my friends, so my thoughts have been with those who struggled over the season, and those who are no longer here to enjoy it. I was thoroughly spoilt this year - Ash bought me a new laptop!! It's a… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: December Update

Exploring the Best Beaches on the Algarve

For some reason, I had never fully considered the Algarve as a top beach destination, but then I rarely regard popular beach destinations at all. But when I was researching where to go for some winter sun, cheap flights were coming up for Portugal and I found some perfect opportunities for volunteering on the coast,… Continue reading Exploring the Best Beaches on the Algarve

Visiting The Algarve: Why You Shouldn’t Skip Faro

I have to admit, I had no idea what I was signing up for when I decided to volunteer in a hostel on the Algarve on Portugal's south coast. Anyone who knows me won't be surprised that I couldn't pass up an opportunity to work in a hostel called Le Penguin, but on further research,… Continue reading Visiting The Algarve: Why You Shouldn’t Skip Faro

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)
