What To Do In Liverpool On A Monday

Whenever I think of a blog post title in advance of actually doing the trip, nothing ever goes to plan (see: A Perfect Weekend In Perthshire, which was far from perfect). In this case, I had come up with the satisfyingly alliterated A Day At The Docks: A Layover In Liverpool, which would involve a… Continue reading What To Do In Liverpool On A Monday


Glasgow: Scotland’s “Second City” That Shouldn’t Be Missed

When it comes to Scottish cities, it seems like Glasgow often falls to the wayside in favour of Scotland's capital, Edinburgh. To be honest with you (and this will come as no surprise), I do prefer Edinburgh; after all, I live here after years of yearning to move to the city. But it's not to… Continue reading Glasgow: Scotland’s “Second City” That Shouldn’t Be Missed


Why I Love Vancouver

It's no secret that I love Vancouver and feel extremely blessed to be living in one of the best cities in the world. So I've been thinking a lot about what makes Vancouver so great. It took me five days in 2016 to decide that I wanted to live here (actually, I think I made… Continue reading Why I Love Vancouver


My Top 10 Things To Do In Vancouver

As some of you know, I was recently invited to take part in all that Vancouver has to offer its tourists (along with everyone else in Vancouver who also works in the tourism industry - so let's not pretend I'm special!). Most of these things I probably wouldn't have done on my own, or would… Continue reading My Top 10 Things To Do In Vancouver


A Day In Beautiful Seville, Spain

While I was on the Algarve, I kept hearing the same things over and over again: Seville is AMAZING. To be honest, I have never really "got" Spain from my previous trips to Barcelona and the border towns by Gibraltar, but everyone was telling me that Seville was beautiful and absolutely worth visiting. On my… Continue reading A Day In Beautiful Seville, Spain

My Highlights Of Edinburgh

There's just something about Edinburgh. I can't quite put my finger on it. I don't know if it's the beautiful buildings on every street, or the cobblestone streets that instantly add character, or the wild and raw history of the city, or the wonderfully friendly people, or the atmospheric suburbs, or the endless things to… Continue reading My Highlights Of Edinburgh


Falling In Love With Vancouver (and Tim Hortons!)

I had high hopes for Vancouver, and that worried me. Because it's often the places you think you'll fall in love with that disappoint you, and the ones you have no preconceptions of are the ones that surprise you. I didn't need to worry. I fell for Vancouver, hard. Canada was the beginning of the… Continue reading Falling In Love With Vancouver (and Tim Hortons!)

Christchurch: A City Rebuilding Itself

After an incredible journey from Wellington, the ferry to Picton taking us through some stunning scenery and the bus traipsing steadily between the mountains and the wild coast, we didn't expect a lot from Christchurch. After all, this is a city still rebuilding itself from tragic earthquakes, and we weren't sure what to expect at… Continue reading Christchurch: A City Rebuilding Itself

I’m Sorry Auckland, But I Don’t Really Like You

Auckland was our first stop of our New Zealand trip, and I have to admit... I'm not a huge fan. I can't help it. I can't fall in love with every place we visit, but that's okay. As we flew over the city and came into land, my jaw dropped. I had no idea how… Continue reading I’m Sorry Auckland, But I Don’t Really Like You
