Climbing Stac Pollaidh, One Of Scotland’s Best Hikes

A couple of weeks ago, I climbed a mountain! It's ridiculous that I hadn't done this in so long, given the amount of mountains there are in Scotland and how easy it is to climb some of them. Lockdown has stripped me of all my fitness, so despite deciding I'd start tackling some more munros,… Continue reading Climbing Stac Pollaidh, One Of Scotland’s Best Hikes

It's been a rough, rough, rough winter, having not been allowed to even leave Edinburgh since the beginning of November, almost a full six months ago. Full lockdown hit straight after Christmas, where we have been twiddling our thumbs and going increasingly insane ever since. And… Continue reading Getting Loch-y: A Sunny Day Out In The Trossachs

Glencoe Hikes, Glenfinnan Bridges & Scottish Castles

A few months ago, my friend and I set off on a week-long adventure around Scotland. My friend had wanted to do the North Coast 500 road trip; and being that she had never been to Scotland outside of Edinburgh, I wanted to make sure we hit up some of the highlights of my beautiful… Continue reading Glencoe Hikes, Glenfinnan Bridges & Scottish Castles

Hiking & Heating Up In Kotor, Montenegro

I'm not sure where to start with Kotor - which is probably why it's taken so long for me to write this post! Montenegro was the main reason I went on this trip. Photos of Kotor have captured my attention for a few years, and I was determined to get there before tourism blew up… Continue reading Hiking & Heating Up In Kotor, Montenegro

Hiking Angel’s Landing In Zion National Park

Just over ten years ago, I made my first visit to Zion National Park and managed to miss out on the famed Angel's Landing hike. We had a few options for hiking, and after hearing that one of them would be a four hour hike with lots of terrifying drops and chains, my friend and… Continue reading Hiking Angel’s Landing In Zion National Park

Hello From Canada!

I've been in Vancouver for almost a week - and what a week it's been! It began with a two-day journey with some tough goodbyes, and, in typical Canadian fashion, ended with beautiful mountains and great hospitality. The journey itself wasn't too bad; the flights were pretty good and amazingly all four were on schedule… Continue reading Hello From Canada!

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
