Camping & Castles: An Aberdeenshire Adventure

All throughout lockdown, I was jonesing for one type of trip in particular: a camping trip. I just wanted to park up near a loch or the bottom of a mountain and take our tent into the middle of nowhere and just be away from it all. I've always been a "west coast is best… Continue reading Camping & Castles: An Aberdeenshire Adventure

Exploring The Cute Coastal Towns Of Fife, Scotland

Considering I've now lived across the bridge from Fife for over eighteen months, I've seen very little of my neighbouring county. The Kingdom Of Fife. It sounds so grand, doesn't it? Truthfully, Fife has never really piqued my interest in the way that other places around Scotland have. Until last year, I don't think I'd… Continue reading Exploring The Cute Coastal Towns Of Fife, Scotland

August Adventures: Islands, Cities & A Failed Camping Trip

July was a busy month after being in lockdown for so long - but I think August may just have been even busier! We've had friends to visit, we've taken trips to other cities, we've been on a train for the first time since January, and we've even been on a tour (a boat tour,… Continue reading August Adventures: Islands, Cities & A Failed Camping Trip

Post-Lockdown Adventures: 4 Weekend Trips In Scotland

After more than three months in lockdown, Scotland finally lifted their five mile travel limit at the beginning of July. Naturally, the first day we could go out, we went straight out to nature, and subsequently spent four weekends in a row roaring our way around some of Scotland's hidden gems and underrated sites. If… Continue reading Post-Lockdown Adventures: 4 Weekend Trips In Scotland

Photo Friday: Driving The Absolutely Epic Icefields Parkway In Canada

It took me a long, long time to go through all our photos from Canada when we got home in 2018. Six months, in fact. This is because we took over 120 photos of the Icefields Parkway ALONE. Not the lakes that we stopped at; just the mountains as we drove through this epic part… Continue reading Photo Friday: Driving The Absolutely Epic Icefields Parkway In Canada

50 Ways To Seriously Save Money To Travel

When I first started this blog, it was mostly a way to document my travels, but I am also a stringent saver and while most of my travels are on a budget, I always thought I'd have more of a focus on helping YOU save money for travel. I have touched on it before, but… Continue reading 50 Ways To Seriously Save Money To Travel

Visa & Immigration Stories From The Road

A couple of times now, I've touched on the time we tried and failed to get into China, and almost always, I'll get a handful of comments asking what happened. I always summarise the story as succinctly as I can, but truthfully it's hard to tell the story properly in one quick comment. The story… Continue reading Visa & Immigration Stories From The Road

An Anniversary Trip – Staying In A Castle In Argyll & Bute

In happier times, we celebrated our ten year anniversary. Ten. YEARS! It's hard to believe it was only a few months ago, in January, that we set off from Edinburgh for a weekend of rare luxury in a castle over on the west coast of Scotland. It was an area I've never visited either, so… Continue reading An Anniversary Trip – Staying In A Castle In Argyll & Bute

50 Photos To Make You Want To Visit Edinburgh

I'm not going to lie... I've been really lacking motivation recently. Not just for the blog, but for virtually everything in my life. I thought I was okay. I could see light at the end of the tunnel, and I still can, but it feels like we're wading through treacle trying to get there. I've… Continue reading 50 Photos To Make You Want To Visit Edinburgh

Thinking About The Future: 10 Trips I Want To Take

Having been stuck indoors for the past two months, our Japan trip cruelly ripped out from beneath us days before our departure date, to say I'm getting itchy feet is a massive understatement. For a while, I couldn't think about travel. For one thing, we were focused on our wedding and putting contingency plans in… Continue reading Thinking About The Future: 10 Trips I Want To Take
