Planning & Packing For A Winter Iceland Trip

I absolutely love planning trips and creating itineraries for wherever I go - but planning a trip to Iceland in winter was HARD. The limited daylight hours mean you have to meticulously plan what you can see, and the cold weather means you have to pack so much more than, say, a few days in… Continue reading Planning & Packing For A Winter Iceland Trip

Why I’m Actually Glad I Didn’t Travel Abroad Much This Year

After the hell storm of 2020 and the sudden hope of vaccine success, I was unbelievably excited about getting back to normality in 2021. I wasn't naΓ―ve - I didn't expect everything to go completely back to normal, and I was never going to jet off to Absolutely Everywhere Straight Away. Other countries would still… Continue reading Why I’m Actually Glad I Didn’t Travel Abroad Much This Year

An Update On My 2021 Challenges

It's about six months since I announced my goals for 2021, and if I'm honest even though I've been slowly working on them in the background, I had forgotten to check in on how I'm actually doing with them. Having decided to do a progress check post for the half-year mark, it's with some trepidation… Continue reading An Update On My 2021 Challenges

Exploring Scotland & The World Virtually With Google Street View

I don't know about you, but I am addicted to maps. Whenever Ash finds me perusing Google Maps, he basically sighs and leaves me to it, knowing that he's lost me for another evening. And lately, it hasn't just been maps - it's been Google Street View as well. I never used to like the… Continue reading Exploring Scotland & The World Virtually With Google Street View

Fall Foliage & Failed Frolics In Picturesque Perthshire

Last month, we had planned a weekend trip to Perthshire - one of the only things we'd actually planned in advance this year, which was a slight risk - and I was excited to explore more of this part of Scotland. I've always enjoyed Perthshire - the shores of Kinloch Rannoch and the charming town… Continue reading Fall Foliage & Failed Frolics In Picturesque Perthshire

Four Islands, One Epic Weekend On The Isle Of Mull

After a wonderful trip a few weeks ago, I have some important news: the Isle Of Mull might just be my new favourite place in Scotland! As with most trips this summer, our trip to Mull was fairly spontaneous, and although I was looking forward to seeing what Scotland's fourth largest island had to offer,… Continue reading Four Islands, One Epic Weekend On The Isle Of Mull

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

A Camping Guide To The North Coast 500 In Scotland

A few months ago, my friend and I set off on a week-long adventure around Scotland, with a focus on the famous North Coast 500 route. We were doing it all on a budget, which meant taking my car and camping in a tent as we went. Luckily, camping in Scotland is made even easier… Continue reading A Camping Guide To The North Coast 500 In Scotland
