A Drive Through Two Underrated Canadian Rockies National Parks

I'm always excited to visit Banff. It might help that I have some awesome family there, but Banff in itself is inexplicably one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, so I'm lucky to have excuses to visit often (if 3 times in 12 years counts as often). But on this trip, we'd be… Continue reading A Drive Through Two Underrated Canadian Rockies National Parks

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


Australian Wildlife: The Good, The Bad & The Unexpected

You hear it all the time. Everything in Australia wants to kill you. I'm not gonna lie, guys: I've wanted to visit Australia for as long as I can remember, but I've always been terrified of the idea of spiders the size of dinner plates and crocodiles biting your arm off and snakes hiding in… Continue reading Australian Wildlife: The Good, The Bad & The Unexpected

#tbt: A Birthday Break To Greece

One thing Ash is absolutely passionate about when it comes to history is Greek mythology, so in the hunt for a birthday present a few years agoΒ I naturally dug around for some cheap flights and treated him to a hotel break in the heart of Greek history: Athens! (am I the best girlfriend ever or… Continue reading #tbt: A Birthday Break To Greece


Clazz’s 2017 Challenges

Happy new year travellers and readers! I have to say our new year was VERY different to last year! When we arrived back in the UK almost four months ago (FOUR MONTHS?!?

#tbt: Hitting Two Of Europe’s “Big Cities”: Barcelona & Rome

When I owned my shop, time off was really scarce. Like, really really. Like, I went almost a year without having two days off together. So when I did find the time to get out of the UK (because leaving the country was genuinely the best - and only - way to distance myself from… Continue reading #tbt: Hitting Two Of Europe’s “Big Cities”: Barcelona & Rome

Weekend Wishlist: Deals & Competitions

Blah blah blah, Black Friday. There have been some really amazing deals, admittedly, but I don't always buy into the hype. What I do buy into, however, is great deals year round, amazing competitions, and flash sales - and I often see them and want to post on here about them. Whether it's a Β£10… Continue reading Weekend Wishlist: Deals & Competitions


#tbt: A Day Trip To The German Christmas Markets

"GO ON WITHOUT ME!!!" We ran as fast as we could through the airport - we'd just flown through security, where Ash set the buzzers off and we left him behind. A man down, my flatmate and I stormed down the corridor to our departure gate, which naturally was right at the end. "PLEASE LET… Continue reading #tbt: A Day Trip To The German Christmas Markets


Mountains, Lakes & Glaciers: Road Tripping The Canadian Rockies

If there was one way to end our mighty 19-month trip on a high, a road trip through three national parks in the Canadian RockiesΒ was the way to do it. We had been planning to hire a car to explore the mountains and lakes of Banff national park for a day or two, but when… Continue reading Mountains, Lakes & Glaciers: Road Tripping The Canadian Rockies
