Flying Etiquette: How Not To Be An Absolute Dickhead!

The older I am getting, the less willing I am to accept people’s selfishness… ESPECIALLY on a flight. I always find travel can turn even Mother Theresa into Donald Trump in certain situations… but I implore you to cling onto that ounce of lovely human being with all your might when you are up in the air. Mate, we are all tired, we are all sweaty, we are all uncomfortable and we can all hear that baby crying, but IRead more

Autumn In Europe: My Top 11 Places To Explore This Season!

Whenever someone asks me what my favourite season is, I always say Spring as it’s vibrant, it’s hopeful and it’s the start to a really great couple of months. But if we’re being honest, Autumn is my absolute guilty pleasure. Talking about it with new people is similar to when I talk about trashy TV with new people that I want to impress… I’ll turn my nose up slightly and pretend that I don’t really care for it because IRead more

A Quick Overview Of Fes, Morocco!

My Mum and I went to Fes at the beginning of this year and my god, it was utterly beautiful. It was an easy feat to fall in love with Fes. The Medina sucked me in instantly, and made me feel like I was a Moroccan goddess who was perhaps born in the wrong place. I threw flirty glances at the Souks, gawped at the large, colourful doors and fluttered my eyelashes at the Riyad I was staying in. WhatRead more

The Day I Almost Met Dracula…

I can’t tell you exactly when I became hooked on the legend of Dracula, I can just tell you that one day I was. I have read the book once every year or so since as long as I can remember, I’ve watched everything and anything that speculates on the legend and have loved all the tales of Vlad the Impaler, even if they meant that I would hear the words that I didn’t want to hear, that Dracula wasRead more

9 Things You Should Know Before Visiting London.

1) The year of the Oyster card is out. A lot of Londoners don’t even bother using their Oyster card anymore, instead we use our contactless credit or debit cards when checking in and out of the tube, which charges us exactly the same as an Oyster card would, but saves us the time of having to queue to top it up. The only time we use our Oyster card is when it is attached to some sort of railcard,Read more

Barcelona: The City Of Dreams..

I first visited Barcelona back in 2013 over Easter break, where although I liked it, I didn’t find myself completely blown away by the City. This time round however I found myself longing to stay. When you’re planning your trip to Barcelona, no amount of time will be enough as there is so much to see and do, so just spring for as long as you can. The sights… Parc de la Ciutadella I’ve always been privy to a goodRead more

7 Things My Mum Taught Me About Travel

1) You don’t need to break the bank on an extravagant all inclusive on the other side of the World. I would never, ever turn down a lavish, luxury trip somewhere. But unfortunately it’s just not always that affordable. My mum was bringing up two kids on her own and so couldn’t afford a lot of the holidays that kids in my class would go on. She never let that get her down though; we saw all the corners ofRead more

Budapest: The City Where Anything Is Possible…

There is something special about Budapest; you can feel it from the moment you arrive in the city. There isn’t anything in particular that stands out as the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen and the reason why Budapest is so special but you can just feel it all around you. Having a drunken conversation with a lovely Scottish girl from my Hostel on one of the nights we both agreed that the vibe of the city was unlike anyRead more
