A Short List Of Places I Really Do Want To Visit Soon!

Each and every time I see a new destination that tickles my fancy, I can almost feel my boyfriend wanting to sink into the floorboards because he knows exactly what is about to come out of my mouth… “Can we go?!” I ask him gleefully, expectantly, excitedly. “Yes dear…” Is how he would usually answer with an eyeroll and a quick calculation as to how old we would be and how much money we would have left if we actuallyRead more

10 Reasons To Go To Lisbon Right This Second

After having lived in Spain for quite some time, I really should have found a week within that time to pop on over to Portugal for a wee adventure! But my time finally came earlier in the year when my boyfriend and I were looking to book a cheeky getaway to Copenhagen. Although flights to the must-see capital of Denmark were endearingly cheap, everything else was looking like it may cost us more than we could afford at the timeRead 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

5 Reasons Why Staycationing Will Help You Fall Back In Love With Your City

Having lived on London’s doorstep for the majority of my life, I become very disgruntled with it from time to time. It’s like an irritating lover that you can’t end things with because you’ve been together since you were teenagers and you don’t quite know how to be your own person without them. And real talk, I can’t be the only one that get’s like that about the places closest to them, right? So every now and then I have toRead more

How To Spend A Week In Rome

Rome is the City of echoes, the City of illusions, and the City of yearning…   Rome is one of the most glorious places I’ve ever visited, and I’m lucky enough to have lived there for 6 months, so it seemed like the perfect place to go with my best friend just before she moves away to Vietnam. Going back to Rome felt like going home and I had the most magical week. Here is a list of things toRead 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

You Can Take The Girl Out Of Spain But You Can’t Take Spain Out Of The Girl!

Today has been one of those massively reflective kinda days. You know the type of days that people only really have in music videos? Where they stare out of a rainy window whilst they drink something alcoholic, smoke a fag and think about their ex.  I’ve been having the same kind of day in my head. Minus the beautiful dramaticness of it all though, as I’ve been at work all day so wouldn’t really be able to get away with it;Read more

Valencia Bucket List

In 2013 I spent a month living and working in Valencia. I don’t really know why I haven’t written a proper itinerary for the City yet; but I suppose when you live somewhere you skip all the touristy stuff and end up going to the same places. I adore Valencia, I really do, but it’s a place that I definitely preferred to live in rather than be a tourist in, so I thought I would comprise a bucket list ofRead more

A Countdown Of My 7 Most Ridiculous Memories Abroad

Every time I tell people stories, I am normally met with “only you, Lizzie”. I’m often getting myself into bizarre situations that my friends look forward to hearing about. In fact, only yesterday one of my friends described me as having a likelihood to Shosh from Girls by saying “if we were at a party, you would accidentally smoke crack & take your skirt off and I wouldn’t bat an eye” – Don’t worry though Mum, I’ve never smoked crack, accidentally orRead more
