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

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.

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.

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.

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
