I think we can all agree that venturing into new places is a pretty fantastic experience. The culture, the scenery, the beaches, whatever it may be that floats your boat. But if I were to ask you what the worst part about travelling was? Probably the cost of it, right? Over the past few years… Continue reading 5 tips to cheaper travel (3 min read)
A day in the Lake District: Red Pike
As mention previously in my first Lake District post (which is all about Skiddaw if you're interested), this August, we decided to complete the three-hour journey up to the Lake District, to a small market town nestled in the northwest of the Lakes called Keswick. When planning our trip, the whole idea was that we were… Continue reading A day in the Lake District: Red Pike
A day in the Lake District: Skiddaw
Seeing that it's now been nearly a month since my boyfriend and I went on our annual walking holiday, I thought I'd better get a move on and actually write a post about it before I forget. Like last year, we decided to complete the three-hour journey up to the Lake District, to a small… Continue reading A day in the Lake District: Skiddaw
Five quick tips for travelling with a 9-5 job
How do you make room for travel in a busy working-life schedule?There's annual leave I guess. In the UK we're considered lucky to get 28 days off per year, across many countries this is far less, but I can't be the only one left thinking that it just isn't enough to satisfy by inner travel… Continue reading Five quick tips for travelling with a 9-5 job
Coconut Oil: My travel godsend
I guess this is more of a beauty (hair?) blog post, but it does fit into my travel theme ever so slightly - promise! For the past decade, I have truly suffered with my hair. It's thick, it's dry and it frizzes the second the temperature gets above fifteen degrees. Blow-drying my hair is a… Continue reading Coconut Oil: My travel godsend
The bucket list: Where will my next adventure take me?
It's no secret that I am continuously planning my next trip away. I use my 28 days per year annual leave from work very cautiously - I will never use a holiday if I don't intend to go somewhere, because wouldn't that just be a waste? With it now being over half way through the… Continue reading The bucket list: Where will my next adventure take me?
Proving my tainted memories of South England wrong
When I think of holidays (or vacations if you're from the other side of the pond), I think of jetting off to hot European islands, splashing around in swimming pools and strolling around towns bursting with European culture. I have fond memories of these travels, they were my happiest childhood memories and personally, I struggle… Continue reading Proving my tainted memories of South England wrong
How to Combine Fitness and Travel
Recently, I've found that trying to stay fitness motivated whilst travelling is one of life's biggest challenges, and no I'm not exaggerating. I love to exercise. I spend countless hours at the gym pretty much every day of the week, or whenever my busy work schedule allows me to. If I can't get to the… Continue reading How to Combine Fitness and Travel
Does Cuba take the title?
Where’s the best place you’ve visited? One of life’s most difficult questions. I’m only twenty-one, so my list of places I’ve traveled to isn’t exactly impressive, but I’ve at least made an effort to get out and about as much as possible. Such a simple question sends countless memories through my head, and attempting to… Continue reading Does Cuba take the title?
Budapest – When in Eastern Europe
Budapest – a surprisingly breathtakingly beautiful city. Before we ventured three hours across Europe, we had no idea what to expect. Right down to the last minute we had convinced ourselves that we would be doing a joint Vienna/Bratislava journey. Whilst I’m sure these two cities are equally beautiful, we are grateful we’d changed our… Continue reading Budapest – When in Eastern Europe
