Rome, Italy – September 2019

Long time coming, this post – but I finally did it! I finally made it to Rome, one of the most popular tourist cities in the world, and did it in relative style! Not going to lie, this was one of my more challenging solo adventures, and my patience and hatred of inefficiency was tested big time. Want to know more? Read on, friend! … Read More Rome, Italy – September 2019

Helsinki, Finland – January 2019

To top off my triple threat of Scandinavian capital cities (see Stockholm here and Oslo here!), I took advantage of a cheap flight deal and flew to Helsinki a few weekends ago. Yes, I went to Finland in the middle of January. Wanna hear about it? Course you do! I flew out to Helsinki from London Heathrow on Friday 11th January (fortunately, as I’m sure I’ve mentioned in … Read More Helsinki, Finland – January 2019

Luxembourg – July 2018

Question: What do you do when you’re home alone and bored on a Saturday night? Do you: A) Set up a Netflix binge-a-thon? B) Do a heck-load of washing? C) Decide to go to Luxembourg for the day? If you’re anything like me, C) seems like the most logical option. So there you have it – I went to Luxembourg yesterday for the day. … Read More Luxembourg – July 2018

Monaco – April 2018

Hi all! I’ve returned to the world of intermittent travel – starting with Monaco (and by definition, also Nice, I guess?)! I’ll admit, it was pretty much a work trip, but I still managed to see a lot of the beautiful city and its surroundings, as well as pretend I was absolutely minted for a few days. Which is always fun. We landed in … Read More Monaco – April 2018

Edinburgh, Scotland – September 2017

Birthday month! And with it comes a new trip (obviously). This year, I decided to spend my birthday in beautiful Edinburgh – one of my favourite cities, and home to kilts, bagpipe music, diabetes-inducing tablet, and whiskey a go-go. Wanna hear about it? Of course you do! Read on… I flew into Edinburgh from Gatters on Thursday 7th September – the flight was surprisingly … Read More Edinburgh, Scotland – September 2017

Stockholm, Sweden – August 2017

God Morgon! I’ve just flown in from Sweden where I spent a very enjoyable 3 days stuffing my face with pastries, hanging out on a boat with dear friends, and taking in some of the most spectacular architecture I’ve seen in a long time. Wanna hear more? Of course you do! (I’m writing this post on about 4 hours sleep, so please don’t expect … Read More Stockholm, Sweden – August 2017

Montreux, Switzerland – April 2017

Hello, world! Long time no blogging, and for that, I apologise. Life’s been oh so slightly hectic over the past few months, so blogging (and sadly travelling) has taken a bit of a backseat. However, I’m back, sat in a Starbucks with my iPad, listening to a couple argue about boilers, and ready to blog about Switzerland. *** Please note – this was a … Read More Montreux, Switzerland – April 2017

Milan, Italy -January 2017

Another classic Skyscanner deal strikes again, this time to Milan in Italy! I’d never been to Italy prior to this (shocking, I know), so, even though it was only going to be a night, I very much treated this trip as a dip in the water before fully submerging myself in Italian culture (looking at you, Rome!). And I was not disappointed. I will … Read More Milan, Italy -January 2017

Warsaw, Poland – November 2016

So, in possibly my craziest mini adventure yet, I went to Poland for the afternoon on Saturday. I have to be honest, Poland has never really appealed to me as a destination (despite a lot of my friends being Polish/of Polish origin), but when I saw £35 return flights on Skyscanner (where else?), I decided that a day in Poland would be a perfect … Read More Warsaw, Poland – November 2016

Coming up next…

Hey Internet! In the last month or so, I’ve been busy with work, various other social engagements, and Barcelona (again, for work, although no complaints here!). However, I may or may not have booked a few more little trips here and there courtesy of Skyscanner, the girls of ‘Girls Love Travel’ on Facebook and an insatiable wanderlust and desire to see everything the world … Read More Coming up next…

Berlin, Germany – September 2016

Berlin has to be one of my all-time favourite cities. Friendly people, easy transport system, cheap as chips, and incredible buildings with wonderful social history behind them (and we all know social history is my kinda thing). So, when I decided to go away for a mini weekend break for my birthday, Berlin was right up there. Unbeknownst to me, the weather was forecast … Read More Berlin, Germany – September 2016

Oslo, Norway – April 2016

After America I had a huge sense of wanderlust, so, settled with a bag of popcorn and a glass of wine one night, I indulged in my favourite hobby – looking for cheap flights on Skyscanner. There are always cheap flights to Scandinavia for some reason, and I travelled to Denmark and Sweden last November this way, but hadn’t yet been to Norway… At … Read More Oslo, Norway – April 2016
