  • Where to eat in Northumberland

    April 29, 2018

    Just south of the Scottish border is the very beautiful county of Northumberland. It is the northernmost part of England and is home to the quaint town of Alnwick. For a fairly small town there are so many lovely things to do and see here, especially in the summer months.

  • 72 hours in Edinburgh, Scotland

    April 13, 2018

    There is something so lovely about having your friends come and stay – showing them the local sights and attractions and catching up over brunches and coffee stops. Last weekend, I had some of the Bristol uni crew come and spend the weekend with me and we managed to see quite a bit of Edinburgh, whilst still having a chance to catch-up and essentially watch the entire season of Queer Eye (an absolute must-watch if you haven’t already seen it!).

  • Edinburgh to Glencoe Roadtrip

    March 24, 2018

    Whilst travelling to New Zealand, South Africa and Asia are high on my travel wish list, there is something lovely about taking a short trip somewhere nearer to home. This week, we went on a mini road trip up to Glencoe in Fliss, the sturdy but not hugely reliable Ford. Miraculously, she survived the trip on some fairly bumpy and uneven roads and really was essential to our road-trip.
