Four cool places I have stayed

Through my years of travelling, I have loved to stay in a range of different accommodation types depending on the situation, mood or just what seemed the right idea at that particular time. I don’t often do collective posts like this, but looking back I am delighted to have stayed in some truly cool and exciting places with lots of diversity. And hopefully, also a...

A weekend guide to Liverpool

Liverpool is the birthplace of The Beatles, was the home of TV and entertainment star Cilla Black and has a huge industrial history. It also claimed the city of culture title in 2008. Despite these accolades, it can be overlooked as a weekend city break. When I first moved to England, I lived ‘Up North‘ in Lancaster, but didn’t visit Liverpool...

Sleeping in airports with Yotel

Sometimes travel can be tiresome, especially if you have a late arriving or early departing flight. If you have ever been to airports at silly o’clock, you’ve probably noticed a fair few travellers curled up on an airport bench, clutching their bags and using hoodies as pillows. Not the most comfortable of sleeps, but needs must in some situations. In fact, I had the...

Why you need to see London by Helicopter

London is a buzzing metropolis, and the largest city in the UK, that is exciting and chaotic all at the same time. It draws you in with its grand structures, and incredible places to visit. It has everything you need in a city, from expansive green spaces, to top attractions, venues, shops and grand buildings. Sometimes however, London can become a little too much...

Review: Walking the South Downs with Trespass Illya walking boots

The World is an incredible place, and over the past decade of moving around, I have been privileged to have lived in some stunning places. From the Idyllic city of Lancaster, on the edge of the Lake District in England, to New Zealand’s South Island, and now the South-East of England. The more I have travelled, the more it inspires me to get outside and see my...

Touring UK Capital Cities: Belfast, Edinburgh, London, Cardiff

People often hear that the UK is one of the most expensive parts of the world to travel in. While the British Pound seems to have steadied well post-Brexit vote, the 4-country kingdom itself still ranks amongst one of the dearest destinations in Europe. To get a feel for the real cost of living in each of the four British countries here, you should head to the...

A World away, Camping in Durdle Door, Dorset

You don’t have to travel far, to have an Adventure! This is something I have learnt a lot of since returning to live back in the UK, 2 years ago (already). I have moved four times within England since my return, and in the New Year, I will be moving again – hopefully for the last time; for a while at least. All this moving, has got me seeing more of...

Walking over an icon, with UP at the 02

I remember when they built the o2, (or the Millennium Dome, as it was known as then). It was the futuristic dome shaped building, based on the edge of the Thames in North Greenwich, London.  Open for just 12 months, it was a highly controversial attraction at the time, which housed the Millennium Experience; an exhibition celebrating the third Millennium. Over the...

Staying on the edge of the largest indoor Rainforest at YHA Eden Project, Cornwall

The Eden Project is an Educational Charity, which opened in May 2000 with the aim to connect people with plants. It houses the largest indoor Rainforest in the Country, with two giant Biomes, exhibiting plant life from both the tropics, and the Mediterranean, a rainforest Canopy Walkway, as well as incredible well maintained gardens, sculptures and ‘the core’ which...

5 English Cities to Tour By Car

Having a car while living in England makes it so much cheaper and easier to travel around in. I was glad I bought a car when I relocated back to the UK. There are many places to visit in England and I’ve toured just a few so far but always aiming to visit more and more. First step is to get a car and go out and tour for yourself.   Getting Around England: Buy a...
