A guide to a city break in Cardiff, Wales

City breaks are the best way to make the most of a long weekend. Even better when you can road trip there.

How to save money when moving abroad

“Buy a ticket, pack your bags, and go!” That quote is all too familiar in the realms of social media by well travelled millennials. Moving abroad sounds like a breeze.

Why you should visit Berchtesgaden, Germany

Sometimes, it’s not the places that are well known and popular that make an impression on you. It’s the lesser known spots; which you may not have heard of that leave you speechless and wanting to stay there forever.  That’s what happened when I stayed in Berchtesgaden, Germany; a small town on the border of Austria.  My reason for going there was...

Where did my 20s go, and where I’m I going for my 30th?

This year, I will turn 30. Turning 30 is a milestone often celebrated with lavish parties and with a large gathering of friends. For some, it is a milestone that they’d rather not reach.

Get out of London: 5 trips away from the Capital

Let me start off by saying that I love London. It is diverse, and vibrant and has plenty to see, great places to eat and stay. However, there are times when I question myself, when I’ve wandered into the capital, why I am there – when I am being trodden on by several tourists, who are shoving their selfie sticks in my face, or just being trampled upon by...

On the rooftop of Bath, England at Thermae Spa

Recently I got to revisit the historical city of Bath, as a treat for my sisters birthday, and...

A winter weekend in Luxembourg

Unassuming, but incredibly charming, the tiny country of Luxembourg cuddles up beside Germany, France and Belgium, and the short flight from the UK, makes it the perfect spot for a weekend break. The influences from neighbouring countries make up its eclectic character, but there is a true local hospitality that shines through, and although you can cover most of the...

Travelling 9-5: Why you don’t need to quit your job to travel

When I meet people, they often ask me, why I like to travel so much, but also how I can afford travel so much. Especially whilst working full time, and fitting in a lot of other commitments. This has many answers to it, but often my response is – how can you not afford to travel when you work full time?  Before you ask, I am not made of money.  I do not get...

From bright turquoise-blue lakes, and snow-capped mountains, to more adrenaline fuelled activities than you could shake a stick at, and incredibly friendly locals.

Creating travel memories

When I returned from my first big trip away from home on my own, at age 11 (ok, it was a supervised school trip, but I flew for the first time and started my first ever written travel diary), our teacher, gave us a project to complete. It was a scrapbook, which would tell people who would be completing the same trip in the future, a story of what you could do in...
