Vegetarian Eating in Dublin

In March I took a trip to Dublin, luckily it wasn't my first time there AND it is remarkably similar to Scotland so I was an absolute pro in finding places to eat in Dublin. However I had a mission, when I was 14 (we think) I had this amazing meal that I still say is the finest vegetarian dish I've ever tasted. My mission was to find that restaurant again with only one hint to go on: It was near or in the temple bar area.

My Experience in Dublin Central Inn

My mum and I booked a trip to Dublin to see Flight of The Conchords (which was sadly cancelled, but that's a different story for a different time). We wanted to stay fairly central so that we would be able to get about easily for plenty of attractions. We chose The Dublin Central Inn  because it seemed to be the best price and quality combination for the area we were booking in.

How To Eat Alone Without Feeling Awkward

If you're a solo traveller, you're probably going to find yourself in the position of eating out in a foreign country alone. Admittedly this sounds really daunting, but in reality it's really not that scary, in fact I recommend it. It's empowering and, in my experience, you can even make new friends or hear about a new or hidden awesome place you can go visit whilst you're there. Below I share my top tips to feeling less awkward when eating out alone.

How To Prepare For Long Bus Journeys

As is inevitable with travelling you're probably going to find yourself burdened with a long bus journey to get from A to B. Initially 12 hours on a bus seems very daunting, but it doesn't have to be if you prepare correctly. A lot of my journeys are done by bus, one time even getting the bus from Aberdeen to London which was around 12 hours this is because buses are often the cheaper option so when travelling on a budget can be the best option.
Below I share my top tips for getting prepared for a long bus journey.

Visiting Cruden Bay

If you are visiting, or you live in, areas like Peterhead or Aberdeen you should make your way over to Cruden Bay. It's a 15 minute drive from Peterhead and you can get there by car or bus. Once you get there there is parking which is only a short walk from the beach and the walk up to Slains Castle. Once you're there you have a few options in terms of different walks you can take.

The Best Bars In Aberdeen

If you ask people in Aberdeen where the best bars are they'd probably tell you Slains or Revolution or equivalent. However a lot of these places can be overcrowded and "studenty" because they are so popular. The other thing with these bars is that you have less option for cocktails and craft beers. Below I share my favourite bars in my home city.

Quirky Places For Lunching In Aberdeen

Although Aberdeen isn't an obvious travel location a lot of people end up here with work or visiting friends. As it's my home town I feel obligated to share some of the nicer, quieter and quirkier places in the city. I understand what it's like coming to Aberdeen for the first time and seeing the dull granite everywhere and not being able to afford anything so below I share the best places to grab a bite for lunch.

Advice For a First Time Traveller

Travelling for the very first time is terrifying, there are so many things to remember and airports are so stressful, that's why I can appreciate people who are scared to travel. Flying on a plane can be so daunting, never mind going through everything else as well.

My Experience In St Christopher's Inn Berlin

As a traveler with anxiety where I stay can be the most important part of my whole trip. This is because it will become my "safe place" where I will know I can head back to if it all becomes too much for me. This means hostels can be quite risky for me, in a place with lots of people I don't know some of which don't speak the same language as me and I'm forced to co-habit with them for a number of days.

My Plans For Dublin

At the end of March I will be jet setting off to Dublin with my mum. We're going for the weekend to attend a Flight Of The Conchords concert, but will have a small bit of time to play with when we're there. This will be my third time there so I know the city pretty well so I'll probably venture a bit further than I have in the past.
