Glasgow Trip: Day 1

For Christmas I bought my partner tickets to see his favourite singer/songwriter so we planned a weekend trip away to Glasgow. We got cheap bus tickets from Megabus and booked to stay in The Premier Inn in the Glasgow City Centre Buchanan Galleries as my partner gets discount. 

Vegetarian Eating in Berlin

Berlin might be one of the best places for a vegetarian to eat as every second restaurant has a good range of options for vegetarians. Obviously I can only talk about where I went to eat so if you have more suggestions please comment below and share them for my next trip there, or for others. I didn't get a chance to explore all of Berlin, so the places I went to are pretty close to Alexanderplatz.

The Advantages Of Travelling Solo

Before my partner came along I had no one to travel with and had just as good a time travelling as I do now. A lot of people didn't know how I could do it, or where I found the confidence to solo travel, what they didn't see was the places I visited and the amazing people I met. I would definitely recommend hostels for solo travelers because you will meet a large variety of people and you won't feel lonely which means you're less likely to feel homesick.

Dublin Trip 1: Photo Tour

For New Year 2016/2017 I went off to Dublin by myself which gave me a great opportunity to get photos. I wasn't as experienced back then, so a lot of them didn't meet up to my current standards. Below are the best of the bunch from my trip!

My Travel Bucket List

There are so many places that I want to visit in the world and believe me, I will. You'll notice that I have a love affair with Germany and basically want to visit every city there, this is accurate. I love the language, I love the culture and I want to see it all!

Berlin Trip: Photo Tour

So I got a lot of amazing photos when I went to Berlin, so I thought I would share the best of the bunch on this blog as well as my main blog. Most of my time in Berlin was spent sightseeing or eating (like any good holiday...) so below are the best and my favourite photos from the trip! Enjoy and, as I plan to go back, if you know better places to go in Berlin please tell me!

What To Pack For a Holiday

Going on a holiday and lost at what to pack? Don't worry, I'm here to help! Below I'll share what you should pack for your holiday and what to consider leaving behind. Whether it be a sunny holiday in Spain or a winter holiday in Berlin I'll guide you on what to pack.

Why I Love Travelling

Why I Love Travelling

Up until 2017 I hadn't traveled much without my mum, so it scared me. I didn't know how I'd cope in a different country without the comfort of having my mum there with me. For New Year 2016/2017 I decided to travel to Dublin (from Scotland) by myself for the New Years Concert they hold there. My first journey outside of England or Scotland without my mum. It went smoothly for the most part and I had a really good time just being somewhere new and that's when the bug caught me, the traveling bug that wants me to be outside of the UK at all times waiting for the next part of my journey.

Planning A Holiday

Planning is, arguably, the most stressful part of any holiday. You have to make sure your all your plans line up with each other to avoid being disappointed or stuck, you wouldn't want to book flights after that major concert you have tickets for. I personally know how stressful this can be and would like to share my hints/tips on how to plan a holiday with as little stress as possible

I Hate Flying, but Love Travelling

Flying absolutely terrifies me. I'm not sure if it's my sore ears or the fact that I'm in the air, but it really does scare me. It's that moment just before take off when the plane has just started moving and I've more than aware that I can't turn back now. It may be a fear of the unknown, going to a new place and feeling helpless. It might be knowing I'm not in control. It honestly could be anything. When I went on holiday with my partner he fell asleep before we took off and I actually shook him awake so he could hold my hand because I was genuinely getting heart palpitations. Unfortunately for me flying is an essential part of travelling the world so I'm going to have to get used to it. 

Well This Is New...

Hello Everyone!

This whole website is totally new for me and it's a little bit jarring. As an avid Wordpress user for my main blog I thought I'd try something a little different and start a blog on a new platform. I've wanted to start this blog for a long time, but haven't had the chance due to time constraints and illness. However it's a new year and I feel that I finally have the time to sit down and start a new blog.
