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.

How To Make Friends In A Hostel

If you're a solo traveller on a budget then you're probably going to be staying in a hostel or two on your journeys, and solo travelling can be so lonely if you don't make friends during your travels. Below I will share my top tips to make brand new friends around the world in hostels.

Glasgow Trip: Day 2

On the second day of our trip in Glasgow we had a day to play with before going to a concert in the evening and decided we wanted to have a relaxed, chilled out day before a nice evening out. We started the day off by going shopping before organising what we were doing for food. 

Vegetarian Eating in Glasgow

Although we didn't have many meals in Glasgow the ones we did have were amazing. As a vegetarian I am always careful about where I eat because in the past I've ended up watching my partner eat a meaty meal whilst I sat hungry and just in general I know I'm quite a fussy eater so it's always a stress having to read the menu before going to any restaurant.
