Free Weekend in Amsterdam – #WorkPerks

Yep, that’s right! The wonderful company I work for just celebrated their 10th birthday, and what better way to party than an all expenses paid trip to Amsterdam? You know what they say, cocktails always taste better when you’re not paying… This was my second trip to Amsterdam, my first time was last New Year’s…

My Mauritius Adventure

I’ve just returned from a delightful 4 day break in Mauritius, and my heart is so full and happy from how beautiful and peaceful a place it is. As someone who travels Europe fairly often but has never gone further than Florida in her life, the 12 hour flight to a completely unexplored area of…

The Ultimate Travel Packing List

I think we can all relate to the struggle of getting on holiday to find you’ve left something behind, especially when you said at least 50 times ‘I feel like I’m forgetting something’, but couldn’t quite pinpoint what it was. In some cases it’s less of a big deal, like toothpaste or shower gel, and…

The next place on your travel wishlist: Budapest, Hungary

Stuck for inspiration on holiday destinations? Spent the past week scrolling through last minute deals until your fingers get cramp, feeling like a weekend in a grotty dorm room in Benidorm isn’t quite what you had in mind?

St Patrick’s Day in Dublin, Ireland

St Patrick’s Day, also known as St Paddy’s, is a yearly event on the 17th March, celebrating St Patrick and how he brought Christianity to Ireland.

New Year’s Eve in Amsterdam

It’s been over a month since New Year’s Eve, and although the January blues have faded, I’d still much rather be in Amsterdam stuffing my face with carbs. But wouldn’t we all? Thinking back to happier times, here was my first trip of 2017, where I welcomed the New Year in Amsterdam.     My trip in…

Oktoberfest, Munich

This time last weekend I was heading towards the airport to go to Munich! I made a rather last minute (6 days before, to be exact) decision to join my friends and go to Oktoberfest for the weekend. My friends are from New Zealand but living in Leeds, and apparently Oktoberfest is such a bucket…

5 Places On My Travel Wishlist

So here’s a little fact about me – I have never been abroad with anyone other than my family or on school trips. Never been on a girls holiday (which part of me know is probably a good thing, considering how poor I am at handling my drink) or even just a weekend away. This…

Orlando, Florida

It’s been nearly 3 weeks since my holiday in Orlando, Florida came to an end. Ever since I returned to gloomy England – which, to be fair, has actually had okay weather for once – I’ve just been so desperate to book another flight out to somewhere, anywhere. As a family, we usually spend our summer holiday…
