Life update: we’re engaged!

24th June 2018 No Comment
OK, so it’s actually been 2 months now since we got engaged and I’ve been super busy since then! Now that I finally have some time to sit down and reflect on this huge, incredible life event, I’m getting so excited! The proposal itself was perfect; I’d only just returned from my trip to Saudi […]

Birthday celebrations at Fawsley Hall Spa Hotel, Northamptonshire

4th May 2018 No Comment
My then-boyfriend (now-fiance – more on this in another post soon!) John’s birthday is at the start of April, so last month my gift to him was a spa break at Fawsley Hall near Daventry, Northamptonshire. I think this is our closest stately-home spa and my cousin had also bought us a gift voucher for […]

Hello everyone and apologies that it’s been a little while since I’ve posted! I’d love to be able to commit to writing posts more regularly but when I’m away with work there don’t ever seem to be enough hours in the day. I arrived back in the UK just over a week ago early on […]

I recently changed jobs in November last year, and although I usually travel quite frequently with my work, it meant that I had nearly four months between my last trip in my previous job and my first trip in my new job. So last week, the moment finally arrived for me to get back on […]

A couple of weekends ago we headed up to Cropton in Yorkshire, where we stayed in a cabin in the woods, complete with hot tub. We’d stayed with the same company, Forest Holidays a couple of years ago in January in the Forest of Dean, and we enjoyed it so much we thought it was […]
A Winter city break in Munich

A Winter city break in Munich

14th January 2018 No Comment
Our winter city break in Munich last month was basically a complete replica of a trip we took two years ago… and it was incredible! It’s quite rare that I love a place enough to keep going back as I can get quite obsessive about finding ways to tick new countries off my wishlist (I’m […]

3rd January 2018 7 Comments
It’s my last day at home today before I’m heading back to the office, so I thought I’d take some time to write down my travel plans for 2018. I love reading these kind of posts from other travel bloggers as everyone has such great plans and I look forward to travelling vicariously through them […]
Five ideas to beat the dreaded jet lag

Five ideas to beat the dreaded jet lag

13th November 2017 No Comment
The majority of my work travel over the past couple of years has been decidedly long-haul, which means that as well as getting to discover some incredible places, I’ve also enjoyed my fair share of jet lag (going both east and west). I’ve definitely reached the point where I genuinely get super excited about any […]
