A winter weekend away in Yorkshire

A winter weekend away in Yorkshire

4th February 2018 No Comment
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 […]

2018 Travel Plans

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 […]

What’s in my carry-on? 7 things I won’t fly without!

9th November 2017 1 Comment
As I’ve mentioned before, most of the travel I do is for work and I’m usually away for around 12 weeks of the year. The majority of this travel is long-haul (i.e. flights of around 7 hours or more). I also travel to multiple destinations in one trip, which can mean anything up to about […]
One day in… Toronto. Discovering Downtown on foot

One day in… Toronto. Discovering Downtown on foot

30th October 2017 No Comment
To be perfectly honest, despite my long-standing love affair with Canada, Toronto has never been one of my favourite cities to visit. This isn’t necessarily due to any fault of the city itself, but probably more to do with when I usually visit. The first time was on my year abroad when I’d finished living […]

Cerro Monserrate – A 17th Century Sanctuary in Bogotá

11th October 2017 No Comment
I realised the other day that in the last two years I’ve been to Colombia four times with my current job, which seems like a lot! Much as I’ve enjoyed my trips to this beautiful country, Colombia does come with what could be considered quite a significant health and safety warning. I’ve never felt unsafe […]
Should you visit Barbados during the off-season?

Should you visit Barbados during the off-season?

5th October 2017 No Comment
Places like Barbados and other countries in the Caribbean are often considered to be luxury (read: extortionate) destinations for travellers from the UK and Europe. However, there are ways to get the price down, particularly nowadays with such a lot of flight and accommodation packages available. Even with the packages though, your dream holiday could […]
