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 […]

I received the Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones for my birthday/Christmas last December (see what other travel gifts I received here!) I’ve been using them on every single trip I’ve taken ever since and I don’t really know what I did without them.

So it’s summertime, you’re going away soon and you’re really excited! Maybe it’s just for a quick business jaunt or for that luxury three-week holiday that you’ve been saving for.

5 reasons to choose AirBnB over hotels

5th May 2017 No Comment
Trip planning is one of my favourite things to do, just generally, and recently I’ve been turning to AirBnB more than ever.

I usually […]
