Swinging from the Trees at Go Ape!

Swinging from the Trees at Go Ape!

Last weekend Jamie and I headed up to Aberfoyle for a day swinging from the trees at Go Ape. The only way that I can describe Go Ape is that it is a tree-top adventure obstacle course that really gets every part of your body […]

An Overnight Stay & Afternoon Tea at the Edinburgh Capital Hotel

Last weekend I travelled through to Edinburgh with around 16 fabulous ladies for one of my best friend’s hen weekend. We went for a sophisticated itinerary of Chicago at the Playhouse Theatre, Dinner and then some Salsa dancing to finish off. We stayed at the […]

Clydeside & a Night at the Hilton, Glasgow

Clydeside & a Night at the Hilton, Glasgow

If you follow me on twitter you will know that I recently won a competition with my local radio station to attend the Ideal Home Show at the SECC in Glasgow last weekend. Part of the prize was also a luxury over night stay at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow. (more…)

Silence in the Killing Fields, Cambodia

Silence in the Killing Fields, Cambodia

I contemplated not writing this post. Then I thought about why the The Killing Fields is actually open to the public, yes maybe it brings in tourists and generates revenue for the country, but it also keeps the memories alive of those affected my the […]

7 Travel Post Ideas

7 Travel Post Ideas

I wouldn’t class myself as a travel blogger. I sit at my dining room table and write about my holidays, experiences abroad and weekend getaways – not to mention a few Glasgow days out guides and restaurant reviews. It’s my life and unique to me. […]

Isles of Glencoe Hotel & Leisure Centre

As you know, J and I headed up to Glencoe for the weekend as part of our Valentines gifts to each other. (I always say I would rather an experience over a wrapped gift any day!) After a few online deliberations, we chose the Isles of Glencoe to be our choice of destination for the weekend, mainly because of the price, location (on the banks of Loch Leven) and the fact that it had a pool/Jacuzzi facilities – we had an idea the weather might not be the best for all day exploring so we wanted a hotel where we could relax indoors if needed.

Authentic Scottish Food at Auld Raes

Authentic Scottish Food at Auld Raes

If you don’t know Auld Raes then you really should. From the outside, you would easily mistake it for a little outbuilding nestled in the car park of East Kilbride’s village. You would walk by it if you didn’t know what you were looking for. […]

Dinner, Dessert & Drinks: My 24 Hours in Glasgow

Despite living in central Glasgow for my entire 24 years, I still read blog posts and reviews on things to do, places to eat etc. because it is such an abundance of creativity, worldwide food, live music, elite sport, history, culture – the list is non-exhaustive. […]

Visiting a Cat Cafe in Budapest

Visiting a Cat Cafe in Budapest

I always like to go out of my comfort zone when travelling. So what do you do when you have a few hours to spare before hitting the airport to go home? You go to a cat cafe of course! If you’re wondering what a cat cafe is, then it is exactly as it suggests…. a cafe where you go to have a coffee and a cake and relax…surrounded by cats. (more…)

The Cutest Hostel In Budapest

The Cutest Hostel In Budapest

So back in 2013, I finished all my university exams and decided before I went travelling around Asia with my boyfriend, that I would fly over to Budapest to meet up with a few girls I knew that were travelling through Europe (I would’ve went […]
