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 with them, but I wanted to graduate in person).
So for this post I thought I would share a funny (well it’s funny now, it wasn’t at the time) story, and possibly a good lesson learned.
I’ve filtered through the thousands of images I took while in Ibiza in September and gathered a few of the Old Town that were just so inspiring. The photo’s don’t do the atmosphere and vibe any justice, but hopefully these photos will give you a small glimpse into this gem of a place.
We spend our afternoon wandering around the narrow, winding cobbled streets – stopping at every little market stall. Afterwards we walked up to the Dalt Villa fort, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Hope you enjoy!
So for our annual holiday this year, we decided we wanted to find somewhere where we could relax during the day, sunbathe, swim etc but come night time we didnt want to be stuck to hotel entertainment. We had never went on a package holiday so we were unsure of what to expect.
Cue The White Isle!
If you can brave the icy winds, relentless chills and 4pm darkness, then the Scottish highlands can be a beautiful wonderous land of fresh air, blogging inspiration and an endless amount of forest animals walking in your back garden
The Highlands offers plenty of culture and heritage during the summer months, but come the winter tourist hotspots close their gates and shops bring down the shutters just that bit earlier. So what is there to do then, I hear you ask.
Last week we all traveled up to Golspie for a week for a family birthday. If you don’t know where Golspie is, it’s a tiny little village plopped right up on the East Coast of the Scottish Highlands. It has one main street with about 10 shops, including cute little tea rooms and charity shops. To be honest the giant Co-Op takes away from the secluded feel but is a complete life saver when you need food or drink after 3pm!
If you’re planning a trip to Thailand I’m pretty sure you’ve researched the hell out of your destination, whether it be Bangkok, Phuket or somewhere up north like Chiang Mai, then you probably already know what excursions you’re going on, what hostel you’re staying at or even a few favourite bars that people have recommended. But what a lonely planet book won’t tell you is to be vigilant of scams, tricks etc. Now Thais were one of the most polite and friendly people I met on my travels, even the police stopped us to give some advice on the best mode of transport to get to our hotel from the train station! But despite all the positives, there are always negatives, just like any country you visit. So I’ve written five things that will hopefully allow you to have a smooth and happy holiday!
