Glasgow is home to one of the fiercest football (or soccer) rivalries in the world: The Old Firm. With attendances averaging 50,000 at each home match, Rangers and Celtic are two of Glasgow’s most celebrated clubs in the UK. Unfortunately getting to see them play each other is virtually impossible unless you have a season ticket or know someone closely involved with either team. Nevertheless, it’s easy to get hold of a ticket for every other league home game.
The fact this post is live means I’ve been to Berlin, explored the city and now I’m home. Sad times! Last week I travelled to Berlin with two of my closest friends to explore what Germany had to offer. Part of the reason we chose Berlin was simply because I’ve always wanted to go, and partly because the flights and accommodation were so cheap (see my post here on how I managed to travel for £225).
To say Ibiza is renowned for it’s epic sunsets is an absolute understatement, and one of the most treasured parts of the island to witness the phenomenon is on the world famous sunset strip. You can watch the sun set a thousand times but each one will be unique and give you a new overwhelming sense of relaxation, romance and wanderlust to discover what is beyond that horizon. I’m not going to lie to you, there are other places on the island to witness the sunset, but with the combination of perfect geography, music and beverages, nothing beats San Antonio.
Last weekend saw me and four friends set off on our epic road-trip from Glasgow to Cambridge to visit one of our best friends. We had done this once before back in July 2015, and safe to say we had learned from a few of the rookie mistakes we made. So I’ve compiled a list of hints, tips, tricks and do’s and don’ts to make sure you have the comfiest, most efficient and relaxing journey!
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. Not many people can say they have been abandoned in a Cambodian Crocodile Farm or stuck at the Malaysian Border but I have and that’s what makes me different from other bloggers out there.
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’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!
