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!
Heading up to Glencoe, I couldn’t not visit Glen Etive and the famous James Bond location. I was given so many recommendation on what to do, what to see and where to visit; but with the constant torrential rain and low cloud, it was difficult to go very far without putting our lives in danger.
London is one of the places that I hold dearly to my heart, along with New York. I always say I’m a city gal, and whatever city I am in is my favourite – but truthfully I can’t actually choose! So one way a city can sway my opinion is not only an easy transport system (check) but also plenty of green space for walking and relaxing.
With family living in Murcia, we couldn’t say no to a little bus trip down to Cartagena (not to be confused with Colombia’s Cartagena – we are still on mainland Spain!). Cartagena is a small town located within the region of Murcia, and it is home to one of the most important trade and defensive ports in modern history. So let’s take a walk through some it’s most fun and interesting sights. (But be sure to keep in mind of that siesta time, as some places close early!).
As part of our journey through Singapore and Malaysia we thought it was a great idea to squeeze in a weekend of sport and attend the Grand Prix in Sepang.
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!
