** In collaboration** Catching a lift via plane to an exotic destination is a dream come true for many people. Simply get on the huge Boeing container, sit back and relax, and wait for the adventures to start. Ah, bliss. Of course, travelling isn’t a picnic. As well as staying safe, you’ve got to understand the best ways to stay […]
Since returning home from my European adventures, I have been asked so many times what my favourite places were. Being asked this, made me reflect for myself and I have managed to dwindle the list down to four favourite places (but don’t ask me to pick just one!). 1. Old Town, Stockholm- Gamla Stan was a place that made me […]

Although the capital, as there is only approximately 300,000 people living in Iceland, Reykjavik is not overly large. However, […]
The first vlog (out of 2) from my month-long adventures is now up! Check it out below.
“A vibrant and diverse town” I had such high expectations for Ireland- For some unknown reason I have always loved Ireland without ever visiting. So naturally, I was very excited to get the chance to explore the capital city. I first visited Dublin on the tour I was doing and we were warned by the tour manager that Dublin may […]

All I really knew was that it was in Scotland and that it was the first stop on my month-long adventure. After getting off the plane and taking […]
