Seven side-hustles I fund my travels with that I can do from anywhere in the world

I’ve lost count of the amount of blog posts I’ve read telling me to stop buying coffee when I’m out in order to afford to travel. To be completely honest, I don’t even buy coffee when I’m out. I have my one cup in the morning and that does me for the day. Similarly with … Continue reading Seven side-hustles I fund my travels with that I can do from anywhere in the world

The nine free travel apps I couldn’t live without

It's fair to say technology has definitely shaped up the way we travel. Being only 22, I haven't experienced the type of traveling my Nan used to tell me about - cycling from country to country using only a map and calling home occasionally to check in. Nope. My first solo travel adventure included an … Continue reading The nine free travel apps I couldn’t live without

A walk around Stockholm’s incredible underground art gallery

It's fair to say I got some strange looks when I told my family and friends that I spent an afternoon riding around Stockholm's underground system when I only had a handful of days in the country. And sure, doing that in pretty much any other country would be weird. But Stockholm, home to the … Continue reading A walk around Stockholm’s incredible underground art gallery

A trip to Warsaw’s Neon museum

Warsaw is generally known for being a historic city. The capital of Poland, (although frequently confused with Krakow) it's filled with faux old buildings, steeped in history and you'll never fall short of learning a new fact. The thing about Warsaw is that it's actually almost entirely brand new. It fell to the ground during … Continue reading A trip to Warsaw’s Neon museum

10 things I can’t travel without

Over the last year of travelling I’ve found myself loosening up a bit when it comes to packing. I used to be someone who’d pack way in advance of taking an actual trip, which was great, until I realised I couldn’t wear half of my wardrobe without unpacking again first. Nowadays, I have a list … Continue reading 10 things I can’t travel without

My first experience of Contiki and why it’s the perfect jump into solo travelling

I’ve written about my solo travel adventures before (and almost definitely will do again) but I thought today I’d focus on my first ever solo-ish trip. Because if I hadn’t taken the jump into taking it, there’s a chance I never would have started exploring properly on my own. Which also means this blog might … Continue reading My first experience of Contiki and why it’s the perfect jump into solo travelling

Why everyone should consider solo travel

Rather than a great urge to travel the world or a sudden influx of money into my bank account, my journey into traveling solo was sparked by little more than impatience and irritation. First – New Years eve circa 2016, when I realised I had no plans. After some social media stalking I found a … Continue reading Why everyone should consider solo travel

My first experience staying in hostels: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

The first thing I notice about my new friend Marco is that he has very hairy legs. This isn't usually something I notice in new people, but then again, I don't usually wake up a metre away from them either. Marco is Hungarian but living in Berlin, I learn, and has a penchant for flowery … Continue reading My first experience staying in hostels: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
