Over the last year of travelling I’ve found myself loosening up a bit when it comes to packing.

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.

Czechin’ out Prague this weekend

Following the ending of my relationship and slow acceptance of working for the entirety of summer, i’d somewhat accepted that any chance of a summer holiday had vanished. ‘Office job’ does not particularly scream bikini and cocktails on tap, so instead of building up a small fort of summer clothes, I’d gradually over time conditioned … Continue reading Czechin’ out Prague this weekend

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

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.

The coolest hostels to stay at in Stockholm, Sweden

My next trip is coming up in 15 days and I'm so excited! You might have read about it previously on my blog, but it's going to be my first solo trip abroad. Now that I've got over the supposed stigma of traveling alone and all that apparently surrounds it, I'm really looking forward to … Continue reading The coolest hostels to stay at in Stockholm, Sweden

Barcelona: The best tourist hotspots

The Spanish southern city of Barcelona is definitely one to visit if you’re interested in culture, history, or food. Its many architectural sites are amazing to visit if you’ve got anything from a few hours to a few days to spare. Most notably by Gaudi, you’ll find hundreds of little stalls selling his patterns on anything from plates, to umbrellas, to books...
