Over the past few months, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been going on lots of shorter breaks, rather than week-long getaways. This not just because of my lack of holiday days, but also because I will always go for the cheaper option if it means I get the opportunity to explore a new country. When looking for cheaper breaks, I usually find that Air BnB rentals and hotels are the best option price wise, so this is what the majority of my breaks have been this year. When it comes to which is best though, I really don’t know if…

Considering I only live a few hours away by train, I’ve actually only ever visited Liverpool twice in my entire life. Once was a school trip where we walked around the Tate art gallery all day, and the second was a recent blogger’s event where I went from the train station to the venue, then back to the station again. There’s so much more to Liverpool I need to see.  In my vow to visit more UK cities, I think Liverpool is definitely top of the list as it’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to explore more.

I was 19 and looking to go on an adventure between my first and second year, so I couldn’t think of anywhere better to go than California.  That beiTravelling on your own shouldn’t be limited to your gap year. Going solo allows complete self-indulgence – you decide on the location and itinerary, so no compromises to be made there. It also requires self-reliance, but provided you plan well in advance…

When I was younger I was scared of absolutely everything, especially when it came to transport and travel. Hard to believe now huh? I’d cry at the thought of going up a mountain, I’d cry every time we drove through the countryside and the thought of going on a plane, boat or even a Ferris wheel made me feel sick to my stomach. I’ve definitely conquered most of my fears over the last ten years, however, there are still so many I still need to overcome including theme park rides, speed boats, cable cars and driving. I always remember my…
