Madness in Marrakesh

Africa 3rd October 2017

Wow. Marrakesh – a sensation for the senses 24/7, and my word it is an absolutely bonkers place. There’s so much to cram in if you can hack the pace!

A Little Log Cabin on the North Devon Coast

UK 26th April 2017

At the age of 31 I didn’t think I’d be saying I’d never been to Devon before. A trip to Kent in February and a country walk past a huge windmill that had been converted into an AirBnB inspired me to get involved in the latest trend of staying in quirky remote countryside accommodation. This year’s Easter weekend felt like the perfect time to get away from the city and have a proper staycation. 

A Romantic Getaway to the Perfect Island of Paxos

Europe 31st August 2016

Finally I’ve got round to writing about our week in paradise! Sorry for the delay, but this one will be worth waiting for. After a recommendation from friends and struggling to find a perfect summer holiday destination, Nick and I decided to go to Paxos, Greece.

Glastonbury Festival I Love You So Much!

Glastonbury is my happy place. I’ve just got home from my third trip to Worthy Farm and my first with my boyfriend Nick, and I absolutely loved it. I forget about the real world and have a bloody good time exploring a world that only exsits for five days each year. Once again I was very lucky to get a ticket.

A Birthday Surprise in Budapest

Picture this – your best mate lives in Dubai, so her boyfriend coordinates a surprise trip to Budapest for her 30th Birthday with her closest friends and her parents for a couple of nights.

I have never been so scared about screwing up a surprise in my life. Cue the avoidance of said friend on WhatsApp for approximately 3 weeks beforehand in fear that I might accidentally drop the bomb. Despite that, the excitement was pretty intense in the many secret group chats we had going on before our trip. It’s been a while since I’ve been on a jolly with the girls and I couldn’t bloody wait.

Istanbul: Meat, Markets & a Marathon

When my good friend Laura suggested a weekend away to watch her take part in the Istanbul marathon I had the flights booked less than 48 hours later – its fair to say Turkey has been on my list for a very long time!

Booking so quickly was a no-brainer. Laura lives in Dubai and we don’t get to see each other very often, so a meet-in-the-middle in a new city was very appealing. We both love sport, so being there to cheer her on at points during her 26.2 miles of hell was a definite yes. Finally, the food.

24 Hours in Tokyo

I’ve had a busy start to October travelling across Asia on business, taking in three countries and three cities in six days. One of which was Tokyo. 

I won’t bore you with the details of my work trip but our schedule meant we could afford to have a Saturday in the Japanese capital for some of leisure time before flying back to London. 

What on earth do you get up to in Tokyo when you’ve only got 24 hours to spare – where to start? Well my answer to that is the slightly strange but brilliant Kappabashi Street.

Seattle Sights

I’ve heard many good things about Seattle but if I’m completely honest, I never thought I’d end up going there. That was until I booked a two-night stay at the end of my west-coast USA trip, the main reason being because it made my flight home from my San Francisco and Portland trip much cheaper. So after a brilliant weekend in Portland I made the four-hour journey to Seattle by train with Amtrak.
