7 holiday essentials I NEVER travel without

There’s nothing I love more than a good city break. Sauntering down unknown streets, camera in one hand, local guidebook in the other. Bliss! I’m lucky enough to go on foreign city breaks a couple of times a year. You can see some of my recent travel vlogs here. Over the years, I’ve come to realise that there are a handful of items that I consistently reach to when I’m packing my suitcase. From city breaks to country retreats, these…

A mini break in Lisbon, Portugal (with video!)

I ticked a big item off my bucket list earlier this month. I spent a long weekend in Lisbon, one of the foodie capitals of Europe! It was every bit as picturesque and dreamy as I was hoping. We spent 4 days exploring colourful streets, eating custard tarts (SO TASTY) and strolling along the waterfront. You’d never suspect it from the photos, but the weather was a bit hit-and-miss (we got caught in a huuuge rainstorm on the first day). But we…

NYE in Bruges, Belgium (video)

I know, I know; New Year’s Eve is a distant memory. But I’m gonna revisit it for one last blog post, I hope you don’t mind! Way back on the 29th December, I hopped in the car and drove all the way to Dover, through the channel tunnel, across France and into Belgium. Phew, what a journey! I then spent a few nights in Bruges with Gareth and his family, to celebrate New Year. It was the first time I’ve…

Christmas Gift Guide for Adventurers (3/5)

It’s no secret that I LOVE to travel. My YouTube channel is full of travel videos, and I’ve shared a fair few travel-related posts here on the blog. If you know someone who is as wanderlust-stricken as me, then this gift guide for adventurers should come in handy! Don’t forget to share this post on social media if you found it useful (or just want to drop a few hints!). 🙂 1. Polaroid Zip Printer. I used my mini Polaroid printer…

Yosemite National Park travel video

Yosemite Valley is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. Looming sequoia trees tower above you as the sun filters through the canopy, peaceful streams trickle by and wildlife is abundant in every direction you look. In my Yosemite National Park travel vlog, you can follow along as I hike to Yosemite Falls, Half Dome village, El Capitan and more of the top sights in Yosemite Valley. We were only in Yosemite National Park for one day, but we…

Look inside my San Francisco travel scrapbook…

I’m really excited to share something a little different with you guys today… a look through my San Francisco travel scrapbook! Now, I’m not much of a scrapbooker, so don’t judge me too hard. But I thought I’d give it a try during my trip last month. Gareth and I made this scrapbook as we went along during the holiday (instead of letting everything stack up, leaving us with loads of stuff to stick in when we got home). This…

Watch my San Francisco video

I’m feeling some major post-holiday blues. I’ve been back in the UK for 2 weeks now, following my epic week-long trip to San Francisco. You’d think I’d be over it by now, but nope; I’m still day-dreaming of California… You know when you visit somewhere and it just clicks? I seriously could’ve stayed there and not come home! I can’t put my finger on what it was that I loved so much about San Francisco. The city just has SO MUCH…

A weekend in Loch Lomond (video)

A few weeks ago, I spent a long weekend on the shores of the beautiful Loch Lomond in Scotland. It was incredible! I’ve been to Scotland a few times before, but I’ve mostly stuck to the big cities – so it was a really nice change to explore the countryside and little villages sleeping aids scattered along the way. I went there with a bunch of old school friends of mine. We try and go on a weekend break together…
