Breakfast on my final morning in the Cotswolds started (…after a nice bath) with Eggs royale for myself and Eggs & soldiers for Lloyd – all washed down with some freshly brewed coffee. The Royal Oak is a fairly small and intimate place (I think there only 6 rooms in total) so you’re quite likely … Continue Reading

Our next stop after Zermatt was to Val d’Herens, more specifically to the village of Nax, a spot up in the mountains with an incredible view of the surrounding valleys! Easy as it was to get on the train here – after our day of skiing, I was surprisingly quite knackered! We checked into the … Continue Reading

The best hikes in Ireland are without a doubt those that leave you absolutely in awe of the stunning natural beauty the country is so famous for! Those green rolling hills, jagged and dramatic coastlines, pastel coloured villages and amazing waterfalls are just some of the reasons to strap on those hiking boots and hit … Continue Reading

It’s no surprise how much I relish a good Italian trip. I mean, it’s one of those countries that I could visit every week If I could (and I’m already itching to get back). Now, the thing I love most has to be all the unique places in Italy, I’d even go as far as … Continue Reading

When it finally came round to skiing in Zermatt, I just didn’t want to. I don’t even know the exact moment that changed but if I had to guess, it was probably when I put my ski boots on. See, I have very wide feet and so I struggle to find, not just comfortable ski … Continue Reading

The next morning in the Cotswold, I woke up with no aim but to cram in as many pretty little villages and towns in the Cotswolds as possible into my day. After breakfast at the Royal Oak, we set off to do just that, starting with an old favourite of mine – Bibury and it’s … Continue Reading

After a brilliant night’s sleep in Interlaken, we got up bright and early and made our way over to Niederhorn for a day of ski fun! Niederhorn is your obvious ski spot. I mean, it is, but typically, it’s more so for the locals than it is for travellers. There aren’t really ski lodges here … Continue Reading

A weekend escape to the Cotswolds is something that almost everyone needs to experience in the UK –  doesn’t matter if you call the UK home or if you’re just visiting, you just have to visit. 😀 This beautiful part of England is absolutely gorgeous (a word I used a lot over the next few … Continue Reading

Our first trip of the year took all the way to lakes and snowy Alps of Switzerland – more specifically to Interlaken before heading over to quite a few amazing places in Valais (more on those in other blog posts). We arrived into Interlaken via Zurich (we took the train from there) and after checking … Continue Reading

After spending a good six years studying in Fife, I’ve come to call this area of Scotland my second home. I mean, who wouldn’t? Unlike the vast mountain ranges of the Scottish Highlands, Fife is much more easterly meaning a little less rain and a lot more of those gorgeous rolling hills. Now, over my … Continue Reading

Croatia is one country I’d always wanted to visit! I mean, who wouldn’t, right? To be honest, I was kind of concerned that I’d overhyped it all in my head and was worried about being disappointed once we arrived. How wrong I was! Croatia lived up to (and was even more) amazing than I could … Continue Reading

One of the best things about Italy is how diverse the country is. I mean, you’ve got the gorgeous lakes like Como in the north, the best Italian Islands, picturesque cities like Rome… and that’s not me even broaching the subject of gelato! 🤣 I know I harp on about Italy all the time, but … Continue Reading

Ibiza is one of those Spanish Islands that always seems to be on our radar, especially with all its gorgeous natural beauty, stunning little villages and history. Yes, the island is known for its incredible nightlife, but there’s so much more to Ibiza than ‘rocking tunes’ (gosh, sounding like my dad more and more every … Continue Reading

One our wine trip to France, we went from one absolutely stunning Chateau, to another to yet another – the Château Belles Vignes (all of which were found on the amazing Oliver’s Travel website). It was gem and after gem and this new one did not disappoint! Alas, on arrival to Bordeaux, with minutes to … Continue Reading
