A winter weekend in the French Riveria

When France is between 1 and 2 hours away by air, it is entirely possible to explore it over a weekend period. So with a cheap flight, we did just that. Although the weather wasn’t as hot as I was hoping for (16 degrees the high, and quite chilly after sunset), so if you are travelling in the winter months, pack a coat! Where we went Nice You’ll fly to...

For a great day out, look to the National Trust

I used to think that having a National Trust membership, meant that you were either old, boring or a family. However, I have held a National Trust membership for the past two years, and I can now revise my opinions. What is the National Trust and where is it? The National Trust is one of the UK’s largest charties, and was founded in 1895. Its purpose is to...

Things I have learnt travelling with a photographer

Travelling and photography go hand in hand. It is not often these days that I don’t go anywhere without a camera (or my phone). The perks of modern technology eh! Whereas rewind to 1998 when I went on a school trip to London, with a hand written journal and two disposable cameras with 27 shots in each. Not knowing what I had captured until I could have the...

A spa with a view at QC Terme, Chamonix

Hands up who likes a spa? I know I do. Well how about a spa with a view? Before I go on, I’d like to clarify that I am not a seasoned spa goer. In fact, I can count on one hand the number of times I have been to a proper day spa. Whilst in Chamonix (France) recently, we stumbled across the QC Terme Spa, which is a newly opened Italian inspired spa. Chamonix is...

Two days in Gozo, Malta

Going to Malta and not visiting Gozo is like going to New York City and not visiting Brooklyn. It is quite a trek to get there granted, especially if you go by public transport. However, it is just beautiful. It has Instagramable doors, perfect little bays to swim in and a more chilled vibe than that of the larger Island of Malta. Getting to Gozo To get to the island...

Ideas for Winter trips in Europe

Winter time is the time when we cosy up in chunky knits, boots and scarfs. It gets darker and much colder, but that doesn’t mean we should snuggle up indoors with the fire on and a hot chocolate (though that idea is also quite appealling). Getting out and about in the Winter can be just as fun and excting as in the Summer, with a number of activities such as...

Travelling through Malta and Gozo by bus

Before travelling to Malta, we considered and reconsidered hiring a car vs public transport. On a previous trip to the Balkans, we hired a car. It was amazing – we had so much flexiblity and saw so much too. However, it was expensive. When planning our trip, I read up on other blogs, as well as took advice from family and friends who had travelled there. In the...

The doors of Malta and where to find them

Doors are the ultimate beginning to a fairytale. A door has an air of mystery about it; it is intriguing to know what may lie behind it. In Malta, you will have plenty of opportunities to imagine your own fairytale story. Down every quaint street, and around every corner, you will find the most exquisite doors. All brightly coloured, and hand carved, and matched...

For an awe-inspiring road trip: look to Scotland

For a stretch of land of relatively small size, the British Isles host some of the world’s most breathtaking scenic routes. Many will be familiar with the epically long trips found in larger countries, but few countries have as diverse and breathtaking scenic routes as the UK. There’s plenty of it, too; Britain hosts 200,000 miles of road with the majority of that...
