Travel wishlist for 2018

1st January, 2018

It’s been a long time since I took part in a travel linkup, so I thought I’d kick off the year by sharing my 2018 travel wishlist. I don’t have any trips booked yet but I’ve got lots of ideas on where I’d like to go this year. Winter sun in Seville I sometimes find […]

My 2016 Travel Plans and Wishlist

1st January, 2016

Is it just me or did 2015 just fly by? I can’t believe it’s 2016 already. As with last year, I’m joining in the travel linkup hosted by Emma, Angie and Jessi to share my travel wishlist and plans for 2016. Unfortunately last year I didn’t really get to tick off any of the places […]

15 of my favourite feelings

1st November, 2015

Feeling inspired by Claire Marshall’s video and tying in to this month’s linkup theme “Our favourite things”, I thought I’d share 15 of my favourite feelings in the form of photos. 1. The thrill of exploring somewhere new 2. Achieving something you never thought you would 3. Sand between your toes 4. The first snowfall […]

A place you can’t get out of your head

31st August, 2015

Having travelled to more than 30 countries, I’ve fallen in love with so many places. Some that I’m longing to go back to and others I’ve returned to multiple times. But there’s one place in particular that has been on my mind a lot lately. Sydney. My hometown. Maybe its the fact that my last […]

Travel Contrasts: How Travel Has Changed Me

1st August, 2015

I really struggled with this month’s travel linkup topic: travel contrasts. The destinations I have visited, while many, are not incredibly diverse. The majority of my travelling has been done in the Western part of the world so I’ve never experienced huge contrasts in the places I’ve been. But despite this, looking back I now […]

My travel personality

3rd July, 2015

In this month’s travel linkup hosted by Kelly, Emma, Rebecca and Catherine, we’re talking about travel personalities. While my style of travel has changed a bit over the years, I think my travel personality has stayed fairly consistent. I can pretty much be summed up in the following categories: The Planner For me, part of […]

Souvenirs

1st June, 2015

In my early days of travelling I would always try to buy a souvenir in every foreign country or city that I visited. Two of my favourite things to collect were teddy bears and guide books (am I the lamest person ever? Probably). This was always problematic when it came time to return home – […]

Things I’d Never Do Again – Lessons Learnt at Oktoberfest

1st May, 2015

Let’s rewind back to September 2012. I had just landed my first job in London. They didn’t actually need me to start for a couple of weeks so naturally I wanted to fill that time with one last holiday before returning to the world of employment for the first time in 3 months. Oktoberfest had […]

My travel guilty pleasures

31st March, 2015

Whether they care to admit it or not, everyone has a guilty pleasure. Perhaps its watching reruns of Gossip Girl on Netflix, scoffing down an entire block of chocolate all by yourself or dancing along to Kelly Clarkson at your desk when you think nobody is watching (or maybe that’s just me…). This month’s travel […]
