I’m sat in Bristol Airport Costa Coffee as I write this, drinking a Pepsi and feeling like an absolute fraud for doing so. For some reason, whenever I go to a coffee shop and don’t order a hot drink, I always feel like I have to explain myself to the barista, cashier, cleaner, person on the table next to me and whoever else happens to glance my way. Every. Single. Time. I get way too defensive about my orange juice, Panini, Pepsi, or lemon tart, whichever it may be. So much so that I don’t think there’s a single Costa or Starbucks employee…

4 Alternative Reads for Any Travel Lover

Most people come here for one of two things: my travel content or my awesome wit and self-deprecating sense of humour. Hehehe. Whichever of the two you’re here for, bear with me on this one alright? Because while the title of the post may not necessarily scream “PUT DOWN YOUR JAFFA CAKES AND READ ME NOW“, it may just surprise you. When I’m not travelling, I’m reading. Heck even when I am travelling, I’m reading. I’ve always loved books. When I was 5 I had the reading age of a 13-year old, and these days my superhero name would be…

Live Life By Disney’s Rules

If there was an award for Most Time Wasted on Buzzfeed, I’m telling you right now I would be one hell of a contender. You know in those all too regular times in your life when you’re standing around waiting for a bus that seems like it’ll never come, or you’re supposed to be meeting your friend on a bench somewhere but they’re late and AH STRANGERS ARE TRYING TO MAKE EYE CONTACT, AVERT EYES, LOOK DOWN, so you just aimlessly flick through things on your phone? Normally Bloglovin’ would be “The One” for this situation but excuse me, do you even realise how…

Why I’ll Always Go Back.. And You Should Too

There are a whole load of apparently open-ended debates in the ‘travel world’ (is that a thing?!) which seasoned travellers and bloggers alike enjoy weighing in on every now and again. I’m talking your riding on elephants, tourist vs traveller, trains over planes type debates – you know the ones! As far as I can remember I don’t think I’ve ever gone into any depth on any of them on here. Sure, I’ve glossed over a few, maybe expressed a few opinions here and there in passing, but as a whole I’ve avoided them. Now I’m coming out from my little hidey-hole…

This Year’s UK Travel Wishlist

Sundays are weird. My knee-jerk instinct was to write “last week I posted bla bla bla” but then I just checked the dates and it was actually just five days ago, on Sunday, that I published This Year’s European Travel Wishlist. So is it, like, factually correct to say last week if it was still technically this week? Because Sunday is the first day of the week, right? Or wrong? I don’t know. Calendars are super ambiguous these days, I just don’t know where I stand with them! Anyway, another post I published recently (avoiding saying last week as much…
