    Royal Mile Backpackers Hostel, Edinburgh | February 2020

    Our Edinburgh choice of stay. When we were looking at booking a long weekend to Edinburgh (check out this blog post first), we figured it would be pretty costly. We checked out the hotels and we were correct. That only meant one thing. Hostel searching. It was pretty easy to find a hostel in Edinburgh. I mean, there are loads of them. The hard thing was deciding which one we wanted to go for. We limited the search to the center as neither of us had been to Edinburgh before and we knew we would get lost otherwise. Not to promote myself as a cheapskate but we opted for the cheapest…

    Edinburgh | February 2020

    Edinburgh – 3 Day Trip Jeez, here I am sat writing this post in August and it is about a trip which happened in February. Yes, you heard me correctly. February!! How long ago does February sound? But, like everyone else in the world, Coronavirus has had a massive impact on my life. My blog has unfortunately been one of the aspects affected. Hence, here we are talking about February in August. What a life at the minute. However, it is nice to write about this because it reminds me of better days when the world was normal and I was shipping about everywhere enjoying life. If you have read…

    Budapest | March 2019

    Okay, so, I’m really going to try and keep my excitement in but…   I WENT TO BUDAPEST FOR MY BIRTHDAY!   Sorry guys, I failed. As you can tell, I was super excited to have the opportunity to discover Budapest. Now, we went for four days and they were PACKED full of activities so this may be a slightly longer post than normal. But stay with me because I have all you need to know to have the BEST time in Budapest.    Myself and my brother, Tom, decided to celebrate my birthday by visiting Budapest. We chose to use the cheapest way possible and flew with Ryanair and…

    Getting Old | Birthday Haul!

    Aaaaand here we go again! Birthday time! It really doesn’t feel like two minutes since I was writing this post all about my Llama Walking. How time really does fly. A lot has happened in the past year and not all of it has been good but right now I am in a good place with every aspect of my life. What more could I want when turning 24!  Yeah, you heard right, I’m 24. I’m getting so old! So, this post isn’t exactly going to be about my birthday shenanigans. Shock horror! A birthday post that’s not about my birthday. I mean, it is but I’m going to discuss…

    London | January 2019

    LONDON! I bloody love London, I really do, and I was lucky enough to visit once again. I visited London in December of 2017 with Ginger but this time it was my brother, Tom’s, turn. And the reason for this?   In terms of travel, we decided to travel via train from Doncaster, direct to London. Once again, the best time to look into your tickets is three months before. This is when the cheaper tickets become available from the Trainline.com and you can travel from London and back for as little as £25, as we did.   For our first day, we decided to check out the museums. Most…

If you’re not interested then you’re probably better off clicking the big red X at the top but I’d appreciate if you stuck with me, if only for a little while. So, if you have been following me for a while then you will know that I was…
