As 2018 drew to a close, I thought a lot about the year that had just gone passed. More than anything, I felt incredibly grateful to get the opportunity to travel as much as I did. I know that travel is a luxury that not everyone can afford, even if the travel you are doing…Continue Reading “My Top Three Travel Destinations of 2018”

Having seen quite a few countries by Eastern Europe and my first trip to the Baltics last year, I’ve grown quite fond of that part of Europe so it’s no surprise that my recent adventure landed me in Riga, Latvia! I had an image of Riga in my head before we visited which did not…Continue Reading “A Weekend In Riga”

Plettenberg Bay

The third stop on our sixteen day Garden Route itinerary was probably my favourite place of all. Plettenberg Bay ended up being more amazing that I could have ever imagined, and for reasons that I would never have guessed. After coming home from the trip, I was reading through my correspondence with Andre from The…Continue Reading “Guide To Plettenberg Bay”

Central European Roadtrip

For anyone that knows me, they know that I like to travel around places that are a little less popular or well known.

Why you should visit lake lucerne

I had wanted to visit Switzerland since as long as I can remember, but because the country is notorious for being expensive I put it on the long finger. Finally, an opportunity presented itself where a roadtrip would take me across the border from Germany into Switzerland for two magical nights by Lake Lucerne! The…Continue Reading “Why You Should Visit Lake Lucerne”

Climbing Croagh Patrick

Climbing Croagh Patrick is something that I always wanted to do. Croagh Patrick which is nicknamed ‘The Reek’ is a mountain in County Mayo. The mountain is 764m (2,507ft) tall and is the third highest mountain in Mayo after Mweelrea and Nephin (but is undoubtedly the most popular!). Located roughly 8km from Westport, Croagh Patrick…Continue Reading “Climbing Croagh Patrick: The Full Guide”
