Scottish Staycation | Isle of Mull EditionΒ 

Last week we spent a couple of days on the beautiful Scottish island of Mull. We loved it, so let us help you decide if the Isle of Mull is the place for you. It probably will be. If you’re into beautiful rainbow harbour towns, Mull is the place for you. Tobermory is a pretty…

Happy Birthday Brother! πŸŽ‰

You would have been 26 today, Liam.  You were dealt a pretty brutal hand. You were taken far too soon but I think you’ll agree with me when I say what time you did have you spent well. I always remember you would spend money on your hobbies, your guitars, your fishing and your cooking….

Everyone’s Got Unfinished Business With Barcelona

Well that’s what Frank Lampard said. I’m pretty sure he was talking about football but I think this statement is applicable to the city more generally. Myself and Calum spent a day in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago (8 months ago now, ooops) and only covered the tiniest fraction of it. We certainly have…

Never Go Hungry In Bruges

A couple of weeks ago we went to Bruges for a weekend away. We spent the weekend exploring the fairytale-esque centre of Bruges, eating amazing food and drinking good beer. It was an amazing couple of nights and I already can’t wait to go back to Bruges to do some more exploring! Here are some…

A day of design with Laura Spring

Today I was lucky enough to tag along to a print screening workshop at designer Laura Spring’s studio in Glasgow. To give a bit of context, I work for Young Scot who are the national youth information and citizenshipΒ charity for 11 – 25 year olds. (I may, or may not have had to look on…

Hi Ho, Hi Ho it’s… oh the train is late.

Day 3: What are your top five pet peeves? When I was thinking about what I was going to write for today, I was really proud of myself because I didn’t think I had any pet peeves. But then I thought back to the last time I was irritated and it was on a train….

The Journey

Day 2: Where would you like to be in ten years? I HATE this question. Probably because I associate it with the stress of getting asked this in an interview. I don’t know! Just hire me and we’ll figure the rest out later. I was asked this in my last job interview, I can’t remember…

Fight for the fairy tale, it does exist.

Day 1: Discuss your current relationship. In my relationship I am much like every other person who has ever been in love. I’m referring to the fact that I think that I am the only person in the world who has ever been in love. Much like the way you are when you get your…

Copenhagen On The Cheap

I love city breaks. And it’s pretty easy to get to a lot of great cities from Edinburgh. My most recent weekend away was to Copenhagen. I like to think we did Copenhagen on a shoe-string. So this is just a bit of chat about what we got up to. First thing’s first, we got…

Q & A with Zoe: Recent Summer Holiday

A couple of weeks back I went on my first “beach holiday” and was keen to keep a diary of what I got up to. Day one was pages and pages of irrelevant detail and then I never bothered with the rest of the days. It’s been a couple of weeks now and I still…

Using cutlery from the outside in: The Dome

To celebrate my first pay day Calum and I decided to go out for dinner and drinks to celebrate, it was a date night if you will. We originally wanted to go to Β Chaophraya but when we went to reserve a table they had two options. 5pm or 10pm. We couldn’t go at 5pm as…

This Is Home

So, on the 1st of May I was supposed to be flying to the other side of the world by myself to have an adventure. Instead I spent the day drinking with my best friend and falling asleep by 7pm. But I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Because he is the adventure. And…
