North Coast 500 | Out West

Road trippin' The North Coast 500 (or NC500 for short) is becoming a hugely popular road trip (and rightly so) through the rugged and beautiful north of Scotland! You'd probably need 4 – 5 days to do it justice but we were in the area anyways so took the very scenic route home to Fife…

Scottish Staycation | Isle of Mull Edition 

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…

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…

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…

Take a Look up the Railtrack: From Amsterdam to Barcelona

It’s been a while since my last post as unfortunately I’ve been doing more working than tourist-ing these days. So I thought I would reminisce about last summer when I went inter-railing with some pals. There are probably two ways to inter-rail. You can plan your route and book your accommodation accordingly or you can…

So Good They Named It Twice, Like Peri-Peri Chicken.

New York, New York! There are so many movies and TV shows set in New York City and every time I watch one I am insanely jealous of these characters getting to live it up in the big apple! I was lucky enough to visit NYC last summer and now I understand the I heart…

A Fridge Full of Memories

Inspired by my brother and sister-in-law, last summer I decided to start collecting magnets of all the places I visit. A nice way to look back on adventures when you get up to aimlessly look in the fridge. Unfortunately I have misplaced some magnets in transit but I am optimistic that they will turn up,…

A Moment of Clarity

Last summer I went on a three week adventure around Europe with some of my pals. We meticulously planned our journey but half way through decided to take a detour through Slovenia and Austria, mainly because after spending a week and a half on trains we couldn’t bear the thought of getting a night train…
