Scottish Highland Road Trip

Before our trip from Glasgow to Edinburgh began, we decided to take a little de-tour through the mountains… …I’ll happily claim that is was the best road trip I’ve ever been on. Every route we took and corner we turned was staggeringly beautiful. We set off from Glagow following the signs for Glen Coe and Loch Lomond and drove through the winding roads for about an hour, then eventually turning back to head for Edinburgh, the city we were staying in next. Even though we managed to see the sights the weather was not on our side, it was raining most of the time so we didn’t go exploring up the mountains like others were doing. But none the less I managed to capture some photos of our drive even if it resulted in wet feet and a very muddy car… Thank you for reading, I’d love to hear if you’ve ever been to the highlands or what road trip you suggest I do next!

Glasgow Botanical Gardens

Yes you heard correct, I’m in Glasgow, Scotland and greenhouses are my new chill zones… Today I write to you from Glasgow, I’ve been here for a couple of days now and absolutely love it. The vibe here is so chilled and the people are so friendly. Anyway, I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite outings in Glasgow. The botanical gardens. Let me first start off by saying… There is no entry fee, you can come and go as you please and get ready for the picture heavy blog post. I already had to cut so many photos out as I could of easily shared like 30 pics with you! If you’re a plant lover like me, you will want take home all the succulents and Aloe Vera after visiting here. It’s totally inspiring and it makes me want to completely redesign my flat to fit aall the plants. This next room was my favourite, the plants and trees grew up to at least 20 foot tall! Thank you for reading! See …

A Mini Break to Edinburgh

How deeply have I fallen in Love with Edinburgh? Enough to feel ‘Home Sick’ when returning to London… My recently journey through Edinburgh has been wonderful. Even though it’s a bustling little city with busy streets full of eager tourists & locals doing their Christmas shopping, it was somehow a very restful and humbling trip away. I was there for four days and whist travelling home late last night, I was already planning in my mind when I could next visit again. I spent most of my trip exploring the city centre and Edinburgh’s huge Christmas market to which I dedicated a whole blog post, find it here. The whole city captured my heart, but there is one place in particular that made me return three times.. The Elephant House ‘The birthplace of Harry Potter’ is its selling point. If you didn’t know, this is where J.K Rowling claims she wrote Harry Potter. So you can guess, much like I did that it would be full of tourists and very, very busy. So I skipped going …

Edinburgh Christmas Market

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Christmas Market adventuring!! This week I write to you from Edinburgh, a place I’ve wanted to visit for so long and now I’m finally here I can’t wait to explore. As it’s almost Christmas and I’m super eager, I head straight towards Edinburgh’s famous Christmas Market. Let’s start by saying, it’s the biggest Christmas market I have ever been to. But in all honesty it’s way more than just a market. The whole city centre is transformed into a winter wonderland. There’s ice skating at St Andrew Square, The Street of Light on George Street and the main event with fairground rides, foot-long bratwurst sausages and mulled wine at East Princes St Gardens. I really had to cut down the amount of photos I included in the blog post (believe it or not)… There were so many cute & unique stalls at Edinburgh’s Christmas, nothing like Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland… (sorry home town). This one below was my fave, completely over the top, just the way I like …

4 Fun Things To Do In Budapest

Last month me & my boyfriend took a trip to the wonderful Budapest… Where do I start?! I love Budapest. It’s one city with 2 personalities. Formally split in two cities, Buda on the western bank of the Danube and Pest on the east. I loved the views and relaxed vibe of Buda and the upbeat and liveliness of Pest. Everything is easy to get to, Ubers are cheap and so is everything else. Coming back to London was a struggle! Here are a few things that make me want to take a trip back to Budapest!  1. Visit Szechenyi Thermal Baths There are so many Thermal Baths in Budapest but this one I believe is the largest. 2 large outdoor pools, hot indoor pools, saunas, steam rooms & much more. I visited at 10am and it was fairly quiet, next time I’d get there a little earlier. Overall I loved the Baths and could of easily sat in the hot pools all day long. 2. Grab a slice from Pizzica Honestly some of the best …
