8 Exceedingly British Treats to Try in London

•••
As a Brit, I’m happy to admit that we are a nation of uninventive eaters. Besides the humble Yorkshire pudding, and adopting curry as our own, we have pretty much stayed off the world’s culinary map -and for good reason. Interestingly, we do have a lot of great restaurants and the food scene in London is amazing. But it revolves heavily around the food of ot[...]

Witnessing the Display of Fall Colors in Scotland

•••
Fall is one of my favourite times to travel around Scotland. The offseason is the perfect time for a road trip - not only are there fewer tourists on the road and everything becomes more affordable, but the landscape also presents itself from its best side! Two of the best regions in Scotland to witness the fiery display of fall colours are Perthshire and th[...]

Dark tourism: The Graveyard Tour at Highgate Cemetery, London

•••
It’s my first time in London during autumn for several years, and I’m pretty excited by the genuinely okay-ish weather the UK has been seeing so far. So in the spirit of autumn and all things naughty/nice and pumpkin spiced I decided to embrace the season and explore one of London’s most impressive graveyards to get knee-deep in seasonal feels and capture[...]

12 Hours in Brighton - A day trip from London

•••
I fell in love with the seaside of southern England on a trip to Southampton earlier this year and when my partner planned our vegan foodie getaway to London this autumn, I knew I wanted to return to the coast for a brief stint. And what better city is there, to go to on a day trip from London, than Brighton! And so we booked our tickets, made a list of s[...]

7 Secret Bars & Restaurants In The UK

•••
There’s nothing like the thrill of finding delicious food and drink in an undiscovered place. So-called hidden or “secret” restaurants have become increasingly popular over the last few years. Many have taken inspiration from old illegal speakeasy’s erected in the 1880’s after the idea came overseas from New York. Nowadays, it’s a lot less illegal and a lot [...]

How to visit 12 Scottish islands in 2 weeks

•••
Earlier this year, I counted how many Scottish Islands I had visited since I moved here in 2013. I don't usually count countries, but I thought - to heck with it - and did it anyway. With 790 islands, some inhabited, but many just pure wilderness - there is no way to ever "see them all", and so the counting became about something different than just ticking [...]

Island Hopping around Scotland

•••
Most people, when they think about island life, see images of tropical islands somewhere in the Pacific or Indian ocean; palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze; sipping on rum cocktails while people/wildlife watching on the beach; digging their toes into the warm sand. But when I think of island life, I envision something slightly different - the serene bea[...]

Why I Love Exploring My Backyard Instead of Traveling the World

•••
Back in 2014 I lived what you might want to call 'the dream'. I had just finished my studies, started working as a freelance travel blogger, writer and social media editor, and traveled the world. Within 18 months I traveled to Norway, France, England, Scotland, Croatia, Israel, Spain - twice, Curacao, Germany, the Netherlands, Shetland, Zambia, Tanzania, In[...]

Christmas at Hogwarts: The Complete Guide to the Harry Potter Studio Tour London

•••
Here I am on the train, it's finally happening. I boarded this train in London - had a little trouble finding the platform at first, but a helpful stranger took my by my hand and showed me the way. I waited impatiently for the train doors to open, quickly found my seat among others excited faces and now I'm here. Whisking through the city's suburbs, leaving [...]

On the tracks of Game of Thrones: A Causeway Coast Guide

•••
I can't remember when exactly the Giant's Causeway made it onto my bucket list, but I've certainly been dreaming about visiting this place in Northern Ireland for many years. Little did I know that the entire Causeway Coast is a stunningly scenic road trip - and who doesn’t love a good road trip? I spent about 2 and a half days at the Causeway Coast and [...]
