A Weekend in Sligo, Ireland

•••
Sligo, Ireland is a thriving city of with a culture of adventure, food and the arts. Disclaimer - my family lives in Sligo, which has changed so much in the years since we first moved there in 1995 - I remember my first impression of Sligo as a grey town, nearly 20 years ago now. Sligo has changed its tune however to become a vibrant hub of creative communit[...]

5 Things To Do in San Francisco

•••
San Francisco is many different things to many different people. And some of those people have been there for a long time, baking bread since the late 19th century, opening clubs in Depression era 1930's, erm, fighting battles and such. As I had a whirlwind 48 hours to spend in San Francisco, I knew I would only be scratching the surface of what the city has[...]

26 awesome things to do in Trondheim

•••
Can you name two things that Norway is famous for? Exactly, fjords and northern lights. As Trondheim isn't particularly famous for either of them (unless you are very lucky in the deepest of winter), this city in central Norway, in a region called Trøndelag, is rarely found on traveller's itineraries. It is not the Capital of Northern Lights like Tromsø, or [...]

The Travelettes Guide to Madeira

•••
Rising up from the Atlantic like a little miracle, it's not hard to see that the island exists because it is a volcano... albeit one that is sleeping silently. For now. And yet the same can not be said for the island. Madeira is a place that pumps and pulses with an energy I didn't expect to find during my recent visit. Having become fairly well acquainte[...]

The sun has recently peeped out for us in the UK, and it has given us the taste of summer’s excitement… and we want more. I’ve been hearing many friends begin planning European getaways and wher[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Liverpool

•••
"But... why?" was the most common reaction to us announcing that we were going to Liverpool for the weekend. Why? The honest answer is: because the plane tickets were the cheapest we could find for the long weekend. Before booking them, we only had a vague image of the most populated city of Northern England — and it was one that involved constant drizzle, a[...]

Welcome to Queenstown

•••
What a ride it's been, those last 10 days in New Zealand. I'm writing this from my flight back to San Francisco, still buzzing from the crazy load of impressions and experiences I've been able to collect over the past few days. The pain in my upper right arm puts a smile on my face as it transports me right back to the feeling of sitting front row rafting do[...]

How to make the perfect Paella

•••
Spaniards beware - a Brit is about to share with you a recipe for paella and if by the end of this you are left fuming and culturally outraged then please share with us below your secret family recipes! But in my defence (here I am apologising before I've even mentioned the word rice) I am a big paella lover who has eaten her fair share, and if I'm honest I [...]

21 Reasons to Love Rotterdam

•••
I've come to learn from my time living  in Amsterdam that there are a few unwritten rules you must follow: 1. Speak English better than any native speaker. 2. Run over at least three tourists a year on your bike. 3. Hate Rotterdam. Well, unfortunately these are three rules I'm almost instantly going to fail at (apart from maybe no. 2, I'm on [...]
