Backyard Adventures 4, Glastonbury

Home to hippies, spiritualists, a quirky high street and one of the most famous festivals in the world. I am talking about Glastonbury, the small town which 250,000 people every year will come to appreciate some of the world’s biggest and best music artists.

Backyard Adventures 3, St. Ives

Considering Charlie and I didn’t do so much for Valentine’s day and it’s our one year anniversary this weekend (yay!), we decided to take a weekend trip to St. Ives. St. Ives will be the third place to be featured in the backyard adventures series as it is located just two hours away from my home in the beautiful county of Cornwall.

Backyard Adventures 2, Bath

I don’t know if any of you will be able to empathise with me, but you know when a place is so close you don’t feel the need to explore it immediately? Well, with most of the places I am listing in Backyard Adventures, this is definitely the case. I keep postponing it, promising myself I will find the time to truly explore but I never do. This blog series has given me the perfect opportunity and motivation to go outside and explore where I live. For the first in the series, I wrote about my high school town Cheddar and next up is Bath, my university town.

Backyard Adventures 1, Cheddar.

I am a country girl, always have been and probably always will be. I live in the heart of Somerset amidst with the cows, sheep and tractors. So I am going to take you on a tour to the sights around my home, for the next couple of weeks I thought I’d write a series of beautiful places in England that you (yes, you) have to visit.

Guest Post: Skiing in Italy

With so much uni work at the moment, I thought it would be nice for Charlie (my boyfriend) to write a post on his recent trip to Italy, so that I can crack on with some uni work. Blogging is hard and takes a lot of time and effort and right now uni is my priority. Plus I thought it’d be pretty cool if he told you guys about his trip. Don’t be too harsh on him, he’s new to the blogging world so leave him some love. 🙂 – S x

Valentine Gifts for the Travel Obsessed

I’m not a massive Valentine’s Day person, never have been and I probably never will be but I love buying presents and will take any opportunity to do so. Especially considering mine and Charlie’s anniversary is right around the corner. I find that Valentine’s Day is always a tricky one, it’s not quite as special or important as a birthday or Christmas so you don’t want to spend too much but you don’t want to be ungenerous. So, I am here to help! I have compiled a list of my favourite gifts, naturally they’re all travel related and I think most of these would work well for any travel obsessed girlfriend or boyfriend.

Travel Tips: What Technology Should You Bring Abroad

If all technology suddenly disappeared today, our whole world would come to a stop. As 21st century human beings, we cannot function without it in our lives. Most of us can’t function 24 hours an hour without looking at our phones/laptops/iPads, so when it comes to travelling for a month, how do you decide what technology you should bring?
