Croeso i Gymru/Welcome to Wales!

Around two weeks ago I made a big life change, moving from South West London to just out side of Cardiff in South Wales. I’m lucky enough to work for a company with offices all over the UK so managed to transfer in my current role. The only real difference is that I now have…

Paris, France

Paris is a beautiful city and my photos don’t even come close to doing the place justice. I travelled to Paris on the Eurostar, which is so easy and convenient I could easily have been on a work trip to somewhere in the UK. I found the train much calmer than flying and would definitely…

East Coast, Australia

It’s hard to believe it has already been 8 months since I returned from my trip to Australia in March 2017. I travelled with my Aunt up the East coast, from Sydney to Brisbane, over two weeks with plenty of stops along the way. First stop, Sydney! I had of course read my trusty Lonely…

Pune, India

I have just returned from my second business trip to India, visiting one of our service centres in Pune, the first being back in October. I think television has desensitised us: I saw children running in the streets and family’s living in slums but I wasn’t shocked. What I saw of the country was stark contrast,…

Budapest, Hungary

I’ve always heard great things about Budapest, so when I had the chance to go on a long weekend with some friends I jumped at the chance. The weather was extraordinarily good for the time of the year and I had a wonderful time. The exact details of the trip are fuzzy but here are…

Denmark and Sweden

I only spent a night in the Danish city of Copenhagen but I got the impression of a clean, design focused city. Copenhagen is not a huge place, definitely best to explore on foot and take in the sights. We skipped the Tivoli Gardens, which given our limited window of exploration seemed overpriced and crowded. Instead, we took in the…

Amsterdam, Netherlands

I have been neglecting this blog terribly so am now playing catch up on the last six months of travels. Back in May, I spent a weekend in Amsterdam with two good friends. While I have been to Amsterdam on two previous occasions, this was the first trip I had taken to the city as an…

Dublin, Ireland

I have just returned from my solo adventure to Dublin. It was trip of many firsts, my first time travelling alone, the first time I had stayed in a hostel and the first time I had been to Ireland; it makes sense that this is my first post! Day One – Grafton Street Area & Temple…
