Life’s Fuzzy Moments and Why Travel Can be One of Them | 25 Hours Hotel Hamburg

Flicking back to Hamburg briefly for today’s post!  I turned to Twitter a couple of weeks ago to ask what to do with my bajillion and one photos from Hamburg, (twitter poll – what other way to answer life’s questions) and you guys told me to split my posts up, so here you are.  Hamburg pt. 2! I’m saving my favourite travel moments 2016 for a roundup post, coming soon to a blog near you, but Hamburg in general could…

A Long Weekend in Tallinn | The Picture Postcard City Break

Tallinn feels like so long ago already, and I was still there this time last week!  Time did that flying thing.  What better way to relive it than through a ridiculously long blog post though, right?  There’s something v v exciting about visiting a new part of the world, and having never been to a Baltic country before, safe to say I was v v excited for this trip with Visit Tallinn.  I wasn’t disappointed. 🙂 I actually ummed and…

Keeping Travel Budget Friendly in Winter | City Break Money Saving Hacks

Merry Tuesday, folks!  Yes I’m replacing ‘happy’ with ‘merry’ because festive and all that.  And yes I had to double check that it’s actually Tuesday because I’m thoroughly discombobulated about days and times and everything at the minute. I arrived home from Tallinn yesterday, and now it’s back to the reality of sitting at a desk with a cat incessantly trying to chew my sleeve or sit on my keyboard.  (Excuse any typos for that reason please).  So although I’m now home,…

9 Reasons Hamburg Should Be Top of Your City Break List This Winter

In case you hadn’t gathered from the 27438 Instagrams I’ve posted already, last week I spent 2 days (well, 34 hours to be precise) in Hamburg. Short trips are kinda my thing at the minute! But yes, despite having only a super short time to enjoy Hamburg, enjoy it I bloody well did. 🙂  As I expected to tbh – I’ve loved every German city I’ve visited in the past and Hamburg was no exception.  Ahh Deutschland <3 <3 <3…

Dublin in a Day | 7 Ways I Made The Most of The Quickest Trip Ever

So, Dublin.  In one day.  Just a quick hop skip and a jump across the Irish sea, back in time for tea! That sounds sarcastic, but it’s actually pretty much true.  Minus the ‘back in time for tea’ part.  I’d have been hella hungry if I’d waited until midnight. So yes, I hopped on the flight I’d booked on a whim a few weeks ago (God bless the £2 flight sale), felt weird to only be carrying a small handbag…

Leafy wall at BH Mallorca

20,000 free flights are to be given away plus some sexy 5* holidays and trips to NYC – this is not a drill!  Nor is this post sponsored, promise – the guys at Jet2 just asked me to spread the word about their competition launching tomorrow, and since they’re a company I’ve had fab experiences with, I’m more than happy to scream and shout.  Thought you guys might appreciate being told about freebie flights and holidays, y’know. 😛 So if…

The Best Beachy Mini-Break (& Perfect Blogger House) | North Wales with Menai Holiday Cottages

I keep wanting to type ‘my long Winter weekend in Wales’ then remembering it was actually a midweek break, and wasn’t wintery in the slightest.  I think this indicates how much the last few days have thrown me.  Literally feels like I’ve been somewhere much further away and am adjusting to jet lag, not just a short trip to the Welsh coast. And that’s precisely what I love about the UK. (Rants about rubbish weather will be suspended for the…
