• Our travel highlights from 2018

    As 2018 is almost behind us, I thought it would be nice to take a look back over some of our travel highlight from the year just gone – especially with so much to look forward to in the year ahead! It’s been such a busy year that it was almost too hard to pull together the highlights, but there were a few particular getaways that stood out to me. And here they are!   1.

  • How to spend a budget weekend in Edinburgh!

    We recently went for a long weekend break to Edinburgh, Scotland. The aim was to enjoy a city break on a budget, and we started this off in style with a nine hour overnight bus ride. The journey was a bit of a struggle, but for £48 for the two of us to get from London to Edinburgh, and back, we were happy to take the bus. We arrived early Thursday morning, it was cold and had just started to snow. But this felt appropriate for Scotland! But it wasn’t long until the sun was shining and we were off exploring the city. Here’s how we spent a budget weekend…

  • Beers, bands and beaches: Our weekend away in Perranporth

    Last month we spent a weekend in one of our favourite places on earth, Perranporth.

And if you’ve never been to Perranporth, it absolutely needs to be on your bucket list! It’s a small seaside town in Cornwall, and if you’re anything like us and love being by the sea, you’ll love it there. Perranporth has one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK. We visit Perranporth at least twice a year – but more than that…

  • Free (or very cheap!) things to do in Granada

    Granada is such a beautiful place with so much to see, that it’s actually quite easy to explore this Spanish city on a budget! There are plenty of things that you can do for free, or at the very least, for under 10 euros. We stayed in the city for Danny’s birthday and absolutely fell in love. Here is our guide to a budget weekend in Granada, and experiencing the city for (almost) free. Take a walk up to the Alhambra The Alhambra Palace and fortress can be found in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, and the walk uphill to the Alhambra is beautiful. As you walk alongside the tree…
