How Solo Travel Saved My Mental Health

June 3, 2018 No Comments

When I first started this blog, I had just come back from my very first solo trip to Barcelona. During that trip, I noticed a huge change in myself, not just in my confidence, but since that point, I’ve realised how much influence solo travel has on my mental health. I think the affect that travel has on your mental state is really underrepresented, so many people talk about confidence and life lessons, but it goes…

(image sourced from Boutique Hostel Forum Zadar website. I do not own the rights to this image, it belongs to the hostel and can be found here.)   As a solo traveler, hostels are the ultimate accommodation for budget friendly sleeping, social life and safety.

A Postcard From Croatia: Visiting Zadar

May 26, 2018 2 Comments

  Zadar, Croatia was somewhere that never crossed my mind to visit, mostly because I didn’t even know it existed! One search on Skyscanner and this beautiful destination popped up, it was cheap, it was sunny and beautiful, everything I needed for a long weekend of relaxation. I went through stages where I thought about cancelling my trip, just due to time, money and overall stress trying to get this fundraising thing sorted, but ultimately I…

The Ultimate Hand Luggage Packing List

April 3, 2018 No Comments

Getting your hand luggage packing list together can be a daunting task, especially if you’re new to packing light! I remember the first time I ever had to pack hand luggage, did I have a clue what to put in there or how to get my giant bottle of suncream stashed in under 100ml? Nope! The whole liquids situation is what makes things truly difficult, but with a little bit of compromise and a lot of…

March 26, 2018 3 Comments

It’s only a few more months until I jet off to Beijing to complete my trek along the Great Wall of China with the Mental Health Foundation! It’s exciting, but I’ll admit, raising the amount I need to even qualify has got me stressing. I need to raise a minimum of £2,500 by July to be able to go on the trek, so I need every penny you can spare! In preparation, I thought I’d take…

Should you quit your job and take an adult gap year?

March 25, 2018 No Comments

We all have those days where absolutely nothing goes right and we just want to flip our desks and storm out of the office. But those days are fleeting and temporary, we may sit there and Google holidays to far off places or how to take an adult gap year and become a digital nomad, but is it actually the right step to take? When we’re having a bad day, it always feels like anywhere else is better…

Stockholm, the capital of Sweden and the home of the greatest museum on earth… the Abba museum! Oh yes, Stockholm is the perfect place to go if you’re in love with cool Scandinavian style, Dancing Queens and unusually awe inspiring metro stations (they have to be seen to be believed).
