Life

A trip to Thailand doesn’t quite feel complete without coming face to face with some elephants. Bathing these beautiful creatures is one of Chiang Mai’s top tourist attractions which has resulted in a large number of companies offering the activity, making it extremely hard to decide who to hand over your hard earned pennies to. My number one rule for choosing which company to go with is to look for a sanctuary that looks after and cares for the elephants and one that does NOT offer riding. I love animals and

You could say that we went from one end of the spectrum to the other after departing Dubai and arriving in Bangkok. From a super modern and almost peaceful place to the mayhem of tuk-tuk drivers, street food stalls and loud music. It was very different to say the least. Arriving late at night on Khao San Road trying to find the sign for our accommodation amongst the herds of tourists partying on the street and locals trying to usher us into their bars, convincing us to buy buckets, shots

We booked our flights for travelling through STA Travel which I’ll go into more detail about in a later post. The first flight we booked was London Gatwick to Bangkok which included a stop in Dubai for a few hours. We decided instead of stopping for a few hours, we would stay in Dubai for a couple of days and break up that extra long journey to Bangkok which also meant we’d get to explore Dubai, a place neither of us had been to before. The night before we flew, we

On our very first date my boyfriend and I spoke about how we would love to go travelling one day but never did I think 3 years on we’d actually be about to set off on our journey together. I’m currently writing this as an excited but emotional and nervous wreck at the thought that shortly I’ll be sat on a plane heading into the unknown. Travel is one of my biggest passions. There is nothing I love more than discovering new places and I hate staying in one place for too

Grab a cup of tea, you’re in for a long one! Seeing everyone graduating recently made me think back to my graduation a whole 3 years ago now. I can’t even describe how quickly that 3 years has gone by or to be honest, how quickly the 3 years at university went by either. It’s a topic I’ve never really touched upon since I actually graduated when I wrote a no doubt cringe-worthy post back in 2014 which you can have a little laugh at here if you fancy. I’m

When I was younger, I thought by 24 I’d have my own business and be living in a penthouse apartment in New York overlooking Central Park and spending my evenings drinking cocktails and dining at the fanciest of restaurants. In reality, I’m currently sat in my bedroom in Leeds working, constantly wondering why the money in my bank account just goes so quickly when I have nothing to show for it and well, a holiday to New York would be a dream let alone living there. I wanted to be

There is nothing I love more than going on holiday. If I had the money, I would just spend my time hopping on and off planes and discovering different places. Now March is here and the days are getting that bit longer and the sun is finally starting to appear, it’s that time of year where we’re planning our holidays and working out where to go. You want a place that’s going to please everyone you’re going with and have you talking about it long after you’ve stepped off the plane

Yep you heard me right…Chocolate Chip, Oreo and Nutella fluffy pancakes! Could a dessert be anymore perfect?! Pancakes should not just be for pancake day. They should be for everyyy day of the year! Okay maybe not, I don’t think our waistlines would thank us for that but if you’re looking for an indulgent treat to impress guests or just have all to yourself (I won’t tell anyone!) then you’ve come to the right place. I’d never made American style pancakes before and I was determined to give them a try. Luckily,

A Weekend In Edinburgh

P2117908

We like to do something special for Valentines. Last year we went to Budapest which was absolutely amazing and you can read all about it here. This year however, we went somewhere slightly closer to home…Edinburgh. We spent the weekend in the Scottish capital as Valentines Day falls inconveniently on a Tuesday this year. It was such a nice weekend and my first time in Edinburgh and well, Scotland too! We picked a fab weekend weather-wise. I’m talking freezing cold temperatures where you can’t feel your hands which made photo

I had the most incredible couple of days last weekend staying at the stunning Aphrodite’s Luxury Boutique Hotel in Lake Windermere. I was lucky enough to stay at this hotel just over a year ago and ever since that first time I have been DYING to return so I was over the moon to be able to stay there again last weekend. I didn’t think it was possible for the hotel to improve from the first time round but it was actually even nicer than before making my jaw drop even
