The Ultimate Place to Stay if You LOVE Hiking

The Ultimate Place to Stay if You LOVE Hiking

I've said it before and I'll say it again: if you go to Tenerife for ONLY the beach, you're selling yourself short! I fell in LOVE with Tenerife's lesser-known side of jungle hiking and long walks. Our first night was spent at a mountain hostel, and BOY was that a great introduction to Tenerife. You drive up [...]

A Hiking Day Trip From Edinburgh: The Pentlands Nine Mile Burn

A Hiking Day Trip From Edinburgh: The Pentlands Nine Mile Burn

Ever feel like you need to get out of the city and see some nature? I sure do! The past weekend, I was feeling a bit sluggish. Instead of taking a day to rest, I decided to get out and see some Scottish nature! Sometimes all you need is a little fresh air. I hiked [...]

5 Reasons to Travel to Mongolia ASAP

5 Reasons to Travel to Mongolia ASAP

The Landscapes Mongolia is one place that has some seriously beautiful, untouched sights. If you go out into the West, you probably won't even see another traveller on the most popular trail! People typically don't go to Mongolia for the cities- they go for the landscape, and I can confirm: they're entirely worth it. The [...]

A Different Side of Tenerife: Relaxing at Hotel La Quinta Roja

A Different Side of Tenerife: Relaxing at Hotel La Quinta Roja

Tenerife is so much more than a place to party and drink to your heart's content. If you're just going to Tenerife for Playa De Las Americas, you're selling yourself short. The nature (from deserts to jungle) and small towns are what make this island so special. My favourite? Garachico. After climbing El Teide, Phil [...]

Being a Kid Again: A Disneyland Paris Guide

Being a Kid Again: A Disneyland Paris Guide

When I was younger, I was living in California and being homeschooled. This was great for many reasons, but the most important (by far!) was that my mum, sister, and I could get off-peak Disneyland season tickets. They were much cheaper than regular tickets (though prices have certainly gone up since then), and we got [...]

how to pack carry-on only during winter

how to pack carry-on only during winter

I love the freedom of having no checked bags. It's truly a great feeling. You can show up to the airport a little later, you don't have to stress about stolen/damaged/lost items, and you just walk off the plane into whatever place you've just arrived! During Summer, packing carry-on luggage only is easy, as you're [...]

How to Travel Switzerland on a Budget

How to Travel Switzerland on a Budget

Where to Stay Honestly, accommodation is EXPENSIVE. If you're staying in the cities, I'd do some research ahead of time. If you're travelling with others, it's probably cheaper to book a hotel room than to stay in hostels. Hostels can be incredibly pricey here, but if you're a solo traveller, it might still be cheaper [...]
