My Greek Getaway: Crete

I put off writing this post for a while because, I knew it meant I had to accept that my holiday is well and truly over. After a week and a half back in the UK, this is something I’m just not quite ready to do yet… However, although all this reminiscing may be somewhat…

My Greek Getaway: Syros

Hello and welcome to the first edition of ‘I miss my holiday and want to go back’. Now that I am officially home in the UK, I’m wondering if that would be a more apt name for this blog post. But for the sake of consistency, and my love for alliteration, I’ve decided to stick with My…

My Greek getaway: Athens

As you will know from my previous post about my dream dress, I am currently sunning myself up (burning) in Greece for my family summer holiday. What began as a trip to Athens for a family friend’s wedding, blossomed into a three-week long tour of three gorgeous destinations. ‘When in Greece’ right? As our debut…

The Coolest Museums in Toulouse

Believe it or not, I did actually try to inject a little bit of culture into my life whilst I was studying abroad. I’ll admit it, I claimed to get most of this culture through discovering the food that was on offer, but in an attempt to prove that I’m not just a greedy, lazy student, I did…

Exploring the French Riviera

How to travel for less

When it comes to saving the pennies and going away, unfortunately, we usually have to make a choice between the two. The fact is that the words budgeting and holiday just don’t normally fit into the same sentence, as much as we wish that they did. Since coming on my year abroad, I have been…

Spa Weekend on the Spanish Border

So it appears that I am somewhat addicted to mountain getaways. Less than a week after my weekend skiing in Saint-Lary, I was packing my suitcase for another overnight stay in the Pyrenees. This time, I was heading to the pretty little country of Andorra! The saying goes that good things come in small packages, and…

Skiing in Saint-Lary

One of the best things about living in Toulouse is that I am only a mere few hours drive away from the Pyrenees. As someone who has been brought up in probably one of the flattest countries on earth, I have been so lucky to be able to spend time in the mountains whilst on my…

Christmas in London

The idea of going to London near Christmas is pretty marmite-esque. For some people, it fills them with joy and excitement, for others, it fills them with a sense of sheer dread. This year I fell into the former category and decided to head to the capital just a few days before Christmas. London at…

Pyrenees paradise

There are few views more spectacular than those you find up in the mountains. Unfortunately, back in England, living in possibly one of the flattest areas ever, these views don’t come around all that often. That’s why the Pyrenees became one of my top destinations to visit this year, and what better time to escape…
