A Bit About Me

I live in North East England but am originally from the Isle of Man. I’m a full time travel blogger and am obsessed with good food and drink, books and planning my next trip.

I’ve visited over 50 countries and have lived in Edinburgh, New York City and Dubai. My first big adventure was travelling around New Zealand, Australia’s East Coast, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand for three months. I’m happy to travel solo but sometimes my partner comes along for the ride.

I write about UK adventures as well as destinations further afield, and I cover a mix of luxury experiences and intrepid adventures. I’m always open to new things!

The Hidden Gems I’ve Found

“I love exploring the UK - there’s so much on our doorstep!”

I’ve been lucky enough to experience some truly incredible destinations. I once accidentally ended up sleeping solo in a traditional wooden longhouse in the Borneo jungle. In terms of hidden gems, my latest discovery was Cajun Mardi Gras in Louisiana. Everyone knows about New Orleans’ carnival, but have you heard of Lafayette’s?

I recently spent two memorable summer nights glamping in Perthshire, Scotland. I love exploring less touristy parts of the UK – there’s so much on our doorstep!

My Dream Destinations

I’ve got my sights set on seeing more of the USA in the next few years and would love to holiday in Mykonos or Santorini one day. So much to see, so little time!
