Birthday – ay!

A bit of a life update: on Wednesday I turned 23 and, like all good birthdays, the celebrations need to span over at least a week. I was determined to embrace this birthday as I definitely suffer from “Peter Pan Syndrome” and have a massive fear of getting older. I spent most of my 22nd birthday crying, HA. Honestly, what am I…

Manchester – rific!

I’m back after a two-week posting hiatus…

It was mine and Joel’s three-year anniversary in November so, we decided to book a weekend away to Manchester – I cannot believe I’d never been before!

Leamington – s to Do!

Sometimes the nicest places are only on your door step! An impromptu Sunday trip to Leamington Spa shaped up to be the loveliest afternoon.

Joel and I were feeling a little fragile (putting it mildly) after a friend’s Halloween party the night before. So, on the agenda was fresh air, carbs and sugar…

Tioman Island – ed in Paradise!

Tioman Island was recommended to me by friends and for this trip, unlike the busyness of Thailand, we knew we wanted to have more chill time (I say we, I mean Joel).

It’s difficult to gauge the best place to stay on Tioman Island as there are several different areas. We opted for a quieter part of the island as our accommodation, The Tunamaya Beach and Spa Resort, was better-rated on TripAdvisor and we were still just a boat ride away from Tekek Village – a more built-up and touristy area.

Kuala Lumpur – fect!

Another summer, another trip to Asia. I genuinely don’t think I will ever tire of exploring Asia, it’s a world away from the Western world and I’m obsessed with indulging in its culture. Not to mention, that I’m a student on a budget, and your money goes so much further!

Never London – e with this Place!

As a surprise for my sister, Katie’s, 25th birthday, my mum and I arranged a trip to London to watch a matinee performance of Lion King the musical. My sister is SO hard to buy for but I genuinely think we smashed it with this present!

Holds an Ibiza My Heart

“Ibiza in the summer with the gals” – we couldn’t get any more twenty-something-years-old and cliché if we tried but, what a place!

I could go on and tell you all about the different clubs, however, I’m sure some hardcore “ravers” could give you a much better insight… So, I’ll just ramble on about the best bits, beaut places to eat and things to do!

Brighton Your Day

After a month away, it’s safe to say that funds were going to be pretty low for the rest of the summer. In a moment of madness, Joel and I decided to buy a tent and go camping…

Brighton was rated one of the best places in the UK to visit during the British summer, however, hotels and apartments were pricey. When researching well-reviewed campsites, Brighton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site hit top of the list and we were just a short walk from the Pier and town centre – and at the fraction of the price!

Un- Bali -evable

Bali was the final stop of our Asia trip and the week that we planned to treat ourselves after weeks of hostels! One thing that is so valuable for budget-travelling is how far your money goes in Asia, you can almost live like a king on a pauper’s wage – love it!

After hearing mixed reviews on places to visit in Bali, we landed on the most positively talked about… Ubud, Gili Trawangan and Seminyak.
