Scottish Dark Sky Observatory

We recently took a trip to the Scottish Dark Sky Observatory, in Dalmellington, Ayrshire. Riley’s very into space, so it was one of his birthday gifts from me this year - and a chance for us both to see the night sky in a little more detail. Now, when you live in Scotland, and you...

Beach Yoga in Barcelona

Beach yoga has been on my list (alongside goat yoga) for a long time. Now, I’m no yogi myself, but I’m always keen to try new things, so when I saw Zlata’s Beach Yoga class on Barcelona Beach, I decided to book myself in for a session. Yoga has been something I’ve always thought would... Continue Reading →

Volunteering in the USA

Volunteer work is one of the best ways to further any skill, and is an excellent form of continual professional development. If you have an employable skill already, doing volunteer work opens up doors for things like work/stay opportunities. This is one way Riley and I were able to secure free accommodation on our travels... Continue Reading →

Located in Trongate, The Purrple Cat Cafe opened its doors in 2017, and is now home to nearly 30 felines of all shapes and sizes, including some rather cute kittens. This is Riley and I's second visit to a... Continue Reading →

How to Stay Healthy While Travelling

I think one of my biggest travelling fears has to be getting sick while away. It's happened to me more than once, and I'm sure we can all agree, even getting something as simple as a common cold can make enjoying a trip a little more difficult. For this reason, I take extra precautions, and... Continue Reading →

Granite Island

We went to Granite Island on a day trip from the city of Adelaide, South Australia. It's a beautiful rocky island, next to Victor Harbor, accessible via a causeway to the mainland. You can cross to the island on foot, or if you'd rather, take the antique tram which is rather uniquely, pulled by a... Continue Reading →
