Loch Leven Castle

Loch Leven Castle is steeped in tragic history, namely surrounding that of Mary, Queen of Scots. The Scottish monarch spent a year of her life imprisoned there in 1567, before being forced to abdicate and escaping the island on which the castle still stands. The King, Robert the Bruce, is also known to have visited... Continue Reading →

Cats and Cake in Glasgow

Riley and I recently took a trip to Glasgow's first, and so far only, cat cafe. 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 →

America’s Fast Food

Anyone who knows me will understand that I’m a bit of a fast food enthusiast. So unsurprisingly, one of my biggest reasons to be excited about going to America (twice!) last year was to sample their world-renowned collection of ‘on the go’ cuisine. Of course, I had to try the USA’s McDonalds and Taco Bell,... Continue Reading →

Los Angeles is the highest populated city in California, and best known for its bustling entertainment industry. Hollywood, Beverly Hills,... Continue Reading →

Kyabram Fauna Park

If you want a personal, more rewarding, and worthwhile experience with wildlife or animals when you’re travelling, then my big tip for you would be: don’t go to the zoo. Instead, find a smaller wildlife park or sanctuary - the further away from large tourist spots the better. I can guarantee you that not only... Continue Reading →

Picnic at Restricted Rock

If you’ve got $10 to incinerate and you’re around the Macedon Ranges in Victoria, Australia - then visiting Hanging Rock is an ideal place to go. Usually I’m all about sharing my positive experiences at places on this blog and that’s largely because I’ve been fortunate enough to have many good experiences while travelling. However...

Sovereign Hill

Sovereign Hill: an open air museum that feels rather like stepping onto the set of Westworld. It exhibits Australia’s exciting goldrush history, and the effect that gold had on the town of Ballarat, where it’s situated. It first opened in 1970 and has since become an iconic attraction for the state of Victoria, attracting around... Continue Reading →
