Christmas 2017: We Ate, We Drank, We Were Merry

Mr ESLT and I have been together 11 years and during that time he has had the whole of 2 Christmas Days off but that was ok because I didn’t particularly ‘like’ Christmas anyway having lost my mum over a decade ago, my dad not being in the picture and not having any siblings. Christmas for me was never like the sugar-coated advertisements you see on the TV in the run up to the big day. However, this year his holidays fell from 13th December 2017 all the way through to 9th January 2018 (yep he still has the back…

6 Blogging New Year Resolutions For 2018

We’ve have never really had big ambitions for the old blog, we just travel, take photos and write about it. It started 3 and a little bit years ago and we are proud to say it has grown a lot over that time. It was never our intention to earn money from it, work with mahoosive brands on it or be invited on press trips because of it, yet all those things have happened and continue to happen and we are blown away really. We love having our little piece of the web to write about our adventures and the…

Top 10 Travel Experiences of 2017

2017 has been a whirlwind year, it only feels like yesterday we were planning our adventures for the year ahead. Now here we are a year on and all our adventures taken. 2017 hasn’t been the easiest year on a personal basis, however it has been a jolly good one when it comes to travel as we have taken at least one trip every month of the year (apart from July). This post has been a tough one to write as we have visited some awesome places this year and narrowing our experiences down to a list of just 10…

Having A "Night Off" & Planning Our Next Adventure

If you read our Winter Weekend Getaway post, you’ll know that life has been pretty crazy in the ESLT household and with four trips in the next four weeks coming up, there is no sign of it easing up. We are certainly not, in any way, complaining! We love doing what we do and the fact that we are able to travel as far and wide as we do is something we would never take for granted, but add into the mix full-time jobs that do not run to the same schedule, running a house, caring for family members and…

Winter Weekend Getaway – An Annual Travel Tradition

Sometimes life just gets too much, I’m sure we’ve all felt it at one time or another? For me, it always seems to happen at this time of the year; maybe it’s the change in the weather or the clocks going back? Whatever it is, when November/December strikes I feel like I just want to curl up in a ball and not do anything until the weather cheers up, which of course is impossible. Life has been particularly hard this year, I won’t bore you with the details as we all have our own stuff going on, but needless to…

How Organised Are You When It Comes To Travel? Is It Written In The Stars?

Working full-time, travelling as often as I can, writing a blog, running a house and trying to be an adult to the best of my ability, may sound overwhelming, but for me, the busier I am the more I thrive. I think the main reason for this is because I like to be über organised, which if I’m honest comes naturally. I can be quite anal about some things and am a bit of a perfectionist – I just want everything to be right, unfortunately that’s not to say that everything does turn out right, but I do try. I…
