    USA: 4 Most Haunted Historical Sites

    We have recently booked a trip to New York (one of our happy places) for the New Year. Having been to the Big Apple on a number of occasions, we have done all of the major tourist attractions, some more than once. Therefore, my research for this trip took me down a very different path. And we have subsequently booked a ghost tour, which we…

    Is Business Travel Insurance Worth It?

    If you travel for work you’ll know that an important business trip has enough pressure surrounding it without external problems factoring in. Flight delays, cancellations, illness – hopefully, it will not happen, but the fact is that it could happen. Business travel is distinct from leisure, family or personal trips, and the factors that must be covered are different as a result.

    What Kind of Trip Should You Take Next?

    Italy: 8 Top Things To Do In Turin

    Every year Mr ESLT whisks me off somewhere different for my birthday. Aren’t I a lucky lady? This year our destination was Turin in Northern Italy. We love Italy, in fact, it is our favourite country in the world and one we never get bored of visiting. Therefore, when Mr ESLT unleashed his surprise, I could not have been happier. We eagerly packed our bags and…

    Europe: Things You Need To Remember When Travelling By Car

    If you love road trips like we do and are planning to take one across Europe, you must remember laws, roads and the need for certain documentation may be different in different countries when travelling by car. They may not be what we’ve become familiar with here in the UK (or wherever you call home). With this in mind, it is vital that you are…

    Europe: Top 5 Fashionable Destinations of 2018

    There are often reasons why we visit certain cities. It could be its landmarks, its history or even the restaurants. But for some, it is the shops. As a designer handbag addict (sorry bank account) some cities stand out more than others when it comes to the deciding where to head to get my next fashion fix. Zalando, an online fashion retailer, conducted their own…

    UK: Taking a Staycation? Avoid the Gridlock

    Did you know that a motorist in the UK will spend on average 31 hours each year in traffic, according to data supplied from traffic information supplier Inrix? As well as being a frustrating experience, being stuck in gridlock will also cost drivers £1,168 due to the amount of fuel and time that is wasted and the heavier the vehicle, the more the cost goes…

And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love to talk about a place that no…

    5 Ways To Make Money For Your Travels

    There are so many articles on the internet about how you can save money for your travels. Most centre around knocking the daily Starbucks double Ristretto Venti Half-Soy Non-fat Decaf Organic Chocolate Brownie Iced Vanilla Double-Shot Gingerbread Frappuccino Extra Hot With Foam Whipped Cream Upside Down Double Blended, One Sweet’N Low and One NutraSweet and Ice (according to Google this is the longest order ever) on…

    Europe: 5 Citybreaks That Won’t Break The Bank

    Living in Europe we are very lucky to have a number of budget airlines to choose from and we quite often pick up flights at great prices. However, sometimes even if the flight is cheap, the destination is not. We found that to be the case on our recent visit to Oslo, where the bus from the airport to the city centre cost us three…

    USA: Making The Most of A Day In San Diego Old Town

    We love San Diego. It was one of our favourite stops on our Californian road trip. We were based in the fabulous and lively Gas Lamp Quarter and thoroughly enjoyed every second we spent there. We also found it to be a great base from which we could visit other parts of San Diego and the surrounding area, including the stunning beach resort of La Jolla and of…

    7 Ways To Reduce Stress When Preparing For A Flight

There are a number of things you need to consider when taking a flight, from the second that you book it right through to when you actually take…

    Protecting Ourselves & Our Property Against Acts of Terror

    Not only am I a travel blogger but I am also an Emergency Planning professional. What’s that? Well, basically I write plans for when bad things happen i.e. floods, pandemics, and severe weather. I also write plans on how to respond to terrorist-related attacks and acts of terror. That of course in no way makes me an ‘expert’ on ways to prevent something from happening. However,…

    July 2018 – Monthly Round Up

    So now the World Cup and Love Island are over and the sun here in England appears to have gone missing, is summer officially over? Let’s hope not as we have no plans to escape this month.
