A solo trip to Brno, Czech Republic for Traverse 22

Back when I was 18 or 19 I guess I thought I was pretty invincible. I had no fear whatsoever and the thought of going abroad on my own wasn’t a big deal at all. In fact, I moved to Toronto, Canada for a while when I was 20. However, now at 35, it seems much scarier. Last week though I did something really exciting.

Destinations to consider for your 2022 holiday

Our vacations can be so important to us. Whether that is going away as a family, a couple or an individual. Travelling is good for the soul. However, choosing where you next take a vacation can be a tricky decision to make. You may have a big long checklist of criteria, or you might just want something unusual or different. But get the decision wrong and you end up regretting it. So I thought now would be the perfect time to share with you some vacation destinations to consider this year. You never know, it

Things to consider when planning a family holiday to Toronto

AD | Collaborative post In 2006 I visited Toronto for the very first time. I was 20, hated my job and had just broken up with my boyfriend at the time. I had friends in Toronto thanks to an online game I’d been playing for years and so, one day on my lunch break I went to the travel agents and booked some flights. I went back to work and handed them my notice too. Crazy, I know, and I don’t really recommend doing such impulsive things now. I fell in love with Toronto immediately,

My ultimate travel bucket list

I have always liked travelling and going on trips away, no matter where they are but over this last year I’ve found myself thinking about it more and more. I think having a year of cancelled or rearranged trips has made me think about all of the places I’d love to go to some day. Seeing as I’ve spent so much time thinking about, and looking at, holidays I’d love to go on some day I thought I’d write about it and share my ultimate travel bucket list. I realise that we’re very lucky to

10 Things I Miss About Living In Toronto

In my late teens and early 20s I think the best way to describe me would be to say I was a little bit wild. I didn’t really know what I wanted out of life and in 2006 one thing after another eventually made me want to kind of run away. Instead of just staying with a friend for a few days or something I went to a travel agent on my lunch break at work one day and booked flights to Toronto, Canada and handed in my 3 week notice. I stayed there for

Booking A Disneyland Paris Trip With MagicBreaks

When it comes to booking holidays there are so many options. Booking a holiday to Disneyland Paris is no different and if you’ve never done it before, it can be a bit of a headache. When we started to look at booking our holiday it was quite overwhelming and I went back to it so many times before making a decision. In the end, we booked with MagicBreaks so I wanted to share my experience. Choosing Magic Breaks I’ll be completely honest here, our choice to use MagicBreaks was all about money. A lot of

Planning a family trip to Paris

AD | Collaborative post John and I were lucky enough to visit Paris back in 2014. We spent a couple of days there for my birthday and tried to pack as much in as possible. We had the luxury of being able to do things at our own pace and picking what we did and when. Next year we have a holiday to Disneyland Paris booked as we wanted to do something amazing for Erin after her first year at school. We wanted a really exciting adventure during the summer holidays so we decided to
