Why You Should Visit the Van Gogh Immersive Experience in York

York
Art isn't usually my thing, I often find it a little boring and sometimes I just don't get it. There are exceptions to this rule, for example when I visited the National Gallery in London I was absolutely mesmerised, especially by the HUGE works of art dating back many centuries. Thinking about the time it must have taken and the dedication given to creating those paintings kind of takes my breath away. So when I was invited to attend the Van Gogh Immersive Experience in York recently, I was intrigued... what would it be like to step inside such an important part of art history?

How to Book a Last Minute, Super Cheap, Multi-City Break Using Minimal Annual Leave

How to Book a Last Minute, Super Cheap, Multi-City Break Using Minimal …

Leeds
Wow that's a big title! But that's exactly what this post is about. When I talk to my friends about my upcoming travel plans, they tend to comment on the fact that a) I seem to go on a fair few weekend breaks despite my lack of money and annual leave; b) my destinations seem random because I've never expressed an interest in that place before and; c) it must be more expensive booking a trip so last minute! The first two points are sort of true, but the third definitely isn't. So I thought I'd share with you how I go about booking a last minute, super cheap city break using minimal annual leave.
Discovering Michelin Star Chefs At Pub in The Park

Discovering Michelin Star Chefs At Pub in The Park

Leeds
I love a food festival, and I love street food. Equally, I love a fancy pants Michelin Star restaurant. So when I saw that Tom Kerridge was holding his Pub in the Park event in Roundhay Park, Leeds, I'm sure you can imagine my excitement! The event brings together award-winning food, Michelin-starred chefs and live-music for a day of, in my opinion, heaven. It's the perfect opportunity to discover world-class, British restaurants without having to book a table months in advance and save up your hard-earned cash for one evening of luxury.
A Guide to Planning, Booking and Walking the West Highland Way

A Guide to Planning, Booking and Walking the West Highland Way

The West Highland Way is a long distance walk that runs through the Scottish Highlands, from Milngavie (just north of Glasgow) to Fort William and takes just over a week. The route is 151km/ 96 miles long and offers a variety of landscapes including lakes, mountains and moors. Although long, it's not a hugely difficult walk and there are no technical sections so its achievable for most walkers. It's well marked out as well so perfect for when I distract my Dad from his navigation with my incessant chatter.

It's a known fact that Yorkshire is the best county, right?

There are plenty of things to do in Helmsley and the surrounding areas, here are just a few of them.

Last month I spent a week in Gran Canaria with my boyfriend and his family. The aim of the game was simply to relax: days around the pool, walks along the beach and a lot of barbecues! I soon realised that Gran Canaria had much more too it than I first thought, and was full of surprises. In honour of that, here are five things that surprised me the most.
What to Pack for Glacier Hiking in the Alps

What to Pack for Glacier Hiking in the Alps

I started writing this post prior to my recent glacier hiking trip to the Alps whilst I was packing, and I'm so glad that I didn't finish it as I got my packing COMPLETELY WRONG. I packed far too much, missed off a couple of essential items and made my bag too heavy for lugging up mountains. If you're off on a glacier hiking trip, here's what you need to pack.

10 Things I Learnt on The Spaghetti Tour

Zermatt
I've just returned from the Alps on a version of what is known as the Spaghetti Tour. It’s named as such because although it starts and ends in Switzerland, most nights are spent in Italy eating generous portions of, you guessed it, spaghetti (actually just general pasta, we didn’t have any spaghetti). So I’m sharing 10 things I learnt on the Spaghetti Tour, from how to safely walk on glaciers to several toilet related learnings.
Mountain Huts: What To Expect and How to Survive

Mountain Huts: What To Expect and How to Survive

Zermatt
Mountain huts are a completely unique experience. Usually they are simply a necessity - if you want to hike, climb or ski in remote areas there might not be any other kind of accommodation available, but you don't want to miss out on these incredible locations. They're not to everyone's taste, but they do have their benefits - you just need to know what to expect and have a few tricks up your sleeve to make them more enjoyable!
