Why you should buy souvenirs 21

Why You Should Buy Souvenirs (and why you aren’t less of a traveller if you do)

If you follow any major travel websites, blogs, or Pinterest boards, chances are you’ve heard something along the lines of “experiences, not possessions” or maybe you’ve read about people who never buy souvenirs, preferring to travel light or to save their money.

Blogging in London

When Did Travel Blogging Get So Boring?

I was 19 when I started my first blog, way back in 2003.

Cinque Terre on a Budget

If you’ve been following my Facebook or my Instagram accounts, you’d know that I’m not hiding the fact that I fell absolutely, head over heels in love with Cinque Terre, Italy. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know – I can be quite promiscuous with my travel love. But how can you NOT fall in love with […]
