I’ve just returned to the UK after spending a few days visiting a friend in Sesto Calende, near Lago Maggiore in northern Italy. The weather was rather cold and wet when I arrived but I was determined to pop my most stylish threads on and shoot a Youtube video of things to do in Milan. [...]

Riding around the Gargano in vintage cars, I felt a lot like a girl from one of the James Bond movies…minus Daniel Craig and a bad guy trying to take over the world. As mentioned previously I took part in a blog trip to Manfredonia, Italy, to experience the popular Carnevale di Manfredonia. In addition [...]
“Smile…You’re in Manfredonia” is a line the locals say, and I spent my 3-days in Manfredonia, Italy doing just that. Prior to this trip I had visited Italy many times, but only ever the main cities of Rome, Venice, Florence and Milan. You know- the big four. My first reaction when I was invited on [...]
Along with a number of other bloggers, I was invited to Puglia for the 61st annual Carnevale di Manfredonia, for a weekend of celebrations, Italian food, elaborate costumes and colourful characters. It was my first ever Carnival and now I know why so many people look forward to it! I may not have made it [...]

I have to say I wasn’t keen on Rome the first time I went there. I felt it was dirty and rather unattractive compared to Venice or Florence. But last summer I went back and I have to say it really grew on me! After exploring the Doge’s Palace in Venice and admiring the Ponte [...]
Before I visited Venice I had no idea that the whole city is actually an archipelago of 118 small islands separated by canals and waterways. Obviously Venice itself is the most popular tourist destination to visit on the Venetian lagoon- it was once of the most powerful capitals in Medieval Europe and today it is [...]
Venice is one of the most romantic places I have ever been in the world. It might be considered bit cliché, but there’s a reason it is so popular with tourists, couples and honeymooners. Take a gondola ride along the picturesque canals, pose for a photo on one of the many bridges, sit outside a [...]
Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
