If I had to name my favourite social media network it would have to be Instagram. I love the simplicity of it; sharing beautiful photos and following other people’s lives through the power of photography. It’s fantastic for travel photos and I often get inspired to go somewhere (or eat something!) just by looking at [...]

For my A to Z of Barbados challenge, my Barbados flights from Manchester to Bridgetown were with Thomas Cook Airlines. I’ve flown lots of airlines over the years but this was my first time travelling with them, so I’ve documented the whole experience in this flight review. The Route On the way to Barbados the [...]
I’m kind of obsessed with luggage. As a frequent traveller I tend to covet new suitcases and you’ll often find me looking at luggage stores the way most women would look at shoe stores. I have lots of different cabin bags, backpacks and suitcases in all different sizes- some with wheels, some without- because different [...]
In Barbados I stayed at the Amaryllis Beach Resort, which is located in the Hastings area, just south of Bridgetown. The best thing about this hotel is its location; it’s a 15-20 minute drive from the airport and only a few minutes by car from all the attractions of Bridgetown. There’s also a bus stop right [...]

Earlier this year I wrote about how I am trying to stay in shape while traveling. There’s nothing like shopping for some new running shoes or clothing to give you a bit of an incentive to start exercising! Recently I was asked to review this Nike Women’s Dri-Fit Knit Short Sleeve Tee, which is made [...]
Situated slap-bang in the middle of Oslo, the Hotel Continental is a classy affair and Norway’s only member of the Leading Hotels of the World. The hotel has been built up by a single family over four generations, and this is reflected in the warmth of the customer service. Upon arrival I was greeted with 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.
