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. [...]

Norfolk in East Anglia has some of the most beautiful scenery in England and is the ideal place to get away from it all. With miles of coastline and stunning nature reserves, there are plenty of opportunities for birdwatching, fishing and wildlife-spotting. Whether you choose to cycle, walk, or ride one of the historic railways, [...]
Although I was born and raised just outside of Manchester, I’ve spent the last few years traveling the world and so it’s been impossible to keep up to date with new developments. I find myself coming back to a city that has been transformed over the last few years…some restaurants have closed, new ones have [...]
In a continuation of my A-Z of things to do in Barbados, I present to you Part Two: Letters N-Z! (You can read part one here) N is for National Dish The national dish of Barbados is Cou-Cou! I had a taste of it at Brown Sugar restaurant, located just outside of Bridgetown. Cou Cou [...]
In a previous post I announced my challenge with Travel Supermarket to complete an A to Z of Barbados. I had 5 days to roam around the island, finding something to represent very letter of the alphabet. It was exhausting with lots of early starts to the sound of my alarm clock, but I finally [...]

I’m not gonna lie, Oslo is definitely the most expensive place I’ve visited in the world. I mean, so expensive you might find yourself cursing at your bank statement afterwards. But, like Zurich, the city is brimming with ridiculously good-looking, well-dressed people…hot, blonde, Adonis-like creatures. To the clueless foreigner they may seem a little weird, but [...]
On a visit to Baden-Baden for the Deutscher Medienpreis (German Media Awards), Bill Clinton said; “Baden-Baden is so nice you have to name it twice.” Indeed it is nice. It’s MORE than nice; I don’t think the word does it justice. Located in the Baden Wuttermburg area of Germany at the foothills of the Black Forest, [...]
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.
