El Cotillo, Fuerteventura - Why I was wrong about Fuerteventura

Why I Was Wrong About Fuerteventura

The first time I visited the Canary Islands, I was 16 and staying in an all-inclusive hotel with a friend and her family.

The Perfect European Budget Ski Resort

Skiing holidays are notoriously expensive. From accommodation and eating out to hiring your skiing or snowboarding equipment, popular ski resorts are often ridiculously overpriced and absolutely packed.

Experiencing a Mid-Winter Feast at River Cottage, Devon, England

If you’re anything like me, you get a serious case of the winter blues. I spend six months of the year wishing summer would come and the other six months dreading winter.

Lundy Island: England’s Best Kept Secret?

As a lover of travel, I’m forever booking flights to far-flung places and researching the next incredible destinations to visit.

Travel Notes on Milan, Italy

I have just returned from three heavenly carb-filled days in the Italian city of Milan. Although I did spend one day in Italy last year, this was my first ‘official’ trip, so I was beyond excited to finally visit this beautiful country properly.
