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.

As one of the only places in Europe that enjoys warm weather throughout the European winter months of November to March, the Canary Islands are popular amongst sun-chasing tourists.

Hiking the Quiraing on the Isle of Skye, Scotland

Ok, so I have a confession to make…this was my first proper trip to Scotland!
