24 Hours In Edinburgh

24 hours in Edinburgh

I’ve been to Edinburgh on a number of occasions before over the years but I never really fell in love with the Scottish capital city.

However, my visit to Edinburgh last weekend left a lasting impression on me and now it sits very high up on my list of favourite cities in the UK. It’s truly stunning; the architecture really blew me away, the food stalls were available in abundance and there’s so much more to see and do there than I ever realised!

If you saw my previous post, you’ll know that my sister and I went to Edinburgh for the night to stay at the iconic and breathtaking hotel – The Scotsman – so here’s what we got up to during our 24 hours in Edinburgh!

Things I Want To Do Next Time I’m In New York

I’m so incredibly lucky to have been to New York three times now, and yet I always leave wanting more. It’s my absolute favourite city in the entire world and I can’t even begin to explain how much it means to me.

Despite my three different adventures in the Big Apple, there’s still so much of the city I haven’t yet seen.

So that’s what today’s post is all about; my bucket list of the things I want to do next time I’m in New York.

Love Actually & Rom-Com London Tour With Brit Movie Tours

My favourite type of movie is without a doubt one that belongs in the Rom-Com genre, so when I was invited down to London to check out Brit Movie Tours’ Rom-Com London tour, I was more than thrilled!

Films such as Love Actually, Notting Hill and Bridget Jones are some of my favourite ever films so when I discovered that Brit Movie Tours offered a tour all about the various locations where some of my fave films were shot, I couldn’t wait to see it for myself!

I took my mum with me as she’s also a huge fan of Rom-Coms, so we stayed in a hotel in Kensington the night before and on Saturday we made our way to the tour. Here’s what we got up to on the Love Actually & Rom-Com London tour.

The UK Walking Holidays You Need To Try*

UK walking holidays

For anyone who knows me, you’ll know that I hate exercise with a ferocious passion, always have and probably always will. It’s something that I wish I could enjoy and do more but it’s just not something that exhilarates me in the slightest.

However, one form of exercise that I genuinely do enjoy is walking, whether it’s just my 20 minute walk to work, or whether I’m spending hours walking around a new city exploring everything that it has to offer, it really is something that I love doing.

Having said that, I don’t think I’ve ever really been on a ‘designated’ walking holiday which is what today’s post is all about. Here’s the UK walking holidays you (and I) need to try.

The European Landmarks I’m Looking Forward To Seeing

European Landmarks

For many years, I never really considered many places in Europe as desirable destinations; I always thought I wanted to visit places like America, Bali and Australia, and while I obviously still do want to visit these places, there’s also a number of places in Europe that’ve made their way to the top of my travel wishlist.

I’ve been lucky enough to visit numerous beautiful countries in Europe but there’s still so much I’m yet to see and do, and one of these things is the magnificent landmarks located throughout Europe.

I’ve compiled a list of the European landmarks I’m most looking forward to seeing; whether that’s next year on our travels or just on holiday at some point in the future.
