New York at New Year

A while back, I was lucky enough to visit New York over New Year 2013/14 with my family. We stayed in the Roosevelt Hotel in midtown Manhattan which I’d highly recommend, it has a stunningly ornate lobby and has a real ‘wow’ impact on arrival. It was especially magical around Christmas time, it was beautifully decorated and…

How to spend a weekend in Edinburgh

Recently one of my oldest friends moved up to Edinburgh so, although it’s obviously very sad that she won’t be 5 minutes away from me anymore, it does give me a great opportunity to visit a wonderful city more often! I went a few years ago during the Fringe Festival and although it was a great trip,…

24 Hours in… Cambridge

On Friday morning I ventured back to my old university city to reunite with my old pals. We wanted a night out at our old regular Friday night spot, Propaganda at Fez where many drinks were drunk and fun was had.

Some of my university friends came down from London, Leighton Buzzard and Lincoln and having spent the entire three years bleating on relentlessly about how amazing Bristol is, I felt a pressure for…

A week in Split, Croatia

We chose Split because it seemed to be the perfect mixture of a city/beach break that we were looking for – we wanted the flexibility of being able to relax on the…

A long weekend in Dublin

Dublin has to be in my top three favourite city breaks. This city has everything I look for when booking a weekend getaway: enough history, culture and points of interest to fill up the daytime whilst there is a varied and lively nightlife to experience the city after dark. It certainly didn’t disappoint! Firstly, let’s…
