Through our own mistakes and experiences, I’ve put together my 6 tips for planning a successful road trip, including the importance of having an up to date MOT/service and things to avoid such asRead More

10 Tips for visiting Madrid!

June 26, 2017 Travel

Buy water from the local supermarkets – I found the hotel and cafes to be very over priced, I was charged €6 for a litre bottle that was only €0.70 in the local shop! If you’re going in summer bring lots and lots of sun cream. I saw so many very burnt people as I stood spraying myself with factor 50. The green man means you’re safe to cross, red man or amber means death. The local drivers will stopRead More

I know, the title seems like a pretty rich statement coming from a blogger who spends a vast proportion of their time on the internet. However, even the most internet obsessed among us can benefit from taking some time away from the ‘world wide web’ and here’s why.

Being that insaneRead More
