LINCOLN CHRISTMAS MARKET

For the first time since being at school, I went to the Christmas market in my hometown of Lincoln last weekend. Once one of the most popular markets in the country, Lincoln market is now smaller than the ones in Manchester or Leeds, but just as good (although I may be biased). The market isContinue reading “LINCOLN CHRISTMAS MARKET”

POLISH FOOD IS AMAZING

My recent trip to Krakow was many things; harrowing, emotional, cultural, bloody cold, and rather unexpectedly, a foodie’s heaven. So, as promised, I’m dedicating a whole separate post to the beauty that is Polish food 😍 I have to admit that I don’t have a huge variety of photographs, because by the time I rememberedContinue reading “POLISH FOOD IS AMAZING”

GIFT IDEAS FOR TRAVELLERS

Unsure what to buy friends and family this Christmas? Are some of them not keen on materialistic things, or are they planning to go on a holiday or travel in the near future? With my upcoming move to China (in 5 weeks, ah!) I have asked family and friends not to buy me too manyContinue reading “GIFT IDEAS FOR TRAVELLERS”

MICRO GAPS

What is a micro gap? A micro gap is a short break away in the country you live in. Micro gaps are becoming increasingly popular as people are realising what there is to explore right on their doorstep, without having to fly or travel long distance. Why try a micro gap? Micro gaps are greatContinue reading “MICRO GAPS”

AUSCHWITZ

This post has been really difficult to write. Auschwitz was not an enjoyable experience, it was harrowing and humbling and surreal. It was the most grounded I felt in a long time and this is why going to Auschwitz is so important. It is easy to get caught up in our own little bubble andContinue reading “AUSCHWITZ”

72 HOURS IN… KRAKOW

Last week I visited my 23rd country, Poland! Krakow was a fascinating fusion of European architecture and culture and is one of my favourite cities to date. I’m so glad I visited in winter (though sadly missed the Christmas markets by a week), and wish I had a few more days to enjoy the sightsContinue reading “72 HOURS IN… KRAKOW”

A Guide to Essaouira, Morocco

Hello and welcome to my final post from my trip to Morocco! This one is all about the seaside town of Essaouira, a 2.5 hour bus journey from Marrakech. A few other tourists and travellers we met around the country were unsure of whether to visit Essaouira as it seems to be a bit ofContinue reading “A Guide to Essaouira, Morocco”

MINI BREAK IN MARRAKECH

Before my big trip to Morocco in September I was asked by a few people “why Morocco?” and “aren’t you scared?”. Admittedly yes, I was a bit nervous. Africa has a certain stigma attached to it, largely due to the fact that not much is known about its people and culture. Not many women travelContinue reading “MINI BREAK IN MARRAKECH”

72 HOURS IN… ROME

Ciao! I’m back with another 72 hours blog post, one I’ve been itching to write for months now. Rome is without a doubt the most beautiful city I have ever visited. As an archaeology student at the time of my visit, I couldn’t wait to see the Forum, Colosseum, Pantheon and countless other Roman ruinsContinue reading “72 HOURS IN… ROME”

I’M MOVING TO CHINA?!

Huge life update: I’m moving to China. If it’s any consolation, I’m as shocked as you are. After a personal crisis and realisation that I need to spend some time on my own self improvement and future goals, I decided to apply for a few jobs abroad. Unfortunately my application to be one of Santa’sContinue reading “I’M MOVING TO CHINA?!”
