Visiting Harry Potter filming locations in Scotland

During our Road Trip around Scotland, it was a very high priority to visit a few places which so happened to feature in the Harry Potter movies. It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the series, I’ve visited the Warner Bros Studio Tour numerous times, visited various other filming locations in England and I even went to the final movie premiere in London! It’s no surprise that Scotland was chosen as a backdrop for many scenes as it’s just stunning. I thought I would share some of the...

New York, Las Vegas & Los Angeles – The dream itinerary

2020 was supposed to be a huge year for travel but obviously my plans have been put on hold. Today, Stefan and I should’ve been visiting Disneyland in California but instead, we’re in lockdown in separate houses. It’s hard to know what to post about in this crisis but I’ve decided to talk about my Multi-Centre trip to the USA as something to look forward to. As you may know, we were supposed to be in the US for three weeks now but we had to cancel. Thankfully, we managed to get about...

Lunch at The Ivy Victoria Quarter, Leeds

Last week, Stefan and I spent a couple of days in Leeds for a spot of shopping and of course, food was involved. The Ivy Victoria Quarter kindly invited us to sample their Lunch menu. I’m a huge fan of The Ivy but can you believe I’ve never been to the one in Leeds? I was very much looking forward to sampling the culinary delights in between hitting the shops! The Ivy, Leeds is located in Victoria Quarter with a little seating area in the arcade for when it gets rather busy. The main......

Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful places in the UK, steeped with so much history. It’s certainly is a favourite destination of mine. I actually visited twice last year but what is there to see and do in Edinburgh? 1.Edinburgh castle One of the greatest tourist attractions, if not the greatest, is Edinburgh castle. The castle is famous in Edinburgh, Scotland, and is known to have been the royal residence of King Malcolm Canmore and Queen Margaret from the 11th Century. The castle has a......

Six must see highlights in Memphis, Tennessee 

The amount of content from my USA trip in 2017 which I have still yet to publish is unbelievable. It’s also only two months until I head back to the states for 3 weeks so I thought I would uncover some of the lost USA posts. If you didn’t know, I went to America & Canada for 9 weeks in 2017 and the first 3 weeks were spent on the Southern Sun BLT tour with Trek America. We went to so many incredible places and one of the stops in the first week was Memphis, Tennesse....

Five things to consider when booking a Walt Disney World holiday

Walt Disney World may be the happiest and most magical place on earth but a holiday to Orlando, Florida does take a lot of planning. There is so much to see, do, visit and eat in Florida and in my opinion, it’s key to be organised to get the most out of your trip. Thankfully, I absolutely love planning holidays and I’m in my element when it comes to Walt Disney World. Pass me all the notebooks and spreadsheets and let’s get sorted. I thought I would share some of my top things to consider...

A festive trip to Edinburgh with Marco Polo Guides

A couple of weekends ago, Stefan and I headed up to Edinburgh on a little road trip. It was the first weekend of the Christmas Markets which I’ve been desperate to visit for the longest time. We both actually visited Edinburgh back in August for my Birthday but I was really unwell and didn’t really see a lot so we thought we would re-book for the Christmas Markets. Alongside seeing all of the beautiful decorations around the Scottish Capital, we did a little bit of sightseeing thanks to our...

Exploring Rhodes, Greece with Marco Polo Guides

It’s about time that I posted about our Summer holiday to Rhodes. We actually got an amazing all-inclusive deal through On The Beach to stay at the Mitsis Village Beach Hotel & Spa in the small resort of Kiotari. I actually visited Rhodes when I was younger but it was Stefan’s first visit. I’ve been obsessed with re-visiting as I could remember Lindos was just a stunning place. Thankfully, it definitely didn’t disappoint. We also hired a car for our week in Rhodes as we really...

An afternoon at the Rudding Park Hotel Spa, Harrogate

Before the start of this year, I had never really been to spa. You could now say that I’ve officially caught the bug. When looking at spa’s in Yorkshire, there is one which I’ve seen so many people rave about and that is Rudding Park. Not only is Rudding Park a gorgeous hotel with two golf courses, an ideal location for a wedding and two restaurants but they have a gorgeous destination Spa....

Dining & staying at Jesmond Dene House, Newcastle

A few weeks ago, I headed up to Newcastle for a couple of days. Newcastle is definitely a place that has grown on me over the last couple of years. It’s not become tradition that we visit over New Years and also I have a few friends living up there so it’s always nice to visit. On this trip, I had kindly been invited to Jesmond Dene House which is around 10 minutes from the city centre in a gorgeous area. After meeting Charlotte, doing a spot of shopping and of course, picking up a...

How to spend 24 hours in Liverpool

Liverpool is a place I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a couple of times over the last couple of years. It’s also somewhere I still really want to explore further. In my opinion, it’s a really underrated place with strong footballing and musical heritage. The city has got great travel connections; we actually have a direct train line through to Scarborough. Liverpool also has the John Lennon Airport which isn’t too far from the city centre and is easily accessible with great ...
