Why I Celebrated My Birthday At Disney This Year!

Having a birthday in January invariably means that by the time your big day swings around, everyone is too tired, hungover, poor and stuffed with food, that they don’t really want to celebrate. A generalisation I suppose, but usually true. This year, I was fed up with not really celebrating (or people dropping out last minute), that I took matters into my own hands and booked a rather spontaneous birthday trip to Disneyland Paris! Having been to Disney a couple of times before – the Paris version when I was 8 and 13 and the Florida version when I was…

Why you need a digital detox in Mexico

As much as I adore the digital world and the incredible opportunities it brings, admittedly sometimes, it can be a little all consuming. I awake with my phone already in my clasped palm, scrolling through Instagram as I blink open my eyes and checking for Twitter updates as I spoon my breakfast into my mouth, rather mindlessly. And I’d hate to admit, when the likes start rolling in after a particularly witty* tweet (*well, sort of) there is some sort of strange addictive gratification that is somewhat engrained in all of our lives. Social media is amazing though. It has…

A Guide To Iceland

Iceland has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Defined by it’s dramatic landscapes, with glaciers, hot springs, volcanos and lava fields, it’s totally different to the kind of holiday that I normally opt for, however I suppose it’s much more of an experience than a ‘relaxing break’. Regardless, everyone I’ve spoken to has regarded it as a ‘must-see destination’ and so my hypothetical trip has been planned for many years. Recently, an opportunity with TK Maxx arose for me to actually book the trip and go – which was very exciting, as it wasn’t somewhere I…

A Sunseekers Guide to Hvar, Croatia

My favourite time of year to go abroad is when the remnants of summer are finally starting to fade and the hundreds of photos on Facebook slowly start to return to the more mundane of activities, rather than albums full of cocktails and beaches. Chasing the last of the summer sun is something I’ve done for the past couple of years and really enjoyed. Just before the new term starts, we would jet off for a last minute session by the pool – providing a much needed refresh before the work piles in. This year, I started researching my late summer break fairly…

Your Dream Day, in Phuket Thailand

Thailand seems like a LONG time ago now. I mean, I’m not sure how it’s got to September already but still – my actual summer holiday was all the way back in June! How time flies. But anyway, I wanted to save some of my Thailand coverage for a later date and not bombard you with it all at once, because as much as it was an incredible trip – there’s only so much talk of white sandy beaches and chicken satay that one person can handle. So, today, several months on, I thought I’d share a part of my…
