Somewhat last minute, but I am off to Dublin for the very first time weekend, awesome!. In fact by the time you read this I shall either be on the plane, or already touched down in terminal 1 at Dublin international.  From there its a whirlwind Saturday and Sunday of adventure, with the goal of [...]

Mapped Instagram Photos from Copenhagen

By | September 11th, 2014|Denmark, Real Time Blogging|

Copenhagen, my reward for one seriously tough August (work wise), but I made it through the month and into September, yay me!  My reward for silly hours spent working with spreadsheets, contract documents, emails and databases ... a little trip to Denmark. I'm totally overcome by both relief and happiness right now. Copenhagen So to Denmark, [...]

Basilicata In Mapped Instagram Photos

By | June 8th, 2014|Italy, Real Time Blogging|

Oh hello Basilicata, didn't see you there, lurking in the south, on the instep of the boot, away from the likes of Milan, Venice, Rome and Florence.  No litterally, I did not see you there.  Who are you?  Where did you come from? I wont lie, before the start of the year I knew little [...]

Instagrams from Barcelona

By | May 17th, 2014|Real Time Blogging, Spain|

Ah Barcelona, second time lucky. Once upon a time I tried to win a trip to Barcelona with Easyjet ... I failed miserably.  I thought I had a good pitch, but ultimately I failed to get enough votes to warrant my inclusion on said trip, sob.  Fast forward 2 years and thanks to some hard [...]

Mapped Instagrams from Vietnam

By | April 6th, 2014|Real Time Blogging, Vietnam|

Laos and Cambodia last year, Vietnam this.  Like so many others before me, I have well and truly fallen for the charms of South East Asia. When last year I was lucky enough to win a competition through roundtheworldexperts.co.uk for a flight to the value of £1,000, it was almost a no brainier in terms of [...]

Mapped Instagrams from Jordan

By | March 16th, 2014|Jordan, Real Time Blogging|

Although travel blogging can be hard work at times, especially whilst also balancing a 9-5, let it be said that it is not without some serious perks! The perkiest of all those perks in my book is the friends that you'll inevitably make through the travel blogosphere.  They might not all be bloggers themselves, some [...]

Bosnia, and a return to solo backpacking in Instagram photos

By | January 20th, 2014|Bosnia, Real Time Blogging|

Solo travel, and/or solo backpacking, to tell you the truth I've almost forgotten what its like. I'm struggling to think of the last time I travelled for any length of time on my lonesome. Maybe 2010 whilst InterRailing, but that was only for 4 days, after which I met up with a few friends in [...]

Mapped Instagram photos of Paris

By | January 10th, 2014|France, Real Time Blogging|

Ah Paris. Fine dining - duck confit, onion soup, frogs legs and smelly cheese. Exquisite art - La Louve and the Monna Lisa within. Architectural marvels - the Effiel Tower, Notre Dame and the Galeries Lafayette. Love lockets, shopping, fashion, music, museums ... err a hunchback and Disneyland?? OK so you probably knew all this [...]

An A to Z of New York, coming right up. As a part of my travel around NYC with Travelsupermarket this week, I have been tasked with the job of creating an A to Z of the city. This is no easy task I'm sure you'll agree, but via the magic of social media I [...]
