About Me

Hey, I’m a Glasgow gal in my twenties who loves food, guinea pigs, anything teal and travel, and wish I could do more of it! Since my first trip abroad at the age of 6 months, I have always enjoyed exploring new places, things, food and people. I’m not the ‘quit my job and bought a one way ticket’ type (yet) , but I’m based in Glasgow working in marketing, using whatever time allows me to escape to new places. My destination bucket list is endless, so join me as I attempt to balance my love for travel and a ‘normal’ working lifestyle.

I created this blog to share my weird and wonderful experiences from near and far, and hopefully provide some handy tips along the way!

Planning a trip to a destination I’ve been to or interested in working together? I’d love to hear from you! Say hello at
