Moments of peace in Aspen, Colorado

So many places pale in comparison with their spruced up, photo-shopped counterparts. As much as I love it, Paris isn’t half as glamorous as it looks in the glossies; London is distinctly grey most of the time – and don’t even get me started on Thailand’s Maya Bay. Then there are the places that blow … Continue reading


48 hours in Copenhagen

I recently treated myself to a Scandinavian city break (my first solo trip in far too long) and I’m so glad I chose to explore Denmark’s capital. As well as being the epitome of Nordic cool, the city was safe, walkable and quiet – quite the respite from London’s frantic streets. Here’s my guide to making … Continue reading

Three UK Review

Review: Three’s travel accessory pack

Straight up: I received these products for review courtesy of Three UK. All opinions are my own, totally honest and not skewed by the fact I got a freebie. UK mobile network Three is all over the place these days. Their recent #holidaybraggie and #holidayspam campaigns have taken over social media and for good reason … Continue reading


[Photo post] Just back from Mauritius

I’m no photography expert; I’ve always fooled myself into believing that I can get away with my trusty iPhone and Instagram filters… But when I found out I was going to Mauritius, there was no question: I needed a decent camera. This was a once in a lifetime trip and it would have been a crime to rely … Continue reading


A Taste of Mauritius

My trip to Mauritius is imminent – this time next week I’ll be watching the sun set on my first night on the island – so when I was invited to sample some Mauritian cuisine in London courtesy of Shanti Maurice hotel, I felt I had a duty to attend in the name of pre-trip … Continue reading


A brief sojourn in Sardinia

I gripped the wheel at the standard 10 o’clock, 2 o’clock position I always assume when in control of a moving vehicle, knuckles only slightly whiter than usual this time. Navigating one’s way out of a European airport isn’t the gentlest introduction to driving abroad; unwieldy roundabouts, incomprehensible road signs, equally snail-paced fellow foreigners jerking … Continue reading

Fox & Squirrel Lindsay Faller

Review: Fox & Squirrel’s Brixton food walk

When it comes to my appetite for travel, and my greed for exploring new sights and cultures, I’m insatiable. Sometimes though, I’m just hungry. Which is why I immediately accepted an invitation from Fox & Squirrel to eat my way through Brixton on their Guardian-approved walking tour. Little did I know, however, that the experience … Continue reading

Paris, December 2013

Review: GowithOh apartment rental in Paris

When I recently tweeted asking for accommodation recommendations for an up-coming trip to Paris, I was impressed to receive the following from a company I had never heard of before: The options I found on gowithoh.com weren’t half bad. Airbnb had unfortunately failed me (I was struggling to find anything suitable and my requests had been … Continue reading

Package holiday in Lanzarote

Travel Confession: I went on a package holiday (and I liked it)

‘Welcome to Lanzarote everybody! Can I get a round of applause for our driver, Manolo?’, our smiley holiday rep, Samantha, encourages us over the coach mic. The holidaymakers around me whoop and clap. Eye twitching, I put my hands together slowly and cringe a half smile. I consider myself an independent traveller, yet there I … Continue reading

Safestay £1 bed bonanza

Newsflash: Safestay’s £1 Bed Bonanza!

Who fancies a £1 stay in the swankiest hostel in London? You? Read on friends. I can’t believe it’s been a whole YEAR since I reviewed Safestay hostel. Over the past twelve months the hostel has gone from strength to strength, topping all sorts of lists (including Visit Britain’s best luxury hostels) and well and truly … Continue reading
