Travel

I can’t sit still. I have to have a trip booked to look forward too. I work well with milestones and am fortunate to have friends and family dotted across the world to visit. I’m away on average about every 6 weeks. Here are my planning + booking tips, destination guides and savvy traveller tips.

A Weekend in Dublin

It’s with good intention that I booked a little weekend in Dublin. I wanted to catch up with Kirsty, and obviously hang out with Dylan, so spend the end of summer looking out for Spa hotel deals. Booked myself into the gorgeous Marker Hotel and grabbed some cheapo Ryainair flights. Perfect! Well the idea was until I found out Dylan said it was better to come Thu/Fri/Sat instead of Fri/Sat/Sun,…

Norwegian Long Haul

When Norwegian announced they were doing long haul flights for crazy little money I assumed they’d just be from Norway. So when my Dad told me that for our 21st Birthday trip to Vegas he’d booked Gatwick to New York for me as an added bonus I was intrigued to see what type of service they provided. Well!

1st time in Las Vegas

The wait was pure torture. But let me tell you, Vegas was everything I expected it to be and more. We drove in from LA and all of a sudden you…

Calvin Harris at Omnia, Caesars palace

I’ve become a little house music snob. I’ll admit that Calvin Harris isn’t really my cup of tea anymore. I paid 70 odd Euros to see the man at Cream, Amnesia in 2011 and have never been back to the event since. So yeah. Not really my cup of tea. Going to Vegas I knew I’d have to ease up on my EDM snobbery. The man is getting paid $300,000…

24 Hours in LA

As I’d been in New York with the girls for a few nights we used LA as a meeting point for Mum and Dad to fly into and pick up the hire car before we drove out to Las Vegas. I last came to LA in 2008 so had quite the list of places I wanted to stop by before we drove out the following morning. I don’t really think…
