The Edinburgh Grand

Opened in June 2018 in a former bank on St Andrew’s Square, the Edinburgh Grand is one of the Scottish capital’s most luxurious hotels consisting of 50 apartments. It boasts interiors oozing with opulence and views that are unmatched, especially in the penthouse which offers a 360-degree lookout over Edinburgh. Every detail has been carefully…

My Paris Travel Diary

“Paris is not a city, it is a world.” Have truer words ever been spoken? Paris has this manner about it that makes it distinct from other capital cities. It is just as busy, with just as many rude and arrogant citizens and is teaming with tourists but still captures my heart like no other…

My Favourite Eats in Paris

I love to eat, I love Paris and I love to eat in Paris. I keep looking at pictures I took of numerous crêpes I had in June so thought I would write a blog post about some of my favourite things I ate whilst on holiday. I am fully aware that are many more…

My Day at Disneyland Paris

I couldn’t contain my excitement as I stepped off the RER at Gare de Marne-la-Vallée, surrounded by many other Disney fans. I was literally skipping through the barriers after scanning my ticket, probably as I did when I last visited at eight years old. It had been a decade since I was last at Disneyland…

50 Things To Do in Paris

Like Edinburgh and London, Paris is a city that you can never fully explore. Every time you turn a corner you are greeted with a different view of the Eiffel Tower. There is so much to do in Paris that not even the main sights can all be done in a week, especially if you…

Planning a Week in Paris

“Paris is always a good idea.” A quote by Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina that I choose to live by, even though I haven’t actually seen the film. I romanticize Paris, partially because it is the City of Love but mainly because it is my favourite place in the world and my ultimate happy place. The…

Dr Neil’s Garden, Duddingston Village

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Edinburgh has been so warm and sunny recently and I have been transformed into a person filled with happiness and optimism. This wasn’t the case so much last week because I was stuck inside revising and feeling sorry for myself but now that I have finished…

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh

Half of the population in Edinburgh probably visited the Royal Botanic Gardens over the past weekend as Britain experienced an unseasonably warm few days. I am included in that generalisation because I did indeed visit the gardens myself and basked in the lovely sunshine, though for perhaps too long without sun cream. I have visited the…

The Shore, Leith

Finally, the sun has begun to shine on Edinburgh! For those of you who have never visited on a sunny day, please believe me when I say that it is gorgeous. It’s still a bit windy so when you’re in the shade it can be chilly but if we temporarily ignore that, it really is…

My Weekend in Glasgow

Last weekend I spent my time in Glasgow. Even though I was technically there for less than 24 hours I’m going to call it a weekend as it sounds better for a blog post. As my bus pulled into Buchanan Bus Station I was slightly overwhelmed by the size of it. Back home, Aberdeen Bus…
