Coffee in Edinburgh: Burr & Co

Burr and Co has established itself in my heart and has earned a place in my, “Top Five Places for Coffee in Edinburgh,” obviously a very coveted place to be. Located on George Street in central Edinburgh it’s a great place to stop for lunch or coffee when having a peruse of the shops or…

Three Days in Amsterdam: A Guide

Amsterdam is such a beautiful city and I fell in love with its uniqueness. It was the last stop on our interrail trip so by the time we arrived, I was exhausted from travelling. Due to this and a number of other factors, I was stressed the majority of the time and that perhaps prevented…

The True Cost of Interrailing

Let’s be real, going away on holiday for weeks on end is never going to be overly cheap but how much does it actually cost to go interrailing? It’s something that I had wanted to do for years so last Summer I decided to properly save for it by setting aside my wages from work…

My Bijou Brigitte Haul

Bijou Brigitte is the perfect shop that I discovered whilst interrailing. It’s all about accessories from bags and bracelets to sunglasses and ear studs. I was in Budapest when I first found a store and made some purchases but I bought from them in Vienna and Berlin too. As it’s a shop that’s not readily…

48 Hours in Budapest: A Guide

As we lost a day to travelling, we only got to spend little over 48 hours in Budapest, the first stop on our interrail trip. I was super excited to explore the city so I was gutted when our flight was delayed and we missed out on time there. Budapest is absolutely gorgeous and I’m…

A Lookback on my Second Year at University

I wrote a post like this after I finished my first year at university, reflecting on everything that I had learned from a personal perspective rather than an educational one. I had a wee read of it the other day now that I’m finished my second year and I thought it would be nice for…

Three Days in Berlin: A Guide

Berlin was my favourite city of the six I visited on my interrail trip. It was at the top of my list of places to go when the trip was its planning stages and I sincerely hope it won’t be too long before I visit again. It reminded me of London as it’s more diverse,…

Hello from a European Train

As I write this I’m on a train somewhere in the Czech Republic on my way from Prague to Berlin (and now proof reading this in a Berlin coffee shop). There’s a small town to my left and rolling hills to my right with the sun beaming down on it all. The trains on mainland…

Where to Brunch in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh

Brunch can be such a fun little event. It involves three of my favourite things; food, coffee and friends. There are so many great places in Edinburgh that would be fab for brunch but I thought I would share some Bruntsfield locations as the area is bursting with coffee shops and cafes. There’s nothing like…

Coffee in Edinburgh: Oqo

I am a huge fan of studying in coffee shops. I prefer it to trying to work in my bedroom because there is less to distract me, not to mention the fact that I can’t make decent coffee at home. I’ve made a list of all the coffees shops/cafes in Edinburgh I want to visit…
