Three Perfect Days in Vienna

Due to the nature of our interrail trip, we only spent three days in Vienna but each one of them was perfect. There are so many things to do and we definitely had the perfect blend of being tourists and living the life of a local by visiting some of the lesser known spots. Like…

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,…

The Victoria and Albert Museum: Dundee

The Victoria and Albert Museum has been open in London since 1852 and now over 150 years later, the V&A has come to Scotland with the opening of a new building in Dundee. The modern architecture is a stark contrast to the traditional building in Kensington but is just another showcase of design, reflecting the…

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…

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…

Nevertheless, She Persisted

Two weeks ago my friend Sarah and I went to an exhibition titled, ‘Nevertheless, She Persisted,’ created by Mhairi Bell-Moodie at the Out of the Blue Drill Hall in Edinburgh. The exhibition featured portraits of 25 different women and told their stories of how they fought and survived traumatic events such as rape, abuse, child loss and illness….

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 becauseĀ 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…
