Travelling solo is daunting for anyone and as a woman whose travelled alone, there can be that extra bit of concern before you set off. I’ve learnt it’s all about being prepared and safe; pack a whistle and make sure your accommodation allows you to lock the door or has night porters (most are open 24/7 and bustling even in the evenings).View Post

*Updated 2018. Since I’ve been back from my first solo travelling adventure, I’ve had quite a few people ask me how I did it, or calling me brave. I was nervous before I set off; from the comfort of home I was naturally worried about what might go wrong. Would I get lost? Would I be lonely? Would I even last the full journey without turning back?View Post
This review post of my travels is something I’ve been subconsciously putting off since I came back, as it feels like the end of one of the best times of my life. Now I’m back, the trip almost feels like a dream and I have to remind myself that it happened and that for two months I lived every day to the full, seeing some of the best destinations the world has to offer!View Post
My third trip to the French capital of Paris was full of memories from my previous visits. Here for two nights, it was impossible not to recall being here last April, as well as on a family holiday at thirteen. It made for an unusual solo travel experience as I was carrying a lot of people with me, or so it felt.View Post
After a repeat breakfast of fresh croissants, I got on my penultimate train journey of the trip from Marseilles up north. I would be visiting Lyon for just one night, so aimed to make the most of the initial day before getting my final train to Paris early the next morning.View Post
