Villa Borghese | When in Rome


Villa Borghese is a public park that is charming for all of the right reasons; and some of the wrong reasons. Probably season-dependent, but the grass was tired and unkept. This only increased its attractiveness, and complimented its brilliant fountains, glorious reflections and quiet park benches. All the while, its views, museums, bicycles and lively […]

Rome from my Favourite Points of View


A bumpy and brilliant skyline against easy blue sky and fluffy white clouds. Picture perfect green dots that protect the river elegantly flowing through the city. The silhouette of concrete magnificence that teases an even better view when you see it up close. Rome’s beauty is just like the books say and it is from […]

Day Two: 40,000 Steps | When in Rome


Saturday opened its eyes without a struggle. A heavy and well-deserved sleep ensured this. Fuelled by our busy itinerary, my brother and I got ready and headed to a local cafe for the hotel’s complimentary breakfast. After an awesome day one in Rome, we were eager to get our feet back on the dusty pavement. […]

Day One: Rome-ing Around | When in Rome


While London rested for a few more hours until the final day of work for a week was complete, my brother and I awoke and beat the newspapers to the racks outside of the shops. Friday 16th: 4am wake up. Time for Rome. I travelled to London the previous evening, silver rucksack packed; purple suitcase […]

How to Plan a City Break


In just over a month I’ll be hopping on a plane with my brother and heading over to somewhere I have ALWAYS wanted to explore: Rome. I’ve been lucky enough to go on two city breaks in the last year- Dublin and Paris. From planning and then going on these trips I’ve learnt a lot […]

Paris From my Favourite Points of view | Dear Paris


The whole of Paris makes for a sensational view- predictable but true. Whether my view was the dreamy Disney castle or the incredible point where we could see so much of our new favourite place (I had to sneak these views in as they should have made the cut), Paris provided a lot of Instagram […]

Get Lost in Paris | Dear Paris


Brooke from The Student Traveler recommended I just get lost in Paris (politely so!), and this thought was constantly on my mind when Aaron and I went to Paris last week. At any opportunity we could, we would lose our bearings and just keep walking. No map and no idea. This sometimes meant we would […]

The Prolonging of my 21st | Dear Paris


Last week my boyfriend Aaron took me to Paris for my 21st birthday, allowing me to continue my self-centred obsession with celebrating my birthday. Thank you for that. The people, the culture and the beauty round every corner made for the most amazing four days. Paris is as breathtaking as you are told it is. […]

21 in Brighton


With hotels dotted along the seafront, holding hands and letting us in to see through their eyes the brilliance that is Brighton, it is easily one of my favourite places. Winding cobbled roads, pubs winking with fairy lights and quirky little shops, Brighton sings heart. Yesterday I celebrated my 21st birthday with my mum, brother […]
