The Definitive Guide to the Best Chips

Although I have no official training, I’ve eaten enough chips and fries in my lifetime that KFC has seemingly taken me slagging their fries off in a four year old tweet seriously.

Tips For First Time Backpackers

It’s been nearly eight years since I first packed up my Jack Wolfskin and set off on my first round the world backpacking trip. Here are my top tips if you’re about to head off for the first time travelling. And tell me where you’re going, I want to hear all about it!

The Trouble With Instagram Tourism

I have loved photography since I can remember. I grew up in a house that holds boxes and albums full of family photographs and holiday snaps. One of the things I enjoy most when I travel is spending time taking photos of the places I visit. I enjoy it as a hobby and I love…

Salzburg

I’m going to level with you, a long held love of The Sound of Music is the sole reason I found myself in Salzburg this summer, having had many a drunken chat with my dad about how “we should totally go and do the tour!” and pretend to be one of the Von Trapp family…
