How to Write a Kick Ass Vacation Itinerary

How to Write a Kick Ass Vacation Itinerary

Disclaimer: or any other preferred search engine So today I did some maths, actually that’s a lie, Google did some maths for me. With my 25 day holiday allowance ( including bank holidays and weekend) I’m at work 64% of the year! How f*cking depressing.

How to travel with your best friend

How to travel with your best friend

“She’s my Lobster!” I’m incredibly fortunate to have found my travel companion in my bessie mate Michelle, whom I can be around for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and who let’s me to my thing and itinerise! I believe that the company you keep is a stronger factor in your experience of a place, than the place itself. And as the old saying goes – you don’t know a person until you’ve lived with them.
