Giveaway: The perfect travel orgainiser for him or her

If like me you rarely fully unpack when you travel, you'll know how easy it is for your suitcase to end up in a terrible mess with bits and pieces everywhere - each morning your hunting to find what you need from a pair of panties to your GoPro wrist strap. I recently...

A room with a view at the harbourside Greenbank Hotel in Cornwall

I arrived in Falmouth, a lovely Cornish seaside town, ready for a little luxury. I had spent a couple of nights in a cosy but basic, YHA Snoozebox (a snug bedroom converted from a shipping container). While it was perfect for a budget short break, if you are staying...

Review: Snoozebox at the YHA Eden Project

Sheets of rain pour down as I walk up to a row of shipping containers. In the dim light I search for the number 108. It's not long before I find it and as I peep inside I think yes, this will suit me just fine for the next couple of nights. My private room had...

Where and what to eat in Victoria, British Columbia

Giant waffles, served with bacon, berries and lashings of maple syrup. Just the thought of it now has me nearly dribbling over my laptop (sorry). Sadly I had food envy as my eggs faded in comparison to the delight on a plate that my fellow blogger was devouring. A week of eating like this though would really flummox my fight against the pounds. The food in Canada, however, was so very good throughout that the battle was lost before it had begun.
