I went on my first summer holiday and it was worth it

Posted by on Nov 15, 2014 in I Love Europe | 1 comment

I never take my summer holidays in actual summer. Simple and effective rule for anyone in the UK.

Why? It’s bloody expensive!

First of all, everyone wants to go away in summer to a sunny, warm, beach to sip cocktails to feel like it’s proper summer.

Second, kids are out of school which means all teachers and their families are going away in summer.

Bienvenue! Je suis perdu. Je m’appelle Mia. Voulez-vous coucher…no, no wrong phrase.

I am an adventure lover so sometimes I take chances, get my car on the road and make an unplanned trip become an awesome experience.

That’s exactly what I did when I decided to taste the French vibe again through a seven days road trip through the south of France. Here’s how we did it and how you can do it too.

Weird fast food from the UK and around the world

Posted by on Sep 7, 2014 in I Love the World | 0 comments

Whether you’re travelling around the UK or going abroad, I’d always encourage you to try the local cuisine.

But no matter how much of a cultured palette you have, you’ll probably get a hankering for fast food now and again while you’re on your travels.

After all, it’s quick, cheap and even though it’s bad for you, it’s blooming delicious.

A weekend in Manchester: 48 hours of mancunian lifestyle

Posted by on Jul 12, 2014 in I Love Europe | 0 comments


I have been in Manchester for almost three years now and I have to say it grows on you. It’s like home now and I love it.

But it wasn’t always like this. When I first moved here, I hated it. It was the city that had everything I missed and loved in my home city.

As time went by though, I learned how to spend the perfect 48 hours in Mancland so it’s only fair to share my wisdom on things to do during a weekend in Manchester.

3 unexpected things to do in Birmingham

I’ll be honest – I’ve never really thought there’s much to do in Birmingham.

Yes, it’s got one of the UK’s biggest shopping centres, the Bullring, but other than that, there’s not much there right?


A few weeks ago I spent the day in Birmingham with one of my uni friends and our original plan was to go to Cadbury World in Bourneville – just 12 minutes on the train from Birmingham New Street.

Climbing Kilimanjaro – Diary Guide and Tips

I soon realised second day was meant to be shorter, just the four hours trekking, but as it turns out short doesn’t equal easier. Figure that! Now we were definitely climbing a mountain.

As we started we thought we might be lucky enough and not get torrential rain. We had good chances as well as the morning started of misty with no rain. But that didn’t last long. Bugger!

Making Long Layovers More Manageable

I love travelling, probably as much as the next person does, but unlike most other people, I think I enjoy the journey more than the actual destination. More than finally settling down in my hammock by the beach, I enjoy the long trip it takes me to get to where I want to go – I love being on the road, in the air, or out at sea.

Climbing Kilimanjaro – Diary Guide and Tips

Jambo, (which is Hi in Swahili :-))

At 6pm on day two, snuggled by my ski jacket in the tent, I decided this was as good of a time as any to start writing a diary while climbing Kilimanjaro. I made the conscious choice to climb ‘the beast’ at the beginning of last year.

Bored of Big Ben? Alternative places to visit in London

Posted by on Apr 9, 2014 in I love UK | 0 comments


You’ve been on the London Eye, taken an obligatory photo sat on top of the lions at Trafalgar Square and tried to make the guards outside Buckingham Palace crack a smile. You’ve been the perfect tourist and when it comes to the English capital you’ve been there, done that and got the t-shirt several times over.

But no matter how hard you try, you keep coming back.

London is a city that you’ll inevitably want to visit again and again but don’t you find that seeing the same sights and doing the same things gets boring?
