But I never forget how it felt starting out when I had all the normal concerns that most first time solo travellers do. In this guide, I aim to reassure you and provide tips and insights from my 10 years of solo travel to help guide you along the way! Tips for travelling alone for t ..read more

Are you planning a trip to Italy and wondering if Milan is worth visiting? Well, you’ve come to the right place! In this post, I’ll walk you through the pros and cons of choosing Milan as your next destination so you can decide if it’s the best choice for your next holiday. Unlike other widely loved cities in Northern Italy, Milan seems to be more divisive.

Solo Travel In Mexico City + Female Safety Tips
Where Goes Rose?

Since I live here, I decided a guide to solo travel in Mexico City was well overdue. Even though I know it’s a fantastic and safe destination for women travelling alone, it seems not everyone knows this. I know this because of how many people ask me ‘How’s the safety there?’ or ‘Wait, is that safe?’ as their first response based on me telling them I live here. Honestly, it’s astounding how many people ask me this… Including men who aren’t even travelling alone! So given that they’re concerned, I can understand why women travelling alone to Mexico City need reassurance. Read next: guide to s ..read more

Wow, I cannot believe this is the ninth year in review post! I’ve been doing this blogging lark a while now (although it wasn’t until six years in that it was a job rather than a hobby). I rounded up 2022 by saying that I’d had a crazy year of travels (letting off steam from not being able to travel in 2020 and 2021, for obvious reasons) and needed some downtime. This year has definitely been more chilled with more structure, although it’s had its crazy moments too, of course. Living in Mexico City My hoodTACOS! For the whole of 2023, I have lived in the same place: a lovely apartment in the ..read more
