The travel blog for people who want to make the most of their annual leave, weekends, money and friends, by exploring the world, and a festival or two. My mission is to inspire my readers to travel differently, independently and to see places they might not have thought of before.
Music festival accessories are a huge business now. Look around at any festival and you’ll see that it kinda looks like an explosion in a glitter / crochet / feather factory (depends on the festival). “Festival fashion” is a whole new season in itself, and obviously, I lurrve it. It’s great that you can just wear your normal clothes, and then pimp them up a bit, with some well chosen OTT […]
Nothing like a road trip to remember how beautiful our world can be, is there? Being out on the open road, with no strict itinerary and the freedom to stop off wherever you like is an incredible feeling. With 44 countries in Europe and probably a million roads to choose from, you’ll never get to do them all, but here are a few ideas for some of the best European […]
I’ve been to the Emerald Isle a few times now. I’ve tried the Guinness in Dublin (more than once), been to a traditional Irish wedding in Galway and explored the delights of Belfast, but what I’d really like to do, is to go on an Ireland road trip to take in the scenery and get away from the cities. The Wild Atlantic Way has been on my radar for a […]
The line ups are out, the excitement is building, but there are some serious decisions to be made – which festival/s to go to in 2018? Glastonbury’s not on, so there are an extra 170,000 potential festival goers wandering around with a Glasto shaped hole in their schedule, and a spare £200, so where oh where to spend it? Well, here are the festivals I’ve signed up to this summer, […]
It was when Elsa from Frozen ran up the stairs of Cinderella’s Castle, singing for us to ‘Let it Go’ that the Disney magic you hear so much about hit me. It hit me hard. She was SO good. Totes emoshe. Emily and I had just come from the futuristic ‘Tomorrowland Park’ – splashing the cash on some Star Wars merch – when we saw Mickey and Minnie prancing around […]
When was the last time you printed a photo? I actually used to work in the Boots photo lab when I was at school, processing film. I can totally remember when digital photography was just going mainstream – and look at us now. Thousands of pics at our fingertips on our phones, but never the time or thought to print them out professionally to decorate our homes. – This post […]
Y’know how I’ve been on loads of holidays? Well, I’ve travelled with a lot of people and I know exactly what kind of person I can travel with, and who I can’t. I’ve been on trips where I literally cannot wait to get home to get away from my travel companion. Maybe they felt the same about me? Negativity, moaning, always being on their phone, boring, not up for anything, […]
I love my office. I’ve worked freelance, from my laptop, for six years now. The first two years were from the sofa in the tiny lounge I shared with my ex, the next three from Wi-Fi Cafes and airports around the world, and the last one, from a desk in my bedroom in Southsea. But, just recently, I’ve hit the big time and have my own FlipFlop HQ in my […]
Siargao is fast becoming one of the most popular destinations in the Philippines. Stories and photos of crystal clear waters and empty beaches are tempting in us travellers. Surfing at Cloud 9, the stunning Siargao resorts and the relatively little amount of things to do in Siargao means it’s a great island for rest and relaxation, without getting too bored. Plus, the fact that Philippine Airlines have started up their […]
I spent my five days on the island looking for the best breakfast in Boracay. Tough job. I’ve taken the hit – to my calorie count and budget for the Philippines – and literally spent hours trying to find Boracay’s best breakfast. I searched around online, as well as checking out the places from the outside while I was there and sizing them up before I went in. This, is […]
