A Giant’s Causeway Tour from Belfast to Walk the Causeway Coastal Route

Lonely Planet named Belfast and the Causeway Coastal Route in Northern Ireland as the best place to visit in 2018.  They weren’t wrong.  From the moment I arrived in Belfast I have felt welcome, safe, and have been wowed by the hospitality of the people and the gorgeous scenery of the coast.  When you are visiting Belfast, you definitely should visit the Giant’s Causeway, and either spend a couple of days exploring the region or take a Giant’s Causeway Tour…

The Riviera Guesthouse in Whitby – My Yorkshire Foodie Adventure

When I was researching where to stay in Whitby on my Yorkshire Foodie Adventure, I realised that there are a lot of guesthouses and bed & breakfasts in Whitby.  The town on the north-east coast of England is a popular tourist destination, which brings with it a range of different accommodations.  Although I often stay in hostels, B&Bs are by far the most common type of accommodation in Whitby.  Small, family run hotels which offer bed and breakfast are typical…

How to Eat Your Way Around Switzerland Without Blowing your Budget

Switzerland is quite famous for its food; the Swiss cheese, chocolate, and even the wine. But the problem is that it is also notoriously famous for being expensive. A decent meal in a good restaurant can easily set you back 150 bucks – especially if you are a meat lover!  But you have to try some of their signature dishes, especially if you are only in Switzerland for a week or so. So, how do you get all that Swiss…

I’d never heard of Mojácar before Jet2 invited me to go there.  I’d lived in Spain for 5 years, although have travelled very little around the country – well, with so many things to do in Barcelona it was hard to tear myself away!  However, I know how wonderful Spain is to visit, so was thrilled when I looked up Mojácar.  Mojácar has a great mix of beach, sunshine, and more activities than you can shake a stick at, so…
