19 April 2021

This week, Scotland eased its restrictions and started edging its way out of lockdown. I err on the side of caution, and my behaviour hasn’t changed much since Friday.

13 March 2021

It is becoming an ever growing realisation that I and (I assume) a great many others are not particularly well travelled within the UK.

Airbnb or Fair B&B?

24 October 2020

Small disclaimer: please only travel if and when it is safe to do so. I’m sorry you missed your standard two weeks in the sun, but a holiday is not a right, whereas the safety of the general population is. For those of you heading out on a staycation soon or who are optimistically planning […]
