After a super early start (6am flight from Gatwick!) we landed in Amsterdam following a short Easyjet flight and jumped into our Uber & were on our way to the hotel – don’t you just LOVE an easy trip? We arrived at Hotel Apollo to a great welcome from the team and instantly fell in love with the hotel decor! Super stylish with plants quite literally everywhere.


3 Days in Dublin checking out top vegan foodie hangouts. After landing at Dublin Airport, we picked up our hire car (our extremely small Hyundai) and headed to our first stop for a much needed breakfast.


What’s worse than a 4am start? The car breaking down ten minutes after you leave for the airport, meaning you have to catch a lift and arrive just in time for your flight, whilst missing out on shopping for last minute extras!

Mercifully, Pret put a smile back on our faces with what has rapidly become our favourite travel breakfast of porridge and a delicious turmeric latte.


After reminiscing about a fabulous trip to Scotland with my late friend Dominic and the fun and fond memories of the Edinburgh Festival, I had one place in my mind that HAD TO appear in my travel adventures.
