    Travel Blogging: 9 of the most important lessons I’ve learned

    I straight up adore travel blogging. It’s made me the person I am today, and I won’t apologise for loving it. Running my corner of the internet, I’ve learned more than I could ever imagine – both about myself and the world around me. So, I thought I’d put together a collection of 9 of the most important travel blogging lessons I’ve learned.

    Blogging is wonderful. The amazing community who share your obsession, curiosity and wanderlust. The experiences you find yourself emotionally richer, and possibly cash poorer for. The wealth of skill learning (photography, story-telling, promotion, networking, design and dedication). The feel-good audience feedback. The amazing advice (travelling tips, expat stories, recipes and musings on life.) Ps. all of these gorgeous photos were taken by the lovely Amy at Toothbrush Travels on a day trip we took into the English countryside.

    9 reasons why you should roadtrip around Corfu

    The flexibility of hiring a car in a new travel destination is utterly freeing, especially on an island that’s as wild and beautiful as Corfu. The azure skies, golden beaches, ancient architecture, jaw-dropping corners and friendly locals are all excellent reasons as to why you should roadtrip around Corfu. Disclaimer: This post was commissioned by EasyTerra who make it super straightforward to compare and hire a car in Greece, not to mention other countries around the world.

    9 reasons to roadtrip around Corfu Adventures of a London Kiwi

    Over the years I’ve have roadtripped around several countries; New Zealand, France, America, Scotland and Belgium to name but a few, but this trip was a little bit different. I was on a girls weekend with the fantabulous Jess and Kara; lovers of architecture, history, baklava, sunshine and singing power ballads.

    The best things to do in Corfu

    3 things inspired our ladies long weekend on the Greek island of Corfu; a keening for off-season sunshine, a childhood full of ancient myths, and, well, Instagram – let’s keep things properly millennial and real here. Whilst we were there, we visited some really interesting corners and coves of the island – inspiring this list of the best things to do in Corfu (a much-requested travel blog post!)

    When you slip around hairpin corners to jaw-dropping cliffside views, you understand just how ancient myths and fables were inspired by this wild beauty and used to explain the world around the generations of ancient settlers. Or, perhaps I’m just being fanciful.

    House of Minalima – Harry Potter in London

    “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” —Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. The wizarding world of JK Rowling has inspired millions, if not billions of imaginations around the world – and it all came from an idea she had on a train journey. The House of Minalima here in London showcases some of the incredible graphics of the franchise, and it’s well worth taking a wander into.

    [Travel Edition] Would You Rather…

    I like to consider myself the queen of small talk. I can chat the hind leg off a donkey (example: I once spent 9 hours brunching with the same two ladies, in the same restaurant on the same day) and don’t often find myself with absolutely nothing to say (*launches into random story only tangentially related to original topic*) but when I saw these travel edition ‘would you rather’ questions, I was actually quite stumped.

    My Nana who used to call me giggling Gertie would have been shocked. Like, surprised enough to let me into her lounge (apparently I used to accidentally smash all of her ornaments, so I got banned to the garden when we visited her. True story.)
