What to do at Bantham Beach, Devon


Where is it? Bantham is located in the region of South Devon, England. Why should I visit? Bantham is the ideal spot for a beachy, jam packed holiday – with watersports, wild swimming, food trucks, country pubs, coastal walks and islands – it’s got it all.

Why You Should Visit Lepe Beach, Hampshire


So, where is Lepe Beach? I’d never heard of it before and I’m doubtful that you have either.

💖V-day Special: How to Visit Paris on a Budget💖


  I thought I’d hop on the bandwagon and do a Valentine’s inspired post. I feel like year upon year people are becoming progressively less and less bothered about this day of loooovee.

20 Free Things to do in Melbourne


  Melbourne is up there with one of the coolest places I’ve ever been. I found it to be quite small for a city as in, all of the sites and go to places were in walking distance of each other.

The Best Way to Spend a Day in Bath


For those of you who don’t already know, Bath is located in the South West of England, about a 40 minute drive from Bristol (the nearest city).
