SO YOU WANT TO TRAVEL? A BRUTALLY HONEST GUIDE TO TRAVELLING FREQUENTLY


Now I've written a couple of posts like this one in the past, how to save money, how to book trips easily etc to ensure that you can travel as much as possible. However, even so, I still have people approaching me dumbfounded as to how I can travel as much as I do. Just a little disclaimer, I do not travel all the time, I sometimes go a couple of months without going abroad, however, I will acknowledge I do travel a little bit more than the average person around me. Plus being a student only earning minimum wage, it does appear to be a pretty impossible situation. However, it is possible, and no before anyone says anything, it is not student loan (I wish!). My student loan does not even cover all of my expenses. Which is why if many of you are considering that option as you have the cash to spare, don't. It's not meant for travelling, nor is it sustainable (one day you won't be receiving that loan!)

MY FAVOURITE CITY IN EUROPE - WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT GDANSK


Ah Gdansk, I remember when I visited for the first time last June. It was my second time in Poland, and after having an amazing time in Warsaw (although it was freezing) I couldn't wait to touch down at Lech Walesa airport. Why? It was a small city full of history, full of amazing food and beautiful sights. It ticked all the boxes. Plus I'm always a fan of cheap destinations to visit being a student on a low wage of course!

WINTER BREAK AT THE NEW YORK HOTEL DISNEYLAND PARIS


So my sister wanted to go away with me in February, you never would have guessed where she picked? Of course...Disneyland. In an ideal world, she would love to return to Disneyland Anaheim but living near London and not being blessed with countless amounts of money, a local trip was what we got! This time we were lucky enough to enjoy a 'full on' Disney experience, for quite a low cost. By booking a trip with a cancellation policy, we knew we would be going, but by checking for deals on a weekly basis leading up to the trip, we got the tickets, accommodation, and full board plan for an extremely low price! I've mentioned this on my tip posts before: It is really important to get the best deal possible, why be lazy and not compare prices when you can and possibly save hundreds! Anyway back to our trip...that we paid very little for...

TWENTY TRAVEL EXPERIENCES BEFORE TWENTY


Hello everyone! So today is my twentieth birthday…a birthday I personally did not want. Why? I wanted to be a teenager forever essentially, but alas we do have to grow old *cries*. However, I am so excited for what’s ahead in my life but also happy for what’s happened. So today’s post is all about twenty things I have seen in the world before 20 (since of course this is a travel blog) Of course I’ve seen more than 20 things as most people have, but I’ve just picked my personal favourites... so lets begin!

TAKING BREAKS AND COUNTING BLESSINGS


Hello again, I write far too many of these posts, apologising for not blogging or being present online. But, to be honest, should I or anyone else for that matter feel guilty? Long story short a lot has happened in my personal life recently and I guess it's just sent me over the edge.

HOW TO CHILL OUT IN KRAKOW, POLAND


After visiting Warsaw, Gdansk and Sopot, I finally made it to Krakow. Which is rather strange as Krakow is the most popular Polish city for tourists and definitely a good way to start. It’s raved about nonstop and whenever I told people I had never been to Krakow, they seemed shocked! So this January I finally got to give this beautiful city a visit.
