My 2018 Travels So Far: 6 Month Review

Here’s a personal post today all about my travels so far this year. I always get stuck in a rut when it comes to travel, often telling myself I am not doing enough when in fact I’ve already had some amazing adventures this year already. It’s time to review where I have been, what I have been doing and what’s up next!

I have separated this post by months, as otherwise it all rolls in to one big mass of trips, events and life moments. Here we go…


My 2018 Travels so Far

Let me kick off with a quick re-cap of my travels so far this year, just so you can catch up with any content you might have missed;



In January…

I ventured north to Darlington to spend a weekend with friends at a lakeside cabin in the woods.

I worked with one of my favourite brands Fat Face again to launch their Winter Collection

I stayed at The Pointer in Brill in one of their adorable rooms, and dined across the road at their award-winning restaurant!


In February…

Theo and I flew over to Sweden for a week of skiing and exploring Smaland. We went skiing for a few days…

And then went on a road trip exploring

And then spend a day in Oxford with some of my blogging besties and Marco Polo Travel Guides!

And then we took a weekend trip to the Isle of Wight as a family, staying at Darwin Escapes. We went kayaking, walking, sunbathing and ate lots of yummy food.


In June I visited Sherwood Forest for a few days with family at Forest Holidays. We went


And again I worked with Fat Face again on launching their summer campaign and celebrating their 30th birthday!

      I usually book long haul six months in advance, and then short breaks last minute, I try and get deals through ryanair or easyjet to make flights super cheap and then find deals on accomodation! xxx
