The highs and lows of 2018

Family

Over half way through January and I’ve been a bit slack quiet on the blog front already – sorry about that! My years always seem to start off a bit rubbish and I find it hard to get back into the swing of things after Christmas. (Hope you had a good one!) So I thought I’d start off with an easy post – one of those “find out a bit more about me” types.

I guess as a blogger we like to keep a diary of our lives, and this post is a look back on the previous year. The highs and lows of it all. Thanks to Kate for starting this off and nominating me to join in.  Read more

Three reasons to visit a Christmas market

Christmas market

Can you believe that I’ve never been to a Christmas market? Well not properly, anyway. I’ve walked through one but it was a fleeting visit so I didn’t get a chance to have a good look around. It’s one thing I’d like to tick off my bucket list though, so maybe next year! There are so many to choose from in the UK; Lincoln, York, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Manchester are just a few of the ones I’m aware of.

The ultimate bucket list though would be to take a trip to a European Christmas market. I imagine visiting a UK one would be a great day out, but I think it would feel much more authentic to be in a completely different country where they are more traditional. Jet2 seems like a great place to start for researching and booking a European Christmas market city break. Read more

Europe is a diverse continent full of amazing and interesting places to see – each country, although pretty close to each other from a geography standpoint all have their own cultures, traditions and customs that give them their own identity, and is one the things that makes traveling around Europe so interesting.

No matter what kind of landscapes you like, you’ll find a huge variety of them in Europe, from rustic villages in the UK to Alpine terrains in Austria, and sandy beaches in places like Spain and Malta – no two countries are the same, so you’ll definitely not be spoiled for choice when it comes to taking a trip to Europe.

Staying Healthy While Travelling

It can be difficult to stay healthy and on a ‘diet’ at the best of times, but when you are travelling this often presents even more of a challenge. The key here is to make a few changes to your lifestyle as a whole, instead of opting for a specific diet as this will be much easier to stick to – and still allows you the odd treat when you need a pick me up!

Whether you are planning a holiday for 2019 or are going travelling for an extended period of time, one of the biggest issues people face when looking to stay healthy is consistency. Instead of binging on indulgent food and drink – which can leave you feeling tired and sluggish (this is even more fun with jet lag to contend with, too) – try to stick to the following travel health tips.
