I BOOKED THE WRONG HOTEL…AGAIN (+COMMON …

Only photos of delicious street food in Japan can make me feel any better about what I’ve done (again). You usually don’t make the same mistake twice, but call me a over-excited/enthusiastic traveler because my butter fingers have booked me the wrong hotel twice in one year. If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone, and it…

NO BULLS**T TIPS FOR SURVIVING LONG …

Long haul flights are seriously underrated. Underrated for how f**king horrific they are. Tip 1 of a travel website that I read for surviving long-haul flights was, “upgrade”.

FLASHSTICKS / A FUN AND CHEAP AID IN …

DIY Travel: Resources and Advice

How truly brilliant is it that we now live in an age where you can plan and book an entire trip abroad whilst lying in bed!

Thoughts on my Masters Degree

Deciding to do a Masters degree requires a heck of a lot of thought. Unlike your Bachelors, they are not covered by the same Student Loans company (unless you do a combined degree, but we’ll discuss that later), and you’re probably having to look at self funding yourself through a year of education to the cost of around £6000, like…
