Climbing Corstorphine Hill Tower

Nestled away in the woods on Corstorphine Hill in Edinburgh rests a large, imposing tower. This is Corstorphine Hill Tower. For most of the time, it's closed to the public and is just a large building you have to crane your neck to see to the top. It's a little bit mysterious, with only a small plaque above the door offering any further information.

Visiting the Yorkshire Wildlife Park

You will recall, I am sure, of my recent trip earlier in 2021 to the Highland Wildlife Park. It was a lovely place to visit, where we saw baby tigers and big polar bears. I was happy with that. I was content. Until someone said I should go and visit the Yorkshire Wildlife Park too. And dear reader, should you ever give me the opportunity to judge the merits of one thing over another, I shall take it with both hands, both feet and I’ll snap at you with my teeth too. I don't always judge out lo... Read more >

9 Ways You Can Stay Safe While Travelling Solo

Have you ever wanted to go travelling but wondered how to stay safe on a solo trip? Well, it’s a perfectly reasonable question to ask. Especially if you’re a woman.

Visiting the Highland Wildlife Park

In what appears to have become a summer of seeing fancy animals (no objection, Your Honour), we recently took a trip up to the Highland Wildlife Park near Kingussie in Scotland. It may come as no surprise to regular readers of this blog to learn that the main draw for us was tigers. To be precise, baby tigers! We heard that little tiger cubs had been born and were out for the public to see. And so, we scooped up the kids, hitched up the caravan and scooted up north to see if we could catch ... Read more >

How to have a perfect holiday in Edinburgh

Have you ever been on a holiday to Edinburgh? The city regularly ranks high in the list of most beautiful places in the world and is popular with single travellers and families alike. It's safe, multi-cultured and has things to do which will suit everyone. Right now (summer 2021) it is also experiencing one of its quietest spells after coronavirus as most holidaymakers are travelling to the wilderness of the Highlands. That means that now is the perfect time to take in the parks, history and sh... Read more >
