Venice and London Travel Diary

June 15, 2017

Dress is Primark

Dress is Boohoo

Hey guys,

If you’ve been following me online you’ll know that I just got back from not one but TWO worldwind trips to Venice and London.

Venice was the absolute dream. It’s just out of this world. Every time I visit Italy I fall more in love with the country, but Venice in particular was just so different to anywhere I’ve ever been before. It’s rustic, romantic and just so relaxing. There’s nothing I love more than wandering down narrow streets and finding hidden gems when I’m travelling and that’s exactly what Venice is amazing for.

I went with 8 of my friends from Limerick, which was so nice. The older we get, the busier we all get so it was so nice to have some quality time and lols together.

We visited two of Venice’s gorgeous islands, Murano and Burano. Can you believe Venice is actually made up of a total of 118 islands? Burano is literally the most colourful, beautiful place I’ve ever been to. A bold statement I know, but I just loved it so much. As there was 9 of us on the trip, we were able to afford a private water taxi which is a set rate of €120. The public water buses are €7.50 each way, but take a little bit longer. Continue Reading…

South of France with Princess Cruises

May 29, 2017

Hey there,

Last week I visited Marseille and Toulon in the South of France with Princess Cruises. The Royal Princess Cruise ship was docked in the Toulon port, and we experienced a day trip, just as the Princess passengers would. We visited the quaint town of La Cadière-d’Azur for lunch, enjoyed wine tasting in two vineyards and indulged in a very French meal on the Toulon port.

We visited the Ship on Friday morning, and let me tell you, it was huge!!! With 17 luxurious floors, the ship holds up to 3,500 guests. We visited the pool deck, the spa, the theatre, the gelato shop, the gym and of course we had to eat in the amazing Italian restaurant: Sabatini’s. My last blog post included some shots taken on the boat, you can also see the whole ship in my video, linked below.  Continue Reading…

Snap Happy in Toulon

May 28, 2017

Hey everyone,

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I’m just back from two days in the South of France with Princess Cruises. It was such a fun few days exploring vineyards, tasting all things French and touring the amazing Royal Princess Cruise ship (where I took these photos) I vlogged the trip and can’t wait to show you every inch of this beautiful boat on my YouTube, hopefully I’ll have that video up tomorrow.

As usual when I go away, I got a million and one photos 🙂 One of the questions I get asked most often is what camera I use to take my photos, and what apps I use to edit them. For a long time I only used my Olympus Pen EPL-7 camera when taking photos (and I have used it on this post for some of the photos). But thankfully I have found a phone with a camera just as good as my actual camera, it’s small, easy to carry and has made my life so much easier – the Samsung S8. Continue Reading…

Positano Travel Diary

April 19, 2017

Hey guys,

Last weekend I travelled with Gerard to literally the one place I’ve ever been that I would describe as heaven on earth. It was the prettiest, most relaxing place with the nicest people and yummiest food (Pizza all day errday!)

It was exactly the kind of holiday I love. The village is still so authentically Italian, there is so much to look at and take in. I could have wandered the streets all day and night (if there wasn’t so many steps haha).  

Where we stayed

I’ve had so many questions about the stunning hotel we stayed in, it was Casa Albertina in Positano. I booked on Hotwire.com – I’ve been using Hotwire for years but this has to be my best hotel find to date. LOOK at those views!!! It felt like something out of a movie.

Pink Dress in Positano

April 17, 2017

Hey everyone,

I got back from Positano yesterday, and I’m going to make a bold statement and say it was my favourite place I’ve EVER visited.

The buildings, the weather, the people, the food, the vibe, the flowers… it was just like heaven on earth. I can see why so many people go on their honeymoons there – it’s so romantic!  Continue Reading…

Sunrise in the Dubai Desert

April 3, 2017


Hey guys,

Back to work and reality, but my mind is still living in Dubai. I wanted to share one last blog post with you and some photos of probably one of the coolest places I’ve ever been to – deserted roads in the middle of the Dubai desert at sunrise.

We set off to the middle of the desert at 5am to catch this beautiful moment – an early start is not something I can be found doing very often on holidays, but it was so worth it. These roads were originally built with the intentions of leading to a compound, but they ended up never being used, and they are slowly but surely being washed away by the desert. You can get a better idea of what they look like hereContinue Reading…
