The Ultimate Guide to Manchester by A Local

The “ultimate” guide to Manchester, now, that’s quite a statement. However, having lived in Manchester for almost 8 years, I thought it was about time I jotted down a local’s guide to Manchester. There’s just so much to write about this wonder of a city – from its industrial history to modern foodie revolution. From the shiny skyscrapers of Spinningfields to the red brick buildings of Northern Quarter. It’s hardly a secret that I adore this city; I’ve lived in...

3 Days in Dublin: A Dublin Itinerary Without Beer

In a city famous for strong whiskey, pints of black stout and late pub nights it can be overwhelming to find a Dublin itinerary that involves nothing of the above. Admittedly, this is a selfish itinerary as I’ve never liked beer (or whiskey) and so this is basically a shout out to all my fellow anti-beer people. HELLO. Ramble aside, visits to Guinness (stout) or Jameson (whiskey) often dominate Dublin itineraries and surely I can’t be the only one who’d...

A Crazily Detailed Delsey Quarterback Premium Backpack Review

For Christmas 2018 I had one thing at the top of my wishlist; a sleek and stylish minimalist travel backpack that would be perfect as a carry on backpack for city travel. Simple, right? Apparently not. What followed were countless nights of tearing my hair out, emailing slow customer services and regular visits to airlines websites for carry on luggage dimensions. Dreams were crushed, hope was lost….ok, ok, I’m exaggerating but you get the point. It was a slow process....

The town is an easy journey from Dublin by train or even bus, making it an ideal half day trip from Dublin. If you want to really chill out you could also make Dun Laoghaire a full day trip from Dublin. The main appeal of Dun Laoghaire is the slower pace...

24 Hours: What To Do in Lund, Sweden

Cobblestone streets, a charming old town feel and students everywhere – Lund in southern Sweden perfectly combines old with new.
