Travelling Around Canada Using megabus

February 12, 2018

A few years ago I managed to live out one of my dreams to travel around Canada. The cities I visited were Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec and Toronto and I travelled using megabus. Canada is a huge country with a lot of land between their large and vibrant cities and I do not drive so I only had three options to get around; plane, train or bus. I chose bus…


Staying in Hostels While Backpacking Round the World

February 2, 2018

While I was bumming around Europe on Interrail I stayed in loads of different hostels – or Youth Hostels as they were known then. There are over 35,000 hostels around the world. It is basically a hotel with budget prices where you can rent a bed in dormitory with a shared bathroom or your own room with ensuite bathroom. The shared rooms can be mixed or single-sex. Some of the…


My Adventures With Interrail

I have flown with them many times since and always had a good experience.…


The Hoxton, Holborn

January 3, 2018

As I am based in Kent I only go down to London once or twice a week and when I do I cram everything in. From press days, to meetings with brands and PRs to catch ups with friends. When you have a full day there can be some dead time when you have hours to kill or just need to flop with a cup of tea for…


The London EDITION

December 31, 2017

Last summer I had the pleasure of staying overnight at The London EDITION thanks to those lovely people at Capsule Communications. The boutique hotel is just off Oxford Street and offers a really luxury hotel experience. The service is topnotch, from the time you arrive to when you check out. Nothing is a hassle for the staff and you are treated like first class. The only downside is the…
