Who are we?

It’s simple really we are a couple who just have a genuine interest in travelling, good food, the outdoors and wildlife.

Not just at home in Scotland but across the world too.

We are both professionals and have busy day jobs with Colin a Chartered Civil Engineer and Linda an Administration Manager.


In our spare time we enjoy exploring new places, travel and food and we like to share our experiences, write travel blogs and work with others to promote what’s out there.

Feel free to get in touch with us – we’d love to visit you and promote your business, venue or attraction.

Why do we do this?

Again, it’s simple, at this stage in our life our spare time is really important to us and we enjoy travelling, the outdoors and good food.

When we can, we enjoy being able to experience new cultures, meet new people as well as enjoying the amazing scenery and cuisine the world has to offer.

What are our favourite destinations (so far!)

Costa Rica, Jamaica, Antigua, Mayan Riviera, Malaysia, Dubai and of course Scotland (Our own back yard).

What destinations are we most keen to visit?

Barbados, Galapagos Islands, South America and South Africa

A story of one of our favourite travel photos.

Our favourite pic is a mixture of wildlife and travel. We were staying on the Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland and had set out on a day trip to the Isle of Staffa to see the puffins. We went out on the boat early, but were unlucky and never saw any.

After some ‘encouragement’ we managed to convince the skipper of the boat to leave us (as he was going back for another group) to explore the island on our own! After 3 hours of watching the puffins in the sea below – they finally came ashore and landed right beside us.

We managed to catch this amazing shot of a puffin drying its wings – either that or it was telling us how big the fish was it had caught for lunch.

How did we find out about travel blogging and what is it about it that we love most?

We stumbled upon travel / food blogging back in September 2015 and thought we can do that.  Although, at the time, we didn’t have a clue what we were doing it was great to connect with like minded people.

People are genuinely there to help and encourage you to travel, share your experiences and connect.

What is the best piece of travel advice you can share?

Plan ahead and get in early on flight sales using your loyalty points to upgrade as opposed to purchasing direct.

Bonus travel advice – make sure Scotland is always on your bucket list at least once.
