MY TIPS FOR SAVVY TRAVEL

I can’t say I am a travel blogger, writer etc as there are plenty of amazing people who already do that exceptionally well as their full time job. The travelling I do is usually a holiday, city break or, more often than not, for work. Along the journey of my professional life, I have picked up a tip or two on how to nab the best deals for savvy travel. Before you read my guide, one thing to note. When…

POSTCARDS FROM PARIS WITH HUAWEI

Paris is one of the best cities ever. I go there and I never want to leave. And! I never go for long enough. Maybe that’s the key to it. You go for a bit to sate your lust for a place, then you leave wanting more. The ideal relationship formula too perhaps? I had the pleasure of being back in Paris with my Huawei family to attend the launch of yet another amazing phone, the P30. Last year I…

MY TOP EUROPEAN CITY BREAK DESTINATIONS

We all need some sun right? Winter sun trips have become a “thing” haven’t they? My Instagram feed is full of people in Bali, Tulum and the like and I cannot help be but scandalously jealous. But my purse strings are not allowing me do these kinds of hols right now. Plus, last year I felt like I hadn’t experienced enough of the cities on my doorstep. And by that I mean a short haul flight away. I’ve had several…

48 HOURS IN IBIZA WITH HUAWEI

I’m going to apologise on behalf of myself and all the other people on the Ibiza trip with Huawei; we bombarded you with idyllic images of a paradise island in the sun for several days. It was dreamy. I couldn’t stop myself from posting content. My instagram feed had a hue of turquoise all the way through thanks to crystal clear waters that hovered below a fairytale sunset. The power of the Huawei P20 (and P20 Pro that I use)…

MY PARIS GUIDE

Oh Paris was even lovelier than I remember. I’ve been so often but this time was just so lovely. We didn’t go for that long, but two days provides you with plenty of things to do. So here’s my Paris guide from my 48 hour trip! TRAVEL From Dublin you have a choice of Aer Lingus (CDG), Cityjet (CDG) or Ryanair (Beauvais) to get you to Paris in just over an hour. We flew to Beauvais which is 90km from…

MALAGA CITY GUIDE

MALAGA CITY GUIDE

I love a good city break. And when you can work a city into your summer holiday (that must have two weeks away we all deserve each year) it’s a bonus. And that is what leads me to Malaga and writing a Malaga city guide. I’m very lucky in that I have relatives that have an apartment in a small village about 20 minutes from Malaga airport so I get to spend a lot of time there. Malaga is a…

MY GUIDE TO PACKING

MY GUIDE TO PACKING

When you go on holiday do you ever find as soon as you get there you wished you had packed all the things you left at home? Yeah, that’s me. Packing is hard, especially if you are only bringing carry on – so not only are you limited on weight, space isn’t on your side either. So how can we pack everything we want to bring without upsetting the gate staff? I’ve been a well seasoned air traveller, so I…

A Stay At Leman Locke London

London is like a second home to me, and whether it’s for work or play, I love staying in nice places. Look, who doesn’t? Last week I was invited to stay at the beautiful location that is Leman Locke. Now this is no ordinary hotel. Imagine you were away on business Monday to Friday for several months; the whole staying in a hotel thing could get a bit tedious. Having to eat hotel breakfast, eat in restaurants every night of…

Female Food Heroes with Oxfam Ireland Part Two

The Female Food Heroes programme, as you might have read from my earlier blog post, supports female food producers around Tanzania, and gives them a chance to not only learn new skills through the programme, but to build new relationships with the other women in participating. It was completely obvious how strong these relationships had become between them during the short period of filming. Day Two gave them a chance to test these. I was joined in my expedition by…

Female Food Heroes with Oxfam Ireland Part One

I’ve been on an adventure. An emotional, life changing and enlightening adventure. Female Food Heroes is something you are going to read about a lot here, and in the media a lot more from now (I might have something to do with that). You might have seen on my Instagram and Twitter over the last week that I travelled to Tanzania with Oxfam Ireland to see this wonderful project. But before I get into my experience of this, I need…
