New on the blog: Inside Tallinn's abandoned Soviet prison, the city's creepiest attraction. If you're a fan of urban exploration and abandoned buildings, give this a read. 
Had I not got chatting to some fellow tourists in DM Baar, I would never have known about Tallinn’s creepiest and most fascinating attraction, the abandoned Soviet prison. On my first night in the city I dropped by the Depeche Mode-themed bar and when I overheard three girls with Manchester accents, I quickly struck up a …

PayPal challenged me to spend £200 doing some mobile shopping from the Manchester United football ground. Find out what I bought in my latest post! Where's the weirdest place you've done your online shopping?
When I think of PayPal I think of sending and receiving money. As a blogger I regularly use PayPal to send invoices or request payment for my services and sometimes I use it to pay my friends back when I owe them for concert tickets or nights out. I also have a PayPal access card now, which …

With winter retreating from most of North America as the friendlier days of spring make their presence known, it will soon be much more desirable to go on that shopping trip to NYC that you have hemmed and hawed about for several years. Time is of the essence, as while New York City and the …

Want to go to the Grand National this year...I always place a bet but haven't been!
Horse racing is an exciting sport to watch, as anything can happen in the two minutes it takes for fine thoroughbreds to race around the track. However, it is much more intense to take these events in live as opposed to watching it from a pub or in the comfort of your own living room. …
