Back in 2012 I spent 7 days in #Myanmar, travelling from Mandalay to Bagan, to Inle Lake and Yangon. It was an incredible experience, and if you're short on time, I've put together a suggested itinerary for one week in Myanmar, including places to stay, things to do, and how to get around. 
Myanmar is big, country rich in culture and it’s worth spending as much time here as you can, but if you only have a week to spare, I’ve put together a suggested itinerary for one week in Myanmar. I’m not saying you should follow this itinerary to the letter- ever traveller is different- but this [...]

Finally finished writing my guide to collecting air miles if you're from the UK. It contains a list of airline credit cards available, tips for obtaining a credit card and improving your credit score, plus info about how you can collect Avios with fuel and even your Tesco clubcard. There's lots of info out there about travel hacking for people from the U.S, but not so much for people from the UK. Hopefully this will help if you're a bit confused! #flying   #airmiles  
There are lots of U.S based bloggers out there who write about how you can fly for free with a little bit of travel hacking, but these posts are usually geared towards Americans. I started to grow tired of reading about frequent flyers collecting thousands of bonus sign up points, free flights and free upgrades while [...]

I spent every summer when I was growing up around Salcombe and Dartmouth. Used to come back to Manchester with a tan and everyone would ask me if I'd been abroad! Definitely more hours of sunshine down there.
For a truly wondrous summer holiday this year why not book a stay in Dartmouth. Whether you want to lounge on the beach, stretch your legs on a coastal walk or hit the water on an exhilarating powerboat ride, Dartmouth has something for everyone. A historic port town with a rich and colourful past, a [...]

My top tips for those long-haul plane journeys. 
I personally love the entire experience of flying and always look forward to it, but then again, I’m also only 5ft tall. Economy Class for most people conjures up thoughts of cramped seating, little legroom and even less sleep, so I’ve put together a list of my best tips for long flights to ensure you’ll feel [...]

Went back to Milano recently, it's growing on me! 
I’ve just returned to the UK after spending a few days visiting a friend in Sesto Calende, near Lago Maggiore in northern Italy. The weather was rather cold and wet when I arrived but I was determined to pop my most stylish threads on and shoot a Youtube video of things to do in Milan. [...]

Bloggers, I'm sure you'll feel my pain over data roaming costs and trying to find free Wi-Fi spots when travelling! There have been many occasions when I have eaten in a restaurant JUST because it has Wi-Fi, but it's always better if you can have Internet on-the-go. Mobile Wi-fi devices can be really great for short trips and this week I tried out +Tep Wireless, a company that rents out pocket Wi-Fi. Here's what I thought...
As a travel blogger WiFi is my everything. This might sound like I have a problem and need to go to Internet Addicts Anonymous, but it’s the oxygen of blogging. The first thing a blogger tends to ask upon entering a restaurant or a hotel is “Do you have WiFi?” or “What’s the Wi-fi password?” [...]

Looks interesting especially after spending 2 hours in a moto service station and not getting a connection.  Had a connection but something was blocking internet access, very annoying.
