With winding roads running through the mountains like ribbons as they hug the coastline of the turquoise waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Cabot Trail is known as one of the most beautiful and scenic journeys in the world showcasing an amazing coastal drive through the Cape Breton Highlands. So while on a week long trip around Nova Scotia in Canada we couldn’t resist exploring the trail ourselves!

Paphos // Cyprus // November 2018
Paphos is located on the south-western coast of Cyprus, and is a cultural UNESCO world heritage site since the 1980’s.
After receiving an email from an airline company with a sale on flights we decided to book a short trip to a location we know little about. We went with Paphos as it’s roughly a 4 hour flight from the UK, the flights are cheap, there would be sun while we were in a cold November and we wanted a little break! After booking the flights we started to do our research and realised it’s full of interesting archeological sites and history! Paphos was awarded joint European Capital of Culture in 2017 and after going there ourselves we see why! Here are our top things we enjoyed doing.
The Island of Skye is situated off the West Coast of mainland Scotland. It’s the largest and best known of the Inner Hebrides. It’s also like no other place we’ve ever seen before! With ragged landscapes, natural beauty and magical coastlines Skye has a lot to offer and is the perfect winter getaway!
These are 6 of our favourite places to visit!
Edinburgh // Scotland // November 2018
Brock and I were invited to Scotland by some friends, and to break up our journey we decided to stop off at a few locations, one being the Capital City of Scotland- Edinburgh!
In 1995 Edinburgh was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, in recognition of the city’s unique architectural heritage and it is clear to see why!
