I don’t realise I’m going to fall until it’s too late. I lose my balance and one leg crumbles from underneath me and suddenly I’m flat on my back staring up at a poorly painted ceiling in north London. I shouldn’t have hung the map next to my bed, but I was determined to have [...]

I recently spent a weekend away from London and travelled up to Newcastle in the north of England to go to Traverse, a conference aimed at travel bloggers where, amongst attending workshops and presentations, I also got to meet up with other bloggers from around the world and do a bit of exploring in Newcastle [...]
I’ve carried a red notebook around with me for over two years. It’s almost full-up now. Full of hastily written travel details, reminders and ideas. If I shake it, I have no doubt that a boarding pass would fall out, or a business card or two. If I turn to the back there’s a map [...]
It’s so easy to share something on Instagram. A quickly snapped photo, a filter chosen, a brief description – just enough to give your followers an idea of where you are or what you’re doing, and maybe a hashtag. Often, though, there’s much more of a story behind those photos so I decided to have [...]
What did I know about Seattle before I travelled there to visit some of my new co-workers based in the city? Honestly, not much. I mean, I knew that two of my favourite shows were set there; Grey’s Anatomy and Fraser, and I knew that it was where the first Starbucks was opened but really, [...]
“Colours are life.” ― Chuma Nwokolo, The Ghost of Sani Abacha There’s a few things I’m a complete sucker for when I’m travelling: buildings, bridges and colour. It wasn’t always this way though. Actually, if I’m being completely honest with you, when I first started travelling I would hardly notice these things. I’d go to a gorgeous [...]
One of the reasons I was so excited to move to London was because I knew it’d give me the chance to go to all the places in Europe I’d been dreaming about since travel became such a huge part of my life four years ago. I’ve always loved city breaks and since I’ve been [...]
The first thing I learned in Dublin was that I rely on the Google maps app way too much. With minimal data on my phone and not wanting to arrive back in London to a huge bill, I was forced to use a real map. As in, one of those maps that folds up in [...]
The girl stands at the door; her knee high boots covering black stockings, a green sweater hanging loose over a pencil skirt. I notice grubby carpets and wallpaper peeling but I let it slide, desperate to find somewhere to live in London. Somewhere to finally unpack. We climb three flights of stairs, every room with [...]
2013 was a crazy year. I went from learning how to be single again to learning to love living in Auckland, somewhere I’d previously hated. And then, just when I was finally settled, I was forced to leave New Zealand and make a new plan; finding a job in London and moving back to England [...]
I pretty much love anything kitsch or out of the ordinary, and if I can combine that with any of my travel plans then #winning. Yes, I did just hashtag at you. I wouldn’t say staying at the Yotel at Gatwick Airport was a particularly kitsch experience (apart from the purple lighting – this is [...]
Hi, I’m Beverley
In 2010 I left my job in advertising to work and travel in Australia for 2 years before doing it all over again in New Zealand.
I love road trips, I'm a huge music fan and, of course, pretty obsessed with travel too.
Now I'm back in England, working at an online marketing company in London and travelling to new places at every opportunity!
Last stop: Gdansk, Poland
Current location: London
Next up: Newcastle, England
