3 Days in Milan for £450? #CheapFlightsChallenge

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know how desperate I’ve been for years to visit Italy. Cheapflights.co.uk made my dreams come true last week and sent me off to Milan with my Mum on their #CheapFlightsChallenge. The challenge was to book a trip for two for three nights including flights and all expenses such as food & attraction entry for under £450. In hindsight, £225 each sounds like a good budget but on this challenge, I soon realised how quickly things added up… Let’s start from the beginning, I booked my flights via Cheapflights.co.uk’s search engine around…

25th Anniversary Celebrations at Disneyland Paris

I know some of you will be thinking Disneyland Paris, AGAIN? Back in May, I made another trip over to France for their 25th Anniversary celebrations. I actually have an annual pass which provides me with free access to the parks and some pretty great discounts on hotels, restaurants and the shops. This was the first time I’d looked into using the discount on the on-site Disney Hotels and we managed to get a great discount on the Hotel Cheyenne. Three days prior to my trip to Disneyland, the foot incident happened. I could barely walk and was on crutches.…

It’s a country I’ve been desperate to explore so I’m super happy about heading over to Milan with my Mum. I actually included Italy in my 2017 Travel Wishlist, I’ve so far ticked off three places!  I’ve actually teamed up with Cheapflights.co.uk on their #CheapFlightsChallenge so I’ll be on a strict budget which is why I thought I’d write a little Bucket List of all the places I’m looking to visit. They will mostly be cheap attractions…

The Macdonald Windsor Hotel & Caleys Scottish Steakhouse

I have wanted to visit Windsor for such a long time and after a few days in Brighton and London, we had the perfect opportunity. My Mum and I boarded a train from Paddington and within 40 minutes we arrived in Windsor. During our trip, we were invited to stay at the Macdonald Windsor Hotel which is conveniently located right across from Windsor Castle. If you want to see all about my trip to Windsor Castle, you can read all about it here. Although Windsor is quite a small town, you literally couldn’t be more central than this hotel. This…
