I've been following this lady, Evie Farrell, and her six year old daughter Emily on Instagram for months now, so I was over the moon when she agreed to a Skype interview.
First time in London? That was me once too! And boy was I overwhelmed! There are so many ‘must-do’s’ that you may feel you need to squeeze in to your precious few days here. But don’t worry, I’ve highlighted the best, and also added in some local knowledge too.
Ever been stuck dragging your suitcase or rucksack around a city whilst you’re waiting for a late flight, or it’s maybe too early to check in to your hotel? The lovely people at Luggage Hero have offered subscribers to my Newsletter, 6 months of free luggage storage worldwide!
El Camino de Santiago is a network of pilgrimages that lead to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, the place where the apostle Saint James the Great was allegedly buried. I was a recently single woman, who had never travelled alone before, so I decided to walk El Camino by myself.
So when the guys at POW got in touch I was intrigued. For me, travel and music go hand in hand. I even take it to the nerdiest level of creating destination themed Spotify playlists for my travels!

Anyone who tuned in to BBC Two’s ‘Race Across the World’ will surely have been hooked from day one. It’s hard not to have a favourite couple throughout this epic adventure, and I loved Natalie and Shameema’s can-do attitude, and how their personalities and support for one another carried them through to the finish post in Singapore. In this episode, we talk about what kind of lessons they learned along the way, being stranded in The Caspian Sea for 5 days, hiring a tandem to reach the checkpoint in Uzbekistan, coping with a lack of sleep, and Natalies challenges and anxieties about unwanted attention in certain countries because of the colour of her skin.
