5 Happy Things – #21 – May || Life Lately

Another month is done and dusted so that means it’s time again for me to write about 5 Happy Things. May was a really busy one. I finally (touch wood on this!) got back to posting regularly on here, I had a trip abroad and lots of interesting things happened blog wise too. So here are a few things from the last month I’ve really enjoyed. A few might even be a preview of posts coming up in the next week or so…

48 Hours In Køge, Denmark (May, 2018) || Travel

As you might have seen over on my Instagram I recently took a long weekend away in Denmark. First stop for the trip was Køge, a town on the coast to the Southwest of Copenhagen. Why Køge you may ask? Well, firstly as it’s the area that my nephew was having his confirmation in. For the second, it’s a really pretty place with a lot going for it. So, after landing in Copenhagen we made our way over to Køge. My brother was kind enough to pick us up, but if you are to make your own way it’s only a 40-minute train from Copenhagen station. With that in mind, here’s what I got up to on the first leg of my trip…

10 Reasons To Visit Iceland & Put It On Your Travel Bucket List || Travel

The other day at work we were having the typical post payday conversation of “If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you’d do?”. We came to the conclusion that after heading to Harrods and making a ridiculous purchase for the fun of it then once the money cleared we’d book a holiday. Although, where things changed off was where we’d pick. Many people picked a month in the sunshine, but I said I’d like to have a week in the sun followed by ticking places off my travel bucket list. First stop for me though? It would have to be Iceland. (Mostly as I’ve seen so many gorgeous photos from friends who’ve visited, secondly as where else can you go snowmobiling on a glacier?!) Anyway, here are 10 reasons Iceland is on my bucket list, and I think it should be on yours too!

“It’s The Little Things In Life” – 15 – May || Life Lately

“One sees great things from the valley; only small things from the peak” – Gilbert K. Chesterton

How on earth are we in June already? Almost halfway through 2018 already and to be honest, it’s a little scary! (Talking about that being scary, I normally do an update post to my Bucket List for the year. I’m only slightly dreading that…) But, enough negativity, this post is all about the happy little moments from the month just past. So let’s get on and you can find my It’s The Little Things from May below. Be warned though, there’s a lot of Denmark mentions. I will be writing posts on that soon too!

10 Reasons Greece Should Be Your Next Summer Break || Travel

I don’t know if it’s just me, but having a sunny bank holiday always leaves me looking at holidays on my lunch break the moment I’m back at work. Normally, I’ll find myself looking on all sorts of offer sites for last minute trips and checking my holiday allowance to see just how many days off I could afford to take off and when. Anyway, one destination that’s certainly peaking my interest is Greece. (Namely villas in Greece with a private pool – the absolute dream!) Anyway, here are ten of the reasons that Greece is on my “to go” list;
