Hey folks! My name is Kate and I’m a twenty-something Manchester based blogger with a penchant for adventure and an aim to live a wholesome, authentic and ethical life.

With that in mind, you’ll mostly see me post about the following topics:

Having travelled regularly for the past 7 years, I am confident in saying that it has changed my life. I have been opened up to new ideas and experiences, have met an array of people and have learnt a lot about myself along the way.

I rely heavily on the internet for support when planning a new trip. I also love to delve into guide books and stories written by other travellers for inspiration and insight. Here, I share my personal experiences in a hope that I can return the favour.



In a culture saturated by the negative, I grew up finding it increasingly difficult to love myself. I lost sight of who I was and the lines between what I wanted and what I needed were forever blurred. Self love is something I strive to work on everyday.



I struggled with food for over a decade, from over-eating to under-eating and everything in between. I dabbled with different diets but nothing seemed to stick. Becoming vegan has been a game changer.

        I think next time will be in Lake District as I am moving soon to live in Cumbria. I will miss Peak District.
