10 Happy Things For The Weekend.

It's the weekend dear readers and hopefully the sun is shining where you are, it's been such a great week so I thought I would do a 10 happy things for the weekend post so here goes - 


  1. I picked up a really fun travel assignment this week, I need to fit in in my schedule in the next few weeks but i'm really looking forward to it.
  2. My crowd funding funds will soon be with me, it's travel time!
  3. My bargain hunting and a donated train ticket are getting me from Newcastle - Edinburgh - Inverness - Aberdeen - Newcastle for £40.85
  4. Claire from the Inspire Network alerted me to the fact that I should check out Megabus for cheap travel, it's a fiver to go to Birmingham, compared to £110 on the train and there's just no contest really, even if I am a little afraid of what kind of bus would take you all of that way for a fiver, I shall no doubt report back. Now if only I could find a similar bargain price for a hotel, £50 a night seems to be about the cheapest unless I want to get murdered in my bed or sleep in a brothel.
  5. I finally committed to an iPad mini for travelling, this means I don't have to worry about the weight of my rucksack and I can leave my books and my Macbook Pro at home.
  6. I'm planning to travel every week now which means I'll avoid the World cup, hurray!
  7. Petunia continues to be the best husky on the entire planet, we love her so much, if only the cats would love her like we do!
  8. Look out for me in the Sunday Sun tomorrow, they're doing a follow up piece on #ukcityscapes, they've asked me to keep in touch so they'll be getting all of the exclusives.
  9. I'm going to write an E-book about crowd funding, it'll be a helpful guide full of tips and tricks, the ones I used to raise 144% of my target.
  10. I get the whole day off tomorrow,  family days are my favourite days of all.
Whatever you do this weekend, lets go out there and make it the best weekend ever!
