Becky vs The World

Girl, meets world, meets life



What I did on my holidays

So this years summer travels took me across the sea to beautiful Jamaica. More specifically the luxury Bahia Principe Runaway Bay and it was stunning. 

The rooms were decked out with either a super deluxe king bed or 2 doubles, tv, fully stocked mini fridge, bottle of vodka and rum.  Jacuzzi bath, double sink bathroom, toilet, shower etc. But rooms are rooms anywhere.

We chose the luxury side as it was adults only, so no kids. Personally heaven for me. Unlimited visits to the a la carte restaurants, branded spirit drinks etc.

My favourites were the Jamaican and Japanese. Mainly for the food but the shows they put on are super fun. Oh and who doesn’t love a good buffet breakfast 


 The beach was exquisite, private and peaceful. I tried to get down there each morning before others arrived. Just to have some me time 


Pools were clean with constant entertainment or quieter areas if you wanted to peace, grounds lush and green.


This was 2 weeks of relaxation, reading and rest

Below are a few of my holiday essentials;

Sunscreen and after sun lotions -stay safe

Books, with my personal recommendations

Sunglasses these are Joanie Clothing 

Chub rub stick

Bug repellent 

And the famous big cup, super for filling with cocktails and keep it them cool

Honeymoon in the city

So after my runaway wedding I had a dream honeymoon. Touristing in the ultimate tourist city destination. 

Can you guess where I am?

Further blog post on all the places and hints and tips on getting round 

I also had a birthday this week

So now I’m 35 and married it’s time to be a gown up and start adulting  right?

Weekend with the Scots 

Hey there, apologies for the radio silence but you know……. Life gets in the way

Anywho I’m back, and I’ve been travelling, well I’ve been to our neighbours in the north. 

That’s right I spent a weekend visiting friends in Edinburgh. A city I found to be more beautiful then I imagined. Not sure if it was because it was all Christmassy with the markets and window displays but beautiful it was. 

I did the usual touristy things, museum, dungeons, castle etc. however I also went to somewhere is never heard before  The real Mary Kings Close , for me this is a must do. You go under the city and see what lies beneath and hear the stories of how the city was for hundreds of years before 

And being a tourist of course I bought the photo 

I also visited The Edinburgh Dungeons, in my opinion miles better then it’s London counterpart. The interaction was top level and the story telling was brilliant. Gruesome stories and ghost tales

As any friend of mine know I love a little bit of history so a little visit to Edinburgh Castle was a must, situated high above the city it offers impressive views of the city and out to sea  

And as its December it would be rude not to visit the market, and by this I obviously mean eat all the meat and drink all the mulled cider 

Hopefully speak soon but for now I’m of to find some crepes 

Weekends away

Last weekend me and some gal pals hopped on a little steel bird and flew all of 20 minutes over the irish sea for a weekend in Dublin. 
We arrived just in time for the start of the St Patricks festival,  which meant the city was even more full with tourists from all over the world and of course plenty of leprechauns


Anywho I digress, we decided to do something that I love more then anything when in a foreign city…….
OPEN TOP BUS TOUR, in hindsight it was a little to cold for top deck but hey what the heck, I was on my holidays and Chris our driver was a total legend



We took full opportunity to use the 2 day pass and hop on and off all the way round the city
We stopped at the Guiness Storehouse and went to pint school and enjoyed 2, yes 2 free pints of the black stuff


Next stop on the tour was Kilmainham Gaol the sight of many imprisonments and executions, including those involved I the 1916 uprising. A very sombre place but one filled with history.

Back on the bus we stopped of for a little warm up drink at the Jameson Whiskey Tour, learning how the drink is made and how to taste the difference between different types, so 3 shots and a whiskey ginger and lime later I was a certified whiskey taster


And no trip to Dublin would be complete without a trip down Temple Bar, tip of the day bring plenty of €€€€’s but don’t be put of the place is a blast.
And as it was St Patricks day festival. Weekend we of course dressed for the occasion




So I leave you again and catch you next time I hope
