Travel Collab post


I have been working on this collab post over the past few days with the lovely Sophie Amelia over the last few days and it’s been a pleasure to work with her. Below is an introduction piece about Sophie Amelia that she wrote herself. is an honest lifestyle blog writing reviews, recommendations and just general tips to help you lovely people out. I will never write about something that I don’t believe in just because it’s what people want to hear, however I love that people actually take the time to read my content and enjoy it; and hopefully my posts can answer questions.

I’m a 20-something pizza lover, wine drinker from Hull, who loves long walks and drives out. Nothing gets me more excited than planning my next adventure – so when I was given the opportunity to do a collaboration with another blogger around this topic, I was so excited!

Kate has been a great blogger to work with, and I would love to work with her again in the future.

1. How many countries have you visited?
Sophie Amelia: I’m not sure off the top of my head, but from what I can remember approximately 15? This number needs making bigger!

          Kate: Just two! Hungary and Italy!


2. Which was your favourite country?
Sophie Amelia: It’s got to be Thailand, there was just something about it I can’t put my finger on. The food, the culture, the scenery – I spent nearly 2 months there, and I’m itching to go back!

Kate: Definitely Italy! We stayed in Lake Garda and then travelled to places like Verona and Venice. I loved it. There was something so magical about it! The scenery was amazing, so many different streets, mountains and flowers!

3. What 3 places are next on your bucket list to visit?

Sophie Amelia: Santorini, Italy and more parts of the USA.
Kate: London, Paris and Seville


4. What is your go-to travel necessity?

Sophie Amelia: It’s got to be a camera of some sort. Whether it’s my iPhone, Canon, or an underwater camera. Snapping photos on holiday is a must!

Kate: My camera too!! I take a crazy amount of photographs on holidays! Probably a book and notebook too with a pen to keep me occupied on long journeys!


5. Where are you going on your next travels?

Sophie Amelia: I’m heading off for a weekend in Amsterdam in November for my birthday, it’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go!

Kate: I have no idea, I’ve no plans!! I’d love to go to London next and travel around the UK.


6. What is your go to summer holiday outfit?

Sophie Amelia: I need to find a summery, floaty dress for every holiday. Without fail.

Kate: Simple shorts and t- shirt with my favourite runners and a bracelet!
7. What’s the best thing you’ve ever bought in another country?
Sophie Amelia: This is so hard, as I love to bring stuff back with me. It’s got to be between my beloved red furry gilet from NYC, my hand-made customised jewelled ring from India, and my underwater phone pouch I bought in Mexico.

Me: A small mask based on the Commedia Del Arte Style masks which I bought in Italy last year and it is hanging on my wall.


Thank you for reading our collab post, I hope you like it!

Until the weekend!

    1. Yeah, I love Italy too! Oooh fab, I hope you have a brilliant time! Venice has to be my fave place in Italy! Yeah, I’d love to go to Thailand some day!


  2. Wow, I love the way this post worked out. I love that you can clearly see the differences between the two of you in the answers you give, yet it comes together and makes a perfect blog post between the two of you. I’ve done a super bad job at explaining that, but I hope you know what I mean.
    I’m honestly not surprised that your camera is one of your holiday essentials–the photos you post over on your Instagram are insanely good!
