Here is a collection of my funniest (allegedly) and most popular posts on this travel blog. Or at least they’re the ones you lot seem to love for some reason. I wouldn’t read any of this drivel, personally…
- 60 things to do in the Isle of Man – This was featured on local radio and is one of my most popular of all time.
- 42 first impressions and weird things about America – A mammoth essay of a post that starts off talking about how much water is in American toilets. Doesn’t get any better than that.
- 40 things to do in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal – My most-shared post of all time. Another ridiculously long one.
- How to plan a trip to Japan: everything you need to know for your first visit – I’ve been told this is my most (only?!) useful post. Many real-life human beings have emailed me saying they used it when researching Japan travels and it came in handy.
- How to pack a suitcase in 10 steps without crying or screaming – Not guaranteed to work.
- 10 things to do in Stockport: a town of vegan eats and vintage treats – My most popular UK-based post.
- A fairytale city break in Ljubljana, Slovenia: things to see, do and eat – I’m not a professional photographer, but some of the best shots I’ve taken are in this guide.
- Eight places to visit in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland – A collection for my mini series on South West Scotland. It links off to eight separate posts about different towns/villages/things, with Kirkcudbright and the walk from Rockcliffe to Kippford being by far the most popular. This went viral at the time of publication.
- One day in Kobe, Japan: things to do in the floral city – My most-read post ever. I get hundreds of views a day on it. I’m including it quietly at the end of this list because it’s obviously something people enjoy, but I’m the first to admit it isn’t the most entertaining/unusual post. Practical though!
