More about Weekends and Away

Hi, I’m Kelly!

Weekends and Away is a travel blog for everyone who aspires to travel more, experience new places, do new things, but ultimately must face the reality of fitting in these adventures around their work and everyday life, just like me. I write blogs to arm you with my best advice on getting the most out of your weekend trips, with a few long-haul adventures mixed in for good measure too. With everything from the best 48 hour itineraries for European cities, where to find the best street food and travelling on a budget to how to make the most of packing hand luggage only, my aim is to show you how to have the best time travelling when time is short!

Stay up to date with my travels and photography as they happen on Instagram.
