Although I have spent countless hours of my life walking through airports, it’s exceptionally rare that I get chance to experience the airport properly. Heading out on holiday back in February gave me the ideal opportunity to spend some time with what Manchester Airport Terminal One had to offer. World Duty Free kindly arranged for me to experience having a personal concierge service with the lovely Joseph, who made sure that all my needs were met.

Oh Las Vegas, you really have stolen my heart. Having visited Sin City many a time whilst with work, I took the plunge to head over on my own whilst on annual leave. Daunting to be in a place 5000 miles away from home, I did have my reservations but ultimately, it has given me the confidence to visit destinations as a solo traveller. With so much to see and do, I’ve tried to pack as much as I can into this post to give you some ideas as to what you can get up to without spending all your…
