On this episode I get to chat to the wonderful Claire Robinson from the UK travel blog blog Weekend Candy. Claire’s mantra is “two days – make them count”, and I couldn’t be more down with that sentiment. Like me, Claire fits her travels around her job and we chat about planning the perfect weekend escape, finding incredible places to stay and building trips around something historic (we are both nerds after all)!

Another passion we share is gin, and Claire gives us the rundown of her current favourites, and how gin is part of her travel experiences, and I finally get to understand what wild camping actually is!

Claire shares with us her top tips for visiting the Cotswolds and her current home city of Cheltenham – if you like chocolate box villages and cutesy places to explore you’ll love this episode.
