St Andrews’ Bucket List: 21 Must-Dos

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!

Sorry for the online silence of this weekend – I’ve been celebrating my 25th birthday over the weekend so I’ve been a bit busy! More on that later! For now, here is a belated St Andrews post! Enjoy!

If I have convinced you that you should visit St Andrews by now, then these are the things you should definitely add to your list of things to do while in St Andrews (all according to moi, of course!)! If you’re new to this blog, you should also check out my post on Visiting St Andrews! If you’re not convinced, please head on over to my Expat page to check out my series on St Andrews and be charmed by this magnificent town and all it has to offer.
