Who’s behind Muckersie’s Movements?

That’s me! David! Welcome to my blog!

I work full time so I’ll be able to help you make the most of your money and that precious holiday entitlement! I’ll give you some guides on weekend trips, 48 hours in… posts and more. I’ll also throw in some longer holiday posts in there too so don’t worry!


I was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and I grew up in a small town in the Scottish Borders. After leaving school in 2007, I joined a large financial company in Edinburgh. After a few years of the fun (it wasn’t fun) commute to work, I moved to Edinburgh where I now live. For some reason though, I decided I wanted to see more than the grey skies of Scotland!

I still work in finance full time so I make the most of my holiday entitlement! I’ll help you to do the same!

When I was younger, we’d travel around Scotland during summer holidays to enjoy what our home country had to offer. Fort William and Oban were the main two places that we’d gravitate to. It actually wasn’t until 2006 that I first stepped on to a plane. The destination was Belfast, Northern Ireland to watch a football match. This was followed shortly afterwards with a trip to Paris, France to watch another match. Over the course of 2007 and 2008, I went to Germany three times, France, Spain, Greece, Portugal, Italy, Latvia and Lithuania! I’d been to 8 countries in the space of 2 years, I was hooked on travelling!

I’ve been to 44 countries now and travelling has taken me to some amazing places like Petra in Jordan, Dubrovnik in Croatia and Reykjavik in Iceland.

With me being a relatively pale guy from Scotland, I do need to be careful though… After my first trip to Dubai you could’ve put me on a plate and I wouldn’t have looked out of place being served in a seafood restaurant! Live and learn!

The ultimate aim is to travel to all of the countries and continents of the world and I’m a little bit off that at the moment! Hopefully this blog will cover that journey and I can provide some decent posts along the way! I’m always planning a trip and each one is met with lots of “are you away again?!” comments from family and friends. My next trip is never far away.

So why start a blog now I don’t hear you ask… Well, I thought that I had some travelling information and stories that I could share so Muckersie’s Movements was born!
