Four Hours in Vienna; How I Spent Just One Day in the Austrian Capital

‘One day? Just the one day?!’ When asking advice on what to see and do in Vienna, many could hardly contain their surprise at the lack of time I was allocating to explore this Austrian City. I admit, four or five hours is not ideal, but I remind people that with a full-time job back in London, […]

Bratislava: Guide To A Weekend in Slovakia

I’d been toying with the idea of a trip over to Bratislava for a few months now, despite knowing very little about the capital of Slovakia. After some half-hearted google searches that didn’t amount to much, I wondered why I was so fixated in wanting to visit. Uninspired, I turned to my trusty girl gang of travel […]

Destination Barcelona: La Boqueria in London.

So Picture this; It’s late evening, the sunshine is still persevering through Spring clouds, you’re clutching a chilled bottle of Estrella Damm in one hand, as your push your way through the clusters of chattering young professionals, catching the aroma erupting from a small stall frying up a giant batch of steaming seafood paella as […]

How To Spend A Long Weekend In Budapest

Booking up for Budapest sort of happened on a bit of whim. It was one of those places I’d seen the Instagram posts of the Parliament Building… and uh yeah, that was about it! But anyway, we’d found a couple of cheap flights so it was good chance to see what Hungary has to offer this […]

Iceland; Land of Fire, Ice… and Hotdogs!

  ‘I want to book to go to Reykjavik, in the first week of February’ I repeated to the on-phone travel agent. He sounded unsure; ‘Oh, erm, okay where’s that?’  ‘Iceland‘ I said. ‘And… erm, what country is that in?’  ‘Erm, That is the country, it’s Iceland!’ ‘Oh, really, um, let me check… hold the […]

Lisbon and the Algarve: Portugal in a long weekend.

We were invited to spend a few days in May in the Algarve again this year with my partner’s parents in their timeshare apartment by the coast. This was all good, and having been the previous year I know the Portuguese coastline is pretty stunning, but there’s only so much lounging about this girl can […]

Prague: Four Days In A Real-life Fairytale City

I was in two minds about Prague before I visited; on one hand I’d heard it was a city straight out a film set with idyllic streets and coloured houses, but on the other I’d been told stories of bachelor parties and intoxicated Brits taking full advantage of the country’s cheap beer (eeek!), so I […]

Canals, Coffee, Carlsberg… a Christmas in Copenhagen

December; I checked the weather app again on my phone; chance of rain clouds and blowing a gale, of course! We’d chosen this weekend to jet to the Danish capital, Copenhagen, so here’s to hoping we’d stumble on some of this infamous ‘Hygge’ everyone gushes about!

Four Days in Berlin: Burgers, Beer, Culture and CurryWurst!

Germany was a place I’d always wanted to go to for a while, it’s one of those countries, much like France, Italy or Spain, that are very much firmly on the beaten track for most tourists in Europe. Whilst I’d been to France a number of times, a couple of trips to Italy and done […]

I went to Rome, and didn’t love it…

I’ll just kick this off by saying, Rome wasn’t my cup of tea. On my travels, I’ve seen a fair chunk of Europe already, fallen deeply in love with a few places, amazed and inspired by most, and pleasantly surprised by others, but I was gutted that Rome left me feeling so ‘meh’. I was really […]

Four Days Discovering Krakow, Poland

I was in high hopes for my birthday break to Krakow in October; I’d visited Gdansk, a small coastal town in the North of Poland earlier that year in the spring and was treated to beautiful buildings, cosy cafes and superb food. Researching Krakow, I understood that the city claims to have the highest concentration of […]

Slovenia: A Week in Ljubljana

Slovenia wasn’t on my radar before this year until I ‘discovered’ it through Lauren Juliff’s travel blog, Never Ending Footsteps, where she cites its capital as one of her favourite European cities. This time last year I’d taken a week long trip to visit Split in Croatia followed by a few days in Italy, and […]

Underrated Poland: How To Spend A Weekend in Gdańsk

I’ll forgive you, I hadn’t heard of this place either. Although, who wants to let small detail of not knowing where something is on a map get in the way of a cheap and cheerful Ryanair flight and the prospect of going someplace new for the weekend, right?! So here we were, 30,000 ft. in […]
