Iceland Road Trip: Self-driving the Snæfellsnes peninsula

I’ll try not to make this blog post sound like a love letter to Iceland, but in all honesty, I left my heart here on my first trip out here in 2014 and uh, I’ve been desperately lovesick ever since. Sometimes you see too much of something and you become immune to it. But Iceland? This […]

Where to Stay in Berlin: Lux 11 Aparthotel Berlin-Mitte

After a four day visit to Berlin last year, and as (hopefully!) an older and wiser traveller and second-tripper, I was mindful to choose my accommodation more carefully this time around.

With Oktoberfest firmly marked in the calendar for many beer fans, you probably already know that Germany has a pretty kick-ass reputation for being a major front-runner in all things beer. But what you might not realise is that whilst Munich has been making headlines with all their bonkers Bavarian antics in the south, Germany’s capital Berlin has […]

Belgium: Exploring Brussels with our Brussels Card

I recently visited Brussels as a second-timer; enjoying my short visit two years ago, I returned in July for four days, part family holiday / part joint stag and hen party [Read about my travels here].

Brussels; known for being the city at the heart of the European Union and the best place in Europe for a beer. But what else is there to this Belgian capital and why should you be booking a visit here? This is actually a second trip for me. I’d previously visited Brussels in October as a […]

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, […]

8 Reasons Why I’ll Always Return To Iceland

When you’re gripped with the insatiable urge to see the whole world, it’s incredibly rare to want to be revisiting a place you’ve already been to. Don’t get me wrong, everywhere I’ve been I’ve been utterly enthralled by; just simply being somewhere new and different causes the heart to do somersaults. But some places just […]

Discovering Croatia: A Week in Split.

You haven’t been to Croatia? Who hasn’t been to Croatia? Me apparently. And it seemed like anyone who’s anyone was hopping on a plane headed to the Adriatics. I think it was time to see what I was missing. We plumped for Split over Dubrovnik, partially due to flight costs but more importantly because we […]

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.

How To Spend Four Days In Barcelona

Finally! I feel like this trip has been a long time coming… As a former art student, to see a Gaudi in Barcelona has been a total goal of mine for years and it seems impossible that Barcelona, or Spain even, had been missed off my travels for so long! If you were to dream up […]

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 […]

Berlin: Germany’s Capital of Culture. Discover Berlins Top 10 Sights by Foot

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, ticked off a couple of trips to Italy and done a […]

10 Reasons why Ljubljana needs to be right at the top of your travel list

Slovenia wasn’t a country on my radar until early last year. Although it’s neighbouring nations, Italy and Croatia are firmly on the beaten path; avid holiday-goers have already been able to say they’ve eaten gelato in Rome and bathed in the clear water of the Adriatic sea in Dubrovnik, Ljubljana is not a place that […]
