Postcards, Venice

Postcards from…Venice

Venice was my first introduction to Italy, a country I have been wanting to visit for years. There was a high expectation of something amazing as I touched down in the city, and the four days I spent there definitely lived up to everything I hoped it would be and more. I picked up three postcards from Venice,… Continue reading Postcards from…Venice

Hotel Review, Iceland

Reykjavik4you Apartments, Reykjavik

Iceland is a country with a serious price tag, there's no getting away from that. But the price tag is completely worth it when you get to experience the beauty of the country as unique as Iceland! Whether you stay in Reykjavik as a base for excursions, or you are road tripping around the island… Continue reading Reykjavik4you Apartments, Reykjavik

Iceland | Exploring Reykjavik

After a fun couple or weeks exploring Europe, we'd finally come to the last day of our epic trip. And what better way to start the day than with an almighty bang at 5am! We both woke with a jolt, and I rushed to the window thinking a car had crashed into our building. With… Continue reading Iceland | Exploring Reykjavik

Iceland | A Tour Of The Golden Circle

An early start by Icelandic standards, we were up and out before dawn - although the fact dawn was after 10.30am made it much easier. Satnav set, roads checked, snacks packed and we were on our way to our first stop of the Golden Circle...Þingvellir National Park! One perk of hiring a car is that… Continue reading Iceland | A Tour Of The Golden Circle

Iceland | Taking A Dip In The Blue Lagoon

One of the most popular things to do in Iceland is take a trip to the Blue Lagoon. Although we'd spent most of yesterday in the car, it was still super tiring, so we couldn't wait for a day of rest and relaxation at the infamous Blue Lagoon. Still struggling with the darkness in the… Continue reading Iceland | Taking A Dip In The Blue Lagoon

Iceland | Exploring The South Coast

The first full day in Iceland started with confusion. Something I had neglected to consider before booking Iceland was the minimal amount of daylight - the sun made an appearance about 11am and disappeared again about 4pm. The early evenings I could deal with as it wasn't that different to winter sunset in the UK,… Continue reading Iceland | Exploring The South Coast

Iceland | I’ve Arrived, Whether I Like It Or Not…

Glad to step off the plane after the weirdest flight I've ever had, I was finally in Iceland. I had been very open since we'd left home two weeks ago that I was not, in any shape or form, bothered about coming to the country. In fact, it was the reason that we'd only booked… Continue reading Iceland | I’ve Arrived, Whether I Like It Or Not…

Hotel Review, Venice

Relais Venezia, Venice

In a city as compact as Venice, there are hotels within a stone's throw of most places. But, trying to find somewhere central, comfortable and at a reasonable price is tricky in a city where most places carry a Venetian price tag. Location Just a few minutes' walk from the world-famous San Marco Square, Relais… Continue reading Relais Venezia, Venice

Frankfurt | More Than Just A Stopover?

The original reason for coming to Frankfurt was purely because it was the cheapest place we could get a flight to Iceland. But, when presented with an opportunity to explore a new German city, how can I possibly refuse? After arriving late in the evening and taking a 20-minute detour to the apartment, the evening… Continue reading Frankfurt | More Than Just A Stopover?

Luxembourg

Luxembourg | An Epic Leg Day

Luxembourg City isn't the biggest place, and we could have really seen everything in a day. But, it's nice to not have to rush around trying to fit everything in, so we left some sights for our second day in the city. With an afternoon train booked, we packed up, checked out and headed straight… Continue reading Luxembourg | An Epic Leg Day
