Taste of Brussels: Street Art

Street art is often subjective, and what one person may like, appreciate and see as art, another might just think is graffiti. I’ve seen my fair share of graffiti on my travels, and let’s be honest, it’s hard to stop people graffitting everywhere. What I have come to appreciate however,…

Postcard from…Brussels

We only had a short amount of time in Brussels, and unfortunately the weather was not on our side. Luckily, my boyfriend and I are British, so we’re more than used to a bit of rain, and it didn’t stop us exploring the city. I was very keen to explore…

Postcard from…Brussels

My recent trip through Europe took me to the city of Brussels, Belgium. Unfortunately the weather was awful while we were there, but we did have a brief respite while we were stood in Grote Markt soaking up the stunning architecture. I just had to get a postcard of the…

One month countdown!

So today marks the start of the one month countdown to our break away to Germany and Belgium! We’ve booked all of our transport, so the plan is partially set. We’re going to fly into Berlin, where we’ll spend a few days before making our way down to Cologne on…

Germany is calling!

No, that isn’t the start line to a Eurovision post. Something (I think) more exciting – I’m off to Germany again! I’ve managed to get a bit of time off work, and so my boyfriend and I are off for a few days to Germany. The plan at the moment…
