How To: Travel Europe By Train

My love of travelling by train has been growing steadily over the past few years since I first took the Eurostar to Paris. I’m not a great fan of flying, and initially took the train to Paris in the hopes I’d get to visit somewhere without having to board a…

It’s really happening?!

16 days, 4 countries and a couple of backpacks. I have so many far-fetched and imaginative ideas that many remain just that, ideas. But this time my latest idea has actually come to life, and on Saturday my boyfriend and I will be setting off on our longest trip together…

Plan it…or wing it?

I’m super excited about my upcoming December mini-travels in Europe, and as such spend a great deal of time reading about things to do there, places to see, how to get about etc. As I sat on my lunch break last week looking at ways to get to a tiny…

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…

Eurostar vs. Flying

Choices, choices, choices. We’re very lucky in this day and age that we have so many methods of transport available to us: train, plane, car, coach, walk, bike, etc. So on our recent visit to Paris, we had a choice…do we fly, drive, get the Eurostar or take a coach?…

Choices Choices Choices!

Sometimes it can be a real struggle making some decisions. I’m not really talking little choices like BLT or chicken & stuffing sandwich for lunch – although it can be tricky sometimes! I’m thinking more along the lines of where is next for us to visit, where should we stay…
