Photo Friday: Hot Air Balloon

Last summer my boyfriend and I made our way to Newquay for Boardmasters Festival. Newquay is a town in the South West of England known to be a surfing hotspot, and Boardmasters Festival is a music festival teamed up with…

Hire a bike in Amsterdam!

Riding a bike in Amsterdam is the same as eating tapas in Spain, or sampling snails in France. Until you’ve been to Amsterdam, it’s hard to imagine just how many bikes there are. So when we were in Amsterdam, we…

Guest Post – The Avenue Hotel, Amsterdam

Home from a recent trip to Amsterdam, Emily from thatemily.wordpress.com reviews her hotel stay. To see what else she got up to while there, check out her Amsterdam post. When looking for a hotel in Amsterdam we consulted travel guides,…

Camp Nou, Barcelona

‘A tour of Barcelona’s football stadium, it’ll be fun’. Those are the words I heard from my boyfriend during our trip to Barcelona, and those are the words I never thought would be true. I’ll lay it out for you…

La Boqueria

With roots dating back to around 1200, La Boqueria started life off as a humble, open-air market in front of the city walls. As time has passed, the market has grown in size and notoriety, and has firmly secured it’s…

Park Plaza Wallstreet, Berlin

I’ll let it be said right now that I love Berlin. I love the culture, the food, the language, the history…everything! So when we finally got to visit Berlin last year I was ecstatic and looked forward to it so…

Musée Rodin

Musée Rodin opened in 1919 to showcase the works of French sculptor Auguste Rodin. The museum is partly housed in a hotel he used as a workshop, and in the surrounding grounds. A little more interactive than your standard museum,…

WestCord City Centre Hotel Amsterdam

My boyfriend and I stayed at the WestCord City Centre Hotel during our recent visit to Amsterdam. We weren’t familiar with the area, but from what I’d read and been told, any accommodation within the inner canal belt was a…

Learning the lingo

I’m a big believer in learning the language of a place you are visiting. While this is not usually realistic, I think people should at least make the effort to learn a few key phrases, even if it is just…

Holocaust Memorial, Berlin

Built in 2005, the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin serves as a reminder of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. It’s not something you would instantly recognise as a memorial, but definitely worth a visit. I arrived in the busy Potsdamer…

Tenerife!

The wanderers return! We were quite late booking our holiday this year, as it’s been quite a hectic summer. My brother just got married, so we’ve had hen dos, stag dos, dress fittings, nail appointments, hair appointments and goodness knows…

Boardmasters Festival!

Well hello there! It’s been a while since my last post, and I’ve been very busy!! I’ve recently come back from Boardmasters festival in Newquay, and in preparation for the camping (I haven’t been since brownies!) we thought it’d be…

It’s been a while…

And I can’t even pretend it’s because I’ve been crazy busy because…well…I haven’t 🙁 I have however, been looking at the next trip! We’ve been back from Paris for about 6 weeks and I’m getting itchy feet…I want to plan…

Paris again!

So after a long day visiting some well known landmarks, we called it a day after our extremely long stint at the Louvre (you can read about that and the previous days in Paris in my other posts). Another early…

The Louvre

After a casual stroll through Jardin des Tuileries past people enjoying the lazy afternoon sun, and children playing with boats, we were welcomed by the grand sight of the Musee du Louvre, or simply, the Louvre. We had a few…

Paris – The city of…

Love, culture, amazing sights, and above all sore feet! So we’ve just come back from a long weekend in Paris for my boyfriends birthday, and I’ll be honest…I wasn’t looking forward to it as much as other cities we’ve been…

The joys of home :)

So recently I’ve decided that in a bid to boost the travel fund, I should spend some time (and save some money) exploring and discovering the sights on offer in the UK. I’ve lived here my whole life, so I…

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…

You sound like you’re from Londooonnnn!!

Well hello there! So this weekend was a busy one…no trips abroad, but my boyfriend & I spent the day in London with his family for his mum’s birthday. In true English style, it was pouring down with rain, but…
