Venice | The City That Glows

I have never liked early starts. I can’t sleep because I am always absolutely convinced that my 3 alarms won’t go off and I’ll miss my flight. Thankfully, my alarms (and my boyfriend’s back-up alarms) successfully managed to get me out of bed and to Heathrow in time for my…

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague is a beautiful city, and after spending four days there I got just a taste of everything on offer. With so much history, stunning architecture and amazing Christmas markets – yes, it’s coming up to that time again! – it is a great city to explore! Here are some of…

A Night In London’s West End

My absolute favourite thing to do in London is visit the West End and see one of the world-famous shows that are on offer. Team it up with delicious German food, and it’s starting to sound like my kind of night! Grand plans – well, grandish plans – were made…

Innsbruck, Austria

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: I love Innsbruck! It was a last minute addition to our mini-Europe adventure, but I am so glad we took the slight detour and time to visit. It was my first sight of mountains in real life, and it took…

Postcards from…Innsbruck

The tiny little city of Innsbruck sits nestled in the mountains of the Alps. As I sat on the train from Vienna, I could see the mountains looming in the distance and already knew I was going to love the place. I had no idea what to expect as Innsbruck was a last…

Summer Reads 2016

When the holiday countdown begins, the search begins for books to read while spending lazy days lounging by the pool or in the garden soaking up the sun. It can be tempting to dust off the books from last year and pull them out for their annual showing, because I…

Tenerife | Sun, Sea And Total Relaxation

The last time I ventured overseas for a week of relaxation was September 2014. While I’ve worked hard and been lucky to have a couple of breaks overseas since, it’s been far too long since I spent the day doing nothing by the pool. And I really enjoy lazying by…

Dresden, Germany

Dresden was never a city that spiked high on my Germany to-see list until I stumbled across it trying to find a midway point between Berlin and Prague on my mini-Europe adventure. A bit of research led me to the Striezelmarkt, which is one of the oldest and most traditional

Postcards from…Vienna

Before visiting Vienna, I thought it was just going to be pretty buildings and an Opera House. Although I only had a short time in the city, I quickly realised it has so much more to offer than just some fancy brickwork, and it’s the reason I’ll be heading back…

Morning Coffee at Luton Hoo

Just a stone’s throw from London, the impressive estate of Luton Hoo offers a chance to indulge in a spot of luxury. We’re talking spa, afternoon tea, fancy dinner, top notch hotel kind of luxury. After sampling afternoon tea at Luton Hoo a couple of months ago, I was back on…

A Night At The Vienna State Opera

If there was one thing on my Vienna wish list, it was to visit the opera. Before embarking on my mini-Europe adventure, I knew there were a few things in each city I really wanted to experience. And visiting the opera in a city renowned for its culture was, of…

Postcards from…Bergen

I had the best time exploring Bergen, and although I didn’t have much free time in the city I was determined to make the most of it! You can find out more about what I got up to here, but after having a wander around the harbour area, I made…

Bergen | So Much To See, So Little Time

I’d smashed my first solo trip to Stavanger and was full of confidence for the next leg of my Norwegian adventure that would take me to Bergen. Never wanting to be too confident, I made sure I had plenty of time to spare for the airport transfer, check in, bag…
