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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Bergen | My Introduction To Thor

I was so lucky to have such a lovely and sunny day free to explore Bergen. The next two days were consistent, ridiculous levels of rain, and I got so wet on my first day trying to find the conference venue that…

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…

The Round Tower, Copenhagen

Built in the 17th century, this still-functioning observatory offers amazing views over Copenhagen. While most buildings which offer panoramic views of a city have hundreds of steps to tackle, or a sneaky lift to the top, the Round Tower –…

Nala Individuellhotel, Innsbruck

Tucked away in the stunning Alps, Innsbruck is a small city in Austria that just oozes charm. When looking for a place to stay, you can’t go far wrong in such a compact city, with a centre that is easy to…

Cologne Cathedral, Germany

Taking a whopping 632 years to finish building, it’s easy to see why this iconic cathedral welcomes over 20,000 visitors a year. Finally finished in 1880, Kölner Dom has since survived World War II despite the rest of the city…

Postcards from…Copenhagen

After spending just 48 hours in the amazing city of Copenhagen, Denmark, I managed to see a fair number of the sights in the city. I picked up a few postcards from this trip, but I really like these two!

Postcard from…Paris

This one’s a golden oldie, and I love postcards like these that show lots of different sights in a city! It’s just a reminder of how many amazing things there are to see and do in Paris! 

Going Solo In Stavanger

My first flight on my own, and my first trip abroad alone. To say I was nervous would be somewhat of an understatement. After my mini-Europe adventure in December, I was starting to get itchy feet again by mid January….

8 Reasons Europe Is Better In Winter

There’s nothing quite like exploring a city with the sun shining on your face, the scent of sun cream in the air and the prospect of picnics in a park. Summer trips are ideal for a lot of people, but there…

Postcards from…Dresden

Although I had just one full day in Dresden, I made the most of it by exploring the compact city and seeing as much as possible. First stop of the day was Frauenkirche, and I loved the views from the…

All Good Things Must Come To An End…

16 days, 4 countries and a couple of backpacks. Our mini-Europe adventure had finally come to an end, and as we made the 45-minute journey to the airport, I couldn’t help but reflect on our time away. I’d had a…

Munich | Exploring A Bavarian Beauty!

Munich was the city of big plans. Munich was also the city of extreme tiredness. Not the best combination… It was a slow start to our first day in Munich, purely because we were so tired. We struggled to find…

The City That Stole My Heart – Innsbruck!

After a complete washout yesterday, we kept our fingers crossed that the forecasted sun made an appearance in the city of Innsbruck. And an appearance it most definitely made! With a train booked in the evening, we wanted to make…
