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…

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 – Rundetaarn in Danish – is just a winding slope to…

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 navigate by foot. Nala Individuellhotel is conveniently located 5 minutes’…

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 being largely flattened, and been added to UNESCO World Heritage…

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. So when the opportunity arose to go to Norway for…

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 top. Of course, this had to be one of 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 great time, and was genuinely sad to be heading home…not…

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 somewhere to grab a bite for breakfast, and ended up…

Next stop: Innsbruck

Early would be an understatement. I wasn’t sure whether a 6.30am train would be a good idea, but after a few people said it’d be worth it to get to Innsbruck early, I went ahead and booked it. To say I was regretting it when I had to get up…

Seeing the sights of Vienna!

The days when we didn’t have to catch a train or other transport generally started a bit later, because who doesn’t love a bit of a lie in? Unfortunately, the horses of the Spanish Riding School only exercise (that we could see) in the morning, so we were up and…

Wrapping things up in Prague!

The joys of staying so close to the Old Town Hall meant it was a great excuse to wander through the Christmas market there each day. Although we’d attempted to have a good look at what was on offer the night before, the crowds got the best of us. So…
