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…

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…

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…

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…

On the horizon – Norway!

Most people with a 9 – 5 office job will understand the monotony of going to work in an office for five days a week. The problems that come up are often the same, and the work varies…but not enough…

The light festival has come to London! After trying to find a way to make it to Amsterdam’s light festival, I was thrilled to find out that London was hosting it’s own light festival. After wanting to see Amsterdam’s for…
