London Lumiere

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…

Hamburg, Germany

The city of Hamburg was second on my visit list in December, and while I only had a few days to explore, I had great fun checking the place out! While I may have taken a fair number of photos,…

Copenhagen Admiral Hotel, Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a city known for it’s price tag, and it can be hard to find a bargain without compromising on the hotel. Thankfully, the city is quite compact, so finding a hotel not slap bang in the city centre…

Prague | Crowds, Castles and Climbs

One of the perks of staying in a hotel next to a shopping centre is that we didn’t have to go searching for breakfast. A few minutes after we’d left our room we were sitting with coffee and a croissant…

Prague | Even more cobblestones!

Up early, we were on the move again to a new city and a new country – Prague was calling us! Although we’d jumped in a taxi to the hotel from the train station, we didn’t think it was actually…

Copenhagen, Denmark

I had an amazing time exploring Copenhagen, and here are just a few of the many photos I managed to take of such a pretty city! You can find out what I got up to in Copenhagen here. 

Speedy tour of Dresden!

An early morning search for a croissant is my second favourite way to start the day (first is to have said croissant brought to me). The search led us to a McCafe, a concept that will never wear thin until…

Dresden bound!

With an afternoon train booked to Dresden, we had the morning to finish exploring Hamburg before moving on to the next city. We were up, packed and checked out in double time, leaving us plenty of time to find Hamburg…

Trains, ferries and automobiles…

The third day of our mini-Europe adventure started early as we had a train to catch to Hamburg! After the difficulty I’d had with my backpack on the first day, added to the distance from our hotel to Copenhagen central…

Copenhagen | Did someone say windy?

Feet already sore from all the walking we did on our first day in Copenhagen, we readied ourselves for the only full day we had in Copenhagen. We finally were out at about half 10, and there were barely any…

Kicking things off with Copenhagen!

Day 1 of my mini-Europe trip started in Copenagen. Well, it actually started in London at 3am with the world’s worst taxi driver who forgot where he was taking my boyfriend and I before we’d even got to the end…

It’s really happening?!

16 days, 4 countries and a couple of backpacks. I have so many far-fetched and imaginative ideas that many remain just that, ideas. But this time my latest idea has actually come to life, and on Saturday my boyfriend and…

Taste of Berlin: Christmas Markets

Berlin at Christmas is the perfect way to get yourself in the Christmas spirit. From the huge buildings wrapped as presents, to the epic number of Christmas stalls dotted around the city, Christmas takes over the city. And it’s enough to…

Homomonument, Amsterdam

There are a few monuments around the world dedicated to those who lost their lives to the Nazis, particularly in the concentration camps. While the first group of people who spring to mind when thinking of concentration camps are Jewish…

Temple Church, London

Just in case I hadn’t already mentioned it – I love this church. I’ve shared the postcards I picked up while there and I wrote about how I ended up being able to see this church. It may not be…

Postcard from…Temple Church

As if the inside of the church isn’t stunning enough, the outside of Temple Church is just as interesting to look at! The level of detail on this hidden London church isn’t on the same level as Sagrada Familia or…

Postcards from…Paris

The postcard collection is growing! These postcards came to me courtesy of my parents, who just enjoyed their first visit to Paris and their first experience on the Eurostar. In fact, I’m not sure if they enjoyed the Eurostar more…

Travel gifts from Paris!

I love bringing back goodies from my travels to share with people. And the next best thing when I can’t go exploring is when other people bring back goodies for me! My parents have just returned from a long weekend…

Schokoladen Museum, Cologne

When planning my trip to Cologne I found the Lindt chocolate museum, located on a funky island on the Rhine. A whole museum dedicated to chocolate? How could I ever miss an opportunity to spend time surrounded by all things chocolate?!…
