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…

Time For Another Train: Heading to Vienna!

After 3 days in Prague, it was time to move on to our next city – Vienna. I’d booked an early train to try and make the most of our time in Vienna, and last minute packing meant we thought we were cutting it quite fine to get to the…

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…

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 to be noteworthy. I’ve gotten to that part of the…

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 so long, I couldn’t miss the opportunity to visit one…

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, here are some of my favourites…

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 isn’t a problem.

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 planning our day. Great start! Once the plan had been…

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 that far to walk, so set out on the 20-minute…

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 we have them in England. Breakfast sorted, we were ready…

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 Dom and the fish market. The map we had showed…

Hamburg | Churches, Miniature cities and Christmas!

Our apartment in Hamburg didn’t have any Wi-Fi, which actually turned out to be good for us as we didn’t waste time in the morning checking social media and instead just got up and headed out to see what Hamburg was about. The first stop of the day was St…

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 station, we decided to jump in a taxi. Quick, efficient,…

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 people around as we wandered along the water’s edge down…

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 of the road. And it’s a short road. Needless to…

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 I will be setting off on our longest trip together…

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 get even the biggest grinch in the festive spirit. There…

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 people, they were just one of the many groups persecuted.…

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 on the same level of grandeur as Notre Dame, Westminster…
