Strasbourg | Boat Tours, Kugelhopfs and Yet Another Train Journey

Although we had only arrived in Strasbourg the day before, the accommodation in Strasbourg was some of the priciest of the trip, and so we were only staying for one night. Which meant another morning up early to pack and after a bite for breakfast we were checked out, leaving our bags at the apartments [...]

Venice | Gondola Rides and Prison Visits

While there, I didn't get to see much else than the harbour and the seafront, but it's so pretty [...]

England, Ramsgate

Speedy trip to the seaside!

Tucked away in the southeast of England, Ramsgate is a charming seaside town. So when my boyfriend and I were invited to a family friend's wedding there, we jumped at the chance for a mini break away! Although it's just a couple of hours drive from West London, passing Heathrow airport on a Friday afternoon as [...]
