Venice | Goodbye water, hello Verona!

Time really does fly when you're having fun, and as we'd now woken up to the fourth day of our trip it meant it was time to move on. After a quick breakfast we were up, packed and checked out by 11am.

Venice | Gondola Rides and Prison Visits

Amsterdam!

So I’ve been back from Amsterdam for a few days, and thought it was about time I shared the fun my boyfriend and I had! It was a last minute booking, so I’ll be honest, I didn’t really know what to expect – we didn’t even know how long the flight was! Luckily for us, [...]
