Luxembourg | An Epic Leg Day

Luxembourg City isn’t the biggest place, and we could have really seen everything in a day. But, it’s nice to not have to rush around trying to fit everything in, so we left some sights for our second day in the city. With an afternoon train booked, we packed up,…

Luxembourg | Tiny Cities and Freezing Valleys

The older I get the more I appreciate a lay in. Especially on holiday, and especially when I’ve just travelled through 4 countries in as many days and am totally knackered. The day started much later than anticipated, but thankfully we had breakfast in our room after our supermarket raid the…

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague is a beautiful city, and after spending four days there I got just a taste of everything on offer. With so much history, stunning architecture and amazing Christmas markets – yes, it’s coming up to that time again! – it is a great city to explore! Here are some of…

Dresden, Germany

Dresden was never a city that spiked high on my Germany to-see list until I stumbled across it trying to find a midway point between Berlin and Prague on my mini-Europe adventure. A bit of research led me to the Striezelmarkt, which is one of the oldest and most traditional

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…

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…

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…

NH Köln City, Cologne

Cologne (Köln) is one of the largest cities in Germany, and home to the Köln Dom which is the biggest cathedral in Germany. Before visiting I wasn’t sure what else was in the city, but I do love a good church and had heard there were a few Christmas markets,…

Next stop – Cologne!

Our time in Berlin had all too quickly come to an end, and it was time to move on to our next city – Cologne. The day started early as we had tickets for a 8:47am train. As my phone was still stuck on UK time, the alarm was set…

Photo Friday: Christmas Tree

As we draw closer to the festive period, or more importantly the big day (Christmas…), decorations are popping up all over the country and all over the world. I saw this tree in the main square Grote Markt, Brussels yesterday. During the day, it’s an averagely impressive Christmas tree, but…

Last day in Berlin!

Our third day in Berlin was the last chance we’d have to tick more things off our list for the city, as we had an early train booked for the next morning. And I’m talking 8.40am early. On a Sunday. Double ouch! We woke up with the best intentions of…
