Bath | Roman Ruins and Big Baths

Spontaneity is fun, but hard to fit in when every day seems to be super busy and planned so far in advance. So last week when my boyfriend suggested we head to the British city of Bath two days later, I jumped at the chance. A quick search for an…

Postcards from…Venice

Venice was my first introduction to Italy, a country I have been wanting to visit for years. There was a high expectation of something amazing as I touched down in the city, and the four days I spent there definitely lived up to everything I hoped it would be and more. I picked…

Iceland | Exploring Reykjavik

After a fun couple or weeks exploring Europe, we’d finally come to the last day of our epic trip. And what better way to start the day than with an almighty bang at 5am! We both woke with a jolt, and I rushed to the window thinking a car had…

Frankfurt | More Than Just A Stopover?

The original reason for coming to Frankfurt was purely because it was the cheapest place we could get a flight to Iceland. But, when presented with an opportunity to explore a new German city, how can I possibly refuse? After arriving late in the evening and taking a 20-minute detour…

Innsbruck, Austria

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: I love Innsbruck! It was a last minute addition to our mini-Europe adventure, but I am so glad we took the slight detour and time to visit. It was my first sight of mountains in real life, and it took…

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

Cologne Cathedral, Germany

Taking a whopping 632 years to finish building, it’s easy to see why this iconic cathedral welcomes over 20,000 visitors a year. Finally finished in 1880, Kölner Dom has since survived World War II despite the rest of the city being largely flattened, and been added to UNESCO World Heritage…

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…

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…

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…

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 Notre Dame, but it’s the modesty and simplicity that make it…

Postcard from…Temple Church

I made my way into London last month for a family gathering, and found that not only was London hosting ‘Open London’, an event allowing the public into usually private places, but also that Temple Church was part of the event. I’d been wanting to visit the church for quite a…
