Postcards, Venice

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 up three postcards from Venice,… Continue reading Postcards from…Venice

Iceland | Taking A Dip In The Blue Lagoon

One of the most popular things to do in Iceland is take a trip to the Blue Lagoon. Although we'd spent most of yesterday in the car, it was still super tiring, so we couldn't wait for a day of rest and relaxation at the infamous Blue Lagoon. Still struggling with the darkness in the… Continue reading Iceland | Taking A Dip In The Blue Lagoon

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 to the apartment, the evening… Continue reading Frankfurt | More Than Just A Stopover?

Luxembourg

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, checked out and headed straight… Continue reading Luxembourg | An Epic Leg Day

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… Continue reading Strasbourg | Boat Tours, Kugelhopfs and Yet Another Train Journey

Strasbourg | Pretty Buildings and A Slight Chill…

Munich was a great teaser for our upcoming visit to Frankfurt,  and served as a lovely stopover that meant we didn't have to change trains about a million times between Verona and Strasbourg. What it also meant was that we'd have to get up before the crack of dawn to catch a 6.24am train from Munich… Continue reading Strasbourg | Pretty Buildings and A Slight Chill…

Verona | An Italian Love Affair

Stepping out to sunny skies, we were on a mission to see as much of this stunning city as possible on our only full day in Verona. We made our way straight to Verona Castle, just a short walk from the main square and our hotel. On arrival, I was so glad I'd charged my camera… Continue reading Verona | An Italian Love Affair

Venice | Gondola Rides and Prison Visits

Although I don't live by a church in England, I'm sure the bells do not ring very often. In Venice, however, they not only ring on the hour, but on the half hour, and sometimes at random times for about 5 minutes. They ring early in the morning, and even as late as midnight. Luckily,… Continue reading Venice | Gondola Rides and Prison Visits

Venice | The City That Glows

I have never liked early starts. I can't sleep because I am always absolutely convinced that my 3 alarms won't go off and I'll miss my flight. Thankfully, my alarms (and my boyfriend's back-up alarms) successfully managed to get me out of bed and to Heathrow in time for my 8.45am flight to Venice. As… Continue reading Venice | The City That Glows

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 my favourite snaps from my… Continue reading Prague, Czech Republic
