In a city as compact as Venice, there are hotels within a stone’s throw of most places. But, trying to find somewhere central, comfortable and at a reasonable price is tricky in a city where most places carry a Venetian price tag. Location Just a few minutes’ walk from the…

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…

A Night In London’s West End

My absolute favourite thing to do in London is visit the West End and see one of the world-famous shows that are on offer. Team it up with delicious German food, and it’s starting to sound like my kind of night! Grand plans – well, grandish plans – were made…

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

Morning Coffee at Luton Hoo

Just a stone’s throw from London, the impressive estate of Luton Hoo offers a chance to indulge in a spot of luxury. We’re talking spa, afternoon tea, fancy dinner, top notch hotel kind of luxury. After sampling afternoon tea at Luton Hoo a couple of months ago, I was back on…

Munich | Exploring A Bavarian Beauty!

Munich was the city of big plans. Munich was also the city of extreme tiredness. Not the best combination… It was a slow start to our first day in Munich, purely because we were so tired. We struggled to find somewhere to grab a bite for breakfast, and ended up…

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…

Copenhagen | Did someone say windy?

Feet already sore from all the walking we did on our first day in Copenhagen, we readied ourselves for the only full day we had in Copenhagen. We finally were out at about half 10, and there were barely any people around as we wandered along the water’s edge down…

Kicking things off with Copenhagen!

Day 1 of my mini-Europe trip started in Copenagen. Well, it actually started in London at 3am with the world’s worst taxi driver who forgot where he was taking my boyfriend and I before we’d even got to the end of the road. And it’s a short road. Needless to…

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…

Travel gifts from Paris!

I love bringing back goodies from my travels to share with people. And the next best thing when I can’t go exploring is when other people bring back goodies for me! My parents have just returned from a long weekend in Paris to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday. It was…

Schokoladen Museum, Cologne

When planning my trip to Cologne I found the Lindt chocolate museum, located on a funky island on the Rhine. A whole museum dedicated to chocolate? How could I ever miss an opportunity to spend time surrounded by all things chocolate?! It just so happens that the museum was opposite the…

Postcard from…Rusty Gun

My mum and dad live on the edge of a large town. It should technically be a city, but for silly reasons (football team names…), it’s still a town. If you venture 5 minutes away, you’re in the countryside. Farmers land, village pubs and country lanes. I love the hustle…

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…

Palma | Bus tour fun and perfect endings!

Our last full day in Palma, yesterday was our last chance to get everything done that we’d missed so far. And the best way to fit everything in and see the top tourist sites? Bus Tour! That’s right, we went full on tourist and grabbed ourselves a couple of tickets…

Monkey Island Afternoon Tea

As a treat for my boyfriend, I thought it’d be nice to take him for afternoon tea. We’d already decided we were going to spend the day at Windsor Castle, so decided it’d be good to look for somewhere in that area. Windsor and the surrounding areas are lovely, so…
