8 Views You Won’t Get From Flying

Europe is home to some of the most amazing and most-visited cities in the world. It's a checklist of stunning architecture, thousands of years of history, high-end fashion, world-famous landmarks, luxury and anything else you could ever want from a city. For many, flying is the easiest way to get from A to B, whether… Continue reading 8 Views You Won’t Get From Flying

How To: Travel Europe By Train

My love of travelling by train has been growing steadily over the past few years since I first took the Eurostar to Paris. I’m not a great fan of flying, and initially took the train to Paris in the hopes I’d get to visit somewhere without having to board a plane. Before then, the longest… Continue reading How To: Travel Europe By Train

Hotel Review, Venice

Relais Venezia, Venice

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 world-famous San Marco Square, Relais… Continue reading Relais Venezia, Venice

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 – Munich | A Day Of Travel

First rule of holiday: no alarms. And yet, I woke on the sixth day of my trip to the sound of my alarm. Joy. Unfortunately, it was necessary to allow us the time to fill our bellies at the breakfast buffet before we checked out. The walk from the train station to the city centre just… Continue reading Verona – Munich | A Day Of Travel

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 | 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. It can only be described as a new personal best for me as the world's worst morning person. With… Continue reading Venice | Goodbye water, hello Verona!
