An early start by Icelandic standards, we were up and out before dawn - although the fact dawn was after 10.30am made it much easier. Satnav set, roads checked, snacks packed and we were on our way to our first stop of the Golden Circle...Þingvellir National Park! One perk of hiring a car is that… Continue reading Iceland | A Tour Of The Golden Circle
The first full day in Iceland started with confusion. Something I had neglected to consider before booking Iceland was the minimal amount of daylight - the sun made an appearance about 11am and disappeared again about 4pm. The early evenings I could deal with as it wasn't that different to winter sunset in the UK,… Continue reading Iceland | Exploring The South Coast
Glad to step off the plane after the weirdest flight I've ever had, I was finally in Iceland. I had been very open since we'd left home two weeks ago that I was not, in any shape or form, bothered about coming to the country. In fact, it was the reason that we'd only booked… Continue reading Iceland | I’ve Arrived, Whether I Like It Or Not…
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
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 us ages to walk around… Continue reading Innsbruck, Austria
The tiny little city of Innsbruck sits nestled in the mountains of the Alps. As I sat on the train from Vienna, I could see the mountains looming in the distance and already knew I was going to love the place. I had no idea what to expect as Innsbruck was a last minute addition to my European… Continue reading Postcards from…Innsbruck
I had the best time exploring Bergen, and although I didn't have much free time in the city I was determined to make the most of it! You can find out more about what I got up to here, but after having a wander around the harbour area, I made my way up the mountain… Continue reading Postcards from…Bergen
I'd smashed my first solo trip to Stavanger and was full of confidence for the next leg of my Norwegian adventure that would take me to Bergen. Never wanting to be too confident, I made sure I had plenty of time to spare for the airport transfer, check in, bag drop etc. As it turns… Continue reading Bergen | So Much To See, So Little Time
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 in a Galeria, which is… Continue reading Munich | Exploring A Bavarian Beauty!
After a complete washout yesterday, we kept our fingers crossed that the forecasted sun made an appearance in the city of Innsbruck. And an appearance it most definitely made! With a train booked in the evening, we wanted to make the most of the day. Bags left at reception and all checked out by 10am,… Continue reading The City That Stole My Heart – Innsbruck!
