Iceland | I’ve Arrived, Whether I Like It Or Not…

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 us ages to walk around [...]

Postcards from…Innsbruck

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 [...]

Postcards from…Bergen

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 [...]

Bergen: So Much To See, So Little Time

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 [...]

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 in a Galeria, which is [...]

The City That Stole My Heart – Innsbruck!

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, [...]

Next stop: Innsbruck

Early would be an understatement. I wasn't sure whether a 6.30am train would be a good idea, but after a few people said it'd be worth it to get to Innsbruck early, I went ahead and booked it. To say I was regretting it when I had to get up at 5am to get ready [...]

Floating Flower Market, Amsterdam

Claimed to be the only floating flower market in the world, the flower market in Amsterdam is definitely a must see. Moored up on the Singel canal, just a short walk from Dam Square, the market is made up of a number of houseboats, or shopboats if you like, that are permanently moored year round. [...]
