Postcards, Verona TD

Postcards from…Verona

My original intention was to travel from Venice to Strasbourg via Milan, where I'd have a brief stopover before continuing on to France. As I discussed my travel plans with an Italian colleague, she didn't look too sure. After asking my reasons for heading to Milan specifically, she suggested looking at Verona instead. Well, I… Continue reading Postcards from…Verona

7 Sights To Make You Fall In Love With Verona

Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou Romeo? Well, it's safe to say I didn't find Romeo among the throng of tourists that waited patiently - and not so patiently - to take their place on the infamous Juliet's balcony, but I certainly fell in love with the city that plays host to Shakespeare's famous Romeo and Juliet.… Continue reading 7 Sights To Make You Fall In Love With Verona

Bath

Bath | Roman Ruins and Big Baths

Spontaneity is fun, but hard to fit in when every day seems to be super busy and planned so far in advance. So last week when my boyfriend suggested we head to the British city of Bath two days later, I jumped at the chance. A quick search for an available hotel, a sharp intake… Continue reading Bath | Roman Ruins and Big Baths

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

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

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

Gallery, Prague

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

London

Postcards from…The Shard

Panoramic views of London don't come much better than from The Shard, and on my recent visit to the viewing platforms on floors 68 and 69 I was lucky enough to have a clear day with superb views of the city. As a fan of sweeping, panoramic views of any city, I've visited my fair… Continue reading Postcards from…The Shard

London | A Flying Visit To The Shard!

If there is a better way to see a city than up the highest building soaking up the panoramic views, then I am yet to find it. I took a trip on the London Eye with my family when I was younger, at a time I think it was still called the Millennium Wheel -… Continue reading London | A Flying Visit To The Shard!

Dresden

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 Christmas markets in Germany. That… Continue reading Dresden, Germany
