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 [...]

Venice | The City That Glows

I have never liked early starts. I can't sleep because I am always absolutely convinced that my 3 alarms won't go off and I'll miss my flight. Thankfully, my alarms (and my boyfriend's back-up alarms) successfully managed to get me out of bed and to Heathrow in time for my 8.45am flight to Venice. As [...]

Dresden-4
Gallery, Innsbruck

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…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 [...]

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, [...]

Photo Friday: Chapel

I'm still reeling from my visit to the stunning St Albans Cathedral! When I first entered the cathedral, I walked into the main area of worship (pews, altar, that kind of thing). As I made my way through, soaking up all the different aspects on offer, I found myself in Lady Chapel. Dedicated to Mary, [...]

Postcard from…La Sagrada Familia

Quite possibly my favourite building ever, Sagrada Familia is a stunningly epic cathedral in the centre of Barcelona, Spain. Built by the architect Gaudi, who has left his stamp all over the city, the church is still years away from being completed. But that doesn't mean it's not worth a visit now! It was one of the [...]

Photo Friday: Local Church

For some reason I love churches - I think it's the way that nearly all of them are unique and built for such a purpose. There's so much history in the building and although I'm not religious, I love the way the church can mean so much for so many people. Plus, they're nearly always [...]

Photo Friday: Bridge to Monkey Island

There's a little island nestled away in a place called Bray, just outside West London. My boyfriend and I ventured for Afternoon Tea on this little island, oddly called Monkey Island. As we were booking afternoon tea, there was a little note at the bottom saying that you wouldn't be able to drive all the [...]

Photo Friday: Cloud Surfing

I'm not a great fan of flying at times, and yet at other times I love it. On our recent trip to Tenerife there was no way I could hate the flight - it was so smooth, hardly any turbulence and stunning views to match! As I sat and peered out the window, I realised that [...]
