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

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 | 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… Continue reading Venice | The City That Glows

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… Continue reading Innsbruck, Austria

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… Continue reading Postcards from…Bergen

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,… Continue reading The City That Stole My Heart – Innsbruck!

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,… Continue reading Photo Friday: Chapel

Barcelona, Postcards

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… Continue reading Postcard from…La Sagrada Familia

Cologne, Photo Friday

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… Continue reading Photo Friday: Local Church

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… Continue reading Photo Friday: Cloud Surfing
