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…

How To: Travel Europe By Train

My love of travelling by train has been growing steadily over the past few years since I first took the Eurostar to Paris. I’m not a great fan of flying, and initially took the train to Paris in the hopes I’d get to visit somewhere without having to board a…

Luxembourg | An Epic Leg Day

Luxembourg City isn’t the biggest place, and we could have really seen everything in a day. But, it’s nice to not have to rush around trying to fit everything in, so we left some sights for our second day in the city. With an afternoon train booked, we packed up,…

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…

Venice | Goodbye water, hello Verona!

Time really does fly when you’re having fun, and as we’d now woken up to the fourth day of our trip it meant it was time to move on. After a quick breakfast we were up, packed and checked out by 11am. It can only be described as a new personal best for me as the…

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…

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…

All Good Things Must Come To An End…

16 days, 4 countries and a couple of backpacks. Our mini-Europe adventure had finally come to an end, and as we made the 45-minute journey to the airport, I couldn’t help but reflect on our time away. I’d had a great time, and was genuinely sad to be heading home…not…

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…

Trains, ferries and automobiles…

The third day of our mini-Europe adventure started early as we had a train to catch to Hamburg! After the difficulty I’d had with my backpack on the first day, added to the distance from our hotel to Copenhagen central station, we decided to jump in a taxi. Quick, efficient,…

Starting the journey…

After posting my recent Travel Plan, I was so happy with the response! I was touched that people took the time to offer their advice, and I have definitely taken it all on board. While everything isn’t completely booked yet (or even planned!) I’ve got the first two stops locked…

Taste of Berlin: Travel

In a city as efficient and modern as Berlin, you just know that getting around is going to be super easy, regardless of whether you speak the language or not. First things first – getting to Berlin. There are a number of options available to you, depending on budget, time…
