I stepped onto Albanian soil with heavy legs, dreaming of a shower. Shading my eyes from the sun I trudged towards passport control. After an unpleasant night in Corfu Airport and three hours of walking in the blistering sun I was glad to see the boat I’d arrived on disappear into the distance, a symbol […]
Iceland…where do I begin? It wasn’t so much a holiday as it was a gruelling, challenging, epic journey across what felt like another planet. Let’s just say you don’t go to Iceland to relax so if that’s the kind of trip you’re after, better you scoot off to a Greek island you can’t pronounce the […]
We’ve all been there. We’ve all told ourselves “Screw it I’m on holiday, I’ll deal with it when I get home” I’ve whispered those words to myself more times than I can count and the reality is that when I get home, the weight stays on. Until my next trip looms ever closer and only […]
Ah the northern lights… the elusive, magical lights in the sky. The first time I ever came across the northern lights was in that Disney movie, brother bear in that scene where the spirits are dancing in the sky. Of course at the time, being 12 years old and completely unwordly I had no idea […]
Oktoberfest is an insane whirlwind of beer, cleavage, broken glass, giant pretzels, singing, dancing, laughter and the occasional power spew. Everyone is happy and grinning like idiots and nobody is discriminating which I think is a big part of what makes Oktoberfest such an enjoyable experience. The young and the old, German or otherwise, everyone […]
Want to travel somewhere a little off the beaten track in Europe? Bosnia & Herzegovina is the place!
The sole reason for booking my trip to Bosnia & Herzegovina was how affordable it was to get there, I had a spare week up my sleeve to go somewhere and I found flights from London to Dubrovnik for £100 return so I booked it! to my surprise it was only another £100 on top […]
Four years ago I went on the adventure of a lifetime. I quit my job, packed my bags and set off on a 3 month adventure across Europe – but not before ALOT of planning! when my mate and I first spoke about it we had no idea where to start. Do we just book a […]
Yes! it’s not your typical holiday experience but it’s definitely worth checking out. I had no idea how unalike Eastern Europe is to it’s western counterpart, it was totally different to any place on the continent that I’d been before (which was so exciting!) I won’t lie and say it was beautiful and stunning and […]
I’d take a stab and guess that you’ve probably never heard of Sibenik, pronounced ‘shib-en-ik’ … it’s one of those little towns without a major tourist attraction and for that reason hasn’t quite made it onto the list of ‘bucket list’ places to see. It’s off the beaten path and not very well known, the kind of place I […]
London is a vibrant and exciting place, all of us long termers know that! it’s what got us hooked isn’t it? London has it’s own thing going on though… when you begin exploring a little on the outskirts you realise how remarkably beautiful England actually is. And the best part? this isn’t America or Australia, […]
