MY TOP 10 EUROPEAN CITIES

Updated May 2020 It took me a long time to compile this list simply because I kept disagreeing with myself. I planned a top ten then contemplated making it longer, to fit in the other places that definitely do warrant a mention but sadly don’t quite make it (in my eyes). Of course, there’s plenty … Continue reading MY TOP 10 EUROPEAN CITIES

A Day Trip to Krka National Park, Croatia

A few years ago, I road tripped around Croatia from Zagreb down to Dubrovnik, stopping at Plitvice National Park. It was out of season, incredibly empty and felt like our own personal paradise; walking along the boardwalks and bending down to admire all the little fish. The only thing that was missing in this, was … Continue reading A Day Trip to Krka National Park, Croatia

48 Hours in Brussels, Belgium

Brussels isn't somewhere I had ever hugely considered, I didn't know that much about it and to this day, I'm not quite sure how we ended up deciding to go there. Nonetheless, I'm glad that we did. It's not a huge city centre - small but perfectly formed, with a lot of history, great biscuits … Continue reading 48 Hours in Brussels, Belgium

Day 3 | TOURS | WINE TRIP

I just realised that in my last post (when we arrived in Tours), I didn't think to point out that Tours is a city in France. I did not arrive somewhere in order to take multiple tours. I'm not sure if that needed clarification or not but there you go. As you were.  TOURS Day … Continue reading Day 3 | TOURS | WINE TRIP

DAY 1 | PARIS | FRENCH WINE TOUR

A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend and I spent a weekend in Paris, then got the train out to the Loire Valley for a few days with my parents touring and tasting the wine region. We got really, really lucky with the weather in that it was boiling hot with bright sunshine, out of … Continue reading DAY 1 | PARIS | FRENCH WINE TOUR

FREE FERRIES AND SECRET CAFES | AMSTERDAM DAY 1 | WEEKEND WANDERING

Considering its only a 45 minute plane ride away and a good friend of mine lives there its pretty much a travesty that I hadn't visited Amsterdam since 2015. Though judging by the title of this post, you've probably figured out that I finally managed to return to the land of cheese and beer... Last … Continue reading FREE FERRIES AND SECRET CAFES | AMSTERDAM DAY 1 | WEEKEND WANDERING

CHIHUAHUA CAFE | EDINBURGH | WEEKEND WANDERING

Usually I love the train journey up to Edinburgh - its about 5.5 hours long but it gives me time to write, read and watch tv in comfortable, warm seats. Usually moments when I get to do these things are slotted in in between stressful ones and are therefore very rarely dedicated just to this; … Continue reading CHIHUAHUA CAFE | EDINBURGH | WEEKEND WANDERING

PARIS IN AUTUMN | WEEKEND WANDERING

Shred the missing posters. Stand down the news. We are still alive and in fact, very well. So well, that we've managed to make a 13 minute video of a 4 day jolly in Paris. The leaves were on the ground. Rain fell from the sky. Cold shrouded us. It was autumn and it was … Continue reading PARIS IN AUTUMN | WEEKEND WANDERING

AN UNSUCCESSFUL AFTERNOON | MUNICH

With only 3 days in beautiful Munich, we decided to conquer as many tourist spots as we possibly could. Hence in one afternoon, we jumped on a train with the intention of visiting the BMW Museum, the Olympic Park AND Nymphemburg Palace. Perhaps a little ambitious, but nothing we haven't done before. First things first, logistics. … Continue reading AN UNSUCCESSFUL AFTERNOON | MUNICH
