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

2018 TRAVEL HIGHLIGHTS

This year has been a bit of a mad one, what with moving to the other side of the world and all. As well as that, I somehow managed to fit in a bunch of other trips, so these are my highlights.  Video: https://youtu.be/bfJJgxSydP4   New York This was an absolute dream trip with my mum. … Continue reading 2018 TRAVEL HIGHLIGHTS

MADRID – AMSTERDAM

This post is a little different to the usual, as the trip was undertaken for work. It involved driving from Madrid to Amsterdam, stopping off in various cities in between. I won't give a complete run down of the work trip because that is unlikely to help anyone (plus I didn't really see any of … Continue reading MADRID – AMSTERDAM

MODERN ART IN MUSEUM SQUARE | AMSTERDAM DAY 2 | WEEKEND WANDERING

And on the second day, the clocks changed. Thus, we did not rise until late morning. Yet, it was still Sunday so we weren't in a rush, so we awoke slowly and meandered to Amersfoort train station, where we caught a train in to Amsterdam central to see some of the best modern art The … Continue reading MODERN ART IN MUSEUM SQUARE | AMSTERDAM DAY 2 | WEEKEND WANDERING

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

2018 IS FINALLY HERE

HAPPY 2018 Y'ALL Congratulations to you all for making it through a terrible, terrible year. I won't bother to try to sum up world events as the news was absolutely inescapable and equally unforgivable last year. Waking up and looking at my phone still panics me slightly. On a similarly sad note, this blog is … Continue reading 2018 IS FINALLY HERE

CHEESE AND CLOGS | AMSTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING

Hallo! I am incredibly pleased to be reporting back with the last, but as always, not least of my time in the Netherlands. I had such a lovely trip, it's great to relive it. As I've said, it was in December last year, just before Christmas and I saw a good friend of mine. These … Continue reading CHEESE AND CLOGS | AMSTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING

BOND AND BAKERIES | ROTTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING

That's right. Bond. As in, James Bond. I am a huge Bond fan, and take every opportunity to see a spectacle put on in it's favour. My friend Karolina knows this, and found out there was an exhibition on all about designing 007 in Rotterdam, so we got the train over there. It was a temporary … Continue reading BOND AND BAKERIES | ROTTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING

CHRISTMAS, CULTURE AND CAKE | AMSTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING

In December of last year (2014), I took a trip to see my very good friend, Karolina, who lives in Amersfoort. As she is an excellent and incredibly lovely person, she welcomed me into her home and then showed me around. Now, I know Christmas travels aren't always at the front of people's minds as Christmas … Continue reading CHRISTMAS, CULTURE AND CAKE | AMSTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING
