A Day on Hvar Island, Croatia

While visiting Split for a few days, my boyfriend and I thought it would be nice to explore one of the islands off the coast. Each island has something different - Bol and Brac are both great places to visit but Hvar is probably the most well known (it’s where a lot of the Made … Continue reading A Day on Hvar Island, Croatia

An Offbeat Weekend in Split, Croatia

I adore Split. I went there a few years ago on the first of many road trips with my friend Hamilton (blog post here). We travelled from Zagreb, down to Plitvice, then onto Split and Hvar before finishing in Dubrovnik.

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
