8 Things Not To Miss in Lisbon, Portugal

I didn't really know what to expect with Lisbon. I'd seen the pictures of beautiful streets and rooftop bars but still wasn't sure of the overall vibe of the city. It's become a very popular destination recently with almost everyone I know going, or planning to go. This is sometimes something I can get a … Continue reading 8 Things Not To Miss in Lisbon, Portugal

RIGA | DAY 1 | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

Apologies for the radio silence but its been a bit of a crazy month.

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.

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...

LDN – NY | DAY 1 | NEW YORK

Being the brave adventurers we are, last month my mum and I left the averagely cold weather of London for the extreme cold that was New York at the time. We were there for 5 days and did about 5 million things. Not bad going. Plus, after panic buying jumpers and squashing them into our luggage, … Continue reading LDN – NY | DAY 1 | NEW YORK

LOVE, ART, FASHION (AND THAT WAS JUST THE HOTEL) | MONTREAL | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

We left our lovely apartment in Quebec City bright and early (*tears*), and after a fair amount of kerfuffle involving finding our rental car in the car park, a parking inspector and some steep hills, we made it out of the windy streets and back on to the highway as we headed for our next destination... … Continue reading LOVE, ART, FASHION (AND THAT WAS JUST THE HOTEL) | MONTREAL | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

TOWERS, TOURS AND TICKETS | TORONTO | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

After a long, problem filled day, travelling from Dearborn (Michigan) to Toronto via Niagara Falls (blog post can be found here), our heads could not have hit our pillows more readily. Thankfully the hotel was nice, and we were able to climb into our beds without issue. We slept well and before we knew it, were wandering the … Continue reading TOWERS, TOURS AND TICKETS | TORONTO | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

NO SITTING DOWN | BERLIN | WEEKEND WANDERING

After our accidental 12 hour sleep, we awoke for our first full day in Berlin. We were pretty damn hungry seeing as we'd missed dinner the night before, so got up, got showered and dressed, then headed out onto the streets of Mitte, where we were staying. We'd noticed a health food cafe just down … Continue reading NO SITTING DOWN | BERLIN | WEEKEND WANDERING
