10 Reasons To Go To Lisbon Right This Second

After having lived in Spain for quite some time, I really should have found a week within that time to pop on over to Portugal for a wee adventure! But my time finally came earlier in the year when my boyfriend and I were looking to book a cheeky getaway to Copenhagen. Although flights to the must-see capital of Denmark were endearingly cheap, everything else was looking like it may cost us more than we could afford at the timeRead more

Autumn In Europe: My Top 11 Places To Explore This Season!

Whenever someone asks me what my favourite season is, I always say Spring as it’s vibrant, it’s hopeful and it’s the start to a really great couple of months. But if we’re being honest, Autumn is my absolute guilty pleasure. Talking about it with new people is similar to when I talk about trashy TV with new people that I want to impress… I’ll turn my nose up slightly and pretend that I don’t really care for it because IRead more

How To Spend A Week In Rome

Rome is the City of echoes, the City of illusions, and the City of yearning…   Rome is one of the most glorious places I’ve ever visited, and I’m lucky enough to have lived there for 6 months, so it seemed like the perfect place to go with my best friend just before she moves away to Vietnam.

Why I’m Voting To Remain In The EU And You Should Too!

Every now and then one of your friends does something bloody amazing that reminds you of why you picked out that person and decided that you wanted to keep them around – George Bevan did that a few days ago when he wrote the most glorious facebook status that has ever made it’s way to my timeline about all the reasons that I’ve not quite managed to put into words myself yet about why we should most definitely be votingRead more

How To Spend Three Days In Madrid

As I’ve mentioned before in previous posts, I will always have a sentimental attachment to Madrid as it was the first place that I’d ever been to on my own, followed by moving there a few months later. Madrid stuck by me while I sorted myself out and made me a much happier person than the one I was before I moved out there. While Madrid is pretty big and I had all the time in the world to goRead more

Paris: I’m Sorry, But I Just Don’t Get It!

Paris is a City famous for love & art. A place where you will lose sense of time completely, leaving nothing but you and Paris. I’m sorry, but no. No, no, no! All the movies, songs, TV shows & even blog posts lied to me about Paris. One of my earliest memories of wanting to visit the City was when I watched the Mary-Kate and Ashley classic “Passport to Paris” as a kid. In true Mary-Kate and Ashley fashion, theRead more

Budapest: The City Where Anything Is Possible…

There is something special about Budapest; you can feel it from the moment you arrive in the city. There isn’t anything in particular that stands out as the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen and the reason why Budapest is so special but you can just feel it all around you.

Prague: The Most Beautiful City There Ever Was…

Praha, the most majestic City I’ve ever seen is famous worldwide for its cobbled streets, Jewish quarter, cheap beer & endless beautiful things to go and see. If I received a Czech Koruna for every time a tourist lost their shit over how beautiful something is then I would happily be eating an unlimited supply of goulash accompanied with a beer or two for the rest of my life. The few days that I spent in Prague were absolutely magical.Read more
