I’ll be honest, I’d never really thought about a city break in France, asides from the standard trip to Paris, nip up the Eiffel Tower, grab a croissant, snapchat yourself with the Mona Lisa and head home. So when Lille was decided to be destination of choice I grabbed one of the few guidebooks I … More Travel: What To Do In Lille?
You may have read my recent blog post on the exciting things I found in Gdnask, Poland. Whilst on this trip, visiting my brother, we spent a fair bit of time in the seaside town of Sopot, about twenty minutes by train away from Gdansk Old Town. Sopot is centred around a long main street which … More Travel: Sopot, Poland
The sunny shores of far off beaches are always appealing but there’s something completely delightful about a weekend on the Isle of Wight in springtime. There’s sunshine, ice cream and more mini golf than you could ever hope to complete in 48 hours and it doesn’t require a passport to get there.

I have previously written a fairly lengthy post about how to see the main sights of Rome in one day there, but I thought I’d give you a little more insight into my personal favourites and show off some of my absolute favourite photos from these historic locations. The Colosseum is about as far south in … More Travel: The Colosseum, Rome

Whilst that might not appeal to you immediately (I had my doubts too) as soon as I stepped … More Travel Tuesday: Hamburg’s Miniature Wonderland
There’s very little that can make you feel more festive than a Christmas market, and where better to experience one than in Germany? I recently spent a few days in Hamburg where the ice cold air made the smell of mulled wine and cinnamon in the streets even sweeter. Given that flights to Hamburg are … More Winter Travel: Hamburg Christmas Markets
The Mediterranean is filled with gorgeous cities, none more so than Calvi in Corsica. With water so clear and blue that swimming in it feels like you would be polluting it. This town is steeped in history, nowhere more so than the old town sitting a-top an imposingly steep hill. Getting up the first few … More Travel Tuesday: Corsica
Budget and time constraints sometimes mean you can’t stay in a city quite as long as you might want. For me the prime example came when I visited Rome in October. With just a few hours in this amazing place I wanted to see as much as I could, spending as little money as possible … More Travel| Rome In A Day
