Winter Wonderland, London
I LOVE Christmas markets, and if I had the time and money, I would probably visit all the Christmas markets in Europe each year. Strolling passed charming little wooden chalets in your warmest winter coat, holding a hot chocolate or Glühwein, while festive songs are being played in the...
Cavehill, Belfast
When deciding on a destination for a weekend away a few weeks ago, Northern Ireland was a serious contender. Being only 1 hour away by plane from London meant we could fly on Friday evening after work, and still enjoy an evening in our destination. Apart from being so close...
Manarola, Cinque Terre
On our tour around Italy last month, we spent two days in the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage site of Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre is situated in Liguria, a region in the north west of Italy. The Cinque Terre national park consists of 5 beautiful terraced villages right by the coastline and the surrounding...
Lisbon city view of castle
I must admit, I underestimated the beauty of the Portuguese city, having always dismissed Lisbon as a potential city trip destination until recently. We decided to head to Lisbon at the end of Spring for 4 days. Unfortunately, we just hit a bit of a cold front, giving the impression...

Nearly every day we were on the move, making the visit incredibly interesting and varied, but oh so tiring. Up until Rome, we had...
Hotel Barcelona Princess Rooftop Pool
Barcelona is quite a sizeable city, with plenty of hotels to choose from. The city measures 102.15 km2 and has over 2500 hotels, making it a little tricky to find a good hotel. On my 5 day trip to Barcelona we stayed at Hotel Barcelona Princess, a 4 star hotel near the Forum, Congress...
I wasn’t planning to visit the Real Food Market today, but I’m happy fate brought me to the Waterloo area (A bit of an embarrassing tale, which I won’t be disclosing here). The Real Food Market is a small but cozy market near the Southbank and is open from...
Amsterdam gracht at sunset
Winter 2013. I visited Amsterdam for 3 days between Christmas and New Year. Even though the weather wasn't great, freezing cold, greyish with plenty of rain on the first day, I managed to see and capture as much as I could of the capital of the Netherlands. Amsterdam is well...
