India Itinerary for a Month: Rajasthan and Uttarakhand

India

So, it’s finally time for me to get round to writing about my trip to India this past Christmas. It’s only been six months, after all. I always prefer to write about a place while the memories are fresh in my mind, whilst I’m on the road or when I’ve just returned and although I do often procrastinate from this plan and take a while to actually publish my posts, there’s something more to what made me so delayed in…

Barcelona Itinerary: Your Perfect Weekend Trip

Spain

Encompassed in history, culture and crazy architecture, Barcelona is the perfect destination for a weekend city break. There’s certainly enough to do to enchant you for a weekend on this Barcelona itinerary, before you head out of the city’s busy crowds to Spain’s nearby more relaxed beach scene of Costa Brava. Barcelona is the capital of the autonomous community of Catalonia, which is a region in Spain that has a separate culture and language to the rest of the country. Therefore, be…

Hvar Island, Croatia: The Perfect Two Day Itinerary

Croatia

For your first day on Hvar Island, check out my previous post where I suggest walking around the town of Stari Grad, including climbing up Glavica Hill to thoroughly explore one of the oldest towns in Europe before relaxing on a beach of your choice (we stayed on a beautiful pebbly pay in walking distance from the centre of town). On our second day I was still feeling pretty ill and the morning started off pretty miserably as after a…

Stari Grad, Hvar: Exploring the Oldest Town in Europe

Croatia

The next morning I woke up in Hvar to find that my early night had had no beneficial effects on my brewing cold. I felt goddamn awful. My throat was inflamed, my glands were swollen, my nose blocked and my whole head felt like it was full of wool. It was really the opposite of how you’d want to feel on your first day exploring a new place. I crawled from the tent into the outside world fairly begrudgingly. There have…

Underrated London: North, East, South West.

England london

My last post focused on all places that are within walking distance of each other, however there’s more to London than those famous landmarks in the centre and once you’ve seen them, there’s way more to explore further out. This post will be split into four sections: North, East, South and West and I’ll share a couple of things from each zone. If you’re spending quite a long time in the big city, I’d recommend spending a day in each…

Whistle-Stop Walking Tour of London (And where to pee for free!)

England london

Although I’ve dedicated a large part of my blog to those beautiful places in the UK outside London that are often unfairly neglected and overlooked by tourists and the media, like the Yorkshire Dales, Newcastle, Northumberland and North Wales, there is a reason why the Big City is so popular. Along with New York and Paris, London is one of the most iconic cities in the world. The English capital is concentrated with gorgeous architecture and shrouded in fascinating history. After living…

Iceland: A Winter Weekend Trip to the Land of Ice and Fire

Iceland

In early February this year, me and my boyfriend Josh had a winter weekend trip to Reykjavik, Iceland. He bought the tickets for my birthday (boyfriend points for him) after watching me coo over pictures of Icelandic landscapes online for months. We flew to Iceland from London Gatwick on the 4th February after spending a few days preparing for the perilous cold temperatures we knew to expect. I bought a fresh new pair of hiking boots, thermal socks, a thermal fleece and…
