India itinerary 1 month: Uttarakhand and Rajasthan itinerary

India

India is an extremely vast country. In size, it’s over 3 MILLION km squared, which makes it 13 times bigger than the UK. Yet, India is also enormously varied from place to place. From the mountainous region of Kashmir and the smoggy intensity of Delhi to the blissful beaches of Goa and the tranquil backwaters of Kerala, almost every state in India is infinitely different to the next. I truly believe you could explore India for several lifetimes and still…

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…

24 hours in Split, Croatia: Start of my Summer Adventure

Croatia

It had been nearly eight weeks since I’d seen my boyfriend, Josh and arriving in Split airport, where we’d meet again I have to admit I was a little nervous. It had been the longest time that we’d ever been apart and after so much time of him only existing in memories and online, I was starting to forget that he was a real human being and more than just pixels on my screen. I kept imagining the moment that…

Normandy: France’s Island Castles and Crazy Circuses

france

For three weeks in June and July I’m doing an intensive summer course in the French language in the town of Le Mans in Northern France. About 15 other people from the same university as me are also doing the course, but I’ve never met any of them so feeling pretty nervous about this- first time travelling alone and living alone, and all in France! I haven’t been updating as much as I thought I would, it’s been a pretty…

Climbing Mount. Snowdon in Northern Wales

Outside London Wales

On our third day in Snowdonia we finally got to climb Mt. Snowdon, the tallest mountain in Wales at 1,085 m and one of the National Three Peaks Challenge. We made sure that we woke up bright and early, went into the village for a big breakfast at Café Glandwr. I had a bowl of porridge with honey and fresh fruit while Josh had a full Welsh breakfast and together we shared a pot of tea. The breakfast was just what we…

Snowdonia National Park: Exploring the Fairylands

Outside London Wales

On our first full day in Snowdonia, we slept in a little longer than we wanted so instead of climbing Mount Snowdon, like the original plan, we decided to explore the immediate surrounding area a little more instead. After eating our breakfast of delicious pastries that we ordered the previous night from the campsite office, we set off into the village to explore. The weather was quite overcast and foggy, however it was lovely seeing the mountains shrouded in mist,…

North Wales Natural Beauty: Snowdonia National Park

Outside London Wales

For my boyfriend’s birthday I bought us both train tickets to Snowdonia National Park in North Wales to camp for 3 nights. After the lessons learnt in our failed wild camping experience in Northumberland, we booked a spot in a campsite in the centre of the National Park, close to Mount Snowdon. We left our homes in Leeds bright and early for our 6:30am train on the 6th June ready for a day full of travelling to our campsite and…

Geordie-Land!: Visiting the City of Newcastle-upon-Tyne

England Outside London

If you’re a fan of London, definitely give Newcastle a visit whilst you’re in England- it has the same bustling nightlife, similar cultural attractions and an equally interesting history. However, unlike London Newcastle is less victim to the formidable crowds and is also a short train ride away from the coast, something hard to find in the capital. I’ll cover the beauties of the Northumberland coast in my upcoming posts but for now, here’s what to check out in the…
