Things to do in Lyon, France: Ultimate guide to Lyon

france

Despite being the third-largest city in France, Lyon doesn’t usually feature on the majority of France travel itineraries. It is often overlooked in favour of the idyllic towns in the Alsace region, such as Strasbourg and Colmar, or the expensive, glitzy resorts of Cannes and St. Tropéz along the Côte d’Azur.  In fact, when I was accepted to study at Jean Moulin Université III in Lyon, I didn’t know a single thing about the city that would be my new…

Guide to Warsaw: Polish City Breaks This is the first instalment of a three-part guide to Poland. First and foremost is my guide to Warsaw, the capital of Poland. In April 2017 I went to Poland for the first time and fell in love with it’s character, architecture and shockingly cheap prices.

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…

Montserrat Tour from Barcelona: Ultimate guide to a Montserrat Day Trip

Spain

I never really wanted to visit Barcelona. I’ve just never had an interest in it as a destination. There’s no specific reason why, it just didn’t excite or inspire me. That was until I found out about Montserrat National Park. It’s not an exactly mainstream destination, but there was a period when every time I looked at my Instagram feed, a picture of Montserrat in Barcelona would stop me mid-scroll. The unique landscape, the craziness of the monastery cozied up…

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…

Improvised Travel: A Blessing or a Curse?

Croatia

As we left so early from Krka, by the time we arrived back in the bus station in Split, it was only about midday. We had the whole day, and nearly two weeks in front of us but still no concrete plans. The temperature had soared that day, my back was sweating under the immense weight of my backpack and I was starting to worry that we had no flights booked home, or any idea where we would even be…
