Alternative Cities to Visit in Europe

By |January 12th, 2015|Croatia, France, Scotland, Spain, Travel Tales|2 Comments

You know that feeling when you want to take a trip but aren’t sure where to go?

Sure, you could hit up some of Europe’s big-name cities like Paris, Rome, Barcelona or Madrid but, maybe you’ve already been there, or you just don’t feel like going somewhere that feels as though everyone visits. Or perhaps it’s that the inflated prices of the popular […]

My 2013 Travel Adventures

By |December 22nd, 2013|China, Croatia, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Montenegro, Scotland, Singapore, Travel Tales, Vietnam|10 Comments

2013 has been a pretty big travel year for me. I’ve visited fourteen different countries including six brand new ones taking my total number of countries to 33. Not bad!
I began the year watching fireworks light up the sky over Edinburgh Castle surrounded by other lovely travel bloggers. We were at the beginning of a whirlwind trip around Scotland seeing all that my beloved country has to offer. Everyone adored their time in Scotland and I was like a proud mother hen showing off the best parts of my country to everyone. Shockingly for Scotland the weather even behaved and we had warm temperatures, no snow and very little rain. Thanks, Mother Nature!

It was exhausting, exhilarating, liberating and amazing all at the same time. Since it’s been such a whirlwind and I’m still recovering and getting my head around it all, here’s a little introduction to my week in pictures…

The Beauty of Dubrovnik

By |February 28th, 2013|Croatia|5 Comments

Dubrovnik was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979 because of the stone protective walls which stretch for almost two kilometres around the city. I’ve walked on the walls twice and the views from the top are simply stunning and are certainly well worth the climb. I’ll warn you now, though, it can be quite slippery underfoot so make sure you have sensible footwear on if you plan to do this – trust me, I know this from experience. Walking in a pair of incredibly pretty, but highly impractical sandals is best avoided lest you end up with a sore bum and even sorer sense of pride!

Stunned by Split

By |June 25th, 2012|Croatia|4 Comments

Of all the ports of call on my cruise the Croatian city of Split was the one I was most surprised by. From the moment I stepped onto dry land I was absolutely blown away by how beautiful the city is. I entered the heart of the city inside the protective walls via a long tunnel that was a blissfully cool […]
