Slow travel through Bavaria’s Berchtesgadener Land

When I look back to the past 10 years, I can easily tell that some of the best trips I ever had were the ones where I slowed down and just embraced the nature surrounding me. I realised recently that I want to go back to many of the places I have already visited for […]

Spending the spring bank holiday in Jersey – The Channel Islands

I always thought of Jersey to be that exotic island from the English Channel, charming and mysterious but very expensive. I have almost included it during my “Great European Road Trip” but the Interrail ticket wasn’t accepted on the ferry so I had to skip it back then. When I moved to the UK I […]

Seeing the world from the top of Puy de Dôme

I’m a sucker for a difficult hike and stunning, jaw-on-the-ground views. I recently completed seven days of a French-English language exchange in Vichy, France with a family of four, including two young children. Vichy itself is known for its natural springs that produce sparkling water, which the city uses in various candies, medicines and soaps. […]

Discover the non touristy Mallorca

I have only booked tickets to Mallorca because they were very cheap and because I was in desperate need for some warmth, sick of the grey skies and rain of the English winter. All I knew about the tiny island in the Mediterranean was that is a party destination for stags and hen-dos, from where […]

Have You Ever Fallen in Love With a Hotel? Hilton Hotel in Malta Review

Before I start telling you about my recent stay at the Hilton Hotel in Malta I have to admit that even though my last ten years of intense travel meant I stayed in lots of hotels, I never felt I´d fall in love with any of them. I was impressed, yes, but never like this. […]

A little French fishing village: Barfleur

During the August Bank Holiday I took advantage of the £24 return ticket from Brittany Ferries and finally boarded Barfleur, the daily ferry that connects my town with Cherbourg, in France. The ticket is valid for 29 hours on French land and because Cherbourg is pretty small and you can see it in one day, […]

Shoreditch Street Art Tour: A Visual Essay

I recently discovered Shoreditch and fell in love with it straight away. The atmosphere here is different than in the London you discover as a tourist. Shoreditch is a multicultural neighborhood with charismatic community cafes, food from all over the world (apparently on Brick Lane you can find the best curry in London), quirky markets […]

Copenhagen for under £50 (flights included)

So here I was, with a £10 return ticket for Copenhagen in my basket, thinking if I should click “buy” or not. It was the first time I would actually catch a Ryanair sale for the weekend, and I was kind of excited. So I said what the hell, and bought it. 24 hours in […]

London: Exploring Shoreditch on a Sunday

I’ve spent last weekend in London, meeting my friends Lakshmi and Bethan, for our mini Cuba reunion, sharing memories and discovering new places. Most of the people that go to London will limit themselves to see the City of London and Westminster, and maybe, if they have time, explore a little bit of Camden and […]
