Sunset in Seville

Seville, Spain. The capital of the Andalusia region and now has to be one of my favourite European cities I’ve visited so far. We did a weekend break here in November and were still able to wear T-shirts all day without getting cold. We started our first day with an early morning wake up call…

London to San Sebastian Cycle

San Sebastian, Spain, the final destination of our 583 mile cycle from London in 6 and a half days. It sounded like a great idea, in the planning stage we compared it with our previous cycle to Venice and were determined to make it an easier and more enjoyable ride. How could it not be,…

Bulgaria in Autumn

Sofia, Bulgaria. A less popular European capital among tourists, but after spending an excellent long weekend here, there is no good reason why. Cheap travel, food and admissions, 24 degrees in late October and beautiful scenery, what is not to like! We started out with a full day in the city, the stunning Alexander Nevsky…

In The Basque Country

Bilbao, Spain. Another great Spanish city on the northern coast of the country, mainly famous for the magnificent Guggenheim Museum, come here for an art filled weekend. See my photos from the trip below.    

Driving in Tuscany

The region of Tuscany in Italy was the main feature of our Italian road trip but we also explored the surrounding areas including the beautiful Cinque Terre, See my favourite photos of the trip below.      

Midnight Sun

  Tromso & Olso, Norway. We visited Norway in peak summer to undertake the midnight sun marathon. The race starts at 9pm and unless you are a professional athlete or a very good armature, you will still be running come midnight with the sun still shining. The most northern official marathon, this is a great…

Church of the Assumption

Lake Bled, Slovenia. With little else to do than hire a boat and row yourselves over to the only island in Slovenia where the Church of the Assumption sits, Lake Bled is a very nice place to visit for a day if you are passing through but I wouldn’t make it a destination in it’s…

City of Reflections

Venice, Italy. This was our final destination on our thirteen day cycle from London and what a great place to end it. We arrived in peak summer and although that meant lovely weather, it also meant a hell of a lot of people. The street sellers were out in force and the tourists flooded in…

Conquering the Alps

Thirteen days, 950ish miles and very sore bums. Two best friends and I completed our “Europa Challenge”, starting from where we live in Greenwich, London, down to Dover, ferry to Calais, through Eastern France, getting into Switzerland and the dreaded task of scaling the alps, down into beautiful Italy and across to Venice. This was…
