It’s All Greek To Me

Athens, Greece. After a 3 and a half hour flight we found ourselves in this wonderful city. We had been given warning to expect dirty and polluted streets but were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness and greenery all around. We did find some rather littered areas when you get very central but not much worse…

Predjama Castle

Ljubljana & Piran, Slovenia and finishing with a brief stop over in Trieste, Italy were our planned destinations on the bank holiday weekend road trip. Driving was made very enjoyable through this very scenic part of Europe and each place we stopped had a character of it’s own.  

Island of Limestone

Matla, A beautiful island in the south of Europe, an abundance of history and full of character. With the turquoise blue seas, sunny skies and pretty much everything made from limestone, I had a lot of fun taking photos in Malta.    

Crossing the Baltic Sea

Helsinki, Finland and Tallinn, Estonia. We managed to fit in not only two cities, but two countries in a short weekend trip! When in Helsinki it is definitely worth considering a day trip, taking the short 2 hour ferry across the Baltic sea for a picturesque stroll around the old town of Tallinn. It was…

The Portuguese Ribeira

Porto, Portugal. See my best photography from this charming city.     Well I was told by my brother I could definitely not come to Porto without seeing the famous wine cellars and tasting some Port. It was the very last thing we did on our three day visit but we just about managed to…

A Weekend in Valencia

Valencia, Spain. We kicked off the new year with a surprisingly warm start, arriving here greeted with 20 degrees and nothing but sunny skies. Located on the east coast of the country with a modest flight time of 2 hours from London, it’s often overlooked but is in fact the third largest and the oldest…

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.
