City of Music

Vienna, Austria. Previously home to Mozart, Beethoven and more famous composers than any other city in the world, Vienna is packed full of history. Visiting on my 27th birthday, I enjoyed cake in the prestigious Café Central, ice skating outside the impressive city hall and exploring the magnificent interiors of numerous museums and churches like…

Czech Yourself

Prague, Czech Republic. A cultural centre of Europe, this capital city has a rich history. Not having been rebuilt like most European capital cities during the 18th or 19th centuries, the diverse mix of architectural styles remains in tact and is the largest urban area on the UNESCO world heritage list. We came here in…

Walking on a Glacier

Reykjavik, Iceland. If you’re looking for a budget friendly holiday, look elsewhere! I feel like the first thing I have to warn everyone about if planning a trip to Iceland is the extortionate prices! And I’m not exaggerating. Top of our itinerary was an early morning glacier walk on the east side of the island….

The Jurassic Coast

Dorset, England. Who knew that such a beautiful place existed right on our doorstep! A fairly short 3 hour drive from London and we hit the coast. If you live in the UK or even if you don’t, hiking up the cliffs of this dramatic coastline and then walking along the beach collecting ancient fossils,…

London to Edinburgh Cycle

Edinburgh, Scotland. After a realisation that we had been to so many different countries around the world but had hardly seen our own, we started putting plans together for another epic cycle! This time staying right here in the UK, starting in London, heading north through a variety of towns and cities and timed perfectly…

Eastern European Road Trip

Zagreb, Croatia was the start and end point for our road trip. We saved looking around the city to our return visit so picked the car straight up from the airport and hit the road. Our itinerary: Croatia: Zagreb -> Split -> Dubrovnik, then over to Kotor in Montenegro, up into Bosnia & Herzegovina: Mostar…

The City of Seven Hills

Lisbon, Portugal. One of the oldest European cities and famous for standing on seven hills (actually eight), the most striking thing about Lisbon is the steep and narrow cobbled streets in every direction. At the bottom of the hills there are layers of houses stacked up all around you, and at the top, fantastic views…

Driving in Tuscany

Tuscany, 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 our trip below.

Hitchhikers Guide to Finland

Finland. Starting in Helsinki we slowly made our way north using only the power of our thumbs! The trickiest part of our trip was getting away from the airport, surrounded by motorways we struggled to find a spot to actually start trying to hitch a ride. Getting people to stop while they are doing 70kmph…

Midnight Sun Marathon

Tromso & Olso, Norway. We visited Norway in peak summer to undertake Tromso’s Midnight Sun Marathon. The race starts at 9pm and unless you are a professional athlete or incredibly quick, you will still be running come midnight with the sun still shining. It’s the most northern official marathon and a great one to add…

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…
