Camping in the Desert

Jordan. We had a brief stop over in the capital city Amman but at the first opportunity, hit the road to see the real reasons you would come to Jordan, camping under the stars in the Wadi Rum desert, floating in the dead sea and the spectacular city of Petra.

High Tatras

Bratislava, Slovakia. Knowing this is a very small European capital city and not much time is needed to see “everything”, we wasted no time, got up uncomfortably early, met up with some friends and jumped straight into our rental car and undertook the long 3 and a half hour scenic drive to the High Tatras in Northern Slovakia. Being over 30 degrees in the city it…

Transylvania to Bucharest

Bucharest, Romania. A quick overnight in the airport hotel and come morning we were once again at the Avis desk picking up our rental car for another weekend road trip. By the way if I haven’t mentioned how valuable driving abroad is when you’re short on time let this be the time! Although it can be a daunting prospect for people who haven’t done it before,…

On Top of Etna

Sicily, Italy. Another long weekend road trip around Europe and in this beautiful part of the world, we were able to cram in a multitude of different towns along the way each with their own unique charm. We flew into Catania airport on the eastern side of the island and picked up our set of wheels, we headed north to spend the day in the popular…

Sweet like Belgian Chocolate

Brussels & Antwerp, Belgium. Having been to Brussels before, once we arrived in the capital we decided to jump straight on a train to try out another Belgian city of interest, Antwerp and aren’t we glad we did! Greeted by the stunning train station, we knew straight away it was the right decision and things just got better. Through the old narrow streets with the Cathedral…

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 than we’ve seen elsewhere. According to a Greek friend however, there…

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.  

You Better Belize It

Belize, Central America. We started our journey by renting a big American 4×4 pick up truck, which at first did not seem appealing but after the first turning off the main highway it turned out to be a god send! The roads in Belize, I’m not sure can be described as roads, more like clearings that people struggle to drive through. The joke of choice when…

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 bitterly cold when we went in early February but the benefit…

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 squeeze it in before rushing off to the airport and I’m…

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 city in Spain. Especially at this time of year the number…
