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…

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, this time we would have a shower and comfy bed every…

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 Cathedral sits right in the centre and is a sight to behold,…
