Drizzle in Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf, Germany. After an amazing 2018 of travelling we were keen to kick things off again straight away in the new year. The first weekend of January rolled in and without anything planned we got the travel itch and booked a last minute flight to the 7th largest city in Germany. This early in the…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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.  

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…

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…

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…
