The Brazilian BBQ experience in Foz do Iguacu, Brazil

Have you ever been to a restaurant and eaten a meal, that you were not sure what you were actually eating? This doesn’t often happen does it? In most places, you’ll get a menu, choose something that sounds nice, and it’ll be served to you. When travelling in countries were English is not the primary language, this can be a little challenging. In the...

Exploring the street art of Vila Madalena, Sรฃo Paulo

The hipster movement is literally taking over the World. It is a contemporary subculture that is continually evolving. It may be slightly different in various parts of the World, but is generally associated with the arty, and trendy types. If you live in London, Shoreditch is were you’ll gravitate to as a hipster, and for New York, it is all about Williamsburg...

Walking the largest city in South America: Sao Paulo Free Walking Tour

When you think about large cities, places like New York, or London will often come to mind. However, these are not the most populated cities in the World (though they nearly are in their respective continents). When planning my trip to Brazil, a lot of people warned me away from Sao Paulo. ‘It is a bit of a beast’ they said. ‘Full of skyscrapers and...

Get out of London: 5 trips away from the Capital

Let me start off by saying that I love London. It is diverse, and vibrant and has plenty toย see, great places to eat and stay. However, there are times when I question myself, when I’ve wandered into the capital, why I am there – when I am being trodden on by several tourists, who are shoving their selfie sticks in my face, or just being trampled upon by...

Pentahotel Derby: Gateway to the Peak District

When choosing a hotel to stay in as a base to explore the Peak District, I wanted something that would be be central enough, and allow flexibilty of seeing a different city, and not be a horrendous drive away from my current location in the South East of England. My trip to the Peak Districtย was planned as a mini getaway for the weekend, giving me the chance to catch...

A peek inside the devils arse at Peak Cavern, Derbyshire

Before you question whether I am being crude, or have been to the seventh circle of hell. I am not, and have not. Instead, I thought I’d enlighten you on my venture of exploring the largest cave entrance in the British Isles, which happens to be known as the Devils Arse (charming eh!), which is situated in the middle of the peak district in England...

Five Cool Sights to Check Out When Backpacking in Munich

Munich is the capital city and largest city in Bavaria and is world famous for many different things. Tourism is huge here too of course and the city makes a good hub when inter-railing through Europe. Connecting to bordering Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Austria can all be done from trains via Munich. The city has a good local bus network, efficient...

Affordable snowboarding at Borovets, Bulgaira

A ski holiday can be a costly affair – not only can flights and transfers be expensive, you’ve got accommodation, all your gear and lift passes to sort out. So you wouldn’t blame me for dismissing it as a European getaway, in favour of warmer climates. Added to this, I used to believe that skiing and snowboarding were only for the elite, and those a...

Sightseeing Sofia, Bulgaria with the Free Sofia tour

Sofia is not somewhere that automatically springs to mind, when thinking about a city break. However, it was my destination of choice following my few days in the Bulgarian mountains, where I spent my time snowboarding falling over! As I only had a short time staying in the city, I was reccommended and took up the offer of doing a free city tour, by my hotel; the...

Staying at the Park Inn by Radisson, Sofia, Bulgaria

Bulgaria isn’t a country often sought out as a city break location, or indeed one for solo travellers. However, Sofia the Capital has a lot to offer, and it is slowly changing, and waiting with open arms to welcome travellers. Although I stayed just one day in Sofia (following my trip up the mountains to snowboard), it gave me a good insight into the city...
