A view from Hilter’s hideout at Eagles Nest, Berchtesgaden, Germany

When we learnt about World War II and the schemes of Adolf Hilter; the picture that was painted was that of  a country taken over by a cruel dictator. A picture of concentration camps, families spilt up and radicalisation.

Caravan holidays are a British tradition and they’re something I think everyone should try at least once, no matter where you come from. So I thought I’d post up a...

My stay in Sunny Cornwall

Cornwall is a great place to visit, with the county at England’s South Western-most tip able to offer beautiful countryside, stunning beaches and great hospitality.

Sleeping in a Treehouse in Sussex, England

I’ve slept in some weird places while travelling – from the ropiest of hostels to a shipping container in Brazil, so the idea of sleeping up a tree didn’t faze me when I planned my trip to Sussex.   I’d seen an advert online for the Bensfield Treehouse and was immediately taken by it. It had been a while since I’d stayed somewhere luxurious so I decided to treat...
