Where I stayed in Prague: Park Inn Hotel

Prague, the capital of Czech Republic is a popular weekend city break, and after spending 5 days there myself, I can see why. It’s historic old town square, delightfully colourful buildings, friendly locals and tasty food, make it a loveable city. Many people will flock to Prague for the obligatory hen/stag weekend, and so as well as the colourful buildings...

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. What we didn’t get much of an insight into was who Aldof Hilter was as a person, his background, why he did what he did, and where he did it...

Staying in the Bavarian Hills at the Best Western Plus, Rehlegg Hotel

I opened the curtains, and stepped out onto the balcony. I stopped, and observed. I smelt the countryside air, listened to the birds sing, and just marvelled at the mountains. Was I dreaming? No, but I felt like I could be; having been in the busy city of Munich, just one day previously. The Best Western Plus, Rehlegg Hotel, was a 2 night stay, in my 6 day trip in...

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...

What to do for a weekend in Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Netherlands is one of most liberal and socially progressive countries in the World; 4th after New Zealand, Switzerland and Iceland. Its liberal laws are often a source of delight for many travellers to the country; hey you can get stoned, and the police won’t care. Before I travelled to the Netherlands, a lot of my friends shared their wild stories of times...

Three architectural gems in Rotterdam, Netherlands

“This could be Rotterdam or anywhere Liverpool or Rome ‘Cause Rotterdam is anywhere Anywhere alone.” There are never truer lyrics than these ones, by The Beautiful South, as I arrived into Rotterdam in the evening, leaving the very next morning. That of course was not the plan (as it never is with my travels). The plan was to have most of an...

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 to 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 District was planned as a mini getaway for the weekend, giving me the chance to catch...
