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...

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...

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...

On the rooftop of Bath, England at Thermae Spa

There aren’t many places in the World, where you can sit on a rooftop, in a natural thermal pool, whilst peering over a historical city, and being just under 2 hours from London, it makes Bath Spa in England a real possibility for travellers to enjoy this experience. Recently I got to revisit the historical city of Bath, as a treat for my sisters birthday, and...

A winter weekend in Luxembourg

Unassuming, but incredibly charming, the tiny country of Luxembourg cuddles up beside Germany, France and Belgium, and the short flight from the UK, makes it the perfect spot for a weekend break. The influences from neighbouring countries make up its eclectic character, but there is a true local hospitality that shines through, and although you can cover most of the...

Staying at the Park Inn by Radisson, Luxembourg City

Luxembourg is a humble little country, nestled in between three countries – it has influences from Belgium, Germany and France, but the hospitality is truely Luxembourgish, which is what I recieved when I stayed at the Park Inn by Radisson in Luxembourg City. As a city, it is one of the smallest I have visited recently, but I found that there was so much to do...
