How To Road Trip Around Ireland

Ireland, the land of the leprechauns, the home of Guinness, and where you’ll find good craic. Not only is Ireland beautiful and with lots to see, if you look into renting a car in Ireland you could visit the best parts in one holiday and see it all. Just make sure you pack for all weathers as you could get a lot of rain or basking in the glorious sunshine. So...

Travelling in Turkey: Top 5 Experiences

Turkey is a passionate test for the avid backpacker and I am lucky to have visited it, Indeed the charming city of Istanbul is often dubbed as the city that spans two continents – you can even cross the Bosphorous by ferry from Europe to Asia. This may have been the only time in my life where I crossed a continent border by boat. Of course, you can easily book Turkey...

A summer getaway in Cornwall

Why would anyone ever want to have a holiday at home? That has always been my thought process. You can easily fly to Europe and spend around the same amount of money and possibly experience better weather. However, last year I found myself planning a little staycation in Cornwall. It was for my husbands birthday, and after seeing a view pictures online of the cornish...

Reasons to visit Malta and Gozo

Over the years, the islands of Malta and Gozo have increased in popularity as a holiday destination. After our first visit there in October I can see why. Malta is located in the centre of the Mediterranean. Nestled in-between Sicily and the North African coast.  It therefore enjoys quite favourable weather all year around. Add that to the stunning architecture...

A visit to the Gingerbread museum, Radovljica Slovenia

I have never heard of Radovljica in Slovenia, let alone could point it out on a map. However, when staying in the area of Jesenice, not far from the tourist destination of Bled in Slovenia, we took a wander there, as recommended by our Air BnB host. The town is compact and quaint, and has a whole host of events including a chocolate festival which happens each April...

Spotting the Flamingos at Salt Lake, Larnaca, Cyprus

Sometimes visiting a destination in the low season has its advantages. Namely these are less tourists and cheaper accommodation. Visiting Cyprus in the winter time also meant that we could have the opportunity of seeing some Flamingos. The gracious looking pink feathered birds grace the Salt Lake in Larnaca between November and March. Finding them can be somewhat...

Cave Greco: The blue lagoon of Cyprus

Having researched virtually nothing of Cyprus, which was booked as a wedding anniversary getaway where we hoped to chill in the sun, we found out that there were some stunning caves and a blue lagoon area at the Far Eastern tip of the island. Greco National Park covers an area of 385 hectares and is home to a variety of bird life, and forest area. It also has a...

A winter weekend in the French Riveria

When France is between 1 and 2 hours away by air, it is entirely possible to explore it over a weekend period. So with a cheap flight, we did just that. Although the weather wasn’t as hot as I was hoping for (16 degrees the high, and quite chilly after sunset), so if you are travelling in the winter months, pack a coat! Where we went Nice You’ll fly to...

For a great day out, look to the National Trust

I used to think that having a National Trust membership, meant that you were either old, boring or a family. However, I have held a National Trust membership for the past two years, and I can now revise my opinions. What is the National Trust and where is it? The National Trust is one of the UK’s largest charties, and was founded in 1895. Its purpose is to...

A spa with a view at QC Terme, Chamonix

Hands up who likes a spa? I know I do. Well how about a spa with a view? Before I go on, I’d like to clarify that I am not a seasoned spa goer. In fact, I can count on one hand the number of times I have been to a proper day spa. Whilst in Chamonix (France) recently, we stumbled across the QC Terme Spa, which is a newly opened Italian inspired spa. Chamonix is...
