Copenhagen has been on my city break list for a while now – mainly to add a photograph of the beautiful buildings down the well-known Danish harbour Nyhavn to my collection (and to my Instagram, obvs). With the April-May time being bank holidays galore, I thought this would be the perfect time to just book a flight and go. So we did! After grabbing one of those huge maps (yeah the…

Five years ago, the word ‘Airbnb’ meant nothing to me – and I’m sure you could probably say the same. I know what a bnb is – obviously – but Airbnb? Nah sorry mate. Stumped. But fast forward to today, and every holiday I’ve been on since 2015 I’ve used Airbnb (except skiing) – and I’d even go as far to say I’d be happy never to go back to…

Stepping off the plane onto that sweet Croatian soil after months of excitement for our post-graduation trip, we were greeted with thick cloud and a mild smell of rain. This certainly wasn’t what I’d pictured for my summer jaunt along the Dalmatian coast… I grabbed my hand luggage from the overhead and pondered the prospect of a rainy few days in Dubrovnik. Our first encounter of Dubrovnik was, luckily, not…

I recently got back from my first ever skiing holiday, and I have to say, I think I’m hooked. Blue skies, perfect snow, and amazing views, it really was a week to remember. I also didn’t resemble Bambi on ice, huzzahhhhh. Having no previous skiing experience, it’s safe to say I was a liiittle apprehensive about it. I mean, I was excited but I mean how excited can you be…

As the February wind and rain batters my bedroom window, I find myself more and more thinking back to last summer when Dom and I travelled Croatia for three weeks (probs the best three weeks of my life). One of the places we visited was arguably Croatia’s most luxurious and sought-after island – Hvar. Known as the Queen of the Dalmatian Islands, Hvar boasts white beaches, clear blue waters, perfect…

If it isn’t already, winter soon will be knocking at our lil doors. And apart from cosy snuggled nights in, hot mulled wine and the countdown to Christmas, it’s the perfect time to whisk yourself away for a few days for a lil winter break. It’s been a long and stressful year and you completely deserve a few days off before/after you stuff yourself silly with turkey and stuffing right?!…

Budapest. A city which isn’t as popular with travellers as Barcelona or Amsterdam, perhaps because it’s in eastern Europe, and I think quite a few people still have a reservation or two about what to expect from eastern European countries (I’m not a historian so don’t quote me on that). I was looking for somewhere me and Dom could go for a long weekend to celebrate our two year anniversary.…

After spending our days in Budapest wandering around the city, exploring little hidden streets and seeing where the day took us, come dusk there was nothing I fancied more than….(if you know me you will know the end to this sentence)… Yep, a nice cold cider. Or ‘almabor’ as they say in Hungary. Doesn’t have the same ring to it does it? I was sure that like any other capital…

I’m not sure why I decided to write this before dinner because thinking about Budapest brunching is making me really hungry for bread and other good stuff. I’ve just got back from a five day trip to Budapest; a busy city full beautiful architecture, eccentric bars (some of them were just downright weird, and I’ll be uploading a post about them soon), and, of course, amazing food. There’s no better…
