One of my favourite cities in the UK (and one that I lived in for around five years) is the wonderful city of Bath. I have always been a city girl at heart and the thing I love about Bath is that it's all so walkable - when you are looking for a luxury hotel in Bath you want something that's easy access to the best attractions as well as peaceful at night. No 15 Great Pulteney is a wonderful boutique hotel in Bath located on the picturesque Great Pulteney Street.

Some apps are completely pointless and are just for wasting time, procrastinating, or those ones that look great and you download them and never ever use them. Other apps are amazing, take the hassle out of your travels and you'll swear by them to anyone who will listen.The second category of app is what I'm going to talk about today!I'm one of those people that has an app for everything. One of my friends will say, "oh I wish there was an app that did such-and-such" and I'm always the one to jump in and be all "there's one for that!" and tell them what it's called, how awesome it is, and how often I use it.So here is a list of my favourite go-to apps for travel. I'm not listing any for finding flights as that will be a separate article altogether!

Austria is well-known as a top destination for snow sports and is the winter sports capital of Europe, and is also famous for being a country where the hills are alive with The Sound of Music. If it's good enough for Julie Andrews, it's good enough for me. Austria is landlocked and bordered by Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Slovenia, Italy, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. With its prime location and incredible scenery, it is a perfect place to visit when doing a trip to Europe, especially if you're coming from Prague!Vienna is one of my favourite cities in Europe - don't miss out on it!

On my rather lengthy journey to Bucharest from Austria, I made a stop in Sofia.

Unfortunately, due to a delay in leaving Austria, I only got the opportunity to spend one night there which meant my entire stay in Sofia totalled less than 12 hours.However, from my (short) stay in the country, I know I want to go back.To read more about underrated destinations that should be on your bucket list, check out my round-up of top off-the-beaten-path destinations for 2016 and for 2017!

Good evening travellers! (Or good morning/afternoon/night, depending where you are in the world). I am currently writing this while sat in the bar/lounge area of my hostel in Bucharest and am enjoying being out of the cold for a few hours...On Wednesday, I left my home-of-the-last-five-months (Austria) and started my journey to Bucharest. I knew I had to be here by Sunday, but the question was where to visit on the way!As someone who often likes to check where they can fly to for low prices, I had often seen Skopje come up and had checked it out on Google. I loved it! The architecture, the history, and - the icing on the cake - a budget destination. Skopje was a little bit of a detour (and not really the most logical route) on the way to Bucharest, but I had made up my mind.To Skopje I would go!

Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la la la la la...And what better way to enjoy the season than by taking a break and visiting some of the best Christmas markets around Europe?
