Disclosure: Thank you to Discover Greece and Celestyal Cruises for taking me on this incredible journey of Greece - even though this was a partnership, all opinions are (as always) my own. Thank you to Maria of Samos Experience for giving us an amazing tour of Samos island!Samos Island, a Greek island in the eastern Aegean Sea, is the paradise that you have probably never heard of. From beaches that could convince you that you're in the Caribbean to locals who go out of their way to welcome you to their beautiful island. Delicious food and wine await you here! When I saw that Samos was on our itinerary with Celestyal Cruises' Idyllic Aegean 7-day cruise, I had no idea what to expect. The only thing I knew about Samos was that there was a major refugee camp on the island since a friend of mine had volunteered there a few months ago.When we disembarked in Samos, I was in awe. The more I saw of the island, the more I fell in love.
One of my ‘must do’ activities in a new place (new city, new country, wherever!) is to find the best coffee spots. I had two and a half days in the city to find the best coffee in Palma de Mallorca and, of course, I accepted this challenge. I’m currently writing this while on my flight home since I’ve now had so much coffee today that I’m still buzzing…This list is a mix of online research (thank you Culture Trip and Foursquare for always being there for my coffee needs), personal recommendations from friends and followers and some that I simply stumbled upon on my wanderings. Palma de Mallorca is a haven for independent coffee spots (their ‘local chain’ is called Cappuccino, and is actually also pretty good but also more expensive) – a fun fact is that Mallorca actually only got their first Starbucks in 2017! This possibly explains how many independent cafes there are, and I’m definitely not complaining. So in no particular order…
Budapest is a great city. Even better for those who don't like the "limits" of just one destination - it's a great place to start an Interrail trip. I travelled through Budapest when I interrailed around Europe two years ago and really enjoyed the city. From my current home in La Ceiba, Honduras, I'll be giving advice on how to do Budapest on a budget!
The resounding question that I've been asked when I said I had just got back from Sweden was, "oh, did you go to Stockholm?"No! (Although I have been to Stockholm before.) There is more to Sweden than just Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden's second-largest city, is definitely a place that deserves more visitors!Gothenburg, or Göteborg (yur-te-borry) in Swedish, is a city of delicious food, buzzing café culture and a love of microbreweries and craft beer. While not as "glamorous" as it's big sister Stockholm, the industrial port city of Gothenburg is definitely a place that a visitor to Sweden shouldn't miss.

This Prague itinerary has everything you should do on your first visit to the city.

2017 has been a pretty crazy year in terms of travel and blogging. This year, my blog started to pick up, my Instagram hit 100k followers (woohoo!) and I went on my first press trip. Although not quite as catchy as my 2016 (21 countries in my 21st year), 2017 was definitely more epic and probably also more stressful!Here goes a round up of a crazy year...
