Well, I'm exhausted. In the last 24 hours I have travelled from Paderborn, through Bielefeld, Hanover and Berlin, had a two-hour stopover in Berlin, through Dresden and Prague and now I'm waiting in Vienna Hauptbahnhof for a train to finally
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!
Now I will begin this post by saying this is by no means an exhaustive list. Berlin is an incredible mixing pot of amazing coffee and great beer from all around the world, plus a foodie's paradise. Hopefully this article will help you experience some of the best coffee and beer in Berlin!
My first trip to Paris resulted in me really hating the city, so when my best friend asked if I wanted to join her for a long weekend in La Ville Lumière... I wasn't totally sure. However, she's awesome (for real) and flights weren't too expensive so I decided I would go.And you know what?I don't regret it ONE bit! I think it ended up being one of my best trips that year and we had an amazing time, plus we pretty did our own Instagram-inspired tour of the city. So, what are the most beautiful places to visit in Paris? Here are my top picks for the most awesome photo opportunities in the city!
Switzerland is one of my favourite countries on Earth. I mean, it's just ridiculously beautiful - how could you not love it?! I have put off going back there for a while because it's expensive, and I wanted to save up a little so I didn't have to do the 'budget' experience (also because I wanted to eat aaaaaall the food).However, renting a car and doing a Switzerland road trip doesn't need to cost an arm and a leg (or any other limbs) - so, grab some friends, rent a car and do one of the most epic road trips in Europe (and of your life)!
Winter is coming. It’s true, whether you like the cold weather or not! Winter is a great time of year for travel since you have so many options, including heading to warmer climates (a favourite of mine), exploring Christmas markets, doing winter sports or experiencing the sheer beauty of winter.Some of my favourite travel bloggers have put forward their top choices for winter destinations this year… where will you choose to go?
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…
Cascais is a haven for seafood lovers and Portugal, in general, is perfect for anyone who likes their pastries or coffee. After our trip to Cascais last month, I rounded up the best eating spots we visited so you will know all the best spots in the city. Without further ado, here is my round-up of where to eat in Cascais.Disclaimer: I was invited to Cascais on a paid partnership with Visit Cascais. All opinions are, as always, my own.
