If you've been following me on Instagram, then you've likely noticed that I'm spending a lot of time in Gibraltar. If you aren't (maybe you came here from Google or Pinterest), then you've been missing out on all the awesome things to do in Gibraltar that I've been posting about on my feed and showing on my stories. It's currently half true that I live in Gibraltar now - I spent the entirety of the last month there as well as a week in November and a week in December 2019.Spending so much time in Gibraltar has really enabled me to properly explore the territory, as well as venture further afield into Spain. Before I started dating my boyfriend (the reason I sorta/kinda live in Gibraltar now), I didn't know much about this British Overseas Territory at all - I'd never visited before and I didn't really know what the main sights were other than that big ass Rock everyone talks about.In this article, I'm going to cover the top ten most awesome things you can do in Gibraltar. It's a mix of sightseeing, cool things you can only do in Gibraltar and some food and drink recommendations. Keep an eye out for more articles on things to do in Gibraltar as well as Gibraltar itineraries in the near future!
Paris is, without a doubt, one of my favourite cities for Christmas decorations and Christmas lights. The ‘City of Light’ is a festive treat every single year with incredible decorations in many of the main areas of the city, as well as some of the biggest department stores like Galeries Lafayette. Christmas in Paris is definitely something to experience!There are also some smaller, less well-known spots dotted around the city that are worth a visit if you have the time. I’m not the most festive when it’s early December (I’m at least a mid-December person) but I was definitely feeling the Christmas spirit exploring these spots in Paris!
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!
Amsterdam is an incredible city that is always buzzing with people, events and, well, cannabis. While Amsterdam generally seems best known for its liberal views on prostitution and cannabis, there is so much more to the city than the Red Light District and the coffee shops!I recently made my fifth visit to Amsterdam, this time travelling with Eurostar from London and taking my dad with me! He hasn't been to Amsterdam in around 20+ years so we decided to do some of the more 'touristy' options and combine that with some of my favourite spots from past visits.So here is my Amsterdam itinerary with the top tourist spots that are actually worth visiting! This itinerary is designed for having one day in Amsterdam but can definitely be expanded if you are spending longer there. The main bulk of the article will take you through the main attractions and places you ought to visit and, at the end, I have created some sample itineraries with tips on getting from location to location.
Tulip mania is real - and here is where to find stunning tulip fields near Amsterdam! While there are no tulip fields in Amsterdam itself (the Bloemenmarkt is the best it's going to get), there are so many places nearby that offer an amazing tulip experience!After writing an entire article on tulip fields in the Netherlands, I realised that the section on Zuid-Holland was ridiculously long and could really do with its own article! Amsterdam is located in the south of the province of Noord-Holland and is therefore incredibly close to some of the biggest areas for tulip cultivation in both Noord-Holland and Zuid-Holland. I have highlighted the must visit areas in both Zuid-Holland and Noord-Holland that are around an hour away from Amsterdam - you definitely can't miss this during tulip season!
After my third visit to Amsterdam this January, I realised that I've never written any posts about the city! I still have so much more of the city to see (and always will!) but I have put together my list of the best photo spots in Amsterdam that I absolutely love.The capital of The Netherlands has always been known for its 'progressive' side - to the coffee shops where you can smoke a joint or eat a hash brownie or to its infamous Red Light District. The capital is also home to beautiful architecture, photogenic canals and lots of great coffee!Here are the best photo spots that you can't miss while in Amsterdam!
Where should you travel to in 2019? From emerging travel destinations to trending hotspots, here are the best places to travel in 2019! There are so many amazing places that deserve to be on this list so it was tough to cut it down to only this many.From Berlin, celebrating 30 years since the fall of the Berlin wall, to Kaikoura in New Zealand, which is now fully accessible again by road and rail after the destructive 2016 earthquake. Both Matera in Italy and Plovdiv in Bulgaria were named European Capital of Culture for 2019, so expect both destinations to be trending this coming year!Here are the top destinations you should explore in 2019:
Once Christmas is upon us most markets have closed already or are winding down to end before the new year. But - if you haven't had your fill yet (or don't have the opportunity to visit them until the new year) - some Christmas markets continue into January for your New Years visiting pleasure!If you're looking to adventure to some Christmas markets in January, then I have rounded up all of the festive fun still on offer into 2020.In this complete guide to Christmas markets open after Christmas (which seems like a strange idea but should definitely be more of a thing), you can find all your markets for enjoying festive cheer after the big day.
