Yup, we’re in the midst of winter… frosty mornings, chilly winds and flurries of snow! However much you love winter, it can be a testing season, especially as the longer nights take hold. I’m all about embracing winter, in fact, the thought of a log cabin, roaring fire and plenty of snow is a total … Continue Reading

Norway’s beautiful fjords are the things of legends! They, are reason in themselves alone, to visit this amazing country yet this being said, Norway is about so much more than its stunning fjords. There’s so much history, culture and a whole range of other idyllic natural sights worth seeing in Norway and one of the best … Continue Reading

Norway is an incredibly vast country and somewhere that should be on every travellers radar to visit. It’s not just that the scenery is incredible, or that the whole country offers such amazing opportunities to explore its natural beauty but also because of its towns and people who are so warm and friendly… …I’m not … Continue Reading

Suffice it to … Continue Reading

The beauty of Norway is something that always captures my attention  – the stunning fjords, dramatic coastline and beautiful towns make this a country that truly deserves the hype.
