A few hours before midnight, we got picked up from our hotel in Bangkok for a chance to experience the city in a way we wouldn’t have otherwise. Our day had started with one of the most popular spots in the city (the Grand Palace, Khlongs and Wat Arun – see it all here) but … Continue Reading

Bangkok was one city I’d wanted to visit for a long time. Ever since we went to Phuket and Phi Phi Island, Thailand very swiftly rose in the rankings of some of my favourite places to holiday in and thanks to that, the capital city has beckoned for quite some time now. Visiting Bangkok, we … Continue Reading

Leaving those adorable beavers behind, our next stop in Quebec was hard to pronounce (at least, in my experience 😄) Outaouais. More specifically, in Outaouais we stayed in Gatineau, a city right next to Canada’s capital city of Ottawa (like literally across the river – you can see the Parliament of Canada from here!) *Took … Continue Reading

 Rome is an absolute beauty of a city to visit, with the secret spots in Rome are actually a testament to that. It’s not very often when the hype around a city is actually matched with the reality of exploring the city and Rome is one of those few cities that doesn’t just match up … Continue Reading

Our next stop in Quebec involved us ‘getting lost’ in nature and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect for it. Given as it was in autumn, the weather has been a bit cool for the past few days but for some reason, on this one day, it just got ridiculously warm. Like, warm enough … Continue Reading

Leaving Burg Eltz, our final stop on this road trip before heading back to London was Aachen – a city near the border of the Netherlands and Belgium, making for the perfect stop before hopping aboard our DFDS ferry back to London (well actually, to Dover and then driving to London). We checked into the … Continue Reading

Situated south of Poland, Slovakia is a relatively small European country that packs a punch when it comes to beautiful places to see. It’s the perfect example of a small country that has a lot of incredible things to do and a heap of the best places in Slovakia that are dotted all across the … Continue Reading

The next day in the Moselle Valley was perhaps one that in retrospect I could have tweaked just a little bit. See this part of Germany is just so beautiful that I got a bit carried away and put too many things on my plans to see that day. My excitement got the better of … Continue Reading

The next part of our road trip was gonna be all about the Moselle Valley of Germany and given how beautiful the Rhine Valley was, this was one part of the trip I was really looking forward to. Leaving Assmannshausen, we made our way over to The Moselle Loop Viewpoint. Almost forgot – to set … Continue Reading

Perched on the Baltic Sea, Lativa is probably best known for its gorgeous capital, Riga. That being said, there are a shed load of incredible and best places in Latvia that are beyond the capital, too. Surrounded by; Russia, Lithuania, Estonia and Belarus, Lativa has a pretty incredible mix of influences and spots that are … Continue Reading

After two nights exploring Nurburgring and all the many adrenaline-fuelled fun to be had here, it was finally time to leave and head off on the next leg of our road trip – the bit filled with castles, vineyards and the cutest villages and towns. Our first stop (well, more of a pit-stop really) was … Continue Reading

Alberta is one incredible province to explore in Canada. It’s the kind of place that’s filled with places to see and a shed load of gorgeous spots, like; Banff, Jasper and cities like Edmonton and Calgary. Now, with all these incredible spots, it can be difficult to actually nail down a firm plan, especially when … Continue Reading

The next day was all about animals! We started off with a visit to the reindeers (organised by our hotels – you have to pay extra for some activities but typically, your hotels can help you organise them)… Reindeers serve all sorts of purposes and have done for the Sami people that live here for … Continue Reading

The next day, after a leisurely breakfast, we packed our suitcases up and said farewell to Muotka Wilderness Lodge. Fun as it was, we would be moving to a different hotel for the next couple of days here (which is something we’d arrange with Inghams Holiday prior to arriving so no surprises there). As we … Continue Reading
