I am one of those people that never learned to ski growing up. In fact, I didn’t really start skiing until around six years ago. That being said, skiing is now one of my favourite winter trips to go on… and, surprisingly (or perhaps not), not just because of the skiing itself. As they say, … Continue Reading

On our final morning in York, I got up bright and early – super eager to check out a couple of places I knew I just couldn’t leave the city without visiting! But not before a long and leisurely (not to mention, delicious) breakfast at Gray’s Court! The first spot I wanted to visit was … Continue Reading

After that amazing lunch, well-fed and tummies bulging to show for it, we traipsed through town toward York Minster – the utterly beautiful cathedral which we had made a mission to climb this very afternoon! In retrospect, it would probably have made sense to climb it the day before as the sun was shining but … Continue Reading

The next day in York was perhaps the fastest I’ve ever gotten ready (or at least pretty close). For starters, the breakfast at the Gray’s Court hotel is something worth arriving early and leaving enough time to enjoy (didn’t take any photos today but promise to take my camera with me tomorrow so I can … Continue Reading

Several months ago, after wanting to for years, we finally got to visit Yorkshire in the North of England and boy, was it worth the wait! It was just everything I’d hoped it would be and more. My only ‘regret’ (I use that word very VERY loosely – Yorkshire was just so amazing) was that … Continue Reading

The Netherlands might be a relatively small country but don’t let its size put you off. There are some pretty incredible and best places in the Netherlands that aren’t just the key sites like Amsterdam. Yes, Amsterdam is pretty cool (and totally worthy of its amazing reputation), but it is easy to overlook some of the … Continue Reading

The next morning, at the Hotel Kinparo in Shin-Yatsushiro, we woke up to yet another breakfast feast… …before heading down to the onsen to make the most of it that morning. Soon enough though it was time to hit the road and we had one spot, in particular, we wanted to visit before heading over … Continue Reading

South Korea is an incredible country to explore. Now, one of the things I love most about the country is how diverse it is. Not only does it have some incredible vistas and protected coastlines, but it also has some of the best places in South Korea that are dotted all across the country. That’s … Continue Reading

Greece is one of those countries that is totally diverse and one of the best places in Europe to visit. Plus, let’s be totally honest, the islands of Greece are just too good to miss. This is why I wanted to show you some of the very best things to do in Kos, a stunning … Continue Reading

The following morning in Kyushu, we got up bright and early, greeted by the sight of the Japanese countryside as we meandered through on the Seven Stars. Even as we got ready for breakfast, we knew we’d miss this train once we eventually got off it in Fukuoka. It was just everything we’d hoped it … Continue Reading

I’ll just come out and say it – it’s not very often I write a review post. Thing is, I find them incredibly dull to read and even more so to write. There are a few exceptions to this rule and that typically is when the ‘subject’ in question defies expectations. Like biting into a … Continue Reading

Austria is a beautiful country to explore and a place that’s so much more than its capital city, Vienna. Now, that’s not saying Vienna is bad (it’s actually amazing) but there really is a shed load of other beautiful and picturesque spots to see. That’s why I wanted to show you some of my very … Continue Reading

Rotterdam is easily the second largest city in the Netherlands and a perfect place to visit if you’re on a trip around the country. That being said, it’s the perfect kind of place for a long weekend break, too. As with most new cities you visit, it can be tricky to nail down some of … Continue Reading
