The following morning, I’d never been more grateful to have the heated seat the lady at Avis gave use with our 4×4! The temperatures had plummeted overnight and, hopping back into the car, I can’t tell you how nice it was to not be sitting in freezing leather seats as we made our way up towards … Continue Reading

Neuschwanstein castle is arguably the most famous and definitely one of the most impressive of all the castles in Germany and our trip to Bavaria just wouldn’t be complete without visiting. The first thing I wanted to do when we arrived there was find the best view point to take it all in but here’s … Continue Reading

There’s a whole heap of things to do in Maui, with everything from hiking trails, gorgeous drives, stunning beaches and plenty of good food! It’s one of those islands that seems to just fit around your own … Continue Reading

Back when we were students in St Andrews, there were plans to knock down the building at the waterfront in Dundee and replace them with a V&A Dundee. I don’t pay much attention to things like this but Lloyd does and as soon as we decided to head up to Scotland, this was one place … Continue Reading

Once upon a time, we used to live in Scotland (back when we were students up in St Andrews and after that working in Edinburgh) and one thing I really wished we’d done more of back then was to explore more of Scotland. It’s funny but even living in Edinburgh (which is one of the … Continue Reading

It might sound cheesy, but I have a very deep and real appreciation for London at Christmas. The winter chill, lashings of mulled wine (at the city’s markets) and, of course, the London Christmas markets that are dotted all around. It doesn’t matter if you’re staying central or venturing to some of the other neighbourhoods, there’s … Continue Reading

Hands-down, London is one of our favourite cities in all the world… not least because it is home! Now, in my opinion, one of the best things about our city is the amount of history hiding around every corner. The same goes for palaces in London – there’s just so many to explore. Obviously, if it’s your … Continue Reading

On our final day in the South of France, we made our way over from Millau to Rodez, stopping off only briefly to check out the action of the Tour de France going through Millau. Our first stop in Millau was the Soulages museum, home to many great pieces of work by renowned artist Pierre … Continue Reading

This is going to be a pretty brief post, in large part because you can’t really take photos inside so there’s not much I can show you from Linderhof Palace. What I will say though is that it is absolutely worth a visit as this is the one palace that King Ludwig II got to … Continue Reading

The United States has it’s fair share of cities to visit… in fact, there are hundreds of them! That in itself is mind-boggling, especially when you’re trying to plan a trip to the most fun cities in the US to visit. It can be pretty tough to sort through the best cities that you’ll love, … Continue Reading

Italy is one of those countries that you can never really say you’ve finished seeing. After all, It’s so diverse! From the different foodie delights (I’m naming you, gelato), beautiful cities like Rome, to the ever impressive spots in Cinque Terre – there’s just so much to see. That being said, it can sometimes be easy … Continue Reading

Hungary is a beautiful country to visit! Perched on the easterly fringes of Europe, it’s one of those countries that has a surprising mix of places to explore. Now, when you think of cities in Hungary, It’s likely that Budapest will pop straight into your head? This in itself isn’t a bad thing (after all, … Continue Reading

This day in Bavaria was all about nature and although we’d started off the trip looking to see amazing palaces and castles (of which there are some pretty spectacular hidden gems here), taking a moment to appreciate Germany’s stunning countryside was just such an amazing way to spend a day! After leaving Walchensee, we headed … Continue Reading

After a brilliant day exploring the beauty that is Montpellier, we decided to head out of the city to go explore other parts of France’s beautiful Occitanie region. About an hour from Montpellier is the town of Millau, home to the tallest bridge in the world – amongst many other things of course! There’s a … Continue Reading
