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

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

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

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

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

The best way to make the most of winter is to fully embrace it. Like no staying indoors, waiting for it to pass but instead, grabbing those snow boots, warm coats and jackets and just heading out exploring. There’s just so much fun to be had in winter and it’s easily become one of my … Continue Reading

The next morning in Nurburgring, we woke up to what felt like torrential rain (at the time anyway) but none of that put a dampener on things – today we would finally get to go on the famous Nurburgring Formula 1 track at speeds of up to 270km/h (approximately around 168m/h) which would be a … Continue Reading

I love a good road trip! It’s just such a great way to explore a new destination. You get to see and explore so much more than you would normally and have the flexibility to make your trip whatever you want it to be. This is in large part what fuelled my excitement to go … Continue Reading

After marvelling at those beautiful autumn colours on the ground at Sacacomie, we decided to take in the beauty of autumn in Quebec from a novel perspective – from a helicopter. We’d booked in for just after noon which was plenty of time to get ready and head across to Pourvoirie du Lac Blanc as … Continue Reading

Leipzig is something of a ‘hidden gem’ in Germany. And yes, I use that term very loosely as Leipzig really isn’t hidden (far from) but it most certainly is a gem. It’s such an important city in Germany for reasons (one of which is really HUGE) that a lot of people the world over really … Continue Reading

The next morning, after a day exploring and subsequently falling in love with Quebec (as well as developing a bit of a crush for autumn with its beautiful fall foliage), we packed up and headed out to explore even more of the province of Quebec, beyond its beautiful capital city. Our main destination for the … Continue Reading

I’d never really been a fan of autumn. It just always reminded me that the glorious sunny days of summer were over and the cold, dark (and mostly wet) days of winter were on their way. I feel like the first half of autumn was spent missing summer and the latter half preparing for winter … Continue Reading
