Verona is easily one of the most under-rated cities in Italy! I’ve said it over and over again but I keep repeating it because it’s sooo true. We think of Italy and Rome, Florence, Amalfi Coast and so many other places just come to mind long before Verona but Verona deserves its spot at the forefront … Continue Reading

Prior to a few weeks ago, Fort Lauderdale wasn’t really a place I knew too much of. I think all I knew of it until we actually visited was that it was a place you caught the cruise ships from when you were in Florida. Seeing as I’ve never actually been on a cruise, I … Continue Reading

After our first trip to Vienna, I knew it was only a matter of time before we would return to the city. This was partly due to the fact that there was still so much left over to see and do in the city (especially after these recommendations) but this was mostly because we’d been … Continue Reading

Arriving in China, I can’t even begin to describe how tired and jet-lagged I was (totally my fault – KLM had so many movies I’d wanted to see that I spent most of my flight catching up on my movies). Funny thing about tiredness and jetlag – the excitement that comes from visiting a city … Continue Reading

Cologne is so synonymous with amazing Christmas markets (which makes winter a great time to visit) but there’s so much more to this city than it’s festive markets. We were due to fly in but thanks to last minute changes with the flights, we ended up taking the train instead. I actually recommend taking the … Continue Reading

Our last trip to Nimes was one of those perfect friend’s holidays. Nimes is an incredible Roman city in France and is actually one of the best preserved Roman cities in the world (its temple and amphitheatre are prime examples of this) – not quite what you’d expect from a French city right? We managed … Continue Reading

There’s so much more to Greece than just its amazing islands and recently we set out to see just that! See the thing is, in the past, despite the lure of more obvious places like Athens, we’d only ever been to the islands and the other that in mind, we headed off to explore the … Continue Reading

Rome is such an amazing city – this almost goes without saying! It’s such an overwhelming city – in a very good way, of course. There’s just so much to see and do here that it can sometimes feels a tad too much. For instance, when it comes to sights – a weekend is just … Continue Reading

Many many summers ago, I was sat at my desk on a trading floor in an Investment Bank in London, watching an intense game at Wimbledon out of the corner of my eye. It was a big match so most of the floor had stopped to watch the match (I was still fairly new to … Continue Reading

There are so many amazing things to do in Spain. To the point, that Last year we went to Spain at least once every month. The same thing carried on this year and even when I think about it, I think for the latter half of two years ago, we did exactly the same thing. … Continue Reading

As you already know, we recently visited Verona – an absolutely beautiful city perched about halfway between the more popular cities of Milan and Venice on a surprise trip with srprs.me. Why we hadn’t visited before I have no idea but when we visited, I very quickly realised we’d been missing out on a major … Continue Reading

Another day, another rickshaw adventure! This time though, the sun came out to play… and even better still, we stumbled upon an amazing surprise in the Italian countryside  – in huge part thanks to us taking a wrong turn and ending up in a town we had no plans to visit. (That’s definitely one of … Continue Reading

Today, we got an alert saying that Hand Luggage Only (yup, the very same one you’re reading this on right now), just hit the 1 million monthly page views milestone. 1 Million!!! WOW!!! 🎉 I can’t even fully process it – mostly because I can’t picture 1 million of one thing in the same place. … Continue Reading

New Year, new rickshaw adventures! 😁 This video is some serious farm-to-table video! 😀 We’ve literally done, filmed and edited everything in this video within the last 24 hours. (Who knows, I may yet master the art of this whole daily vlogging thing). As you probably already guessed from the title, we have indeed returned to … Continue Reading
