After an adrenaline-fueled afternoon paragliding from France to Switzerland, we figured the rest of our day might as well be spent chilling in Geneva and with that, we headed down to the lake for what is easily one of the most fun, chilled things to in Geneva. See, down by the lake, there’s something of … Continue Reading

By the way, the queue to get in here is incredibly long! It goes round several blocks/streets and then some. By any standards of queues anywhere else we’ve been, it’s long! I can’t speak to how fast the queue moves though (maybe it moves fast enough to make it not so tedious for those on … Continue Reading

Visiting the Vatican city in Rome was something of a big deal when we visited. For starters, I’d read about it, seen photos about it and heard so many stories for so long that my excitement was through the roof at finally being able to visit. Then there’s the fact that you have to prepare … Continue Reading

We arrived in Geneva on a delightfully sunny day – the kind that makes you wanna hurriedly chuck your luggage into your hotel room and head out exploring straight away! And so that’s what we did! The hotel was thankfully within walking distance of the city centre so we head out on foot, strolling leisurely … Continue Reading

Now, since we’d arrived in Stuttgart, we hadn’t properly managed to check out the Christmas market. The first day we had snow-rain and had to leave within a short time of arriving in the markets (my shoes were soaked and freezing). The next day, we’d spent so long exploring the city, I was just too … Continue Reading

The beauty of some of the best hikes in Spain undoubtedly lies in how delightfully sunny the country is. So much so that us visitors from all over Europe (and indeed the world over), unfailingly make the annual summer pilgrimage in search of said sunshine and warm weather. To put it simply, we all love … Continue Reading

Portugal is easily one of the most dramatically beautiful countries in Europe yet somewhat one of the most under-rated. Some of the best hikes in Portugal will easily rival any other options in other European countries yet for some reason, they just seem so much less known (or at the very least, less talked about) … Continue Reading

After a brilliant day in colourful Tubingen, we decided to head over to Esslingen for what was supposed to be one of the best Christmas markets in town. Esslingen is confusingly a city within the wider Stuttgart region (only ‘confusing’ because of the whole city within a city thing – in reality, it couldn’t be … Continue Reading

It’s probably safe to say the idea of watching your typical Rugby match in London, is something of a no-brainer. You buy your tickets, you show up (probably dressed in your fave supporting gear finery), watch the game (perhaps, drink in hand) and head home when the game is over. There’s not a whole lot … Continue Reading

After a day exploring Stuttgart (and the markets at night), we decided to step out of the city in search of what lay outside of the city. The recommendation, by and large, was to go to Tubingen and if I’m totally honest, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. I knew there was a row … Continue Reading

Greece is an incredible country to visit and one of Europe’s most beautiful areas to visit. With its iconic Greek islands, long history and the yummiest Greek Food, there literally thousands of the best places in Greece to visit. That being said, you won’t be able to do them all in one trip! 😉 This … Continue Reading

After spending the day on the Farne Island the day before, we decided to start our day nice and chilled visiting the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. After all, a microgap is about not just getting to explore an area but getting to lean into things you love in said-area (and I’m definitely partial to be … Continue Reading

Waking up refreshed from yesterday’s adventure around Northumberland, we headed down for a relaxing and chilled breakfast in the Joiner’s Arms. As they say, ‘all happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast’ and this was just that. After filling up on mountains of fresh fruit, pots of tea and English breakfast (minus black pudding and mushrooms … Continue Reading

I’ll just start by answering that question with a huge spoiler alert – a roadtrip from the UK to Austria is soooooooo much fun!  It isn’t necessarily the most obvious road trip route we would have thought of (in large part because we in the UK live on an island physically disconnect from mainland Europe) … Continue Reading
