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

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

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

Perched within the centre of Europe, Poland is a pretty big and beautiful country to visit. It doesn’t matter if you’re planning a weekend getaway, slow-paced chillout or an epic adventure – I guarantee you’ll find a few spots that take your fancy. It doesn’t matter what region you visit as there are so many … Continue Reading

I genuinely enjoy winter – there’s something so lovely about staying in and wrapping up warm when it’s so bitterly cold outside. There’s also how beautiful everything gets when it snows. Well, that is until Christmas time is over and done with and, after a few weeks of rather grey weather in London (with no … Continue Reading

Waking up in our cosy safari lodge, at The Gathering, was just lovely. There’s something so exciting about staying somewhere totally unique and completely different from normal day-to-day life. Especially after a long day exploring the Peak District. After all, that’s what makes a microgap so much fun…trying out totally new and exciting experiences. Now, … Continue Reading

I slept like a log after our amazing day, yesterday, exploring the Peak District (which, you can read here). As my alarm went off, I caught the faintest smell of breakfast being prepared in the dining room downstairs. Within a matter of minutes, I plonked myself right at the table awaiting my food. I’m not … Continue Reading

Ever since I was little, I’d always loved heading to the properly beautiful rural spots that are dotted around England. It’s always been such an adventure to me. Over the years, as I’ve grown ‘longer in the tooth’, I’ve been able to visit so many more of these stunning spots in England… but one was … Continue Reading

Spain is an incredible country to explore that’s so much more than it’s beautiful beaches or the Balearic Islands. That’s not to say they’re not gorgeous (they are) but Spain is a pretty vast country that has so much more going on. There are literally thousands of places in Spain to visit that you’ll be … Continue Reading

I’d always been mildly intrigued about doing a Via Ferrata in Italy. I’d seen incredible photos and videos on the internet of people doing them and lazily wondered what it would be like to do one. Thet mild intrigue soon turned into trepidation once we booked ourselves onto an actual Via Ferrata in Garda Trentino … Continue Reading
