Exploring the Slovenian Lakes. Bohinj and Bled.

We woke early on the morning of leaving Vesna and The Herbal Rooms. Early as in before 6am... We had a full day ahead of us to explore beautiful Slovenia and were keen to pack in as much as possible, hence the early wake up call! We were headed towards Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj and then were set to  finish the day in Ljublijana where we'd standup paddle board down the river: the best way ...

A Slovenian homestay with Slocally

Have you ever just been blown away by a country? I often find myself thinking, “wow this is beautiful,” when I travel but I don’t think anywhere has surprised me as much as Slovenia did. From the extremely helpful woman who rented us a car (I mean, come on, when does that ever happen? - She didn’t even try and push insurance to us!) to the fact is was just SO. GREEN. During our short ...

Les Sybelles: The French Alps’ Hidden Gem

I'll bet you've never heard of Les Sybelles. This ski area made up of six resorts forms the fourth biggest ski area in the whole of the French Alps with an impressive 310km of pistes. That's before you even consider the off-piste skiing and non-ski related activities you can do in Les Sybelles! All six resorts are interlinked thanks to 76 ski lifts and each resort has its own unique feel. From the foodie resorts ...

The alternative weekend guide: Cologne

A weekend in Cologne is the ideal length of time for visiting this city. You could definitely spend longer but a weekend in Cologne will give you enough time to see what this German city is all about. It's just an hour's flight away from London, pretty cheap to get there if you book early enough and the city has such a great laid back vibe to it that you'll return home feeling chilled. It's ...

Cycling in Mallorca

As much as I love exploring a city on foot, sometimes it's nice to pick the pace up a little bit and see more of your destination. I'm not talking about running - don't be crazy- but, rather, cycling! A cycle ride (especially when there's not too many hills) can actually beuite relaxing. You can breathe in the fresh air and get your heart racing but not too much so as to knacker you out ...

Weekend Guide: Swansea Bay

Walking the stunning Swansea Bay coastline wasn't the only thing we got up to during our weekend. And, for somewhere under 3 hours away from London by direct train, you should make Swansea Bay your next weekend getaway! What's the difference between Swansea Bay and Swansea City? I'm not sure of any official different but they're both in the same place and not far from each other at all. Whilst Swansea City is the city ...

5 ways Swansea Bay surprised me

I'm just back from a weekend in Swansea Bay with Visit Swansea Bay and, up until Friday afternoon, I didn't really know what to expect. Before I share more tales (and a video) of my weekend of #SwanseaBayAdventures, here are 5 ways in which the Swansea Bay area of Wales surprised me. The beautiful coastline I knew Wales had some stunning coastline, but I had no idea that the coastline in the Swansea Bay area made up ...

Exploring Gothenburg’s Southern Archipelago.

A quick twenty minutes on the tram from central Gothenburg and you can be at the port of Salthomen; the gateway to the archipelago. The archipelago has 5,000 permanent residents and another 6,000 residents during the summer months. All the islands are strictly car free but that doesn't mean you won't see any vehicles! The residents of Gothenburg’s archipelago rely on golf buggies to get them from one end of the island to the other! ...

10 Reasons I Fell In Love With Gothenburg

When I picked Gothenburg as the destination for a Christmassy weekend away I had no idea how much I'd love it. I'd got excited reading about the Christmas market, and even more excited when I discovered you could escape the city and be out in the archipelago in under 30 minutes, but little did I know I'd love the city as much as I did. As soon as we walked off the plane I was ...

Liseberg Christmas Market in Gothenburg, Sweden

This year I was after a chilly, Christmassy weekend away. Even more so since the weather in England has been so crazily warm (people should not be sat outside pubs in t-shirts on 20th December)! My boyfriend and I are spending Christmas with our own families this year, so as a treat I thought we should have our own Christmassy weekend away together. I wanted a Christmassy market with a difference. Not a German one, ...
