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 ...

What’s it like to travel solo again after travelling as two for 3 years.

I must've checked for my passport boarding pass and house keys about 3 times in between opening the door and closing the door of my flat. Usually I have a last minute run through in my head, being pretty certain that yes, I've got everything covered. I definitely worry a lot less when ive got my boyfriend to cover my back. Perhaps it's that I know that should anything go wrong, or anything be left ...

Burst mode Vs 4k photo

I’ve been out and about playing with the 4k photo modes on my Lumix TZ-100 camera again and having a great laugh while doing so. Did you know that 4k photo helps you levitate? Well, maybe not exactly… When I posted about 4k photography after my break in Cologne, I got a lot of questions asking why 4k photography was different to just using burst mode. That’s something I asked myself when I first began ...

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 ...

5 foods to eat in Cologne

You know me, I love my food. This is especially true when travelling! On my recent weekend in Cologne I didn't really know what to expect when it came to food. German's don't exactly have the best reputation. They're mainly known for their sausages but (whilst there is a German sausage or two on this list) it's not all about sausages. And hey, even if it is - they're just too good to turn down sometimes! Flammekuchen ...

4k photography in Cologne

Like most bloggers I'm pretty into my photography. I may not know all the technical aspects, the correct ISO settings, aperture and shutter speeds for certain situations but I like having a good play around with them and seeing what happens. Of course, if I'm spending time playing about with the settings (as I usually do) great shots often pass me by. By the time I've figured out what I want the photo to look ...

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 ...

The best swimwear for your summer adventures

Summer is on it’s way - yay! And with that comes a whole new host of adventures. Summer time adventures, more often than not,require some new swimwear. Something that winter adventures rarely require. Whether you’re clocking up the lengths in the nearby lido, pulling up your wetsuit ready to hit the waves of catch some wind kitesurfing, or taking some time out to relax with a good book by the pool, you’ll need some good ...
