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 ...

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 ...

YOTEL Hotel Review

I definitely favour cheap flights at unsociable hours over more expensive flights at "normal" times of the day (much to my boyfriend's dismay). It's not just that they're cheaper, it's also that they arrive early giving you extra time in your destination. This is ideal for those of us who love weekend breaks. However, even I'm not a fan of getting a night bus across London to ensure I'm at an airport by 4am. My ...

Eating (and drinking) in the Dordogne Valley

If France has a reputation for one thing it’s the food and drink. From the cheeses to the wines, the champagne and the charcuterie, croissants, macarons and more. Each region, or départment, of France has its own specialities and you simply can’t visit France without filling your belly with as much food as possible. The Dordogne Valley is no exception to this. In fact, besides being home to France’s most beautiful villages, it’s widely considered ...

Why you should go glamping

You guys know I love camping, but for those times when I feel like adding a touch of luxury to my adventures, I turn to glamping. Made up from the words “camping” and “glamourous”, glamping is glamorous camping. You get the thrill and excitement of sleeping somewhere wild for the night, but don’t have to worry about rocks under your sleeping bag and bent tent pegs. If you’re not quite ready to go all out ...

10 Reasons You Should Travel Along The Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago, or The Way of St James, is the name given to any number of pilgrimage routes which lead to the shrine of the apostle St. James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. Many hundreds of people follow the Camino de Santiago every year for both spiritual reasons and just as a great way to see the beautiful scenery of northern Spain. Traditionally you’d walk, following the blue and ...

Going off road with the new Vauxhall MOKKA X

Since I’ve been living in London I’ve missed having a car. During the week it’s not too bad. Getting the tube into central London avoids congestion charges and means I don’t have to be fully awake for another half hour or so. But come the weekend? That’s when I really, really miss it. I miss the ease of being able to pack a boot full of gear for adventures and not being restricted by a ...

5 Great Night Time London Adventures

The countryside and the wilderness aren’t the only places you can find adventure. There’s plenty of adventure in the cities, especially in cities as big in London. London adventures come in all shapes and sizes requiring varying amounts of planning. Adventures don’t just happen during the day of course, and although I’m much more of a morning lark than a night owl, sometimes night time adventures can be the best ones. I’ve been working with ...

Nowadays visitors to Scotland, whether history lovers or not, love exploring these beautiful castles in Scotland whether they’re in ruins or have been lovingly restored. Here is my pick of the best castles in Scotland but I’m sure there are more! Do you ...

How to sell everything you own and raise money for travel!

Guys. I can’t quite believe that we're now in Canada. AND that we'll be living here for the next 2 years (unless we hate it...). It’s not like I’ve been waiting for this for a year or anything… (oh, wait). Anyway, given that we’ve upped sticks and moved across the Atlantic, we had to sort out our flat and sell everything we own for our travels. Well, almost everything. We still own some stuff (like ...
