Watching the Eagles Parade in Philadelphia

With the new NFL season kicking off last week, I thought I’d share my experience watching the Eagles parade in downtown Philadelphia earlier this year. I just happened to be travelling around the US at the time of the Super Bowl. The excitement surrounding this event was palpable and contagious, and it was difficult not […]

Where to find the best street art in Ostrava

One of the many reasons I like Ostrava is the incredible street art. For those of you who might not know, Ostrava lies east of Prague close to the Polish border and is the capital of the Moravian-Silesian Region of the Czech Republic. It’s an important industrial centre and known for coal-mining and iron works. For […]

Chilling at Kopjes cat café in Amsterdam

Cat cafés are my new obsession. Yeah, I know, I’m kinda late to the party, but better late than never. It combines two of my favourite things in the world: cats and desserts. What’s not to love? There is only one cat café in Amsterdam called Kopjes. Last weekend I decided to go hang out […]

Český Krumlov in 25 photos

The moment my feet hit the cobblestone streets of Český Krumlov, I knew I was going to fall in love with this medieval town. How could I not? With colourful buildings, a magnificent Castle complex, (the second largest in the Czech Republic btw), picturesque panoramas around every corner and the meandering Vltava River, what’s not to love? […]

Eating at Laibon in Český Krumlov

Straight up, being a vegetarian or vegan in the Czech Republic is difficult. You will struggle to find a decent place to eat. There will always be at least one vegetarian dish on the menu (usually the deep-fried cheese with salad or chips) at any given restaurant or pub, but you’ll definitely not be spoilt […]

10 reasons why Ostello Bello Grande Milan is one of the best hostels

It’s so rare to find a hostel that goes out of its way to make you feel welcome and cram as such value as they can into your stay. Ostello Bello Grande in Milan went that extra mile and beyond. Not only is this hostel hip and stylish, it also gives you so many freebies. […]

Visiting my first cat café in Ostrava, Czech Republic

There are two kinds of people: dog people and cat people. I’m totally one of the latter, a cat person! Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs. I’m the owner of the most adorable and loveable husky ever. But I would still describe myself as a cat person. Because my husband is allergic to cats, […]

Where to find some of the best Neapolitan pizza in Florence

Who doesn’t love pizza? Because even if it’s bad, it’s still good, right? As far as food revelations go, I came to an important one in Florence during my recent trip to Italy. (On a side note, isn’t Italy the best country for food revelations? Anyway…) My favourite style of pizza is Neapolitan. I’ve always […]

Photos to show you just how stunning Lindos is

If you were to google ‘Lindos’, you’ll see a couple of beautiful pictures in the search results. But I felt the images online didn’t quite do this postcard-perfect fisher village justice, so I wanted to share my own photos with you. Here is some visual inspiration for you to travel to Lindos. What makes Lindos […]

Visiting the Empire State Building: Day vs Night

The Empire State Building is one of the top, if not the first, attraction that comes to mind when I think about New York City. I’ve travelled to the city twice now and both times I’ve visited the Empire State Building. Back in 2016, I visited the building during the day. It was packed full […]

My Strasbourg photo diary

Strasbourg is a beautiful French city in the Alsace region, close to the border between France and Germany. The Alsace region has a turbulent history as it has passed between French and German control several times since 1681. Because of its history, you’ll see a great deal of German and French influences throughout the city today, […]

A quick stopover in Lille

On my way back to Amsterdam from Paris, I wanted to break up my bus journey into smaller, more comfortable stretches. I’d already been to the obvious choices, Brussels and Antwerp, so I was searching for another lively and interesting city to explore. Enter Lille. Lille is the fourth largest French city at the northern […]

I ate a cronut in New York City and it wasn’t great

Being a huge fan of sweet pastries, a trip to New York City wouldn’t be complete for me without a visit to the Dominique Ansel Bakery to grab a cronut. If you haven’t heard of a cronut before, where have you been for the last five years? A cronut is a trendy hybrid pastry, part […]
