Amsterdam

The last time I was in Amsterdam I was nine years old, on a layover with my mom and my grandmother. I remember thinking that they were way too dog friendly (I was terrified of dog’s as a child), and my grandmother fell in the shower. Not exactly great memories, but going back in November…

Barcelona

  Barcelona is a busting city, with great architecture, great transport links, food, beach and culture…outstanding! SIGHTS Gaudi You could spend a weekend just visiting all of Gaudi’s masterpieces, but even if it is not your main focus, it is easy to catch his work while walking around to your other destinations. I was able…

Manchester

  Manchester has always been an important place for me to visit. The home of Coronation Street, the hottest parties of the 90s, some of the best music and bands of our time, and one of my favourite accents, it was important place for me to see during my time in England. All this, and…

Bath

  Bath is quintessentially British. With history going back to the Roman times, the baths were the main pull for me to visit, but I did encounter much more. The beautiful artchitecutre, the charming high street and the spas make this a perfect weekend getaway. STAY Loch Fyne Milsoms Hotel Wanting to stay close to…

Copenhagen

  Copenhagen is a great place to be. It is effortlessly cool and trend setting, with the happiest looking attractive people that are the most chill. I have been there in the winter for the Christmas Markets and delicious glogg (mulled wine) and I have also been there in the spring, when the weather wasn’t that…

Marrakech

  Living in London, Europe is of course a short train or plane ride away – but so is the majestic beauty of North Africa. I went on this couples trip in February 2014, and it was cultural, it was eye opening and it was fun! STAY Riad Dar Najat I had wanted to stay in the…

Brussels

Brussels is an ideal weekend getway, if you are coming from London or a simlilary close location via train. It has lovely architecture, a chilled out vibe, decent food and delicious beers. All of the beers. SIGHTS Grand Place At the heart of the city, this square has beautiful old architecture laced in gold. Yes,…

Lisboa

Lisbon is one of the most beautiful and welcoming cities I have ever been to with a magical combination of architecture, history, food, culture, weather and humility.     I think you would have to be dead inside to not find something appealing about this beautiful place. I can never put my finger on exactly…
