Budapest is a gorgeous European city that really demands more than a day, but if that’s all you have, fear not – you can still fit a hell of a lot of sightseeing into this time-frame without burning out. I’ve even posted a handy little route map for you. How about that? It should also help you find your bearings based on what neighbourhood you’re staying in.   THE MORNING Try to… Read More

I can now officially say from experience, a night out in Dublin is phenomenal. The Temple Bar area is busy and expensive (an average of €8ish for a drink) but as long as its a one off and not daily life it is well worth it. You don’t even have to dress up.

21/08/17 Today we travelled in the opposite direction to anywhere we’d yet visited, heading further West across the country. Our first stop was a gorgeous stretch of beach that was so silent, virtually abandoned. It was a bit of a trek down narrow, winding roads, but it was well worth it.

Flying over Margaret Island I could just make out… Read More

Lincoln is a beautiful, historical city in the county of Lincolnshire in the east of England. It’s not very big, but it’s crammed full of charm. There’s a surprisingly impressive amount of things to do in Lincoln. You can visit the castle and the cathedral while traversing cobbled streets. You can pay to go up the castle, but the walk through the grounds is free of charge. From these structures, you can… Read More
