AUSCHWITZ

This post has been really difficult to write. Auschwitz was not an enjoyable experience, it was harrowing and humbling and surreal. It was the most grounded I felt in a long time and this is why going to Auschwitz is so important. It is easy to get caught up in our own little bubble andContinue reading “AUSCHWITZ”

72 HOURS IN… KRAKOW

Last week I visited my 23rd country, Poland! Krakow was a fascinating fusion of European architecture and culture and is one of my favourite cities to date. I’m so glad I visited in winter (though sadly missed the Christmas markets by a week), and wish I had a few more days to enjoy the sightsContinue reading “72 HOURS IN… KRAKOW”

I’M MOVING TO CHINA?!

Huge life update: I’m moving to China. If it’s any consolation, I’m as shocked as you are. After a personal crisis and realisation that I need to spend some time on my own self improvement and future goals, I decided to apply for a few jobs abroad.

A FEW DAYS IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE

Last week I spent 5 days in the South of France, doing little more than burying my nose in a book and wandering from café to café in beautiful little towns and villages.

One of the BEST things to do when travelling is head off the beaten track and explore the natural environment of the place you’re visiting. This, for me, means lots of hikes and outdoor adventures!

Others scoff at young people who want to travel and assume that they are privileged or their parents are paying for them to jet off toContinue reading “HOW TO SAVE UP FOR TRAVELLING”

72 HOURS IN… BERLIN

Back with another city break guide in my 72 hours saga! Mine and my boyfriend’s first trip abroad together was a winter break in Berlin to celebrate my 21st birthday, and honestly it was the perfect place for us for so many reasons… the food, history, culture, and the added bonus of Christmas markets madeContinue reading “72 HOURS IN… BERLIN”

HOW TO TAKE THE PLUNGE AND TRAVEL SOLO

Scared to take the plunge and travel solo? Don’t be! There are so many ways to overcome your fears of travelling alone. My sister has recently booked a few days in Budapest on her own as no one was able to go with her, and I’m so proud that she’s doing it anyway! When IContinue reading “HOW TO TAKE THE PLUNGE AND TRAVEL SOLO”

TOP 10 BUCKET LIST DESTINATIONS

My dad has a bit of a map obsession and I think it must have passed onto me because I spend so much of my time sitting staring at my scratch map, his huge Europe map, or spinning my little copper globe. While I want to visit as much of this beautiful earth as IContinue reading “TOP 10 BUCKET LIST DESTINATIONS”

72 Hours in… Barcelona

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love a European city break. Endless coffee stops, exploring museums, walking around beautiful parks and seeing the most iconic sights make for a full and exciting weekend break. My most recent city break was with my boyfriend to a place I’ve wanted toContinue reading “72 Hours in… Barcelona”
