Places To Visit If You Want To Skip The Tourist Traps of Europe!

Instead of The Amalfi Coast, visit Montenegro: although the coast deserves all its fame it gets, the mass swarm of tourists can be a deterrent. The coastline of Montenegro offers some serious competition, complete with high mountain ranges, scary windy roads, and colorful houses. The little tourists and cheap prices compared to the Amalfi coast…

The Best Way To Visit The Colosseum

A tip to beating the hours of waiting for the Colosseum, and it doesn’t include listening to the annoying sales people out the front. A trip to Rome is never complete without a visit to the famous Colosseum. Even with the mass number of tourists and long lines, it is something everyone must do when…

The Amalfi Coast

Usually, when you have extremely high expectations of a place, it’s very unlikely that they ever meet up with them. The Amalfi coast, however, did. The Amalfi Coast has been written on my sticky notes on my computer under ‘places to travel to’ since I can remember, so when I booked a ticket to Europe…

Visit Albania Before Everyone Else Does

It’s turned out on my trip so far that the countries I’ve heard so much about, the popular tourist destinations, have been my least favorite countries. The countries I know nothing about, the ones we planned the shortest amount of time in and basically just used as a path towards another country, have been my…

The Lie of The Butterfly Valley

Is it worth visiting or camping at the Butterfly Valley? Short answer: NO! We were in search for a small remote place on a beach to set up our tent and pitch up for a few nights. Surrounded by like-minded people, sitting around bonfires, eating bonfire cooked meals and sharing travel stories. This, we didn’t…

Hitch Hiking From Estonia to Turkey

Rolling into Istanbul in a truck was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Not only was it an amazing way to experience one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the sparkling skyline appearing over the horizon, but it meant we had made it hitch hiking from Tallinn, Estonia all the way…

Why Now Is The Best Time To Visit Ukraine!

Scrolling through my Facebook feed, many articles tailored to my interests jump out at me. Most recently one particular article has made a reappearance ‘five countries to avoid in 2016’. Being overseas, and embarrassingly always drawn to click bait articles, I opened it. Amongst some obvious choices like Syria, was Ukraine, a country I was…

Why Lviv Was My Favourite City

Six things to do in Lviv! When entering Ukraine I had little expectations, and was pleasantly surprised when we stumbled across Lviv. A beautiful city with amazing architecture and history, amazing food, local home made chocolate and a love for coffee almost as strong as my own; it was the perfect city for me. In…

THAT time of travel 

🚫 WARNING: periods will be discussed. You’ve been warned boys.  Traveling and being a girl can be a bit of a mess, period. Dealing with that time of the month back home, in the comfort of your own bed and tub of ice cream can be hard enough, but on the road with limited supply…

The Days I Hate Traveling

How to fight those traveling blues. Some days I just want to pack up, say goodbye to everything, book a ticket… and go home. The constant moving around, my heavy backpack and the freezing cold weather was all of a sudden too much for me. By this point it was March, and I had officially…

Must have travel items!

I know there are a hundred and one different blog posts out there about what to pack in your backpack, but I still find them really useful. For example I read only too late how a cotton pad would keep my blush from breaking and coating the inside of my make-up bag. I’ll leave out…

My Exchange in Denmark

Living, working and studying in another country has always been top of my bucket list. As much as I love to travel there’s one thing I love to do more, and that’s living in another place and experiencing it like a local. If anyone at uni is thinking of doing an exchange through their university,…
