Hiking & Heating Up In Kotor, Montenegro

I'm not sure where to start with Kotor - which is probably why it's taken so long for me to write this post! Montenegro was the main reason I went on this trip. Photos of Kotor have captured my attention for a few years, and I was determined to get there before tourism blew up… Continue reading Hiking & Heating Up In Kotor, Montenegro

Surviving Dubrovnik – And Falling In Love With It

Alright, so I'm not gonna lie to you guys: I was a little apprehensive about Dubrovnik. Not only has it become one of the world's hottest tourist spots, which escalated exponentially thanks to Games Of Thrones, but it only flew onto the radar and into people's top spots within the last 10 years. That's a… Continue reading Surviving Dubrovnik – And Falling In Love With It

Photo Friday: The Beauty Of Bosnia

It's no secret that I loved Bosnia. From the charming towns to the stunning mountains; the villages with backdrops to the sprawling countryside. Bosnia and Herzegovina had way more to offer than I could ever have expected. Of course, most of my photos were taken from the window of a bus, and that's not the… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Beauty Of Bosnia

Mostar: The Gem Of Bosnia

After Sarajevo, I was bracing myself for Mostar. I knew about the beauty; but I wasn't sure how much the city was still affected by the war, especially compared to Bosnia's capital and the horrors we'd seen there. ...oh boy. The huge difference with Mostar though, is once you get into the historic centre, it… Continue reading Mostar: The Gem Of Bosnia

A Day In Beautiful Seville, Spain

While I was on the Algarve, I kept hearing the same things over and over again: Seville is AMAZING. To be honest, I have never really "got" Spain from my previous trips to Barcelona and the border towns by Gibraltar, but everyone was telling me that Seville was beautiful and absolutely worth visiting. On my… Continue reading A Day In Beautiful Seville, Spain

#tbt: A Birthday Break To Greece

One thing Ash is absolutely passionate about when it comes to history is Greek mythology, so in the hunt for a birthday present a few years agoΒ I naturally dug around for some cheap flights and treated him to a hotel break in the heart of Greek history: Athens! (am I the best girlfriend ever or… Continue reading #tbt: A Birthday Break To Greece

#tbt: Hitting Two Of Europe’s “Big Cities”: Barcelona & Rome

When I owned my shop, time off was really scarce. Like, really really. Like, I went almost a year without having two days off together. So when I did find the time to get out of the UK (because leaving the country was genuinely the best - and only - way to distance myself from… Continue reading #tbt: Hitting Two Of Europe’s “Big Cities”: Barcelona & Rome

#tbt: The Only Time I’ve Been Abroad With My Parents

I was not brought up into a travelling family. Which is strange because my mum can speak some French and regales many tales of a trip she took with Dad to Amsterdam, and I've seen some great pictures of her in Paris. But somewhere along the way, they settled down into farming and haven't been… Continue reading #tbt: The Only Time I’ve Been Abroad With My Parents

#tbt: My First Ever Trip Abroad to Switzerland

It's been a while since I did a #throwbackthursday post. So I suppose this is a throwback to my throwback posts, as well as being my ultimate throwback post because this one's about the first time I ever went abroad. I was actually a late bloomer to travel. Being from the literal middle of nowhere… Continue reading #tbt: My First Ever Trip Abroad to Switzerland

#tbt: That Time We Went to Europe to See a Band

It's our sixth anniversary on Tuesday, so I thought I'd write a post on Ash and I's first trip abroad together. I'd like to think of it as a poignant moment ofΒ our relationship - we actually planned it before we even got together; it's partly what brought us together, and the band is the whole… Continue reading #tbt: That Time We Went to Europe to See a Band
