Sorrow In Sarajevo: A Heartbreaking Tale Of The Bosnian Capital

It's 25 years since the war ended in Bosnia - and yet it still bears scars that no country should have to endure. Sarajevo, Bosnia's capital city, had never made it onto my radar until I started researching it for this trip. What I found was an incredibly interesting city with a harrowing past and… Continue reading Sorrow In Sarajevo: A Heartbreaking Tale Of The Bosnian Capital

Exploring Beautiful Belgrade

Belgrade was another eastern European city that really took me by surprise with its pretty architecture and funky bars and cafés. Like Sofia, I had literally zero expectations for Belgrade. It was a city that I had never planned to visit, and it was only when we arrived in the Serbian capital that I realised… Continue reading Exploring Beautiful Belgrade

On Blog Awards (Plus I’ve Been Nominated!)

Over the past couple of years, I've been nominated for a handful of those circulating blogger awards (Liebster, Sunshine, and Versatile blogger, to name a few). Most bloggers don't take them seriously - and they shouldn't - but it's still nice to be recognised by fellow bloggers who enjoy your work (and also nice to… Continue reading On Blog Awards (Plus I’ve Been Nominated!)

With virtually five days in Sofia, there was no doubt that I was going to get a Bulgarian day trip out of my time there. I was even planning two - but I didn't know what to prioritise in case the second one didn't work out (whiiiich... it didn't). Rila or Plovdiv?

I had no expectations; in fact, if I'm going to be totally honest, I didn't actually expect to enjoy the city all that much. I hadn't even been planning to visit Sofia - I was originally planning a trip to… Continue reading Sofia: A City Of Colour And Contrast

Photo Friday: The Street Art Of Shoreditch, London

London never struck me as a huge city for street art. Apart from the famous Banksy artworks and the iconic Camden buildings, I couldn't have told you anything about any other murals in the city, or famous street art alleys like you have in Melbourne and San Francisco. But with the rise of the street… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Street Art Of Shoreditch, London

A Getaway In Galway, Ireland’s Colourful City

I felt an overwhelming sense of calm as we made our way across Ireland to the charming city of Galway. I knew I'd made the right decision - instead of a day over in Dublin, I'd planned out a full weekend to include Galway, too. The nice thing about Galway was that I had nothing… Continue reading A Getaway In Galway, Ireland’s Colourful City
