Szechenyi Vs Gellert: Battle Of The Budapest Spa Baths

Budapest is famous for its thermal spa baths all over the city, but two in particular are popular with tourists: Szechenyi and Gellert. I've written about both briefly in my post about Budapest, as my friend and I ended up visiting both after we couldn't choose which would be the best to visit - and… Continue reading Szechenyi Vs Gellert: Battle Of The Budapest Spa Baths

Three Days In Fairytale Budapest, One Of My Favourite Cities

A few months ago, I finally returned to Budapest, eight years after my first visit. Budapest very quickly became one of my favourite cities in Europe, and I was curious to see how I would find it a second time around, and whether the magic would capture me just as instantaneously as it did the… Continue reading Three Days In Fairytale Budapest, One Of My Favourite Cities

2022: A Busy Year In Review

2022 has been quite a year. What started out with a single booked trip which was cancelled on my birthday, 2022 ended up being one of our most travelled years yet (non-continuous travels, at least). I've been to 11 countries, which I think is my most in a single year, plus we finally ticked off… Continue reading 2022: A Busy Year In Review

Truthfully, I'd never… Continue reading Christmas In Kaunas: Feeling Festive In Lithuania

Our time in Zanzibar was mostly spent relaxing by a beach, but - and call me weird if you like - one thing I was really looking forward to seeing was the Zanzibari doors of Stone Town. The doors of Stone Town are intricate, interesting and beautifully carved, and while I have a penchant for… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Doors Of Stone Town, Zanzibar

An Introduction To Kenya – A Safari In The Maasai Mara

Originally, we weren't planning to visit Kenya at all. We were planning our honeymoon in Tanzania, with a few days on safari followed by a few days of beach time in Zanzibar. After finding tours that started in Nairobi and visited both the Maasai Mara and the Serengeti, I started to think about whether we… Continue reading An Introduction To Kenya – A Safari In The Maasai Mara
