‘Real Life’ Fairytale Castles

6

It would make sense, that with my German heritage, my first solo trip to this amazing country would be thoroughly planned, right? Days filled with beautiful countryside, leisurely strolls through villages that look like giant gingerbread houses, and of course the incredible alps.

I mean, that all sounds wonderful and something I will definitely be doing in the future, but with only a weekend getaway in sight, I had one thing and one thing only on my mind. Neuschwanstein Castle. Yes, that’s right, the most famous ‘real life’ fairytale castle in the entire world, and what most people refer to as The Disney Castle.

24 Hours In Brussels

Blog Pics

With the Amalfi Coast ticked off my bucket list, I was feeling in the mood for more of a city break for my next destination. Somewhere not overly expensive where I could walk, explore and have some much needed cafe time. 

Having heard that you can do Brussels in a day, I thought, why not? and booked myself a ticket. It still feels surreal that within two hours I can go from being in London to being in an entirely different country. I absolutely love it!

So off to Brussels it was for me – the land of world famous chocolate and waffles. And it didn’t disappoint!

Social Media – It’s So Good But It’s So Bad

When it comes to social media, you either love it or you hate it. And for a long time, I absolutely loved it.

I no longer have to worry about expensive phone calls or sending the same picture multiple times. And as a bonus I’ve been able to connect with like minded people along the way.

But with the rise of social media and the ways in which the platforms are being used, it has come to my attention that as much as it’s a blessing, the reality is, it can also be a curse.

Life is what you make it. You can live in excuses and regrets or you can create the life you’ve always dreamed of.

I’ve never been one to follow the structured path created by society. Instead I’ve made my own rules, challenged myself along the way, embraced every opportunity and grown into a fierce and determined woman. And you know what? I couldn’t be happier!

Exploring The Amalfi Coast

16

There’s no questioning how much I love Italy. If I could spend a few months every year living and breathing the Italian lifestyle, I’d be one happy woman. There’s just something about the warmth of the people and their simple yet happy lives, that connects with me. I’ve even come to enjoy an espresso after dinner, which for me, a non coffee drinker, is saying something. 

Right now, I’m back in London. Sitting on my bed writing this post as the rain is poring outside. Rain in springtime. Why London, why? But my heart… my heart is where I was last week. Exploring the beautiful areas of Sorrento, Positano, Pompeii and Capri. The Amalfi Coast is just as incredible as it’s hyped up to be and here’s why.
