My Polish Weekend – When Things Don’t Go As Planned

2

Okay, so my run of smooth travelling was bound to run out at some point. I mean, nobody is that lucky. And as you have probably already guessed by the title of this post, yes, my luck ran out and Poland wasn’t all puppy dogs and rainbows as I would have liked. But still a beautiful place, so visit if you get the chance!

Santorini – Flight Mode On

7

I can’t believe how fast this year is going, it’s already September! That’s only four months until Christmas!!! At the same time, I feel like I’ve achieved so much. I’ve changed careers, started writing a novel, traveled to ten new destinations within Europe (that’s one place every two weeks) took up baking classes in Paris, maintained a social life and so much more. 

Because I’m always on the go, constantly looking to tick the next thing off my bucket list, before I know it, another week, another month, and another year has passed. So one thing I’m learning to do a lot more of, is to just stop. To take a deep breathe and take it all in. Acknowledge my hard work and what I’ve accomplished, and know that I don’t always have to be ‘doing something’ on my travels. Sometimes it’s just nice to go somewhere and have some much needed chill time. 

Which is exactly what I wanted from my trip to Santorini. This place has been at the top of my bucket list for as long as I can remember, and I wanted nothing more than to sit back, relax and just take it all in.

Ibiza: A Guide For First-Time Partiers

1

When I was offered the opportunity to indulge in the Ibiza spirit, I jumped at the chance. Literally. I jumped out of my chair and was hair flipping all like Oh hells yes! I’ve never been a huge partier but Ibiza’s reputation of over-the-top pool parties, glitter covered partygoers and an extravagant club culture called to my inner diva. And it’s reputation stayed true as I spent 48 hours on this unforgettable island.

Real Life Fairytale Castles

6

Greetings from my bedroom in London, where I’m sipping on the most delicious hot chocolate whilst writing this post. I’ve just come back from my trip to Germany and with my German heritage, you’d think that 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

9

Hello, from the best cafe in Brussels! I have just polished off an entire plate of waffles and I’m not gonna lie, I could go another! But more on that later in the post. So why Brussels you may be wondering. Well, with the Amalfi Coast ticked off my bucket list (I still can’t believe I was actually there), I was in the mood for more of a city break for my next destination. Somewhere not overly expensive where I can walk, explore and have some much needed cafe time. 

Having heard that you can do Brussels in a day, I thought to myself, why not? So I booked myself a ticket on the Eurostar and well, here I am.
