Sometimes, when travelling, I miss the home comforts like spending a morning lounging on the sofa in front of the TV or cooking myself a tasty meal. Renting an apartment or home rather than staying in a hotel allows me to have a home away from home.
Portugal is one of my favourite countries in Europe. The Algarve area on the south coast is nothing short of stunning; with it’s deep blue water, gorgeous sandy beaches and incredible rock formations, this is one place that needs to be added to your bucket list.
Last week we were lucky enough to be invited to try something new by Eatwith (eatwith.com). I’m always up for a great experience and The Best of Catalan Gastronomy on a Sailing Boat with Patricia was definitely that. We enjoyed dinner on a boat in Barcelona hosted by a lovely local couple and were joined by another couple from Atlanta. Fast forward to amazing food, a fantastic evening and new friends – Eatwith is something that anyone and everyone should try!
Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, is often overlooked in favour of more popular central European city destinations such as Prague and Budapest. We were invited to stay in Bratislava for a night by Vienna House hotels and have put together a guide as to why Bratislava should be on your bucket list.
What do you think of when someone mentions Prague? I’d imagine a fair few people would instantly be reminded of groups of drunk 20-something year old men celebrating their last days of freedom before they get hitched, right? Bachelor parties and stag dos filling the streets? I’m here to change your mind and hopefully persuade you that there’s so much more to this city than beer bikes and blokes.
Do you have a layover/free day after work/ short trip planned in Paris? If so, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s my guide to cramming the best sights Paris has to offer into one day.
Cody and I spent seven nights in Tenerife back in July. We aren’t the kind of people to just sit around by the hotel pool for the whole week – we wanted to go somewhere where we could explore but be guaranteed good weather and we also wanted to go scuba diving.
