It’s been a summer of non stop travel so when I had the chance to spend a day in Vienna I jumped at the opportunity. Not many cities can boast the imperial grandeur of Vienna, once the centre of ...
In the mid 19th century, Paris was suffocating in the cramped network of its ancient streets. Until then, the city had expanded by developing its outer districts without any careful consideration...
Although I was only in Porto for a couple of hours I thought it'd be a waste to spend them at the train station so I grabbed my camera and went for a little wander. The Estádio do Dragão stadium ...

You may remember a few weeks ago I posted my playlist from Montenegro as the Sea Dance Festival left me with some unforgettable memories. Unfortunately I lost pretty much all of my pictures so I ...
Time really does fly and last week I realised that it has been a year since I made the big move to London! On one hand I feel like I've only scratched the surface of this city but on the other I'...
My mini tour of Northern Italy continues and after being overwhelmed by Venice I decided to hunt for a nearby destination that's not so popular with tourists. Within 5 minutes of stepping out of ...

Back in spring I went over to Italy for a few days to visit an old friend and basically give my brain a little reset after a hectic start to 2015. After spending a day in Ferrara naturally the ne...
