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 ...
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 ...
When I travel I try to stray off the beaten path. You still get to experience the touristy side of the city but also find the little intricacies that only the locals really know about. During my ...
A recognised UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Amalfi Coast lies in the southwestern region of Campania, Italy and is recognised worldwide for its cliff-side Mediterranean fishing villages, lemon t...
Following on from my previous post that showed my travel essentials and places to visit at night in Dubai, I wanted to tell you about the ultimate destination you probably did not even think abou...
When asked to sum up the Buddha’s teachings up in one phrase a zen teacher Suzuki Roshi simply said, “Everything changes.”. We must remember this in our daily lives and understand that clinging o...
Practically everyone has a dream vacation, that one destination you’d give anything to visit. But for many, that exotic locale is out of reach financially. Whether you’ve always wanted to take th...
I consider myself a pretty spontaneous individual so when a chance to visit Greece, France and Italy in the space of a week landing in my inbox, I found it difficult to resist. I always considere...
Travelling to new places is always about self discovery. Finding out why you view certain things the way you do, breaking misconceptions and realising there is no such thing as 'normal'. What you...
Gandhi once said 'The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members'. This might be an odd way to start my post about Amsterdam but I believe the Netherlan...
Every time I visit Italy my train passes Bologna and I just can't help but jump out, even for a couple of hours. Bologna boasts a one of a kind atmosphere that's hard to replicate, even with othe...
It would be a shame to visit Ukraine and not spend a few days in the natural solitude of the Carpathian Mountains. After a visit to Kiev, Ivano Frankivsk and Lviv I booked myself a cosy little co...
Last month I had a chance to see off an old mate who was off an whirlwind adventure in Asia and it gave me a chance to return to the city that started it all - Leeds. It hasn't even been a year s...
With the amount of time I spend in Italy it's actually starting to feel like my second home. This time I actually had a camera with me (pre-accident with the lens) and decided to become a tourist...
Continuing on from PART 1 of my Eastern European journey I found myself in Western Ukraine. After a sweaty but comfortable 24 hour train ride a whole new part of the country was open for explorat...
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...
Even though I live in one of the busiest cities in the world it's always nice to get a breath of fresh air (literally and figuratively) and venture back to Yorkshire, a county full of history and...
After a hectic but fun few hours in Santorini we made our way north to the glamorous island of Mykonos. Famous for its party reputation and fashionable boutiques, Mykonos experienced a resurgence...
