12 essential activities for a weekend in Queenstown NZ

Queenstown is one of the destinations that I’ve been to multiple times, and I would happily continue going back again and again. There is just something really special about it. The magic starts as early as the flight into Queenstown which has the most spectacular views I’ve ever seen from the window seat. The airport itself is perched between...

8 fun and fascinating things to do in Leipzig

According to my walking tour guide, Leipzig is known within Germany as “Cheaper Berlin”. It has some similarities to Germany’s capital, like the super adorable Ampelmännchen street light men that remain from when Leipzig was part of East Germany, but aside from that, I found the city to be rather different. With a population only a sixth of the...

7 activities you really must do in Munich

Munich may be famous for Oktoberfest, but this beer-obsessed city has plenty of activities to keep you occupied year-round. There are people wearing Dirndls and Lederhosen that will serve you a stein of beer and a pretzel in a massive beer hall at any time of the year. The traditions of southern Germany are prevalent all throughout the city,...

10 days in Croatia + Slovenia road trip itinerary

A friend recently asked me to list the top 5 countries that I’ve visited. A tough question, as each country has a set of unique qualities that make it great (or bad!). I pondered the question for a while, and realised that one country had moved up in the list after my recent winter Eurotrip. Rob and I spent 2 months travelling the European continent,...

Exploring Slovenia’s capital: the best things to do in Ljubljana

Ljubljana is one of my favourite cities in the whole world. Though much less popular with tourists than other European destinations, Ljubljana is up there at the top of my list. It’s hard to put my finger on exactly what it is that I love about it… I think it comes down to a combination of a three factors: The first is that the entire...

Become a more ethical traveller with this slow fashion challenge!

Could you go without buying new clothes for 12 months? Right now might be the perfect time to reassess your fashion habits. Let me tell you a quick story about the last time I purchased something that I would consider ‘fast fashion’. It was 2018 and I was doing a road trip around Scotland. I felt like I didn’t have enough t-shirts to get...

Working from home: A guide to staying sane and being productive

With international travel being the last thing on everyone’s minds right now, I figured this is probably a good chance to talk about working from home. For the past few years, my office has been a desk in the corner of my living room. I use this space to get work done as a freelancer, and more recently as a place to study for my university degree....

How to spend one perfect day in Zagreb

Croatia’s capital city of Zagreb is one of those pleasantly surprising destinations. My previous experience of a Croatian city was a single-day visit to Dubrovnik on my first ever international trip back in 2006. Even though it had only been 11 years since the end of the Croatian War of Independence, I remember Dubrovnik being totally gorgeous...

Plitvice Lakes in winter: Here’s everything you need to know

The pictures that I’d seen of Plitvice Lakes made it look like it was too good to be true. The pretty photos I’d seen pop up in my Instagram feed showed bright turquoise water cascading in thousands of little streams over seemingly perfect waterfalls. Surely, no place exists that is actually that pretty – it must have been some sort of Photoshop...

9 fabulous things to do in Bled

When I first visited Bled in 2014, it was on a quickie day trip from Slovenia’s capital city, Ljubljana. This is how the majority of people visit Bled. Just like the other tourists, I was under the impression that I only needed one day to see the picturesque holiday village in northern Slovenia. It felt a little rushed, but I managed to squeeze...
