I Went to Pokhara and Didn’t Trek the Annapurna Circuit premium
Most travellers who come to Pokhara have one thing in mind: trekking the Annapurna Circuit. This is a famous trek that runs through the Annapurna Mountain Range in Nepal and can take anywhere between 8-25 days to complete. But that’s not what brought me to Pokhara; I had neither the gear nor the time (nor […]

A Day Trip to Malbork: Visiting the Biggest Castle in the World! premium
We were sure on a roll with side trips during our visit to Gdansk. Aside from taking a day trip to Sopot and Gdynia, we also planned a day trip to Malbork to visit the biggest castle in the world. Because when it’s just a short train ride away, why wouldn’t you visit! So how […]

Soaking in the Magic of Gdansk premium
Gdansk was our fourth destination in Poland after visits to Krakow, Wroclaw and Poznan, and this northern harbour city by the Baltic Sea definitely had a bit of a different feel. To me, Gdansk felt less like a city where you tick off main attractions and more like a place where you need to wander and slowlly […]

72 Hours in Düsseldorf: The Perfect Weekend Break You Haven’t Considered! premium
After countless visits to Germany, I finally made it to Düsseldorf, a city whose name I was familiar with, yet a city that I had managed to avoid. For some reason I had gotten it into my head that I wouldn’t like Düsseldorf; my reasoning was that Germany has plenty of charming towns with castles […]

Glasgow for Foodies: Where to Eat & What to Eat! premium
You know you’re in a foodie city when you spend more time hopping from restaurant to bar to cafe to brewery than you do sightseeing, and Glasgow is just that kind of place! I’ve managed to visit this city twice in the span of a year, and when I think back on these trips, I covered […]

A Road Trip to the Cowal Highland Gathering in Dunoon premium
At the end of August, I found myself back in Scotland for my third visit to this beautiful country and lucky for me, this trip coincided with two things I had been wanting to experience for a while: one was seeing the glens covered in purple heather and the other was attending the Highland Games! […]

A Day Trip to Sopot, the Charming Town by the Baltic Sea premium
We visited Gdansk in the middle of summer, so we knew a day trip to Sopot was a must! This seaside town on the shores of the Baltic Sea is a popular resort destination, and its proximity to Gdansk – just a 15-minute train ride away – makes it the perfect beach day destination…even if […]

A Few Fun, Tasty & Lesser-Known Things to do in Cape Town! premium
Oh, Cape Town! Is there a city with a more beautiful skyline? This was our second time back in Cape Town, so while Sam and I had done a few of the highlights, there was still plenty left to see, eat and do! This time around we tacked on one week in Cape Town after our trip […]

Highlights from a visit to Poznan! premium
Poznan was the third stop of our month-long trip through Poland and like Krakow and Wroclaw before it, the city proved to be yet another wonderful surprise – though, at this point, I’m not sure why we were even surprised! I seriously think Poland may be one of the most underrated countries for travel in […]

Your Wroclaw Travel Guide for the Perfect Weekend Escape premium
First things first, let’s start with the name: Wroclaw. This city’s name has baffled many a tourist and surely also left many a local shaking their head in disapproval. Wroclaw is not pronounced raw-claw, but rather vrots-whaf. Confusing, I know. Tricky name aside, Wroclaw turned out to be a yet another beautiful city to explore, […]
