In May, my sister and I went on a 2 week trip to Banff and Jasper national parks. We decided not to hire a car due to costs and the fact that neither of us drive much anymore. Whilst having a car would have helped in some places, exploring the parks without one is actually easier than you’d expect. Here’s everything you need to know about getting around Banff and Jasper national parks without a car.
Edinburgh is a city packed full of charisma, charm and character. Home to medieval alleys and a fairytale castle, it’s a city begging to be explored. Luckily, there are so many lovely places to stay regardless of your budget and tastes. We stayed at The Caledonian – a hotel with an intriguing history and a timeless elegance.
Falling for Dubrovnik was inevitable. Famously described as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’, it’s hard not to be captivated by this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site. Whether you’re visiting for a week or just passing through, here are a few things that should definitely be on your ‘To Do List’.
In September last year, my sister and I went on a P&O cruise around the Norwegian fjords with our granddad. We sailed from Southampton up to Stavanger, Flåm, Olden and Bergen. In case you’re considering doing a cruise around the fjords, I’ve put together this post with all the details of our itinerary, including what to see and do in each destination.
Venice is surrounded by a number of beautiful and unique islands which make up the Venetian Lagoon. These islands have a very different feel to Venice and each one has its own distinct identity. After years of talking about going back to see the islands, I decided to book a surprise trip for my sister’s birthday in September. We had seen so many beautiful photos of Burano and decided to spend a day exploring this rainbow coloured island.
With its honey-coloured Georgian architecture and iconic streets, Bath has a timeless beauty. It’s one of our favourite cities in the UK and it’s only an hour’s drive from my parents’ house so it was the perfect place to take my Dad to celebrate his 60th birthday. We spent the night at the Francis Hotel, a beautiful Grade 1 listed hotel which exudes charm and charisma.
With its winding cobbled streets, local shops, lively cafes and street artists, Montmartre is the epitome of French character. Most visitors head to Montmartre to see the Basilique du Sacré Coeur, the Place du Tertre and of course, Moulin Rouge. But there is so much more to this neighbourhood than these famous landmarks. Spend a day wandering around Montmartre and you’ll find a village that is quite unlike anywhere else in Paris.
There’s no doubt that Paris is a beautiful city. From the picturesque cobbled streets in Montmartre to the glamourous avenue des Champs-Élysées, it’s hard not to get swept up in the romanticism that surrounds the French capital. But to really appreciate Paris’ beauty you need to see it from above. Here are five of my favourite panoramic viewpoints.
Paris will always hold a special place in my heart. I first moved there in 2011 and it’s where my love of photography really began. Paris is a very photogenic city and there are so many beautiful places to see but here are a few of my favourite photography spots to capture the city’s most beautiful and iconic views.
