Where to find deer in London.

Did you know there are wild deer living in London? Richmond Park is a massive park in the outer zones of London, and there are wild deer roaming throughout the park – if you can spot them! We hired bikes to ride around, so we found the deer pretty easily, but if you’re walking, it […]

How to spend winter in London.

Sadly it rarely snows in London, so the white winter you’re dreaming of is unlikely to happen in the capital. But London is still gorgeous in the winter, and here are a few of my favourite spots in London (including a few “secret” instagrammable locations).

The prettiest town in the world.

I’m sure Hallstatt, Austria, will forever be one of my favourite places that I’ve ever visited, because it was so incredibly beautiful. We went in the middle of winter, hoping for a beautiful snow-covered village, but sadly there was no snow! The day we went was a bit rainy, misty and miserable… and yet Hallstatt […]

A fairytale castle in Germany.

Ever wanted to see the Disney castle in real life? This is it. In winter of 2015 we visited Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany. It’s the real life inspiration for the Disney princess castle. And although it looks pretty ancient, it’s actually only a couple of hundred years old.

A walk through the British countryside.

In November my flatmate, Helen, from London took me and our other flatmate, Keziah, to her hometown near Middlesborough, in the North of England. There we walked to Roseberry Topping, a tall hill near Great Ayton. Fun fact, Great Ayton was the childhood home of Captain Cook, the first British guy to discover Australia.

Rooftop exploring in Stockholm, Sweden.

We had a quick stop in Stockholm, which I discovered in the short time I was there to be such a lovely city! I definitely want to go back. But instead of the usual city tour, we opted for the Stockholm Rooftop tour, where we climbed onto the roof of the Parliament Building at Gamla […]

May Ball Fireworks in Cambridge, England.

The Cambridge May Ball fireworks were such a magical experience, and if you ever have the opportunity to be in Cambridge in June (not May), I’d highly recommend it! We had a few days in Cambridge, but Cambridge is also an ideal day trip from London (which I’ve also done!). It’s a university city, with […]

Wandering the old town of Tallinn, Estonia.

We had one day in Tallinn, a portside city with a beautiful medieval old town. The old town was rammed full of tourists, but there’s a reason for that! It has pretty pastel buildings within a medieval wall that’s still mostly standing to this day. The town is often overrun with tour groups coming in […]

Two days in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

My first impressions of St Petersburg were the crumbling soviet era apartment buildings near the port. We arrived by ship, and had a guided tour take us straight to Peterhof Palace and gardens. The sun was shining down on the glittering gold of the palace as we entered the grounds. It was a warm day, […]

Feed reindeer in Finland.

I only had limited time in Finland, and while I’m sure Helsinki is a beautiful city, sometimes you need to get out of the city! So we booked a day trip from Helsinki to the Nuuksio national park, where they have semi-domestic reindeer you can feed.

Minimalist Glastonbury Pack List.

If, like me, you’re travelling a long distance to Glastonbury, or taking the coach, or just don’t want to carry a mountain of stuff with you from the carpark to the tent, then you’ll want to pack light.
