Handy tips for Oktoberfest in Munich.

It’s two weeks until I go to Munich for Oktoberfest opening weekend 2017, and I thought I’d look back on my photos from Oktoberfest last year, so I can start planning for what to wear, which tents to go to, and how much money to save, because it gets quite expensive! Last year I visited […]

Exploring Copenhagen by boat.

A lazy Sunday in Copenhagen started by heading to Torvehallerne, the food and flower markets near Nørreport, for a coffee. They were just setting up for the day – there were vans bringing fresh flowers glistening with water, and tall Danish girls arranging their pastries and bread. We wandered down to Strøget, the shops still […]

Hiring bikes and cycling around Copenhagen.

Looking for some alternative things to do in Copenhagen once you’ve crossed off Nyhavn and the Little Mermaid? Because my parents are living in Copenhagen right now I’ve visited them a couple of times. Copenhagen has turned into my new favourite city, and I wanted to check out some of the alternative things to do […]

My summer in Berlin.

I swear it just started, but summer seems to be disappearing before my very eyes. And while everyone’s told me Berlin summer is amazing, I think this summer the weather hasn’t been that great. There’s been a lot of rainy days and storms. While I’m hoping for a pretty amazing late summer, I thought I’d […]

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 […]

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.
