Seville

Seville

Scrumptious food, beautiful weather, stunning architecture and Tinto de Verano all day long! Seville no doubt made it to my top-3 city break destinations. I visited in the latter part of the summer, a great time to squeeze in a quick weekender to prolong the fading season with a few more delicious rays. On arrival, [...]

Seven Hanging Valleys Trail

Seven Hanging Valleys Trail

This trail takes you on a stunningly beautiful hike along the Algarve's coastline, skimming the cliff-edge the entire way, treating your eyes to views for more or less a four hour adventure - just short of 8 miles.   We decided to lengthen our trail slightly by starting at Algar Seco (usually the walk would begin or end at Centeanes).

Heritage Suites is a boutique gem located just far enough from Pub Street [...]

Zürich

Zürich

I would describe Zürich as a polished metropolis, fused with a stunning burst of rural scenery. The buzzy city is situated next to serene Lake Zürich, set against a majestic backdrop of snow-capped mountains. It really is a beautiful place. My weekender began at the train station, where me and my beau made the short 10 [...]
