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 [...]

Stockholm

Stockholm

A picture perfect archipelago of 14 islands, linked by a series of bridges overlooking serene waters. Stockholm is another perfect choice weekend getaway for summer or winter.

From gorgeous food to bars, ancient moments and ample places to set up for some people watching, it really [...]

Lisbon

Lisbon

Sun, old cobbled streets, iconic trams and most importantly ridiculously scrumptious food. For me, Lisbon has everything and I can’t wait until the next time I get to visit this incredible city. My visit was a long weekender, exploring the city via foot and taking a couple of trips to neighbouring sites and a nearby [...]

Suffolk

Suffolk

An unassuming escape for those looking for peace, beautiful surroundings and nature. Suffolk is only a short distance to travel to achieve what you might find on an idyllic escape abroad, minus the scorching sunshine of course. My escape began in Cratfield, a village in northern Suffolk with a minute population of under 300. With [...]
