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). Walking towards the cliff edge you’ll spot the walking path inviting you to the cliff, with wooden fences [...]

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.

This city boasts fabulous food, museums and art galleries galore – and not to forget full of stylishly sleek inhabitants plucked straight from a Massimo Dutti ad campaign. [...]

La Maddalena

La Maddalena

La Maddalena is the name given to an archipelago located off the northern coast of the Italian island of Sardinia, this area really is Europe’s very own hidden paradise, unspoiled by floods of tourists yet enjoyed by many who love exploring on the water. This year I just had to make sure La Maddalena was [...]

Orvieto

Orvieto

An Italian Wedding Orvieto is a scenic hour or so train from Rome; sandwiched between the eternal city and elegant Florence. It is a quaint Italian town that looks down over rolling green hills and picturesque meadows from its majestic position on top of the hill.I stayed in a beautiful abandoned monetary now turned hotel, [...]

Rome

Rome

The eternal city; a cobbled mesh of picturesque streets opening up to beautiful piazzas and street side-cafes. Once the capital of the world, this ancient city is steeped in heritage, but for me Rome has everything. From gorgeous food to bars, ancient moments and ample places to set up for some people watching, it really [...]
