Driving the South Coast of Iceland

Driving the South Coast of Iceland

Iceland is a beautiful country. We visited in September last year, and one of the highlights was driving the South Coast of Iceland. Of course, you can’t hope to see all of this magical country in one day. However, driving the South Coast is about as close as you can get. You’ll see mountains, glaciers, […]

Baku

Exploring Baku’s Old Town

Looking for an East meets West experience? Look no further than Baku, the capital city of the ancient state of the Shirvanshahs. We recently spent three days exploring the Azeri city. I was surprised to find just how European it was – although the Middle Eastern/Continental Asian influence is obvious. My favorite destination in the […]

Gori

Visiting Gori, Georgia

While it is surrounded by picturesque mountain scenery, Gori, Georgia isn’t much to look at. In fact, there isn’t much going for Gori at all. Despite a long history – first being mentioned in the sixth century – Gori is famous for one thing. It is the birthplace of Ioseb Besarionis dze Jughashvili. You might […]

Kazimierz

Exploring the Kazimierz District, Krakow

One of the many surprises of my trip to Krakow was finding that much of the city escaped unscathed during World War Two. My visit to Warsaw had revealed a city devastated by the war, and I was expecting Krakow to be the same. I was wrong. I was completely surprised to find a mainly […]

Galapagos

Guest Post: A Glimpse of the Galápagos Islands

Lets be honest – how many places are there on earth where you can wander amongst puzzled wildlife, who have no apparent fear of you? Welcome to the Galápagos Islands. I haven’t travelled to the island destination myself, but my sister and her husband visited the Galápagos Islands earlier this year and loved every second […]

Madrid

Two Days in Madrid

We arrived in Madrid about 1PM, after catching the high speed AVE train from Barcelona. By the way, I’d highly recommend the train service over flying. For some weird reason, the day of our trip, it was only 5 euros more to go in the Premiere cabin as opposed to tourist class. We ended up […]

Barcelona

Two Days in Barcelona

Spain was never been top of my list for visiting. There isn’t any reason why not – it might just be that I don’t know a lot about the country. Spanish history is a topic that has evaded me over the years, and I wasn’t familiar with any famous landmarks in Spain. I knew there […]

Vienna

24 Hours in Vienna

To finish off 2017, all I wanted to do was to visit a Christmas market in Europe… namely, Vienna. The ones at the St. Regis in Dubai really didn’t cut it. To have some snow would have been the greatest Christmas gift, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers. Matt wasn’t even supposed to go to […]
