europe

History to boot and incredible variety is the main drawcard of Europe. From bustling cities like Berlin, London and Paris to picturesque seasides in the French Riviera, this is a continent I want to get back to as much as possible. 


Europe

Europe is truly my favourite continent. It’s charming. It’s historical. It has something for everyone. As an Aussie, the idea of hopping on a train for an hour or two and winding up in another country is entirely a novelty and I love it. 

Each country has its own unique charm, local language, traditions and cuisines. It is a literal smorgasbord of travelling fun. 

Visited: France, Spain, The UK, Monaco, Germany, Czech Republic, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, The Netherlands.

How to Have the Perfect Day Trip in Monaco

A day trip to Monaco is a fantastic idea for anyone who is paying a visit to the French Riviera for a holiday. Where else can you pay less than 2 Euros, hop on a bus and be in another country in an hour?

The Best Places to Go in Spain

The Best Places to Go in Spain

Spain is a country on most people's bucket lists and for good reason. I first visited Spain in 2013, when I wandered the laneways of Barcelona, drank Rioja region wine in Logrono and sampled some of the world's best food in San Sebastian. Ironically, I also got the...

A Week in the French Riviera

A Week in the French Riviera

I’m pretty sure my heart is still in the French Riviera. I’ve been back just over a month and I am still wistfully dreaming of the aqua-blue Mediterranean Sea and the quaint towns dotted along the coast. Visiting in the shoulder season of October was perfect as the...

Hygge in Copenhagen

Hygge in Copenhagen

Three days in Copenhagen is just enough time to really get a taste of that Danish hygge that makes this kingdom one of the happiest countries in the world.  So… what is hygge (pronounced hue-gah)? Well, the closest word in the English language is probably something...

The Thalys Explorer Project showed me how to get the most of my European holiday and now I'm sharing that awesome itinerary with you all! Thanks to my friends at Thalys, I learned just how easy it is to cram as much fun, food and sightseeing into five days as...

My All Time Favourite Things To Do In Brussels

My All Time Favourite Things To Do In Brussels

Brussels is sometimes slightly overlooked compared to some other European capitals, but it has a lot to offer with its Parisian style and beautiful architecture. It's also a great jumping off point to explore other amazing cities and towns in Belgium, like Flanders...

Getting Around Europe With Thalys

Getting Around Europe With Thalys

Thalys trains connect Europe better than ever before, making it possible to have breakfast in Brussels, lunch in Cologne, dinner in Paris, then spend the next day in Rotterdam. Five days, four countries. Sounds wild, right? To an Australian, especially – this sounds...

Four Days In London

Four Days In London

London is just wonderful. Despite the chilly weather and the often-seen grey sky, there are very few people (if any) that can dispute this city’s magical, unique vibe. From the theatre to the cool, funky cocktail bars, to the free museums and the art galleries, this...

Sachsenhausen: A Concentration Camp Memorial

Sachsenhausen: A Concentration Camp Memorial

Walking up to the grey, barbed walls of Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp a leaden feeling starts to make its way into my guts. Here I am, freely walking into what was once a Nazi concentration camp, mentally steeling myself for the inevitable horror stories I am about...

Four Days In Berlin

Four Days In Berlin

I absolutely adore Berlin. This beautiful, strong and historic city has a gritty, grainy, alternate underbelly that makes it ever so appealing. In Berlin, you'll find heartbreaking war memorials, bizarre cafes, an amazing assortment of cuisines, loads of museums and...

Following In A Monk’s Footsteps in Prague

Following In A Monk’s Footsteps in Prague

Exploring the Strahov Monastery in Prague was not on my list of things to do when researching the UNESCO World Heritage Listed city, but a few people when I arrived in town mentioned it to me and I am eternally grateful that I added it to my list of attractions to...

A Sombre Visit To The Anne Frank Huis in Amsterdam

A Sombre Visit To The Anne Frank Huis in Amsterdam

Visiting the Anne Frank Huis is one of the most moving and best attractions to see in Amsterdam.  A mere half a day remains for me in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam, the wonderfully friendly city of canals and whirring bicycles. Nursing a fairly significant hangover...

Why I Love Berlin, Germany

Why I Love Berlin, Germany

“Ich bin ein Berliner” US President JFK famously exclaimed in the divided Cold War Berlin of 1963. Sure, technically JFK’s speech was more about living in the free world in the face of a nuclear arms race, the Iron Curtain and the division of East and West Berlin via...
