Sightseeing in Amsterdam without a plan

By | October 13th, 2015|Holland|

So Amsterdam, a European capital which welcomes around 7 million visitors a year, and which has so much to see and do ... yet I turn up in the Dutch capital having planned almost zilch.  Well done me!  This is Amsterdam without a plan! It's very unlike me not to have a plan when travelling.  I [...]

3 reasons to Love Noord – Ale, Art and Cinema

By | October 6th, 2015|Holland|

I love Noord! Now I shall not confess to being an Amsterdam expert, for I have only just spent a few days exploring the city for the very first time this past month. However, even though I only spent a few short days in Amsterdam, more than one of those days was spent exploring glorious [...]

ClinkNOORD – A new kind of social travel experience

By | September 29th, 2015|Holland, Hostel Life|

ClinkNOORD, now that's how you open a hostel! What a weekend! Confession --> Before last week I had never visited Amsterdam before.

By | July 8th, 2015|Denmark|

Oddly, you don't find Bakken listed in too many Danish guidebooks as a 'must see' attraction, and in terms of amusement parks, Tivoli is probably seen by most visitors as [...]

By | June 30th, 2015|Denmark|

Upon my first visit to Copenhagen I didn't really pay too much attention to the Rundetårn. I must have passed by it at least three or four times on my way to and from other locations within the city, but for some reason it never once crossed my mind to poke my head inside the [...]

By | June 23rd, 2015|Denmark|

Located in the Nørrebro district of Copenhagen lies Superkilen, a huge great public park, made up of 3 separate park type zones.  I touched on Superkilen very briefly last year in my 10 cheap things to do in Copenhagen post, but having just visited Copenhagen for a second time in 12 months, I thought I'd go [...]

By | June 4th, 2015|Italy, Video|

London to Venice by train? With no luggage? No luggage no problem? No, not exactly, there were definitely a few mini problems that came about through having 'lost' my luggage, but on the whole my journey from London to Venice by train with no luggage was still a lot of fun.
