Hallstatt is what I would call picture perfect. The village is situated on the edge of a lake and is surrounded by mountains. When we arrived it was also snowing! It felt like we were in a postcard. There is not much to do here but gawk at the beauty that surrounds you. We stayed in Hallstatt for one night before heading to Vienna. You can also do Hallstatt in a day trip from Salzburg […]
Christmas is my favourite time of the year and London celebrates it spectacularly well. Coming from New Zealand I’m used to having a summer Christmas – beach, BBQ’s & jandals. Now that I live in the Northern hemisphere I can sing along to christmas carols like ‘walking in a Winter Wonderland’ without feeling like a phoney.

It seems like a million years ago that I was sunning myself on the beautiful island that is Santorini. Wish I was back quad biking around all of the different towns, drinking delicious wine and taking in the view. 3 days was the perfect amount of time for us to enjoy Santorini. Below are my recommendations ! Enjoy 🙂

Our sailing trip around the Greek islands departed from Athens so we spent a few days there beforehand so we could make up our own minds. I’m so glad we went, Athens far surpassed my expectations.

So delicious and so cheap. Portugal is one of the most affordable countries to travel to in Europe, great for the budget traveler. You can travel here all year around due to the mild climate. We visited in April and spent the first […]
To break up our flight from New Zealand to London we stopped in Melbourne for a long weekend. I absolutely adore Melbourne. There is an abundance of culture, great eateries, amazing shopping and lovely green spaces. Normally before I go on holiday I do a lot of research to find out the best places to go but luckily for us we had friends and family take us to their favourite spots.
Stockholm was the destination of choice for one of my first long weekends away while living in LDN. Sweden’s gorgeous capital is situated on 14 islands connected by over 50 bridges. It’s a cosmopolitan place with both classical and modern architecture. Each neighbourhood is completely different and has their own distinct character.
