The Causeway Coastal Route is a real cliffhanger

It’s hard to believe that the breathtaking destinations along the way are so close to home. The route takes you past some of the countries spine tingling scenery and stunning views. The Gobbins, Torr Head and Whitepark Bay are just some of the places you can explore along the way, before visiting the famous Giants Causeway and the reason why this road trip found its name.

Donegal makes you stay longer than planned

Donegal is a cracking place to visit, if you are prepared to explore. It’s just a few hours from Belfast but a million miles away from life here. It’s raw, historical and full of basic home comforts. So if that’s your thing, then pack your big bag. You’ll likely stay longer than planned.

Bring watershoes when visiting Krka National Park

Before visiting Croatia, what came to mind was its beautiful coastlines dotted with enchanting old towns. What I found more unexpected after my recent trip was its jaw-droppingly stunning national parks, none more so than Krka National Park.

Situated around an hour and a half from Split, the park is perfect for a sunny day of hiking, swimming, exploring, and just enjoying nature.

Girona – Catalan gem with a French feel

It’s often overlooked as people head to the nearby beaches of Costa Brava. Which is a shame, as I think its well worth stopping to explore what Girona has to offer. It’s a charming city brimming with history and culture and has a little bit of a French feel. Not really surprising seeing as Girona is just 140km from the Spain/France border.

Bouillon, rural pearl in The Ardennes

An oasis in the heavily forested area of rural Belgium, Bouillon sits proudly on the edge of the river Semois. You won’t have to drive far into the town before catching a glimpse of the magical Bouillon Castle, which has presided over the streets below since the Middle Ages.

Killarney, maybe our favorite destination in Ireland

Killarney, maybe our favorite destination in Ireland. Why? First, the beautiful town in set at the doorstep of a national park with great forests, mountains and lakes for you to explore. It also has some of the best nightlife in the country, boasting many pubs for you to hear some great music. It also is the gateway to the Ring of Kerry, which is a driving route along the coast with some of the most spectacular views.

A Tourist in my own Country

Amidst rolling hills and meadows of the British countryside is The Cotswolds, a very famous place for people to explore. Secret gardens, charming rivers and lakes, and quaint architecture in the villages are all part and parcel of what to expect in the Cotswolds, and its location in the Thames Valley, just an hour or so away from London Paddington makes it one of the best getaways from urban life.

Update: The picturesque village Bibury that is taking you back in time to fairytales with dwarfs or with Harry Potter. Low windows, honey-coloured stone houses, enchant the eye and tickle the imagination.
