Surprised by the beauty of Pembrokeshire

If you haven’t been to Pembrokeshire, I highly recommend it, there are so many places to explore, we have lots of history and the most amazing beaches that you can stroll along at low tide. During the autumn months, you may be lucky enough to spot a seal with a cub or the dolphins playing in the coves.

Beauty around every corner in Luxembourg City

We were stunned at how photogenic Luxembourg City was. With its quaint cobbled streets, historic buildings, and views straight out of a fairytale, this picturesque city is full of charm. And visiting in October only added to the beauty of this place – the paths around the city and the Alzette river were lined with gorgeous autumnal colour!

Not even the rain spoils a day at Trebinje

It’s been raining in Trebinje for the past few days, and I actually don’t mind. When it rains the clouds slowly descend from the sky, blanketing the valley in a cover of fog. There’s a very peaceful and nostalgic ambience here, one that makes leaving feel much more bittersweet.

Strolling through the alleyways of Auray

Auray is a charming town, with cobbled streets and historic half-timbered houses, known particularly for its extremely picturesque harbour, Saint Goustan. Nowadays, it is a pleasant yachting harbour with an abundance of restaurants and bars at which to enjoy the lovely views.

A choo choo train ride into Knaresborough

It felt incredible to be out of the cramped London streets, and breathing real fresh air! We had been recommended some places nearby. A must visit was a place called Knaresborough. If you Google search Harrogate, you are sure to find a photo of a large train viaduct, with a quaint river running underneath.

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.

Douro Valley is the hippest place to be

All of a sudden, the Douro Valley in northern Portugal seems to have become the hippest place to be for wine lovers and everybody else. The landscape is truly breathtaking: rows after rows of lush green vines nestled on steep terraced hills along with small historic villages and imposing Quintas (wineries) sitting either directly on the riverbank or strewn high on the slopes.

Have a ‘Fika’ in Sigtuna, Sweden’s First City

I remember this day very vividly from last spring. It felt like I had literally spent my day in a hundred post cards – the kind of feeling you get when you are in a place too pretty to be true.
