Willkommen im Berchtesgaden!

Meet the enchanting mountain town of Berchtesgaden, Germany. 

Pints at Oktoberfest

Somehow the planets aligned for our short visit to Germany last month. Oktoberfest was on. 

Shakespeare's Farm

Mary Arden was Shakespeare's gran, and this is the 17th century farm where he grew up.

8 Hours in Florence and Pisa

On our third and last day in Italy (here's our awesome day 1 visiting family and day 2 spent in the gorgeous italian riviera) we found ourselves with four hours to kill before we needed to head to the airport in Pisa. We drove from Genoa to Florence, where we stopped for a focaccia at a lively little place where the owners, a married couple, sang and danced as they worked at a furious pace to serve all the tourists customers gathering around their counter. We washed down our breads with their local table wine, which turned out to be both outstanding and incredibly alcoholic. No doubt the former a causality of the latter. Proof of that is in the last picture.

Cinque Terre in a Day

Day two of our adventures in Italy started with a two-hour forty-five minutes' ride zigzagging along the coast of the riviera to get to the Northenmost of the Cinque Terre: Monterosso. (Here's day 1 meeting our long lost relatives in Italy and day 3 running about florence and taking silly pictures in pisa *bonus: funny animated GIF of me....)

Family Feasts in Genoa

Genoa is probably the most underrated city in Italy.

It's Pimm's O'Clock!

What do you do when you have two friends visiting you in London and they have already seen all the touristy landmarks?

Why, you go on a daytime pub crawl, of course!

Super Easy Marinated Chicken Skewers

There is something called a Great British Summer. It typically involves three weeks of good weather a year.

Pirouettes at Stonehenge

Who made it? Why did they make it? How did they do it?

The Roman Baths, Bath

When Anna and I returned from our amazing trip around the Balkans, we decided we needed to do some sightseeing in England too. We'd been sunbathing in Hyde Park, walking around all the famous landmarks in Central and West London and even been to bars and dancing in Camden.

Turquoise Seas of Korčula

Korčula is without doubt the most beautiful island town on the Adriatic. Hell, in all of Europe.

Chilling Out in Hvar, Croatia

Arriving in Hvar was fun, not just because from the onset we could see it was full of the young & free but also because the catamaran ride that took us there involved a 6 year old girl who kept slapping and poking Anna non-stop. See? Fun.

Delicious and Nutritious Nutella Protein Powder Pancakes

I love experimenting with pancakes. I've so far managed to make the fluffiest ever (flour-free) pancakes and today I managed to make thick, stackable pancakes that are super delicious, nutritious (16g of Protein!!!) and filling.

Fairytale Town of Split

Whether you stay in the Old Town or explore further afield, Split is an amazing spot for a weekend away.

Dubrovnik Sunshine

Dubrovnik is like a magical hidden city, a harbour with tantalising lights shimmering in the distance. 

48 Hours in Montenegro

Insane views, crazy blue waters and mysterious Monasteries lie hidden in Montenegro.

Unearthing Sarajevo's History

Our second day in Sarajevo was accompanied with the realisation that we had just spent a night at the wrong airbnb house.

It's a Long Road to Sarajevo

Bosnia is an amazing country to visit for the scenery, but its capital Sarajevo is full of history.


Queensland Beach Towns

A little bit over one year ago some friends and went on a Queensland road trip from Brisbane to Cairns. These are some pics from our quick step through the Town of 1770, Agnes Water and our day visit to Lady Musgrave Island.


Learning to Sail in the Solent with First Class Sailing

I have to admit that even though I'm sceptical about online competitions I harbour secret hopes for winning every time I enter one. Well, recently I won one. Big time.


Navigating Lake Titicaca

Imagine living in an island handmade out of thousands of dried bundled reeds. The Uros people do just that, on the highest sailable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca.

Discovering Machu Picchu

There's a deeply mystical land nested 2.5km above sea level in the Urubamba Valley, South of Peru.


Deep Canyon in Arequipa

Arequipa might be the "White City" (it's built with Limestone), but it's also the home of the deepest Canyon.


Mont Saint Michel: A Weekend in Medieval France

I've been obsessed with medieval castles for as long as I can remember, so when our friends in Rennes asked us to go and pay them a visit, we replied with a quick and resounding YES.
