Weekend Guide: Düsseldorf

Recently I headed off to Düsseldorf with my family for a short but sweet weekend, arriving on Friday night and leaving on Monday evening. It might not be the most obvious choice for a getaway, being overshadowed by cities such as Berlin and Munich however the appeal of Düsseldorf shouldn’t be underestimated! We stayed in the NH…

Weekend Guide: Krakow

Krakow is somewhere that I’ve always wanted to visit; I’m a quarter Polish so I’ve been interested to see where some of my ancestry is from. In January I finally visited with three university friends for a ‘beat the January blues’ getaway. We flew out from London Stansted and rented a 2 bed apartment which was located just…

What to do and see in Berlin

Let’s take a trip down memory lane… Back in the glory days of January 2015 when I was still living a glorious student life, my housemates and I decided to take a little trip over to Berlin before starting a new semester. Just like all of my other mini-breaks, it was of course a cheap…

We chose Split because it seemed to be the perfect mixture of a city/beach break that we were looking for – we wanted the flexibility of being able to relax on the…

A long weekend in Dublin

Dublin has to be in my top three favourite city breaks. This city has everything I look for when booking a weekend getaway: enough history, culture and points of interest to fill up the daytime whilst there is a varied and lively nightlife to experience the city after dark. It certainly didn’t disappoint! Firstly, let’s…
