Driving To Venice

Driving To Venice

On a slightly unusual trip we decided to ask: How easy is it to drive to Venice? How The Hell Do You Drive to Venice? Being a road trip blog we couldn’t let something like an island defeat us. However, the first time we were in Italy we thought that it would be too difficult because we had read lots of different people complaining about the process. We heard that parking there is insanely difficult. We heard that the system was completely…

Taking in the Cinque Terre – All 5 in 1 Day

Taking in the Cinque Terre – All 5 in 1 Day

The Cinque Terre is as beautiful as it is rugged and it can be seen in a day. But, it is a bit of a challenge! Most people who travel to the Cinque Terre stay there for at least a few days so that they can fully explore all of the five towns. However, this was the second time there for us and we realised the first time that we could see it all relatively quickly. There are, however, a…

Is It Safe To Travel Abroad?

Is It Safe To Travel Abroad?

Is travelling abroad really as dangerous as it’s made out to be, or is it all just taken out of context?   News today really is global, events that we wouldn’t have been able to hear about before are now everywhere. When coupled with globalisation we come to an interesting dilemma for tourists about safety. Is it really dangerous to travel to that country, or are people just overreacting? Well, let’s find out how safe it is with the help…

We Will Rock You – Skalne Miasto and Bastei in a day

We Will Rock You – Skalne Miasto and Bastei in a day

“It’s only three hours from Berlin…this is an experience we’re never going to forget, just take it all in”. (Overheard American tourists) We spent our pre-easter weekend between a rock city and a hard place, Skalne Miasto (Czech Republic) and Bastei (Germany). Two of the more unique places that we’ve seen in Europe, not just in terms of there being very few things like it, but just in the movie-perfect scenery that’s available. There is also another attraction close-by called …

Scotland Part 3 -Wildlings

Scotland Part 3 -Wildlings

Scotland is pretty mystical, and nowhere more so than the Isle of Skye. This is probably one of the places that everyone has already been to or wants to go to at some point in time and I could see why. I’d heard about the fairy pools for a long time, and had seen some pretty amazing pictures of what looked like big waterfalls with an epic Lord of the Rings style mountain in the background. We knew that it…

Scotland Part 2 -North of the Wall

Scotland Part 2 -North of the Wall

European cities don’t usually have much of an effect on me anymore, they are all very nice and very pretty (for the most part), but even Florence didn’t seem to make me go “wow” like so many people said that it would…although that’s perhaps because I’m some uncultured heathen. Edinburgh, however, was truly great. We were there at the same time as the Fringe. Although we didn’t have time to go and actually see any of the acts that were…

Scotland Part 1 – We’re going to build a great wall

Scotland Part 1 – We’re going to build a great wall

One of the things that I think most of us are guilty of, “travellers” or not, is not exploring your own country. Yes, it isn’t as romantic as jetting off into the sunset to visit some far-flung part of the world, but often you can find the things that you are looking for just next door. That is very much the case with this trip. When I was living in the UK I hardly did any of the so-called “touristy”…
