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.

Well, let’s find out how safe it is with the help…

Your Native English Just Won’t Be Good Enough

Your Native English Just Won’t Be Good Enough

When I first started travelling abroad I made a huge mistake that dramatically changed my quality of life. It’s all to do with being a native English speaker, but not being able to communicate. The problem is two-fold and it’s important. If you are going on holiday to “Europe” then you should think about whether it’s worth learning a few phrases in the language of the country(ies) you are going to. If not, then it will definitely be worth thinking…

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 …

Paris has got quite the reputation for itself. The city of love, culture and cuisine. All of these things are summed up best on one specific night of the year – New Year’s eve. Now, having finally experienced New Year’s eve in several different places around the world, I feel that I am suitably qualified to comment on whether it is actually worth going to the world’s most romantic city on the world’s most romantic day. It is, without doubt, a…

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…
