I know it’s a bit early for some, but if you want to get away for Halloween and experience some of the beautiful locations Europe has to offer, then planning really starts now. This is my top 5 Halloween European destinations which incorporates everything I love about the holiday, fun and frights, ghosts and things that go bump in the night! Where I could, I’ve also added some webcams so you can actually view the locations before you go. 1. Bran Castle, Romania The first on my list had to be Bran Castle with its links to Dracula, though […]
I mentioned in my last post that I love statues… I wasn’t kidding, and with Italy being abundant in glorious statues, what’s a girl to do? Take as many photos as she can! Here are just a few snaps I took which are from Rome, Florence and Lucca, hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Now, I’ve been to Rome once before, 10 years ago and although the landmarks have remained the same the amount of tourists milling about the place hasn’t! So when we got to Rome (about 5pm) we decided to have a relaxing evening and set out early in the morning. Armed with our map and kitted out in trainers (very important if you’ve planning a day of sight seeing) we left the apartment at 6.30am, jumped on the Metro and 5 minutes later we were walking down Viale Manzoni and onto Via Labicana heading towards the Colosseum. Apart from a few […]
Having just returned from our trip away in Italy, we were amazed at the ease in which we managed to maintain our vegan diet. It wasn’t always quite as straight forward as I would have liked but we live and learn. Breakfasts where simple enough, we were staying at a lovely hotel that had a breakfast buffet, so we could load up on fresh fruit, italian bread with marmalade and a cheeky espresso or 2. There was also a selection of cereals, but you never know… plus it was only cow’s milk available (in some hotels you might just need […]
For our 6 day Italy trip we opted to go with hand luggage only, which not only saved us forty pounds each for no hold baggage (saving of 160 sterling pounds in total for the 2 of us), but gave us extra time on our actual holiday as we didn’t need to stand in a huge queue to check our baggage in (we had checked in on line and had our boarding passes printed out) and there was no waiting around at the other end to pick up our suitcases from the carousel! It also made travelling around from city […]
We’ve caught the travel bug again, was bound to happen when you start looking into possible locations for a holiday and there is location after location that you just feel you have to go to! It’s only 20 days until we go off on our Italy adventure, not that I’m on a holiday countdown or anything! I’ve seen a few other locations which I think would be perfect for us to venture out and see in the next few years, so I’ll be keeping my little back pack to hand and be ready to just book it and go. There’s […]
