Whenever I have an opportunity to travel, I try to make the most out of it. So instead of visiting one country, I try to squeeze in another. That way, I see and discover more. Copenhagen in Denmark and Malmö in Sweden are just 35 minutes away by train from each other. Seriously, this calls for a combined trip! So that’s exactly what I did, two cities in one trip! Both cities are quite different despite their closeness but both offer plenty of things to keep busy on a typical Southern Scandinavia trip.
London’s famous red double decker buses are a major attraction in the city. I personally like riding the bus in my every day life in London but I particularly like some lines such as the line 11. Why? Simply because it goes via many of London’s best attractions such as Big Ben, Trafalgar Square and St Pauls Cathedral. I get to the first row on the upper floor to enjoy an amazing view on one of the oldest bus routes of London, as it started operating in 1906. This is by far the cheapest alternative for a London sightseeing bus.
Today, hundreds of students will flock the halls of University of West London (UWL) to be honoured for their hard work in front of their teachers, families and loved ones. Unfortunately, I will not be part of their happy day which is also supposed to be my own happy day. The day when I will feel like my hard work as postgraduate student is finally celebrated. I chose not to be there for many reasons. But mainly because University of West London took me down to hell in the 3 months preceding this big day. Now, I am finally opening up on this issue but also on the unfair treatment I have received from them.
Do you ever feel kind of homesick from a place you have never been to? Well, it’s a very strange feeling I have been experiencing ever since my interest for travelling started growing. Some cities I just absolutely loved before even visiting (and I still love them even more after my trip).
One of the greatest things about travel, is the desire that I get to try exclusive and traditional experiences in the country where I am. For my first trip to Scotland, I took a flight to Edinburgh where I spent a great week-end enjoying the capital and its Scottish treats. But to make my experience even more local, I took a special overnight sleeper train back to London. It was a majestic overnight trip on The Caledonian Sleeper.
I’m in love with Berlin! It is such a nice city with so many things to do. It is very easy to enjoy it and have fun as people are generally friendly and out going. I think there are many ways to enjoy the city and here’s a little plan to have the perfect day in Berlin based on my preferences and my own experience. It is a fairly light plan but definitely a rich and fun one!
I recently went on a 48 hours trip to Bremen, in Germany. It is probably not a place you have heard of but many hidden treasures in the city have had local and international impact. If I told you Bremen is home to the famous Becks beer, it is also home to the oldest wine in all of Germany and home to one of the finest UNESCO World Heritage Sites. I think you start so far putting Bremen on the map… Well, honestly, before visiting, I never heard of Bremen. But I am lucky to find cheap flights from London. So I booked my ticket and literally went on a treasure hunt!
From the Royal Mile to the heights of Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh is a city that has a lot to offer. I was lucky to visit during the last week-end of July, few days before the mythical Fringe Festival begins. I am somehow unlucky to miss it as it is one of the biggest events in the United Kingdom. However, during my 3-days-trip, I had the opportunity to visit some of the main touristy attractions in Edinburgh combining them with my own tastes and my own preferences on things to do and where to stay. So this, is my Edinburgh!
Costa del Sol is a region of Spain that knows very well how to combine culture and beach holidays. I visited many times due to the close proximity with Morocco and I can say that I am always surprised by it. Costa del Sol is indeed just few kilometres away from Morocco when visiting by ferry and just over one hour away by plane from Casablanca. To kick off my summer holidays, I visited few weeks ago and here’s my suggestion of 5 towns to visit in Costa del Sol.
As I was recently randomly browsing flights, I found a cheap flight to a rather expensive destination. I booked a return London-Copenhagen for £15 only! That’s cheaper than my transfer from London to Luton Airport, from where I flew. Anyway, I took this short 48 hours city-break in Copenhagen just to reconnect with a destination I absolutely love but also get to do things a bit off the touristy trail. I visited Copenhagen back in 2013 for 5 days and I got to do the touristy stuff, from the Little Mermaid to the colourful Nyhavn.
