As travel bloggers we have stayed at a lot of hotels. So we know finding a hotel that leaves a lasting impression on you is a rare thing. We stayed at the Hotel Bergedorfer Hohe for two nights, and it really gave an insight into what Hamburg is about. From the welcoming staff to the picturesque surrounds, we really got to see a different side of Hamburg that will stay with us for a long time. Continue Reading
It has been our dream for a really long time to visit the Christmas Markets in Germany. So when we were invited back to Hamburg to experience them first hand through the Come to Hamburg project, we couldn’t say no. Most European cities have their own take on the markets but nothing compares to Germany. In Hamburg you will find Christmas Markets in different parts of the city, so of course we had to explore them all. Here is our guide. Continue Reading

On a recent trip abroad we had the opportunity to spend the day in Zurich, before boarding our flight back to the UK.

Ireland is the ultimate road trip destination. It is a country full of so much history and natural beauty. And the best way to see all this beauty is to rent a car and just drive. We happen to think one of Ireland’s most beautiful drives is the Ring of Kerry. The Ring of Kerry is a 111 mile coastal road that goes around the Iveragh Peninsula in Ireland. Technically it is not a ring but a horseshoe shape although some people start their Ring of Kerry journey in Killarney and make it a full circle. It is beautiful because you get to see a really rugged and beautiful coastal Ireland. This is the Ireland that the guide books gush about.

At the top of any Paris to do list is of course to see the Eiffel Tower. This 324 meter structure towers over Paris. Whether you are admiring the view from the top or you are walking around the city as it peeks out at you, you can’t help but feel that the Eiffel Tower is synonymous with Paris.

Although if you ask a Parisian you will find the reviews to be mixed. Continue Reading
