48 hours in New York City

As part of our adventure to the US, we decided to spend 48 hours in New York City! We’ve both visited before and so we knew it would be the perfect place to put us in the festive mood!

Christmas in Washington DC

Day two in Washington DC and jetlag raised its ugly head. Rather than lay awake, staring at the ceiling for a few hours, we decided to ‘carpe diem’ and visit Lincoln Memorial before the crowds set in.

Seville: the land of flamenco, tapas and terrifying marriage proposals

I have just got back from four amazing days in Seville; the city that has knocked Barcelona off the top spot as my favourite European city. It is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been and I dare you to go and not fall in love. For one, it’s filled with the most amazing buildings, like the well known Seville Cathedral and Real…

Bucket List Let Downs

After reading a recent article by The New Yorker’s Rebecca Mead, Kicking the Bucket List, it got us thinking about our own bucket list let downs and why steering clear of some of the guide books ‘Top 10s’ is probably a good idea. To prove a point, here’s a round up of our Top 5 bucket list let downs: 1) Vatican, Rome: Now, it may just…
