A Guide On What to See and Do in Aachen, Germany

As the plane’s wheels touched down on Cologne’s runway, I peered excitedly at our itinerary for the next few days. Assigned the task of exploring two of Germany’s westernmost points – Aachen and Monschau – I scanned the highlights of our long weekend away. A country that prides itself on its ‘Winterzauber’ (Winter Magic), we were set to explore two magical parts of Germany, including…

Monschau Christmas Market: Everything You Need to Know for the Perfect Festive Break

There is something dreamlike about Monschau and its Christmas Market. A historic town nestled in the rolling forests of Germany’s Eifel region, Monschau is a place where time stands still.

A Digital Detox in Vienna

It was a warm, Sunday afternoon in Lanzarote and we were on the hunt for a pay phone. Armed with a few pesetas (the Euro was yet to arrive), we hurried down the beach, nervous that we might miss our special Sunday night call.

A Guide to Autumn in Provence

When I was fifteen, my French teacher described an illustrious autumn she’d once spent in France. Apparently forgetting that she was stood inside a glorified port-a-cabin – the heady mix of teenage angst and Charlie Red surrounding her – Madame Lawless was elsewhere; transported back to a lavender-scented autumn in Provence, circa 1978. ‘It’s during this time that I learnt that French skill– L’Art de…
