5 Things… Europe Is Best At

5 Things… Europe Is Best At

From amazing cathedrals to stunning beaches, thrilling nightlife and mountains peaks straight out of the national geographic, here are the 5 things that Europe is best at. 1.

My Baltic Adventure – Part 4 – Valga

My Baltic Adventure – Part 4 – Valga

In what felt like a pleasing circle, I once again found myself waiting on a railway station platform early in the morning, this time I was heading to Valga.

My Baltic Adventure – Part 2 – Ambling Around Tallinn

My Baltic Adventure – Part 2 – Ambling Around Tallinn

In this post I promised I’d find a weird park, get confused for a German, nearly get on the wrong train and get caught out in a thunderstorm, it was by all accounts the perfect day in Tallinn. First off, some cities are just built for three-day weekends and Tallinn is certainly one of them, there’s just the right amount of things to do for three days. There’s plenty of old buildings to explore, a couple of museums and a…
