Slovakian Surprise | I Love Bratislava!

When I decided to make a quick stop in Bratislava en route to Romania, I had no idea what to expect. I knew nothing about Slovakia, and less than nothing about Bratislava! However, sometimes a little ignorance isn’t actually a bad thing. I only stayed in Bratislava for a short time, but it was undeniably […]

A ‘Before Sunrise’ Inspired Day in Vienna

After a day of unpleasantness in an Austrian hospital, I was feeling completely and utterly down in the dumps. My feelings towards Vienna were not exactly warm and fuzzy, but I really did try to find something, anything, that I could love about Vienna. As it happens, one of my favourite movies, Before Sunrise – a […]

Got The Blues In Vienna

After an eventful time in Kiruna, I was looking forward to spending a bit of time wandering the streets of some pretty European cities and chilling out a little bit before heading onwards to some more intense travel destinations. Vienna was my first stop, but unfortunately, it wasn’t exactly a great one. You may recall […]

An Eventful Evening At The ICE HOTEL

After a day spent exploring (and a much needed nap) I woke up in time to see the sun disappear from the sky. I had a few hours to kill before a snowmobiling trip, so I took the opportunity to take as many pictures as I could – some of which were so much more […]

Welcome to the Swedish ICE HOTEL

When I say that my bucket list is so long that I will most likely never complete it, I am not kidding. I have never actually written down a list (let’s be real, it would be a novel) but I have a mental one up in my head, and I could easily rattle off 250 […]

Unpopular Opinion: I Didn’t Love Svalbard

Sometimes, our travels through a place just don’t quite fill our souls with that addictive travel high. Not so long ago I wrote a post about some of the places that just didn’t do it for me, and it seems that I now have a new place to add to that list. Svalbard is an […]

25 Pictures To Make You Put Greenland At The Top of Your Bucket List

Snowmobiling Around Mountainous Sisimiut

I will admit, I was hesitant to go snowmobiling. As it happens, I am a seriously terrible driver, have no valid drivers licence (let alone an international one) and no winter sports cover on my travel insurance, so to go ahead and snowmobile anyway was not exactly a wise idea. In countries where tourism is […]

Packing List: Winter In The Arctic

MERINO WOOL THERMALS I have travelled in cold climates before. Winter in Europe – no problem. Autumn in the Arctic – not an issue. Until my most recent trip to Greenland, I had never once really needed my thermals. In Kangerlussuaq, the mercury plunged down to unbelievably cold temperatures (-41 centigrade on the coldest day) […]

Icebergs and Auroras in Ilulissat

After spending two days on complete bedrest following a rather nasty accident, I was not exactly a happy chicken. I was in my favourite place in the world, but instead of exploring and enjoying it, I was stuck in a bed, eating junk food and watching old episodes of television shows that I had already […]
