Fat in Florence

I arrived into Florence after flying from Reykjavik to Munich via Copenhagen and then catching a train overnight from Munich to Florence. It ended up being a much cheaper option but it took approximately 26 hours and it was tough. After getting the bare minimum 4 hour sleep once arriving in Florence, I was up […]

Under the spanish sun

I arrived into Madrid in the middle of the night, after flying from Budapest with Ryanair, and after gaining a very good understanding of the infamy surrounding a certain budget airline. The first thing I learnt after arriving in Spain? Spanish people do not have the same concept of time or┬áthe same level of punctuality […]

Venice (minus my face)

I truly did have a wonderful time in Venice, I explored the city on foot, got far more photos than necessary, ate amazing food and really outdid myself on the drinking front. Lesson learnt: Despite my drinking prowess back in Australia, I should never attempt to keep up with a Russian because there is no […]

A Parisian Christmas

Every year since I can remember, the yearly celebration we call Christmas has been pretty much the same. I would wake up and partake in the obligatory social custom in which gifts are exchanged, which I do enjoy; but each year the tradition becomes more and more dull. By late morning I would be at […]

Am I French Yet?

There will always be cities that every man and his dog will rave about, but when you visit, you find yourself overwhelmingly underwhelmed. For me, those cities include Barcelona and London. There will always be cities that people advise you not to visit, because they are dull or boring or some other negative adjective, but […]

A Whirlwind in Prague

I found myself in Prague after a scenic train ride from Berlin. Once clear of the dreariness of Germany, the landscape just ran away with itself, becoming more and more beautiful with each passing moment.
