The original reason for coming to Frankfurt was purely because it was the cheapest place we could get a flight to Iceland. But, when presented with an opportunity to explore a new German city, how can I possibly refuse? After arriving late in the evening and taking a 20-minute detour to the apartment, the evening… Continue reading Frankfurt | More Than Just A Stopover?
An early morning search for a croissant is my second favourite way to start the day (first is to have said croissant brought to me). The search led us to a McCafe, a concept that will never wear thin until we have them in England. Breakfast sorted, we were ready to get exploring Dresden!

So recently I've decided that in a bid to boost the travel fund, I should spend some time (and save some money) exploring and discovering the sights on offer in the UK. I've lived here my whole life, so I know why people come here (as I go to other countries) and what they're most… Continue reading The joys of home 🙂
