9 Amazing Places to Visit in Vienna

Vienna was a city that I only really scratched the surface of. In fact, on a whirlwind trip through Bratislava and Vienna, I only managed to visit these 9 top attractions. One day I hope to return to Vienna so that I can really discover the city. I just want to see what all the big fuss is about, y’know? But if like me you only have 24 to 48 hours in Vienna and you just want to see all the best…

The Best Way to Spend Two Days in Amsterdam [Itinerary]

I did not expect to like Amsterdam. In fact, I’d go so far as saying I really wasn’t too excited to visit the city. I know, I know, you probably think I’m crazy but Amsterdam never caught my eye like other European cities have. I assumed it would be very overrated. But boy, was I wrong. I was so wrong. Amsterdam is great and I’ve been raving about it…

Interrailing on a Budget: How to Save Money Travelling Europe

Let’s face the cold hard facts: Europe is expensive. For many people, interrailing is a far flung dream but it can be done on the cheap if you’re willing to sacrifice some luxuries.

The Best Way to Spend One Day in Bratislava [Itinerary]

I did not expect to fall in love with Bratislava. It isn’t a European hotspot like Paris or Rome but its small town charm did not fail to impress me. If you’re like me and didn’t really know much about the city, Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia and it lies on…

If you searched for a synonym for 25hours Hotels, the word you would stumble upon is “quirky”. Or maybe “Lucy Ronan”. Seriously, this chain of hotels is so up my street. It was like it was handmade just for me. So it’s safe to say that I was extremely excited to stay…
