City Girls vs. Nature: a dose of olde English charm in the Cotswolds

•••
The neurotic nature of England’s spring weather means Easter is often a washout - but not this year. While fishermen with bulging tackle boxes caught trains out to the coast, I hightailed it to the ‘burbs. I was joining Girls on Travel - a tour group that connects solo ladies on guided trips, and this one was out to the Cotswolds. Also known as the epice[...]

Hotels we love: Villa Sorgenfrei & a weekend in Dresden

•••
In Germany, the city of Dresden has become the centre of political debates in recent years, take the refugee crisis, the nation's and Europe's response to it and growing right-wing extremism (like the weekly PEGIDA demonstrations). I know, this is not your typical intro for a travel piece but it's impossible not to reflect on Dresden's history and present if[...]

The beautiful Polish city that's only a stone's throw from Berlin

•••
Berlin is such a universe itself that I often forget how close other fascinating universes are, like Poland.

When I r[...]

•••
A lot of things in life don’t always go to plan and that’s the fun of it, usually. Two friends of mine and I had been planning a week-long hike in the Austrian Alps for months, we sent round pictures of preparations and details of the exact route in a dedicated WhatsApp group and couldn’t wait for that well-deserved break. Then both of them became ill, I [...]

48 hours on Germany's largest island

•••
Where do you go when you live in the big smoke and find yourself a little overwhelmed by all the work and the deadlines that are piling up on your desk? In London, that place was Brighton. In Berlin, that place is the Baltic Sea. So last week when said deadlines were getting on top of me, I threw all books, magazines and electronics into my friend's car and [...]

Exploring the Hills of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Wales

•••
What do you do if you fancy a quick, cheap and little travel in the winter that will help you burn those calories and revitalise that tired winter skin? Well, it must involve a lot of walking, some stunning landscapes, cosy fires and perhaps a splash of red wine. Somewhere in the countryside with a car and great company is pretty much all you need if you fan[...]
