I’ve taken numerous holidays to Greece over the years, including visits to Mykonos, Ios, Paros, Santorini and Kos, but one of my favourites has to be Skiathos in the Sporades island chain. My uncle was always recommending it as his favourite holiday destination, so eventually my Mum took me there in my late teens. We stayed in [...]
When travelling to countries such as the United States or Australia, I’m quickly reminded of how small the UK actually is. Americans think nothing of driving for a few hour within one state, while in the UK you can drive only half an hour down the road and find yourself straining to understand a completely [...]
You can’t get a more convenient location than the Comfort Hotel Grand Central, which is located inside Oslo’s central station. You’re only a 2-minute walk from the airport express train, which is fantastic if you want to save time commuting to/from the airport. The Location The Comfort Hotel Grand Central is located inside central station, [...]
My train arrived in Lake Constance around midday and with only an afternoon to spare, I quickly scanned the list of options for places to visit. There were a myriad of things to do, including a spa called Bodensee-Therme; a boat trip on the lake to see the Old Castle of Meersburg and the Museum [...]
Situated slap-bang in the middle of Oslo, the Hotel Continental is a classy affair and Norway’s only member of the Leading Hotels of the World. The hotel has been built up by a single family over four generations, and this is reflected in the warmth of the customer service. Upon arrival I was greeted with a [...]
I’m not gonna lie, Oslo is definitely the most expensive place I’ve visited in the world. I mean, so expensive you might find yourself cursing at your bank statement afterwards. But, like Zurich, the city is brimming with ridiculously good-looking, well-dressed people…hot, blonde, Adonis-like creatures. To the clueless foreigner they may seem a little weird, but [...]
On a visit to Baden-Baden for the Deutscher Medienpreis (German Media Awards), Bill Clinton said; “Baden-Baden is so nice you have to name it twice.” Indeed it is nice. It’s MORE than nice; I don’t think the word does it justice. Located in the Baden Wuttermburg area of Germany at the foothills of the Black Forest, [...]
Oh Zurich. We met for only a day but I was instantly attracted to you. Like Oslo in Norway you’re expensive, but I loved your elegant watches, tailored clothes, private banks and beautiful men. I’d love to get to know you better, but alas I only had one day! I hope we meet again. ~ [...]
As our bus driver heads deeper into the Black Forest and we are dropped by the side of the road in what appears to be the middle of nowhere, I think to myself: “Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore!” I look around expecting to see some sort of zip-lining centre, but all I see is [...]
Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
