10 things to do in Lisbon for under £50!

Lisbon is one of my favorite cities in Europe and thankfully it doesn’t have to be too expensive to escape to for a few days. I spent 6 days there last year and kept costs down to around… Read More

Ljubljana, Slovenia: Europe’s best kept secret?

I’m not suggesting that people don’t know where Slovenia is (although I have heard a fair few people confuse it for Slovakia). What I am suggesting however, is that most people don’t realise it’s beautiful diversity. As far as… Read More
