Bombay Sapphire Distillery Gin Cocktail Masterclass

Bombay Sapphire Distillery Gin Cocktail Masterclass

Anyone who knows me will know that my main passions in life are travelling, food and fine wine. I do have another guilty pleasure though, and that is Gin, so when I was asked by friends if I would like to go to a Gin cocktail masterclass at the Bombay Sapphire distillery in Laverstoke I jumped at the chance.
Berlin City Break - Brandenburg Gate

Berlin City Break

Reflecting on all the wonderful European city break destinations that I have visited in recent years, I was surprised that Berlin was one of the destinations that I hadn’t yet visited. Just over a year ago I decided to take a trip to Berlin to visit the annual ITB Berlin travel trade show.
Funchal City Break

Funchal City Break

For a long time I have been intrigued by the beauty of the Portuguese island Madeira, from its striking rugged coastlines to its vibrant countryside and beautiful ornate botanical gardens. This year my birthday conveniently fell on a Saturday, so I decided to book a three night Funchal city break so I could explore this unique Island.
Evening in Salamanca

An Evening in Salamanca, Spain

When driving from northern to southern Spain the most direct route is from San Sebastian to Madrid then on to the Costa del Sol via Granada, which is the route that I have taken on all my previous trips. However, on my must recent trip with my father to southern Spain we decided to take the Autovia Ruta de la Plata, in English this means the Silver Route.
Best Pierogi in Gdansk by WorldWideWill

The Best Pierogi in Gdansk

One of my favourite foods in a Gdansk is Pierogi. Pierogi are a small polish dumpling, which visually are a cross between Japanese gyoza and a small Cornish pasty. Pierogi can have many different fillings, and the texture and look of the Pierogi can vary massively. On my most recent trip to Gdansk I set out to find the best Pierogi in Gdansk.
Prague Christmas Markets break 2018

Prague Christmas Market

Prague with its striking gothic architecture, ornate squares and imposing castle is famously known as Europe’s fairytale capital city, a fantastic location for a magical Christmas market. I have visited Prague a...
Vienna City Break by WorldWideWill

My Vienna City Break, Summer 2018

With its grand tree lined avenues with many lavish villas and palaces to the aromas of fresh coffee and pastries from the abundance of coffee shops and cafes, Vienna is a city that will stir up your senses in many ways.
Railjet Service from Budapest to Vienna

Railjet Service from Budapest to Vienna

When I planned my recent trip to Budapest and Vienna I had to decide how I was going to travel between the two cities and I decided that I would take the train.
Budapest City Break by WorldWideWill

Budapest City Break Late Summer 2018

Budapest is one of my favourite cities in Europe, and a place I enjoy returning to time and time again. Will my summer Budapest city break be better than my previous visits in winter? 
Wonderful Evening in Brugge

A Wonderful Evening in Brugge

My previous trips to Belgium have only taken me to Brussels, so when an opportunity arose for an impromptu trip to Brugge I just couldn't resist. It was a Friday morning when I was asked if I fancied tagging along on a road trip to Europe which would involve an evening stop in Brugge. Brugge has always been somewhere which I had wanted to visit, so I agreed without hesitation, and that evening I headed off for my Wonderful Evening in Brugge.
Gdansk Weekend Break by WorldWideWill

My Second Gdansk Weekend Break

I first touched down in Gdansk a mere six months ago and upon arrival I immediately fell in love with the beauty of this city, so much so that I couldn't resist returning here to enjoy a second Gdansk weekend break.
Weekend Break in Nice, Côte d'Azur

Weekend Break in Nice, Côte d’Azur

Despite France being one of the closest countries to the UK, I realised that apart from travelling through France by road, I've not properly visited France in almost 8 years, and so I thought that this would be the year to change that.
Venice City Break by WorldWideWill

My Winter 2018 Venice City Break

I have been to Venice many times, it's one of those places that I could return to time and time again and would always find something new to see or do. While perusing the destinations on offer in a British Airways sale last year I found a deal to Venice for £100pp for flights and hotel, and at that price I couldn't resist booking myself a cheeky Venice city break just before Christmas 2017.
Hotel Du Vin Cambridge

My Meal and Stay at the Hotel Du Vin Cambridge

A while ago I read about a great Sunday night deal offered by Hotel du Vin, so I thought I'd give it a try. The deal allows you to book a room for the night for as little as £30, with the condition that you spend a minimum of £75 on Sunday evening in their bistro. For this trip I decided to book a stay at the Hotel du Vin Cambridge as this was the ideal location for a place that I wanted to visit in the vicinity.
Turin Christmas Markets

Exploring the Turin Christmas Markets

For this years Christmas market break I wanted to try somewhere completely different to the destinations that I've visited previously. One of my friends suggested Italy and after some research I concluded that the Turin Christmas markets were the ones which I wanted to visit.
Lake Bled Weekend Break by WorldWideWill

Lake Bled Weekend Break

Hidden away amongst the snow capped Julian Alps in Slovenia are the crystal clear waters of Lake Bled. The turquoise waters glisten in the sun and are surrounded by colourful forests and vivid snow-capped...
Gdansk City Break

My Amazing Gdansk City Break by WorldWideWill

Poland has always been somewhere I have wanted to visit, and after my failed attempt in getting to Wroclaw last year I've been longing to book another trip. Earlier this year I saw a great deal on flights to Gdansk with Wizz Air and I just could not resist booking a Gdansk city break.
Weekend Break in Andalusia

My Top Recommendations for a Great Weekend Break in Andalusia

The last stop on this years trip to Spain was to spend a few days at the family home, near Marbella in Andalusia. Most people who visit Andalusia head for the sun-soaked beaches of the Costa del Sol, but I wanted to spend my time here exploring some of the less touristy places.
