The Incredible Moselle Loop And Beautiful Town Of Bernkastel Kues In Germany

The next part of our road trip was gonna be all about the Moselle Valley of Germany and given how beautiful the Rhine Valley was, this was one part of the trip I was really looking forward to.

Leaving Assmannshausen, we made our way over to The Moselle Loop Viewpoint.

Almost forgot – to set some context, the Moselle Loop is a hairpin turn in the Moselle river and is actually quite a picturesque part of this valley

There’s a car park near the viewpoint where you can drop your car off at and just enjoy the short but scenic stroll over to the viewpoint.

But here’s the thing with the viewpoint – because you’re right on the edge of a high, steep hill. You can actually see the Moselle Loop but it’s such a restricted view which you can’t really see properly into the valley.

11 Best Places In Latvia To Visit

Perched on the Baltic Sea, Lativa is probably best known for its gorgeous capital, Riga. That being said, there are a shed load of incredible and best places in Latvia that are beyond the capital, too.

Surrounded by; Russia, Lithuania, Estonia and Belarus, Lativa has a pretty incredible mix of influences and spots that are great to see during a longer trip around the country. 

For instance, it has some wonderful towns and villages and a pretty stunning coastline (that you might not think about when you first think of Lativa). After all, it’s right on the Baltic Sea which is great to explore in the summer months.

With that in mind, and after spending some time in the country, I wanted to share some of the best places in Latvia that you should think of visiting on your next ...

The Beautiful German Town Of Bacharach

After two nights exploring Nurburgring and all the many adrenaline-fuelled fun to be had here, it was finally time to leave and head off on the next leg of our road trip – the bit filled with castles, vineyards and the cutest villages and towns.

Our first stop (well, more of a pit-stop really) was the Loreley Plateau, a viewpoint on our way where you essential get multiple views of the Rhine valley around you, but even before we got there, we were greeted by many a beautiful castle as we made our way through.

The Loreley Plateau has multiple ‘official views’ you’re meant to check out here but I just say head straight through to the end of it to see all of the valley below from the vantage viewpoint (there are about 3 main ones here where you get a sense of how long and wi...

10 Best Things To Do In Prague

Prague is one of those incredibly beautiful cities in Europe that’s perfect to explore; especially as part of a weekend or longer trip. You see, it’s got something for everyone; history, tasty food, gorgeous cobbled streets and loads of stunning buildings. Honestly, there’s a whole heap of the best things to do in Prague that are dotted all across the city. 

For me, the thing I loved most about Prague was how walkable the city centre is. This means that it’s great if you don’t want to be hopping on trains and buses the whole time whilst you’re in the city and you can actually see most places with a little, leisurely, stroll. 

Plus, all that walking means that you can order and extra huge dessert; well, that’s my excuse, anyway! ?

Anyway, before I get...

The Northern Lights Village And Star Arctic… In Lapland, Finland

The next day, after a leisurely breakfast, we packed our suitcases up and said farewell to Muotka Wilderness Lodge.

The Northern Lights Village And Star Arctic... In Lapland, Finland (4)

Fun as it was, we would be moving to a different hotel for the next couple of days here (which is something we’d arrange with Inghams Holiday prior to arriving so no surprises there).

As we had a free morning to kill, we made our way over to the Northern Lights Village which is just a hive of lots of different Lapland fun.

You can stay here (they have rooms with glass roofs so you can see the Northern Lights in bed if they come out), sauna, old-style Sami houses (the Sami people are the ones who live around here), reindeers, dog-sledding – the lot!

The First 24 Hours In Lapland, Finland

The best way to make the most of winter is to fully embrace it. Like no staying indoors, waiting for it to pass but instead, grabbing those snow boots, warm coats and jackets and just heading out exploring. There’s just so much fun to be had in winter and it’s easily become one of my favourite seasons to travel.

And I’m not even talking about travel to warm places to escape winter… I’m talking about heading deep into the coldest places out there to make the most of winter at its peak.

Somehow, last year, we ended up having no real wintry trips planned (not even sure why now) and so as soon as the new year came around, a trip somewhere cold was the first thing on my mind.

Before long, we were booked onto an Ingram’s Holiday trip to Finnish Lapland, in the Arctic Circle for a f...

11 Best Things To Do In Atlantic Canada

From the beautiful spots in Alberta, the vibrant city of Vancouver and the beautiful spots in Ontario; there is so much to see across Canada. That being said, there’s one area of Canada that’s sometimes overlooked in lieu of its more-known spots, and that’s Atlantic Canada. You see, there is so much to do on the east coast of Canada, especially with all the things to do in Atlantic Canada.

This is exactly why I wanted to pop over some of our favourite spots to explore whilst you’re on the east coast of Canada. After all, it’s still a hugely vast area and you’d need months (if not years) to even dream of seeing it all.

With this in mind, I wanted to share some of the spots we explored during our recent trips to Canada.

12 Best Things To Do In Ghent, Belgium

Belgium is an incredible country to explore! Yeah, it might be relatively small when it comes to size but don’t let that fool you at all. There are some stunning places in Belgium all across the country, with Ghent being no exception. It’s one of those Belgium cities that has a little something for everyone and a heap of the best things to do in Ghent that are dotted all around the city. 

Now, after places like the incredible city of Brussels and historic Bruges, Ghent is easily up there as one of the top spots to see whilst exploring Belgium.

Better still, it’s small enough to explore for a short break if you’re short on time. 

This is exactly why I wanted to share some of the best things to do in Ghent when you visit...

A Road Trip From The UK To Germany…

I love a good road trip! It’s just such a great way to explore a new destination. You get to see and explore so much more than you would normally and have the flexibility to make your trip whatever you want it to be.

This is in large part what fuelled my excitement to go on a summer road trip to Germany from the U.K.

Typically, we’d just fly over to Germany from London but after having driven from the UK to Austria (for this amazing festival earlier in the year), it became very clear how easy it was to actually drive from here (and also how much fun there was to be had travelling this way).

The original idea was to rent a car in London, catch a ferry from the south of England (Dover) and drive from there back and forth, however, as we were due to be up north (last-minute travel plans...

13 Best Things To Do In Fuerteventura

Being one of the larger of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is a pretty varied and special island to explore. It’s one of those islands that has a little bit of everything and such a diverse landscape that’s amazing for a holiday trip. This is exactly why I wanted to share some of my favourite and best things to do in Fuerteventura after our trip. 

Now, just like the other islands of Gran Canaria, Tenerife and Lanzarote; Fuerteventura is a total gem but sometimes overlooked as not being ‘off the grid’ enough for certain travellers. Though, in my opinion, is totally irrelevant as there really are so many stunning and best things to do in Fuerteventura. 

You see, I don’t think it’s fair to judge a destination just because there are good transport connections (to the rest of Europe...
