The Ultimate Guide to Manchester by A Local

The “ultimate” guide to Manchester, now, that’s quite a statement. However, having lived in Manchester for almost 8 years, I thought it was about time I jotted down a local’s guide to Manchester. There’s just so much to write about this wonder of a city – from its industrial history to modern foodie revolution. From the shiny skyscrapers of Spinningfields to the red brick buildings of Northern Quarter. It’s hardly a secret that I adore this city; I’ve lived in...

3 Days in Dublin: A Dublin Itinerary Without Beer

In a city famous for strong whiskey, pints of black stout and late pub nights it can be overwhelming to find a Dublin itinerary that involves nothing of the above. Admittedly, this is a selfish itinerary as I’ve never liked beer (or whiskey) and so this is basically a shout out to all my fellow anti-beer people. HELLO. Ramble aside, visits to Guinness (stout) or Jameson (whiskey) often dominate Dublin itineraries and surely I can’t be the only one who’d...

If you want to really chill out you could also make Dun Laoghaire a full day trip from Dublin. The main appeal of Dun Laoghaire is the slower pace...

The time it would now take to travel from Copenhagen to Sweden by train was only about 40 minutes. In addition, people could easily flow between the two countries for work and Swedes had much easier access to Denmark’s Kastrup airport. All in all,...

How To Spend 48 Hours in Krakow, Poland

One of my closest friends got married in Poland this year and since when can you visit a new country and not add a few days of exploration? After the wedding in Warsaw we travelled south by train and spent 48 hours in Krakow exploring the city and its surroundings. We arrived in Krakow on a warm summer evening, hungover and sleep deprived from the wedding (seriously though, I recommend Polish weddings), and it just clicked. I fell in love...
