We have left the UK!

We have left the UK!

As many of you will know by now, we left the UK on 14th August. After months and months of planning, worry and excitement, the day eventually came for us to pack our (rather heavy!) bags and get on that plane to China. I can’t quite believe we’ve actually gone and done it- we have moved abroad! I’m so proud of us for going after what we want out of life, even though it’s scary and not the ‘norm’. I know…

What we spent whilst Interrailing

What we spent whilst Interrailing

In late July/ early August 2016, Seb and I spent 12 nights Interrailing through Europe. Our brief trip spanned 5 countries: The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia- but how much did we spend? We have now begun tracking every penny we spend using the Trail Wallet app, created by Simon from Never Ending Voyage. Simon and Erin were the first travel bloggers I ever read, and their nomadic lifestyle inspires me to want to build a location-independent income…

Interrail travel diary: Pula

Interrail travel diary: Pula

The shortest stop on our trip, we spent just 1 night in Pula before we flew home to the UK. I’m aware that we barely scratched the surface of the City as we were there for such a short time, but nonetheless we enjoyed our stay. Our train journey to Pula was my favourite out of all of them- the train cars were very oldy-worldy and the scenery was stunning. We also had to change trains at what my Nanny…

Interrail travel diary: Ljubljana

I’m so sorry for the delay on these final few posts- our last week in the UK was a very busy one and I just couldn’t keep up with the blog for the final few days. Now we’ve landed in Chiang Mai and I have two lovely, relaxing, free weeks ahead of me to get on top of things- and write more content!   Written 03/08/16  I wasn’t sure what to expect from Ljubljana- as we had an extended stay…

Eating our way around Budapest

Eating our way around Budapest

During our time in Budapest, we stayed in the Jewish Quarter. We quickly realised that the variety and quality of food on offer in this area of the City was far better than we’d hoped, and we found some fabulous cheap eats that easily top our list of favourite restaurants. We found ourselves faced with a hard choice each day- go back to places we love, or try something new? We hope our favourites will help you find something to…

Interrail Travel Diary: Budapest

Interrail Travel Diary: Budapest

Written 01/08/16 Today we’re on our way to Ljubljana after an amazing 4 nights in Budapest. We’re been kicked out of our seats twice but have now managed to find a little table in the dining car and have taken up residence for the rest of our 8.5 hour journey. I’ve been inspired to write an Interrail guide after our train adventures – you can find that here. We spent our time in Budapest exploring the Castle Quarter, Heroes Square…

Interrail Travel Diary: Prague

Interrail Travel Diary: Prague

Written 27/07/16 We made the decision to only stop in Prague for two nights- and if I’m honest I’m glad we did. Forget the myth that prices are low here- no, actually that’s unfair of me. Instead, I should warn you to BE PREPARED, because if you don’t you may find yourself having to fork out £3 for a small bottle of water next to Prague Castle. We also haven’t had the best experience in our hostel. Although it’s very…

Interrailing 101: 10 tips for surviving your train experience

Interrail Week is here! For the first post I’d like to offer up 10 tips and tricks to make your Interrail experience as easy and fun as possible. I can’t speak for what it may be like in every Country that your pass includes, but we experienced journeys through The Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia, so a bit of a mix between Western and Eastern Europe. 1) Plan your route– know which trains you’re getting, what…

Interrail Week is coming!

Interrail Week is coming!

With Internet being more than a little dodgy at the moment, and only my phone to write posts on, it’s difficult to get content up like I’d planned to. So, to compensate for this, and to celebrate our departure from the UK on 14th August, we’re doing Interrail Week on the blog! Every day from Monday 8th August – Sunday 13th August there will be a new post up, all relating to our Interrail experience. What to expect: Mon 8th…

Interrail Travel Diary: Amsterdam

Interrail Travel Diary: Amsterdam

Written 25/07/16 As the evening draws to a close on our final day in Amsterdam, I thought I’d take the time to reflect on our visit. It was special for us to start our travels here, the day after leaving our jobs, as it’s the first place we came to on our honeymoon almost a year to the day. Although the city is very busy and touristy, it brings me a sense of calm- that might be the canals, the…
