Barcelona ~ Top 5 freebies

Ciao a tutti! Come Stai? I realise I have pretty much abandoned this blog over the summer, but my summer months have been filled with some exciting travel adventures – more on this to follow. However, I think the very essence of my blog is how to travel well, but on a budget. I don’t think…

Rome Day Three

Day Three   Day three is what I like to call ‘leftover day.’ After, doing the Colosseum and the Vatican for the first two days, day three gave me time to look at some other bits Rome had to offer. Today, from the Duke Hotel I decided to walk into the city as the national…

Rome Day Two

Day Two   It is a well known fact that City breaks are notoriously tiresome holidays, essentially because you’re packing so much culture, history, sightseeing and experiences into such a short period of time. But, believe me no matter how tired you are, getting up early is so worth it. Day Two was my ‘Vatican…

Gaudi’s Barcelona

Gaudi and Barcelona. Barcelona and Gaudi. These two terms have become somewhat synonyms in the past decade. On my most recent visit to Barcelona, I couldn’t help but wonder what if Gaudi had not chosen Barcelona (but that’s a post for another day), the fact is that he did choose Barcelona. Barcelona is the capital…

Rome Day one

Rome, one of, if not thee most historical and vibrant cities in the modern world. In an average year Rome draws roughly 7 million tourists, and this is just one of their accounts. This was my first holiday destination and its not surprising this is where I caught my travel bug.   I was 18,…

Ciao Ragazzi! Now I know I’m a tad late to be jumping on this trend but I simply couldn’t resist. I was tempted to do the A-Z  book challenge, but really felt like Travel posts would be more of a thing! Below is an initial list of posts I’ll be writing up over the coming…

Nightmare in Naples

Ciao Ragazzi! Normally, I have nothing but complimentary travel posts, this one is a bit different! If you have a different opinion to me then feel free to comment and persuade me otherwise! See Naples and die. A phrase stuck in many travellers’ minds, including my own. This phrase originated in the 16th century and…

Blogmas has begun…..Lecce!

Ciao Raggazzi! I realise that I am a day late starting Blogmas, but I am starting none the less. The reason I did not start yesterday was because I went to the cinema to finally see Mockingjay part II and it did not disappoint. It was action packed from the beginning to the end, but…

Capri

Ciao Ragazzi! The Amalfi coast boasts spectacular views of Mt.Vesuvius from any and every angle. And, whilst you get used to seeing this huge volcano on your doorstep day in day out, nothing at all will prepare you for Capri. Capri is probably the most well known island in the bay of Naples. And is…

Birmingham off the beaten track….

Ciao Ragazzi! I’d be a Brummie, born and bred. I thought I’d spice things up on my blog and talk about (in my opinion) one of the greatest cities in the world. So here’s a short list of my top five favourite unknown restaurants in Birmingham! I’ve avoided talking about all those generic chain restaurants…
