8 Hours Exploring Beautiful Bergen

We recently spent a long weekend in Norway. The main reason for our trip was to hike Trolltunga, but we also spent some time road-trippin’ around the Hardangerfjord region. To reach the fjord, we flew into Bergen – Norway’s second largest city. On the last day of our trip our flight home wasn’t until around […]

Road-trippin’ through the Hardangerfjord in Norway

If I had one piece of travel advice, it would be to rent a car whenever you can. Sure a group tour can save you a few pennies, but the freedom that comes with your own set of wheels is worth the extra splurge! We recently travelled to Norway for a long weekend with our […]

(Starting) The Buerbreen Glacier Hike

The morning after our hike to Trolltunga we ignored our aching muscles and started a second hike in the Hardangerfjord region to the Buarbreen Glacier. The photo above is the view from the parking lot – the glacier was such a striking shade of blue! The first part of the hike took us through a […]

What to pack for the 28km hike to Trolltunga!

At the end of last month I flew to Norway with Aled and some friends, and hiked Trolltunga! You can read more about the hike itself here. Trolltunga was my first black-rated hike, and so I took a lot of time reading blogs and doing my research before I left. Something that I thought would […]

Photography Journal: The North York Moors

A few months ago, we spent a lovely wintery weekend around the North York Moors…. and I completely forgot about the photos that I took! Most of the moors are quite flat, and so as someone who loves a good hike up a mountain, it wasn’t my favourite national park the U.K. has to offer. […]

Macaron Madness: my guide to the best sweet eats in Paris

A few weeks ago, we spent the most glorious weekend in Paris. I feel slightly ashamed to say it, but before I left, I thought “Paris won’t be like it is in films, it will be touristy and stressful… probably underwhelming…. BUT I’M SO EXCITED FOR THE PΓ‚TISSERIES”. Now, let me just start by saying […]

Saint Germain des PrΓ©s – My Favourite Neighbourhood in Paris

We recently spent a wonderful (but all-to-short) weekend in Paris. For our trip, we chose to stay in Saint Germain des PrΓ¨s, mainly because of it’s central location. When we hopped off the metro at OdΓ©on, I immediately knew this was my kind of neighbourhood, and after walking around most of Paris, I can now […]

Paris: Falling in Love With the City of Love

Paris is such an iconic city. Fun fact: I actually won a trip there when I was 6 years old. I entered a competition through my French club and sent a cassette tape (yes I did say CASSETTE TAPE… 90’s kids, ya feel me) of me singing the french nursery rhyme ‘Allouette’. That tape represents […]
