We booked to visit Bremen, Germany on a whim, trying to make the most of the May bank holiday. We looked on SkyScanner, found the cheapest flight and booked it. And thankfully we had enough Euros left over from Ibiza two years ago that we didn’t need spending money. Bremen is in the North West of Germany, and has plenty of sights easily reachable on foot. The Main Square (Marktplatz) is a hub of tourists, restaurants, historical culture and iconic gothic and renaissance architecture. We spent three days wandering Bremen and discovering what this beautiful city had to offer. Spoiler alert: a lot!
2016 was officially my first full year of blogging. Officially I started in December 2015 so to keep a project going this long is just amazing. 2016 is also the year that I got to tick a few more things off my bucket list, including road tripping up to Glencoe, visiting Auschwitz in Poland and getting to see the Berlin Wall in person.
Ok, I covered all the main sites and attractions in last weeks post, but now it’s time to go over some of the alternative things that I found in the city that I didn’t find in any guide book or blog post. Like I had said before, we didn’t really have a plan for Berlin; we were all just excited to get out of Scotland for the weekend, explore something new things and generally just have a good time hanging out with each other and meeting new people.Continue Reading "6 Alternative Things to Do in Berlin"
As someone who loves travel and is a 21st Century kid, I need to keep up with the times! And that means jumping on the bandwagon when it comes to new and innovative ways of using technology and the internet to get the best rate flights, accommodation and tours. Lo and Behold, Airbnb was born!Continue Reading "Trying out Airbnb in Berlin"
Berlin was jam packed with weird, wonderful and quirky things at every corner; and that was one of the main reasons why I was initially drawn to Berlin and ultimately fell in love with it. I think I might start making this into a series, I love ahowing you all a side to the places I visit that don’t really fit into regular informative posts (see my Thailand Zoo one here).Continue Reading "Things I Noticed: A Berlin Photo Diary"
The fact this post is live means I’ve been to Berlin, explored the city and now I’m home. Sad times! Last week I travelled to Berlin with two of my closest friends to explore what Germany had to offer. Part of the reason we chose Berlin was simply because I’ve always wanted to go, and partly because the flights and accommodation were so cheap (see my post here on how I managed to travel for £225).Continue Reading "How To Spent a Weekend in Berlin: The Sites"
I recently visited Berlin with two of my closest friends from school and managed to get flights and accommodation for just over £200 (please bear in mind, this was before the chaos that the Brexit vote caused!). I’m one for a good bargain, I say it all the time, but I don’t understand why you would pay for something that costs X amount, and you can get the same thing elsewhere for cheaper.Continue Reading "A Weekend in Berlin for under £225"
It’s that time of the year again for us 9-5’ers to start meticulously planning our holidays out, given out circa 28 paid annual leave days. Jamie and I have agreed this year that we will try to keep our trips to small weekends away at a time, and try to save up for a big long-haul adventure next year.Continue Reading "Where I’m Travelling To In 2016"
