A Luxury Weekend at the Radisson Blu in Bremen

Bremen Radisson Blu

I’m not one to stay in fancy hotels, I normally opt for anything that’s cheap and cheerful. Especially when I’m doing short city breaks and planning on spending as little time inside as possible. But when I found an amazing price on Booking.com for the Radisson Blu for my trip to Bremen, I couldn’t turn it down.

We travelled to Bremen for the May Bank Holiday as a last-minute trip. I wanted to take full advantage of the extra free day off work so decided to take the Friday off as a holiday to make it a 4-day weekend. Bliss! You can read my post here on what we did on our trip.

Discovering the Sights of Bremen

Bremen Marktplatz, Germany

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!

A Beginners Guide to Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond. My first true love! If you don’t know, Loch Lomond & Trossachs is a national park in Scotland. However, this post will focus on only one aspect of the park – the water itself, Loch Lomond. Since I was young, we’ve always visited the shores of Loch Lomond for summer day trips and winter road trips. It’s not particularly a secret, but I wanted to make it as simple as possible for you to plan your trip, too. Loch Lomond is a fresh water loch and is the greatest inland stretch of water in Britain based on its surface area. Below I’ve split the Loch into East and West to make your trip as straightforward as possible.

However, Doune Castle’s claim to fame is as being the location for filming the Game of Thrones pilot, Monty Python movie and the famous Outlander.
