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.
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!
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).
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).
I tried writing one of these posts out a few months ago, but felt I didn’t know enough bloggers to tag them. I always love reading these type of posts as well, they’re a quick and easy way to get to know your favourite bloggers/Twitter followers. Hopefully by the end you will get a sense of my personality and likes/dislikes 🙂
Thanks for the nomination Kat!
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.
Last weekend I travelled through to Edinburgh with around 16 fabulous ladies for one of my best friend’s hen weekend. We went for a sophisticated itinerary of Chicago at the Playhouse Theatre, Dinner and then some Salsa dancing to finish off. We stayed at the Edinburgh Capital Hotel just on the outskirts of the city and only 1.5 miles from Edinburgh Zoo.
This is quite a photo-heavy just because I wanted to showcase how pretty Glasgow Green is. On hot nights, Glasgow is reminiscent of the likes of Manhattan with people peppered throughout the local parks, taking in what could possible be the last sun of the year – you never know when the heat will end in Glasgow so we all have to make the most of it!
If you follow me on twitter you will know that I recently won a competition with my local radio station to attend the Ideal Home Show at the SECC in Glasgow last weekend. Part of the prize was also a luxury over night stay at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow.
To say Ibiza is renowned for it’s epic sunsets is an absolute understatement, and one of the most treasured parts of the island to witness the phenomenon is on the world famous sunset strip. You can watch the sun set a thousand times but each one will be unique and give you a new overwhelming sense of relaxation, romance and wanderlust to discover what is beyond that horizon. I’m not going to lie to you, there are other places on the island to witness the sunset, but with the combination of perfect geography, music and beverages, nothing beats San Antonio.
