Edinburgh in winter – 15 things to do in Edinburgh for culture lovers

Edinburgh is a fantastic city break destination at any time of year, although the guidebooks often tell you to visit in summer for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival or at New Year for Hogmanay. But let’s face it, Scotland’s capital is packed at those times, so if you’d like to enjoy all the top sights and world class culture, but have them pretty much to yourself, I can recommend Edinburgh in winter for a short break.

A Guide to Wartburg Castle and Eisenach – on the Martin Luther trail in Germany

Perched high above the town of Eisenach, Wartburg Castle is everything you’d hope for from a Medieval castle in Germany, with towers, turrets and an eagle’s eye view over the Thuringian Forest. Built in the 11th century, the castle was the seat of the rulers of Thuringia and during the Middle Ages it built a reputation as a centre of culture, attracting the leading poets and musicians of the day. Wartburg was also the home of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, the wife of Louis IV who ruled over T...

15 fun things to do in Ciutadella – the ancient capital of Menorca

The ancient capital of Menorca and island’s second city of Ciutadella lives up to its nickname of Vella i Bella, the old and beautiful, with layers of history steeped into the honey stone buildings. The narrow streets of the old town are pedestrianised and lined with charming shops, bars and restaurants making this an easy place to wander and fall in love with. I’d visited Menorca before and was so captured by the island that I returned with a friend for a few days of walking, using Ciutade...

15 fun things to do in Dresden – in just one day!

I’m not sure what I expected of Dresden, a city that’s packed with cultural gems, a city that’s a poster child for the Baroque, a city that was largely destroyed in the Second World War. I knew that after the terrible fire storm inflicted by the English and American bombers, the city had been largely rebuilt to recreate it as before and that it was part of East Germany until reunification in 1990. But I think I’d been expecting somewhere a bit smaller and more quaint, rather than the large,...

Trying an alternative car hire at Bristol Airport with Car and Away

How many times have you spent a day out near home and enjoyed it so much that you wonder, “Why go on holiday, when there’s so much to see on my doorstep?” That was my experience as I drove through Somerset, trying out the alternative car hire at Bristol Airport that has been launched by Car and Away. Their service is a version of car sharing, like Airbnb for cars, since you can rent out your car to another traveller while you’re on holiday, or rent a car that belongs to someone else at Bris...

12 fun things to do in Erfurt, Thuringia, Germany

Erfurt seemed to me the perfect example of a picturesque Medieval German town, that grew rich in the Middle Ages on the proceeds of Woad and stayed rich as a crossroads for trade on the old pilgrim route of the Via Regia. There’s an easy going, small town feel here, as our guide Matthius told us “Erfurt is not a speedy city, people walk, they talk, Erfurt is a meeting point. A university town set in the green heart of Germany and capital of the state of Thuringia, Erfurt was part of former ...

20 fabulous things to do in Paxos, Greece

It’s probably a bit of a joke to talk about all the things to do in Paxos, the smallest of the Ionian islands in Greece. The joke is that most people come to Paxos to do absolutely nothing. The nothing of enjoying the view, swimming in the crystal turquoise sea, eating great food and hanging out with friends and family. Source

Things to do in Pisa – a guide to the Leaning tower, Duomo and Baptistery

Are you someone who loves those cheesy photos “holding up” the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Getting that selfie is one of the most popular things to do in Pisa, so perhaps you’ll be propping up that most famous of towers or leaning against it in a few of your holiday snaps?  I visited Pisa in a half day trip as part of a cruise excursion, but it’s a popular destination if you’re looking for easy day trips from Florence or are touring around Italy.
