A selection of travel destinations in and around Europe. Including pictures, highlights and characteristics of this vast region.

Europe is steeped in history and culture, each country and region totally different from the other.
Since we have been a couple we have visited European destinations numerous times, we always find something new to fascinate and inspire us.
Visiting many European countries has given us a valuable in-site to the diversity of each country and the unique mix of culture, sights and sounds which make each place different which is what we enjoy.
We like to immerse ourselves into the day to day life of the various countries and gain an insight into daily life of a region.
We have enjoyed many European cities and hope you will too. Here are the stories of our travels.

Our Paris Dinner Cruise Experience When I travel I always try to avoid all the high priced touristy activities because, well, they’re touristy. Unless it’s something I really want to do, I always look for (and often find) alternatives, which are cheaper and sometimes more interesting than what the tourist trap has to offer. I […]
My Love for Paris – First Impressions I didn’t always love Paris, my love for Paris came much later… On my first visit to Paris in my early 20’s we stayed outside Paris and although we had a lot of fun, it wasn’t the Paris of the movies. Don’t get me wrong, I caught glimpses […]
