First time in Prague

Prague is a place I’d heard so much about and really wanted to visit. Finally, In January 2017, my girlfriend and I spent 4 days, 3 nights there. Hopefully this blog will help first time visitors experience the highlights this city has to offer. We didn’t research much before our trip apart from the weather. The temperature reached -11 degrees and peaked at -2 during out stay. Having never experienced this kind of cold before, we were...

New York. The greatest (built up) city on Earth.

New York. The greatest (built up) city on Earth.

New York is a city I’ve never really had the urge to visit. In my mind, it was a place to visit with a girlfriend or wife for a romantic break away and was being saved for that very occasion. But… One of my best pals lives in Boston and suggested we go there for the weekend while I was over on my annual America jaunt, I’m SO glad we did too! Here’s my thoughts of New York and what I got up to in a whirlwind 48...

Why non-alcohol beer is the answer.

Why non-alcohol beer is the answer.

I’ve been through lots of different phases of drinking in my life. From social pub drinking to Benidorm binge drinking. Nowadays, hangovers put the fear of death into me. I LOVE a good drink, I LOVE the taste of a random Belgian beer or a nice champagne. Who doesn’t like a refreshing ice cold beer on a hot sunny day? Drinking is ingrained in our culture. Over the past few years, I have been on a few major health kicks and binned the...

Cheapest network to use your mobile in Spain

As you may know, I travel a lot and spend a lot of time in Spain. One of the biggest outgoings when abroad can be staying in touch with home. A few years ago when I bought my first iPhone, I racked up a bill £250 by simply making a few calls and putting some photos on Facebook. How times have changed! Last year I changed networks to THREE. For me, they have the greatest phone deal known to man when using your phone in selected...

Airports. They used to be fun. Not anymore.

Airports. They used to be fun. Not anymore.

I fly a lot, I know what to expect when I go on a flight, the problem is, other people also have to come on these flights with me who haven’t a clue how an airport works. This (coupled with pedantic airport staff who have been trained by the North Korean army) makes the whole experience rather stressful. Here’s my take on airports and flying, coupled with a few photos I’ve taken along the way. When you plan your...

Lisbon (it’s in Portugal)

Lisbon was a destination I really looking forward to as I had never been to Portugal before. I didn’t know what to expect from this huge capital city. This was the 4th consecutive day we had docked in a new city and all the walking had taken its toll, some very tired legs.  As soon as we walked off the boat there were representatives selling tickets for the ‘Hop on, hop off’ bus tours, perfect! I had also never been on one of...
