hand luggage

Today is my last day in Germany before I head to London for 10 days. I’m working through a mental to-do list and making the most of my time with Christian and Ralphy. As I need to pack this weekend I decided to share my tips when packing hand luggage. Whether it’s a long or short haul flight there is a check list of items I swear by.

tips speaking second language

If I can learn a second language, anyone can…

Learning a new language is hard, especially if you come from an English speaking country. Let’s face it, life is easier when most people you encounter in a foreign country can understand you. Despite being a lazy Brit who is used to everyone speaking English I always wanted to learn a second language. My journey began when I moved to Germany several years ago with my boyfriend who I met in London.

in flight skincare tips

If you’re catching a flight then it’s likely you are going somewhere. And whenever we are going somewhere we want to look our best. Being a self confessed skincare junkie I take precautionary measures before all flights, even the short ones. I’m currently taking two flights a month which I guess makes me a frequentish flyer? It’s no secret that flying sucks the life out of our skin so heavy duty skincare is required.

It’s crazy to think just a couple of weeks ago I was wandering through the streets of Valencia wearing shorts and a t-shirt. The flight from here is around two hours yet it felt so far away from chilly, autumnal Germany. The architecture is stunning and what I loved most is that the city has a beach. In Spain most places shut down mid afternoon so the locals can take a siesta and escape from the heat. Dinner starts late and the overall atmosphere is laid back with lot’s of outdoor restaurants and places to drink in the evening. Just like my recent London Photo Diary I took photo’s using my iPhone as I wandered through the historic city. View Post

Last week I was in Valencia (photo diary coming soon) and I was blown away by the architecture at the City of Arts and Science. The stretch of white buildings, bridges and structures were surrounded by vast pools of turquoise water that seemed to go on forever. It felt like a 60’s sci-fi dream and the last thing I expected to see in Spain or anywhere else. It’s a definite jaw dropper and instagram gold. If you are planning a trip to Valencia then it shouldn’t be missed.

The photo’s in this post were taken using my iPhone 7.
