    Taste of Evora, Portugal

    In the centre of Portugal, within the Alentejo region, sits a small and sweet city of Evora. Famous for its ancient Roman temple that proudly placed in the historic centre and the peculiar skeleton filled Chapel of Bones. Evora has become popular for its picture-perfect whitewashed houses, which are framed in yellow to ward off evil spirits. Exploring the city’s tiny cobbled streets can be challenging in the heat, so here’s my top 3 venues to escape the crowds, refresh and taste the local cuisine. Fabrica Dos Pasteis. Cafe by day, Bar by night. I consider myself a bit of a pastel de nata ‘snob’ – so much so, I…

    Pocket Size Prague, Cesky Kromlov

    Prague is known to be the city of a hundred spires, as it’s filled with gothic churches and castles – fit for a fairy tale. But just 2.5 hours away from the capital city sits a magical and miniature version, Cesky Krumlov. In the words of Ed Sheeran there’s a very dramatic ‘Castle on the Hill’, although the castle may seem like a ‘Tiny Dancer’ in comparison to its bigger brother, Prague (larger than 7 football pitches), it packs a punch of tales and mysterious history. So what is there to do in this bohemian city? Wander the castle grounds It’s rumoured that the castle is haunted by the Rosenberg…

    The Douro Valley, Portugal

    Boasting a curvaceous landscape of natural wonders, delicious food and good quality wine, the Douro Valley is one of Europe’s best kept secrets. Situated along and around the Douro river, just 85 km from Porto makes it easily reached by car. If taking a car, the road trip itself is super scenic with rolling hills of vineyards and olive trees, plus plenty of photo opportunities along the way. Boat tours are available from Porto’s riverside, but this journey will only cover a small section of the Douro. Don’t miss out on this gem, hire a car and stay a few nights, here’s a rough guide on what you can do…

    The Heart of The Ocean

    The heart of the ocean needs our help!  Far within reach, Antarctica lives a hostile and remote life, but this chilly continent should be in the front of our minds. Home to a great diversity of life, from penguins to polar bears. The Antarctic gives us a great understanding of our world and has a profound effect on the Earths ocean system and climate, therefore it’s important we take care of it. Greenpeace are striving to create the worlds largest protected area by creating an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary; although the UK government are yet to support it. Tut tut Britain! Fortunately we can change this by signing a petition by…

    Maintain an ‘Unjaded’ Zest

    We are the ones who are unbounded, we grab life with unjaded zest. We’ve decided to live the life of a nomad, to carry only our backpack around the world, rather than settle inside the comfort of a house and the security of what some describe as ‘a real job’. Although our Facebook posts make the office workers rage with envy, and our Instagram photos make them wish they could join us – being a traveller isn’t all glitz and glamour. When you’re on the road for an extensive period of time it can take its toll. My nomadic role is a tour guide, which means I can be on…

    Oh…Porto!

    Did you know… the word for ‘cool’ in Portuguese is ‘fixe’, which is pronounced ‘fish’? This is ironic, 1. because Porto serves up delicious and fresh seafood, and 2. It’s 100% frigging’ cool! Porto is Portugal’s second largest city and attracts students, artists and tourists to its universities, art academies and museums. I love this city because of its arty-farty nature, strips of boutique shops and buzzing atmosphere. Porto isn’t perfect, but that’s what makes it unique and here’s why you should visit. The Port Wine Porto’s most famous export is Port Wine, to which the city gives its name. Thanks to strong Portuguese – English alliance, wine traders set…
