If you’re a traveller who seeks out cultural experiences and fast-paced adventures then you probably know that the best destinations to visit are cities. Manmade jungles can offer just as much beauty as natural ones. You get to experience a land which might be foreign and new to you but in an incredibly compact manner. If you want to pack as many experiences into a short journey as possible then there’s no better way to do so than by visiting the bustling streets of a popular city.
Eating out alone is something I would never do at home. However, life as a solo traveller means that I have had to get used to it. Unless I forever wanted to find a friend, eat at my accommodation or make a packed lunch, I have had to toughen up. Now it is second nature when travelling but would I be as confident doing it at home? No!
There’s not one person that doesn’t spend time checking out the best bargains for city breaks while they’re at work. It’s the number one pastime when stuck in a stuffy office full of people! Planning out a city break instead of the usual beach or country location isn’t easy, and that’s mainly because of the sheer choice available to you as a traveller. Your chosen trip away doesn’t have to be one that replaces a hot beach holiday, but when you want to break up those long winter months, a mid-week trip to the city can be just what you need; especially in the run up to Christmas! There’s nothing more exciting than having something to look forward to, and a city break is the ticket to adventure.
If you’re looking for a break that combines romance, excitement and plenty to do- why not travel to a city? Sure, they’re not your average beach vacation, but vibrant cities have much to offer tourists and travellers. Great restaurants, plenty of shopping, entertainment and attractions and more all packed into one place. Plus lots of cities are very historic giving you a dose of history and culture too. Whether it’s a long weekend or a full two week vacation, if you fancy a city break for your next getaway, here are a few places to research!
Tours in France is popular not only because it is on the Loire Valley route but also due to its historical attractions. Tours is well known for its good food and wine.

Most people, when they decide to visit the United States, only really think about going to the popular tourist destinations like New York, Las Vegas and Florida. Although they are all fantastic places to spend time in, it means that travellers miss out on some of the ‘hidden’ gems the country has to offer. Maryland is a case in point. Less well-known than other states like Florida and California, the small state of Maryland, which sits on the shore of the Chesapeake Bay, is nevertheless home to some fantastic things to do and see. Here are some of them:
Ever since World War II, Orleans France has been struggling to return to its former glory as a wonderful city. I personally feel that it is already very beautiful and highly recommend you take a day or two out of your itinerary to spend some time in this lesser known UNESCO World Heritage city. Being just over 110 Kms (69 miles) from Paris there is no excuse not to fit it into your itinerary.
Paris, one of the major European cities, isn’t the ideal destination for the budget traveller. With accommodation costs reaching a massive high, it is hard to stretch your money.

Travelling is an adventure in and of itself, but some explorers want a little more from their travels than sitting on a beach for the majority of their holiday. After all, if you work at a desk for 40 hours a week, it makes sense that your idea of a break from work is a chance to stretch your legs and move your body at least a few times while on holiday. So if you’re looking for a holiday where you can get in touch with your inner adrenaline junkie, here are a few things you should consider.
For over two months now I have been living out of a car and travelling round Europe. I bought my Nissan X-trail the day before I drove down to the south of England and boarded a ferry to France. The reason why I bought it? Well, I could lie down fully when the back seats are down meaning I could sleep in my car comfortably.
Fast forward just a few days and I had a lovely camping car with curtains and a blow up bed. This post is all about how I did this and how I am now living out of a car.
