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.

Living Out of a Car and Travelling Europe

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.
