Weekend in Chicago: Itinerary for 3 days in Chicago + map

I first visited Chicago all the way back in 2010 and my recollection of the city had become somewhat hazy so I decided it was high time I go back. This time I returned to The Windy City with the sole purpose of writing this detailed weekend itinerary so I hope you find it useful! I’ve visited in both summertime and winter now and I’d suggest visiting in summer if you can. Winter is just brutal and with that wind, it makes it difficult to walk around for too long. Summertime brings warmer...

21 best things to do in Rio de Janeiro

My trip to Rio was supposed to be my first stop on a 2-week itinerary that also included Ilha Grande, Sao Paulo and Iguassu Falls.  But then Rio de Janeiro sucked me in and I never left. I spent the entire two weeks exploring the city, laying on the beach, drinking caipirinhas and making new friends.  In part I stayed because I was visiting Brazil during the country’s winter months and Rio was one of the warmest places to be, but I also stayed because there’s so much to see and do...

Visiting the Giant’s Causeway: Things to know

The Giant’s Causeway is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located on the north coast of Northern Ireland near Bushmills. It’s pretty incredible- a collection of around 40,000 Basalt rocks, mostly in hexagonal shapes (although some are tall columns), that act like stepping stones protruding from the ocean....

Backpacking Australia: The ultimate guide

My first ever big solo trip was to Australia when I was 21. I visited Lagos Portugal for a vacation with my friend and while I was there I met lots of Aussies who told me I should pay a visit to the Land Down Under. Since I’d just left university and wasn’t sure what to do with my life, I thought that didn’t seem like a bad idea, so I did some bartending and saved up enough money to spend 6 weeks backpacking Australia. ...

25 hotels in Paris with a view of the Eiffel Tower

One of the most popular Instagram shots seems to be the classic hotel room shot overlooking the Eiffel Tower.

But which hotels can you see the Eiffel Tower from? There are actually quite a few hotels in Paris with a view of the Eiffel Tower, so I’ve put together a list of the best ones!...

17 best things to do in Benidorm

Benidorm hasn’t always had the best reputation. Many people think of it as Britain in the sunshine; British pubs, karaoke bars, football shirt-wearing tourists, lads on stag parties, pensioners on mobility scooters…the destination is synonymous with the “Brits abroad” stereotype. It’s such a stereotype that there’s even a TV sitcom with the same name. While Benidorm does have those things, there’s so much more to the city than that. Visit Benidorm invited me to explore the other...

3 days in Lisbon itinerary

Lisbon is without a doubt one of the prettiest cities in Europe. It also happens to be one of the most affordable European cities to visit, so it’s a great spot for a quick city break that won’t break the bank. Numerous low cost airlines fly to Lisbon within Europe and you can often find some great flight deals to Lisbon from the US too. If you’re thinking about spending a long weekend in Lisbon, I’ve put together a 3 day itinerary that includes all the major sights, plus the magical...

Two days in Venice: Perfect weekend in Venice itinerary

Built entirely on water, Venice is like no other place on Earth. I’ve been to several places with the title of “little venice”, but nowhere compares to the real Venice. What makes Venice so unique is that the waterways are the roads. When I saw a Venetian fire engine floating down a narrow backstreet canal, that’s when I stopped and thought “this place is pretty damn cool!” A visit to this magical city is a bucket list experience and no matter how many times I visit, I’m always in...

Gozo day trip from Malta: The ultimate guide

Gozo is a neighboring island of Malta which is easily accessible by ferry as a day trip. If you’d like to a bit more time there you could decide to split your holiday between Malta and Gozo, or you could just spend one day in Gozo and see the highlights. I visited Gozo with a few blogger friends and we took the ferry from Cirkewwa in Malta, which is on the north coast of the island. We departed in the morning and returned about 6pm, although we wished we had longer. You can check the ferry...
