10 things to do in Durham

A visit to Durham in North East England offers so much! I recently spent a weekend in Durham because it has been shortlisted for the U.K City of Culture 2025 which is an extremely prestigious and exciting award. The winning location will be decided and announced later in May 2022 and after visiting many of the top Durham attractions across the county, plus hearing about many events that have been put on in the area recently, I can certainly see why it has been shortlisted and it fully deserves...

Manchester United Museum & stadium tour! How good is it?

Manchester United and Old Trafford are one of the most famous teams and stadiums in the world, so it’s pretty cool that you can really easily book and go on an Old Trafford Stadium Tour and visit the Manchester United Museum. In fact, doing a tour of Manchester United stadium is probably even easier than you think, they literally have time slots available all day when matches are not on and the tickets are not that expensive either....

8 reasons to visit the Red Centre in Australia!

Visiting the Red Centre in Australia is a must! The Red Centre is the very centre of Australia within the Northern Territory state and it’s known as the Red Centre because its landscape is, well, very red!

10 things to do in the Northern Territory on my bucket list

The Northern Territory of Australia, one of the eight states in Australia and also known as the NT is an incredible part of the country! Although this area is VERY empty in places, it’s also FULL of wildlife, national parks, beaches and dramatic (very red!) scenery.

Review | Kılıç Ali Paşa Hamam, Istanbul & what to expect from a hamam

Going to a Hammam, or a Turkish Bath as they are also known as, is one of the best things to do in Istanbul! It gives you an ultra-relaxing few hours away from the busy streets and sightseeing, and gives you an insight into this old Turkish tradition! On my recent trip to Istanbul, I visited Kılıç Ali Paşa Hamami which is well located in the Karakoy.
