So, let me tell you why you should visit Belgrade for you next city break, before sharing my favourite places to visit on both sides of Belgrade, and of course some recommendations for places to eat and drink!

I think it's safe to say that we've all been drinking a bit more at home recently, right? Without being able to go to the pub, but with the sun still shining almost every weekend, I've really enjoyed drinking wine at home. With so much choice out there and so many places to buy your lockdown wine, I wanted to share the best wine I've drunk during lockdown and the best places to buy them.

Discovering Traditional Bulgarian Food in Sofia

Discovering Traditional Bulgarian Food in Sofia

Sofia
Did you know that you can take a free food tour in Sofia? Food tours are a great way to quickly get to know a place through traditional cuisine, and they're even better when they don't cost you anything. With just a couple of days to spend in Sofia, the tour gave me an insight into both modern and traditional Bulgarian in Sofia, which I then went on to supplement with my own foodie discoveries.

Leeds
Hands up if your daily, government approved walk has become an integral part of your life? I'm acting as if my daily walk is the most important part of my day and that if I miss it a) the government might take it away; or b) the world will end. I'm appreciating the canal towpath near by flat like I never have before! Here's how I've been keeping myself entertained on my daily walk.

Things to Do in Wroclaw: A Weekend in the City of Dwarfs

Wroclaw
Wroclaw is one of the most beautiful places that I've visited and the perfect place to visit for a weekend. You can explore on foot: wandering through the Old Town, island hopping (kind of) and stopping for plenty of pierogi. Most of my weekend in Wroclaw was spent eating, but I did have time for sightseeing too. Here are the best things to do in Wroclaw, and why it's the city of dwarfs!

Getting Itchy Feet? Virtual Travel Experiences to Keep You Entertained During Lockdown

Getting Itchy Feet? Virtual Travel Experiences to Keep You Entertained During Lockdown

Leeds
I started this blog post by researching virtual travel experiences across loads of different websites, watching videos to see what was out there and compiling a big old list. And then I realised that actually, good old Google seems to be pretty much all you need to travel across the globe from your armchair. Honestly, Google has virtual travel down! Google Earth has vastly improved since it's early days, and Google Arts and Culture lets you visit museums, art galleries, famous landmarks and even national parks.
Staying Positive During Coronavirus – Positivity Journaling

Staying Positive During Coronavirus – Positivity Journaling

Leeds
In my last blog post about looking after your mental health during Coronavirus, I mentioned that I've been finding journaling helpful in maintaining my mental health over the last couple of weeks and staying positive during Coronavirus. In particular, I said that when I'm feeling anxious or stressed I use one page of my journal to list the things that are bothering me, and the opposite page to list two positives for every negative. If you look after your own mental health and work on remaining positive during Coronavirus, you'll be able to pass the positivity on to other people and it will spread to those who need it even more than you do.

The Best Bars in Wroclaw for Wine and Craft Beer

Wroclaw
Wroclaw is a fantastic destination for explorers, foodies and those fancying a relaxed, boozy weekend in Poland. I recently spent a couple of days there, exploring the city on foot, eating many, many pierogi and drinking far more than was sensible for riding e-scooters afterwards! As a result, we 'researched' several wine and craft beer bars over the weekend. Here are my tops picks for the best bars in Wroclaw for wine and craft beer.
10 Things to Do at Home During Coronavirus – Making the Most of Lockdown

10 Things to Do at Home During Coronavirus – Making the Most of Lockdown

Leeds
I'm jumping on the bandwagon a bit here with a 'things to do at home during Coronavirus lockdown' post, but the more ideas out there the better in my opinion! In the current climate, staying home is the best thing that you can do for the health of the country (unless of course you are a key worker, thank you guys for keeping the country running!). So why not shift that mindset from 'I'm not allowed outside' to 'I get to stay home with a nice cup of tea' and make the most of your time? Try to see it as a positive: not only are you pretty much saving the world just by staying at home, but you have so much time to do things you might not usually have the chance to do!
