Our Top Five Viewed Travel Blogs
London, United Kingdom
If you’re headed for London it’s most likely you’ll arrive at Heathrow airport which has five terminals and is one of the busiest airports in the world, if not the busiest. The expat community in London (Kiwi’s, Aussie’s & South African’s) is huge but you have so many other cultures living in the city and this is what makes it the largest city in Europe.....

New York City, America
New York would have to be one of our favourite cities. The Big Apple as they say is definitely worth visiting and has it all, attractions, night life, shopping, Broadway shows, restaurants, museums, sporting events and diverse cultures. It’s one of those places you can visit and never want to leave..... Things to do in New York
Melbourne is located in Victoria, a southern state of Australia. Famously nicknamed “The Most Livable City”, there is so much to see and do in this historical and eccentric city. This beautiful city is known as the capital of fashion and coffee, and the home of arts and culture... Things to do in Melbourne
Visiting a Disneyland resort is something I’ve wanted to do since I was 8 years old and in June 2012 at the age of 30, my wish finally came true. The build up was huge and I could not wait for the day to come. As they say, it’s the happiest place on earth!..... Things to do at Disneyland Paris
Berlin was once separated by the Berlin wall, erected in 1961 and separated the city into two parts for more then 28 years. The wall separated East Germany from West Berlin and became a symbol of the cold war. Berlin was completely divided and it was not until 9th November 1989 that the wall was pulled down.......

Our Top Five European Festival Blogs
Oktoberfest is without doubt the best party in Europe and this is the third time I have attended the yearly beer drinking festival. As we did not allow much time to book in advance and all the hostel/hotel packages had sold out so we stayed at the Thalkirchen Camp Ground.... Oktoberfest Reviews
La Tomatina, Spain
Being apart of the largest tomato fight in the world was always up there with things to do in Europe. The festival takes place on the last Wednesday in August and everybody descends on a small town called Bunyol, not far from Valencia. The fight lasts a little over 1hour and thousands of people from all over the world come to take part.... Tomato Festival in Bunyol
Lying in the Basque Country is Pamplona, home of the San Fermin Festival where ever year thousands of adrenaline junkies and onlookers come to watch the notorious 'Running of the Bulls'.... Pamplona Reviews
Glastonbury, United Kingdom
It is hard to sum up the Glastonbury Music Festival in one short blog, but I’m sure as hell going to try. First of all, Glastonbury is not just any ordinary music festival. It is a mind-blowing experience that offers an escape from our everyday mundane lives.... Glastonbury Music Festival Information
Hogmanay takes place in Edinburgh, Scotland and celebrates the New Year. The Hogmanay festival is one of the largest in the world and, in my opinion, Europe’s best. Each year thousands of people head to Edinburgh to celebrate... Hogmanay New Years Reviews
