Europe Travel Guides

Coming from the UK I am a sucker for cobbled streets, historic tales, crisp winter mornings and cities and countryside full of charm. Love the same stuff? You are in the right place!

Sure, the likes of Paris, Rome and London steal the city break headlines but why not throw in a side trip to Serbia, discover the cute and quaint country of Slovenia or head to the magic world of Iceland. Every day this continent steals my heart, let me show you why…

Safe travels,
Dan

Stockholm

One day in Stockholm Sweden, Cruise Itinerary

Stockholm is hands down one of my favourite cities and while I'd always suggest giving yourself plenty of time here, if you only have one-day in the city you can still see plenty thanks to its excellent and colourful metro system.

My favourite Algarve Hidden Gems and Beaches

The Algarve might be known as a sun-kissed British getaway, but there are still plenty of incredible and lesser-visited spots here. From west coast surfing to hilltop castles, throw in a side trip to Lisbon and you have the perfect Europe vacation all year round.
