1. Our Trip to Iceland – Day Five

    I woke up on our last morning in Iceland without the need for an alarm clock. We did not have much to do at all on this day before we needed to head to the airport so we had a lazy morning and sat in bed until 9:30am before getting dressed and having breakfast downstairs in our hotel. (more…)

  2. Our Trip to Iceland – Day Three

    Ever since I had seen a photo of Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and Black Diamond Beach, I had desperately wanted to visit so waking up early at 6:30am to see them at sunrise was not difficult in the slightest. The key to clothes for this morning was even more layers than usual and lots of them. After getting dressed, we left the hotel just after 7:00am and started the twenty minute drive towards Jökulsárlón – I do not think we saw another car on the road at all. (more…)

  3. Our Trip to Iceland – Day Two

    As we had an early start on our first full day in Iceland, I had set my alarm for 6:30am. Thankfully I had slept well and as I knew we had a lot planned, it was easy to get out of bed ready for the long day ahead. After having a shower and getting dressed, we made our way downstairs for an early breakfast. (more…)

  4. Our Trip to Iceland – Day One

    I do not really remember too much about my first visit to Iceland. It was seventeen years ago when myself and a group of work colleagues spent less than twenty four hours in Reykjavik and as it was December, it was dark for most of the time we were there. So ever since then, despite being able to say that I had been to Iceland, I could not really say that I had seen much of it at all so it has always been on my list of places to go back to. (more…)

  5. At the Top at The Burj Khalifa – Dubai

    I’ve been to Dubai numerous times since my first visit in 1998 and have seen the city grow and expand to what it has become today and yet the sight of the Burj Khalifa is still such an astounding one as you simply cannot believe how tall it actually is until you are standing next to it. Last year whilst on holiday in Dubai, we finally took the opportunity to visit the Burj Khalifa which at 829.8 metres high is presently the tallest building in the world. (more…)

  6. The Pompompurin Cafe – Hong Kong

    For my final trip to a character cafe last year in Hong Kong, I decided to visit the Pompompurin Cafe. I will admit I did not know anything about Pompompurin apart from the fact that he is a Sanrio character. I soon discovered he is a golden retriever dog who wears a brown beret (according to his owner he looks like a pudding with his beret on and purin is Japanese for pudding), was born on the 16th April (a sunny day), loves caramel pudding and collects shoes.

  7. How to Get From Copenhagen Airport to Malmö by Train

    When we visited Copenhagen for my birthday in October, we took the first flight in the morning from Heathrow as we always do whenever we fly somewhere in Europe. As we landed so early into Denmark, we decided that the only thing to do was to get the train from the airport across the Oresund Bridge to Malmö so we could both tick Sweden off on our list of countries we have visited.
