The Berlin I got to know and fall in love with was funky and surprising! It was quirky and full of unexpected nooks and pops of colour amongst the grey. A lot of these spots are far less visited than the usual Berlin hotspot. Have a look at my travel story on the Liquidrom here, or explore your artistic options here.
I went here with no particular expectations of how the city or country should be, and so ended up hugely excited by all I saw. Go into a city with an open mind and you’re sure to enjoy yourself.
It’s known for being an expensive place, but I enjoyed it on a strict student budget and found a myriad of things to do for free (or very close to free, at least!). Read on here for my insider tips!
My trip to Turkey fell through a few years ago, and, needing to quickly book a flight somewhere, I ended up in London… again. Maybe it was just my disappointment at missing out on Turkey, but I thought there was nothing left for me to see in London.

For some tips or inspiration on where to go, have a read of my article written here.
The key to my heart is through my stomach. Ourense is where I tried proper octopus for the first time, and I can confirm that since then, every octopus dish I’ve tried in other parts of Europe has been a disappointment!
I can’t forget to mention that this is the town to visit to relax and unwind at the thermal baths. After a month of stress and studying with exams at University (okay, a slight overstatement with the whole studying thing, I mean, I was on exchange in Spain after all! It was far more important to study the ins and outs of sangria) we loved just chilling out (would be more accurate to say, ‘heating up’) in the water, with the view of the Galician mountains across from us.
