Cuba is an exciting country to visit but it can also be quite overwhelming when you first get there. Even planning in advance is not straight forward and it’s definitely one of those places where I wouldn’t recommend just ‘showing up’. But fear not, this post will cover all the things that you need to know before you have… Continue reading CUBA SURVIVAL GUIDE
Havana is everything I hoped it would be and so much more. The city is an artistic haven; intense yet calm, exciting but relaxing, colonial but revolutionary, basically a paradox in every single way. Full of bohemian cafes and bars and music pouring out of every corner, Havana should be on everyone’s list of places to… Continue reading 72 hours in Havana

Easy to reach from Naples and Sorrento via the Circumvesuviana train, this is a place not to be missed! I’ve… Continue reading Pompeii, another tick off the bucket list

Having said that, it’s not as… Continue reading Pizza in Napoli!
