Where I’m Travelling this April

This March/ April  I am excited to say I will travelling to 4 different countries in 2 different continents. As someone who loves to travel, I am excited beyond belief and exceedingly privileged for these opportunities. Alongside that, however, I feel apprehension at the exhausting amount of movement in such a short time and also really proud of the role I played in getting those opportunities.

Hotel Review: Julian Club Hotel, Marmaris

A charity was kind enough to gift this holiday to my family, as a present for the caring role my grandmother had to take on once my mother died. We didn’t get to choose the time of year we went, and it ended up being in term time in October. This did not make me mad, I got to miss school for a holiday? Yaaaasssss. When we arrived in Turkey I had no idea what to expect, at 15 I wasn’t the most clued up on current events so I didn’t think Turkey was dangerous, it’s fair to say I viewed the country as no different from France or Spain.

I didn’t get into the Vatican City

Rome was the first city in Laurie and I’s Eurotour2k14, and it is something I do not regret. We had been in Rome for a couple of days before we decided to venture to the Vatican City. Being the middle of summer it was extremely warm so we decided to walk rather than get public transportation or a taxi. The roads and backstreets were beautiful and we managed to come across the Tiber river. I do regret not walking along the river bank. Continue reading “I didn’t get into the Vatican City”

Hotel Review – Hotel Casa 400 – Amsterdam

Shaneka and myself visited this hotel on our second trip to Amsterdam which I speak about in my Article – ‘6 Travelling Lessons Learned- Winter in Amsterdam’.

Super Nice for a Good Price 

After our experiences with the Student Hotel in Amsterdam we were apprehensive about what the cheap price of £123pp for 3 nights booking would get us, another seemingly clean and glossy hotel that ended up smelling like a farm – or would our research pay off?

First impressions were good! It was only  a short walk from Amstel Station Beneden – which is great in the cold when you have luggage! We had a tiny struggle to find the entrance but one we were in it was lovely. The staff were warm and personable and finding the room was not too difficult as there was a code for floor and area of the hotel because it is quite huge.
