"What's your favourite country?" "...favourite city?" "...favourite place in the world?" I don't have the answers to these questions, but this post comes pretty close. Here I have listed all of my *current* travel top threes. Ie. my very favourite places on the planet, and why.
Luckily for me, my recent jaunt to Portugal didn't end with pretty Porto and I got to spend a couple of days revisiting one of my favourite cities: Lisbon. This city is undeniably cool, strikingly beautiful and full of life and colour. I loved it the first time I visited and I loved it even more on my return.

However, my last day in Wroclaw was so full and lovely, that I felt it deserved it's own letter. I woke up to a city dusted in snow beneath blue skies. These truly are my … Continue reading My winter wonderland – from Wroclaw to Prague
Letter 154 Having not travelled solo for almost a year, I had almost forgotten the feeling of spending an evening with complete strangers that feel like old pals. Chatting about each others lives, places we've been and comparing cultures. It is truly remarkable and this is what Wroclaw will always signify for me. I only … Continue reading 8 nationalities, 1 table and lots of beer – Wroclaw
Letter 153 What started out as a need to escape my new adult working life and potential boredom at home, ended up in a crazy trip full of insane places, fantastic people and countless memories that I’ll treasure.
