I first came across the Pulpit Rock hike when I was researching for a trip I took around Norway back in August 2015. I immediately knew I wanted to do this walk and experience the amazing view over the Lysefjord for myself but there was no way we could figure out how to fit it into our two week itinerary as it would involve a specific trip to Stavanger, which was a little too far from Bergen to justify taking the time for. Instead I vowed to come back and tackle it someday in the not too distant future.
So if you follow me on social media you’ll know that this time last month I was about to embark on a two long trip travelling around some of the highlights of Sri Lanka. During the whirlwind trip I visited a bunch of different places, staying only 1 or 2 nights in most areas, and soon discovered that there are many different places to suit all kinds of travellers no matter where your interest lies.
For those of you who have been following the blog a little while you’ll know that I went to Norway back in 2015 and part of that trip included travelling from Bergen up through the fjords to Tromso. Since then the Norweigan fjords have remained one of the most spectacular places I’ve ever visited and in the spirit of celebrating the fact that I will be returning to get a glimpse of them in April (more on that later) I wanted to share a little bit about how to best experience this magical area of the world and capture it on camera.
If you’re passionate about photography then this one is definitely for you, but even if you’re just interested in making your friends jealous with your holiday snaps when you get home or for some reason need convincing to book a trip to one of the most stunning destinations in Europe then read on…
Back in the summer I took a solo jaunt to Milan for a few days and whilst I was there I figured I’d be silly not to hop on a train to Lake Como. The Italian lakes are one of the most popular destinations in Italy and with their reputation for being one of the most beautiful places in the world I had to see what all the fuss was about!
There was just one problem… like Paris, Lake Como is a destination known for being romantic. In fact it is a popular honeymoon destination, so solo travel there was bound to be awkward right? Wrong! There are actually loads of reasons that you absolutely should go in alone in Lake Como!
Merry Christmas folks! It’s been a hot minute but this time of the year is always incredibly busy so I should’ve predicted that my resolution to post more frequently would fail miserably. I fully intend to use my Christmas break to get ahead of myself with some content for next year though because I am soooo behind and I have a super exciting trip coming up in March (which you’ll have seen me talk about on Facebook and Twitter if you follow me over there).
Enough of the chit-chat I’m here to share with you my whistle stop trip to Zurich earlier this month. We actually managed to squeeze all of this in to one weekend – that’s right, no time off work just a super early flight on Saturday and late back on Sunday! Of course it coincided with the only snow the UK have had all year so fun travel chaos ensued on our return but it was nothing compared to the snow we experienced in Zurich. To say we were unprepared might be an understatement…
