Speechless about Berlin

Image
Berlin is my favourite city; it leaves me speechless.

Unusual though this state is for me, it also makes it hard for me to blog about it. I could (and will) gush about all the wonderful things you can do in Berlin, about how it's a-okay to go out at 2am and not get home until people are heading to work the following day. None of that explains this city.

Railtrippin' Around the UK #SundayTraveler

Image
It occurred to me the other day that I can no longer travel as a youth. 

Now that I have turned 26 a lot of the discounts I was entitled to for various things no longer count, I am not in the youth category of 16-25 any more. This means that when my railcard expires at the end of August, I won't be able to renew it. I will no longer be able to travel using a discount.

One of these days I'll write a bit about living in Fuerteventura, but for now let's just look at a picture of the sunny beach in the town I used to live. 

How I Afford to Travel

Image
"How do you afford to travel?"

It's a question I hear time and again from friends, family, family-friends, even other traveller's want to know how we're all affording to get around. They're not meaning to be rude, or to pry into my finances, but with trips booked throughout each year for the past couple of years it's a question that would inevitably arise.

I'm in Berlin! #SundayTraveler

By the time you read this I will have been in Berlin for a day of my weekend trip to the city.




The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Image
Today's guest post comes from Ashley of A Southern Gypsy, she's a 20 something who is leaving behind the boring, stable life and preparing for long term travel. Like me, Ashley loves Harry Potter and has been lucky enough to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando! She is hoping to re-visit now all the new rides have been introduced- and I am very jealous. You can find Ashley on facebook, and twitter.
I’d say it’s a fair assumption that the Harry Potter franchise has impacted almost everyone in one way or another.  Everyone has most likely at least heard of it, is close to someone who loves it or they love it themselves.  It’s no secret that J.K. Rowling created something that will never die.

Right now I should be adding the last of my bits and pieces to my carry on for my trip to Berlin on Saturday!

Before You Travel, Insurance

Image
I know travel insurance is important, but it's a royal pain in the behind, right?

Especially if you're a backpacker because finding insurance that covers you for sleeping on a boat for a week, possibly jumping out of a plane, dog sledding, white water rafting, and running with the bulls is hard to come by.



Checking out Checkpoint Charlie #SundayTraveler

Image
Last time I went to Berlin, I didn't go to Checkpoint Charlie, and it's something I am really hoping to do this time around.

Beautiful Bath #SundayTraveler

If I decide to live in England for the rest of my life, I want to live in- or very close to- Bath.


A-Z Challenge Round Up

Wow, what a month that was! I learnt so much about the places I wrote about, and only hope I served them justice. Now I know more about the places I wrote about, the more determined I am to visit them.
