Almost a year ago I made a very important decision. With the sun rising over the mountains across from Reykjavik harbour, I asked my long suffering girlfriend to become my wife… luckily she said yes. It has taken a lot of planning but we have finally booked our wedding for June 2019. Very exciting! It will be a very small affair. Just close friends and … Continue reading Honeymoon – Where to go?
After a very underwhelming first night in Munich, I woke on the final day of the trip and shook off all the bad feelings ready to have a fresh new start and find something great in this city. I wasn’t disappointed! The first stop on our little walking tour was a small coffee shop on a back street near our hotel called Das Neue Kubitscheck. … Continue reading German Diaries Day 7 – Munich (Part 2)

Lindau, in case you have never heard of it, is a little town on an island poking out onto the north east corner of Lake Konstanz overlooking the Alps, Switzerland and beyond. The Gasthaus we had chosen for the night was on the outskirts of Lindau and so we thought it would be nice to venture into town and enjoy the sunset with the … Continue reading German Diaries Day 5 – Lindau
It was an early start on the fifth morning, ready for another day on the road towards some new and exciting adventures.
