Why Was Vienna’s Chocolate Cake An Accident?

Have you ever considered some of the foods you love were made accidental? We’ve all heard some of the most bizarre food inventions that made us laugh or entertained, however when it comes to impressing a Prince it’s either a life or death situation (Okay I joke, it wasn’t that serious). This was how the famous Sachertorte was born and how it became a traditional icon in Vienna (and across the globe).

Ratskeller [REVIEW £££]

Have you ever tried a traditional Bavarian cuisine? It’s a must do if you’re in Munich or anywhere on the southeastern German border. It’s hard to pick a restaurant, but I hope this one in particular sounds like a feast to remember. Ratskeller is based in a large cellar dating to the 19th century (1874 was the official date the restaurant opened). If you’re looking for a quiet meal that is not over your budget and love the historic decor this place is for you.

Why You Need To Visit Freetown Christiania

A colleague of mine told me if you’re going to visit Copenhagen you must also visit Christiania. Of course I questioned her. What’s so intriguing about this place? In her own words she said “It’s a land where people are independent of the Danish government and live in their own rules”. Now this is the part which got me thinking. A place inhabited by its own tribe.. surely they don’t want outsiders trespassing on their land? The moment I stepped foot in this town, all questions were put aside.

Two Days In Copenhagen [Mar 2018]

The Danish capital has been voted the happiest place in the world. Known for its instagrammable streets, shopping districts and Michelin star restaurants.. It’s a perfect getaway for anyone who loves to dine and enjoy some retail therapy. The city goes way back when it was first known as a fishing village and then years later it was ruled by the Danish empire, which is now homed to many historical landmarks and relics. My favourite part? Most of the top attractions are a walking distance. Perfect for anyone who enjoys exploring by foot.

Two Nights In Berlin [Feb 2018]

Despite Berlin’s dark history the city has worked hard to rebuild what it is now. A cultural hotspot for its art and architecture. The sky is unlimited when it comes to the city’s creativity. Cheap drinks you say? Berlin is the capital of that including the late night bars and restaurants. The city does not sleep. Deep down it has a very laidback lifestyle and personally the area was less chaotic than most of the cities I’ve visited.

Here’s what I got up to…
