Northern Ireland – Game of Thrones Country

If you’re a fan of the hit TV show ‘A Game of Thrones’ then a visit to Northern Ireland is a must! I’ve already been fortunate to visit other countries that provided locations for Game of Thrones- Iceland, Girona, Duobrovnik in Croatia but Northern Ireland is the home base for Game of Thrones with the… Continue reading Northern Ireland – Game of Thrones Country

Northern Lights Chasing in Norway

We left cold, windy London for even colder Tromso in Northern Norway (about 15 degrees colder: from 10 degrees in London down to negative 5). We wandered along dark and peacefully quiet, snow covered streets in search for our hotel. We landed in Tromso in the evening but decided the negative temps and darkness wasn’t… Continue reading Northern Lights Chasing in Norway

New York City on a Budget

Earlier this year I impulsively bought flights for a week in the famous New York City, not realising, until closer to the time of the trip, so a bit too late, that New York isn’t a cheap place. My trip to New York was just for a week but I had to budget smart to… Continue reading New York City on a Budget
