Amsterdam Canals

Cardiff Airport recently announced that it was expecting 35,000 passengers over the Christmas period – up 9% on last year – with the most popular destination being Amsterdam.

Having recently taken the short KLM hop over myself, I can’t say I’m surprised. It’s a gorgeous, picturesque city, with the city centre located just minutes away from the airport by public transport.

And the best thing? My return flight cost me less than £100! If you’re looking for a great destination for an affordable mini-break in 2017, this is the one. View Post

I spent 4 days in Lisbon at the beginning of July and fell head over feet for it’s chilled out atmosphere with a cool city edge.

After much deliberation, I’ve managed to condense an unforgettable few days in to this – my guide to the perfect 48 hour mini-break in Lisbon (which includes lunch cooked by a top chef, a private yacht, a rooftop swimming pool – and a tipsy tuk tuk tour of the city to boot)! View Post

Around this time 12 months ago, I had just returned from an absolutely epic trip to New Orleans, thanks to being invited to attend a friend’s wedding.

It’s only because Facebook is now spamming me with ‘memory’ posts that I realised that I never got around to blogging about our time spent in one of the coolest places on earth. So here I am, making up for it, with a round-up of how we spent 48 (well, more like 96) hours in New Orleans. View Post
