Harris River Dam and Harris River Estate | Collie

Today I wanted to show Richard a little bit of Collie. It was a bit of a hard decision, I forgot how much there’s to do around here. We settled on Harris River Dam simply because it was closest and a good starting point. We were the only ones there, it was so peaceful and…

Europe 2016 | Day 15 | Berlin

Today we wanted to tick off the touristy places and see how this city was affected by the Nazi reign. DO I had already seen a checkpoint on my way to Berlin but had to check out the famous Checkpoint Charlie. It was very stylised, I think seeing the larger and abandoned Checkpoint Alpha was much…

Europe 2016 | Day 14 | Berlin

After an awful night of food poisoning I was determined not to miss out on seeing Berlin. DO The start was a bit slow but we decided to do a walking tour. We did it through Original Berlin Tours. This tour was focused on street art but still had a bit of history. It was…

Europe 2016 | Day 13 | Amsterdam to Berlin

Europe 2016 | Day 12 | Amsterdam

My last day in Amsterdam, I’m sad to leave this great city but also ready for Berlin! DO Today I went to the Heineken Experience, I booked the VIP tour and it was the best decision. It was great to get the extra information and the guide was great fun. We learnt about the breweries…

Europe 2016 | Day 11 | Amsterdam

DO This morning I went to the Moco Museum. It shows pieces from Andy Wathol and Banksy. These artists are such inspirations and get you thinking about the world we live and how we interpret the simplest to the most horrific things. My favourite pieces were Banksy’s Swat Van and Warhol’s Princess Beatrice. This is…

Europe 2016 | Day 10 | Amsterdam

The pace of Amsterdam has changed a lot today, everyone has left me but it’s kind of nice to take this city in slowly. DO This morning I didn’t rush, I wanted to enjoy CityHub as much as I could. It was a great hotel! Once I checked into my new hostel I went to…

Europe 2016 | Day 9 | Amsterdam

Today I have never been so excited and scared at the same time… It was definitely an interesting day. DO We went to Zaanse Schans, its like you’ve stepped back through time. This village has windmills, a cheese factory, a chocolate factory, animals and people dressed in old attire and clogs! It was the cutest…

Europe 2016 | Day 8 | Amsterdam

Today Jess arrives, I’m so excited to experience this gorgeous city with her. DO After getting a little lost I finally found my new hotel and Jess!! We dropped our bags off then went for a wonder. We somehow found our way to this market, I think it was Harlemmer Burt Fair but I’m not…

Europe 2016 | Day 7 | Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a city with it all, it has the nightlife, culture, architecture and history. Plus the canals are stunning. DO Today I went to the Anne Frank House. This was an incredible experience. You really got an insight into what it was like to be a in hiding for two years and how the reign…

Europe 2016 | Day 6 | Paris to Amsterdam

Today I had to say goodbye to Paris which was sad but not too bad since I get to go on the first leg of my Busabout. My next stop is Amsterdam! DO Saying goodbye to Paris was sad, I could’ve stayed there another week and not see everything I wanted to. It’s a gorgeous…

Europe 2016 | Day 5 | Paris
