City Guides

Cities around the world can be some of the most interesting places to visit; cultural hubs with a mixture of old and new. Read my city guides below including Rome, Paris, Oslo and the luxurious Monte Carlo.

Each of the guides offers advice for anyone looking to visit, tops things to do and why each should or shouldn’t be on your wish list!

Budget Things to Do in Oslo

Budget Things to Do in Oslo

In roughly 27 hours I hit the main tourist attractions in Oslo and also opted for the budget route as it’s one of the more expensive cities I’m visiting this summer. After spending £20 on a chicken dinner when I arrived, I didn’t want to ‘waste’ money on entrance fees and took to walking by foot rather than public or private transport. This was a great decision as wandering through residential and quieter areas gave me a glimpse into normal Nordic life in the city, while I earned my first daily total of 20k on the FitBit.

Bergen Park Life and Norwegian Fjords Cruise

Bergen Park Life and Norwegian Fjords Cruise

This morning the weather had taken a downturn and gone cloudy, yet it was still warm and there was lots more to see. During the complimentary breakfast at the hotel’s waterside, I felt so relaxed it was unreal. The view which yesterday had been bright and bathed in sunshine, still held it’s own against the elements and proved you don’t need good weather to enjoy the view.

First Impressions of Visiting Bergen, Norway

First Impressions of Visiting Bergen, Norway

My first day was a fantastic start. The flight was quicker than expected with amazing views of the fjords on descent, and before I knew it, I was stood in the fish market of Bergen after a very hot coach ride from the airport (the air con was broken in 28C heat!). The appetising smell was very welcoming and as I did a 360 degree turn, the greenery was stunning.

My Interrail: A Route through Europe

My Interrail: A Route through Europe

*Updated 2018. When I left University my plan was to go interrailing with a couple of friends but the trip didn’t materialise, which was definitely a good thing for my wallet. It also allowed me to get into a pretty good career path where three years on I’m confident enough to take a summer off exploring.
