Featured Photo: Skyline of Riga, Latvia

I’ve taken lots of shots from the top’s of buildings or churches since getting to Europe so its only fitting I share them with you all.

Berlin however had the biggest turnout I have seen for these tours to date. Split into approx. 6 groups of 20 […]

Joel from will be travelling via bike in Europe. Now I’ve enjoyed my train travel throughout Europe, I’ve seen amazing views along the way and been able to just relax on the trip. […]
