An Afternoon of Naples Sights

I was struggling to like Naples, it just felt like some form of chaos everywhere I looked and it wasn’t sitting well with me. In an attempt to sway my feelings towards the good I set off on foot to see what I could find in an afternoon. Marking out Castel Nuovo, the Royal Palace and finally the National Archaeological Museum as places to see on this very warm italian […]


Travel Blogger Friday 39

When I made the decision to leave the comfort of Australia for the unknown in Europe one factor didn’t worry me as much as it does other people, money.

Having just had my wallet and budget for Copenhagen torn to pieces I was ever so┬ácautious┬álanding in Stockholm for a few days. Sweden was to be the turning point for my major expenses but that didn’t mean I could just cut loose as I knew all too well if things got crazy here I’d spend my entire time in the Baltic States making up for it. Again greeted with yet […]
