About Me

IMG_132830 something girl with a serious travel bug – exploring new and beautiful places is my passion along with taking photos to capture all those memories.  Constantly planning my next trip.

Always looking for new places to explore so if you wish me to visit a destination please feel free to get in contact.

Had a great end of the year exploring the very beautiful cities of Lisbon and Porto as well as a return to the lovely Krakow and discovering Warsaw and Gdansk.  New Year’s Eve saw me in Disneyland Paris for a magical start to the New Year and then headed to Bratislava – largely for a trip to the Titanic Exhibition but also to explore this gorgeous city.

May saw me in Venice, Greece and Montenegro and to unwind after all that I managed to escape for a spa break in June.  July I visited the beautiful city of Saint Petersburg and then 3 weeks in Cuba.  Just returned from Madeira spending a week hiking on this beautiful island and am now off to Luxembourg, Belgium and France for a crazy 10 days exploring 10 different Christmas markets! Before the end of the year I hope to spend the night in an ice hotel in Finland.  Already planning South America & East Africa for next year – any suggestions gratefully received!

My website is in the continuous process of being updated so please continue to check back for details of my previous trips and future adventures!  amanda x
