While travelling between London and Bosnia, I used Cologne in Germany as a stopover. As I only had around a day in the city, I stuck close to the Rhein, there’s actually loads of things to do in this area of Cologne. I love river walks, as are easy to navigate and good for people watching! Here’s how to spend one day in Cologne!
Ames Iowa is located around 30 miles north of Des Moines and is home to Iowa State University, one of the 3 universities that can be found in Iowa! It’s very much a ‘college town’ with a huge amount of pride and sense of community. Ames was recently named the best college town in America by 24/7 Wall St!
When I first looked into getting a drone, I was overwhelmed with the amount of accessories that you could buy for it, just like the GoPros packs with all the different mounts! My DJI Spark has been a bit of an ongoing investment, where I’ve been adding to my accessories as and when I find the need for something. I share with you my 5 must have DJI Spark Accessories that I think really make a difference!
There’s no escaping the fact that the Midwest experiences pretty cold winter temperatures and most people’s reactions is to escape and fly south for some much needed winter sun! However, despite the cold and snow, some great winter adventures can be had in the Midwest!

Whether you’re looking to enjoy the outdoors, or keep warm with fun indoor attractions, I think we’ve got you covered!
Back in 1984, Sarajevo was the host city for the Winter Olympics. They built a bobsled track on Trebevic Mountain (completed 1982) which continued to be used for races right up until the Bosnian War began in 1992. Because of the vantage point above the city it was then used by Military forces. When the war finished in 1996, the bobsled track lay abandoned, the costs to get it back to working condition were too high. It has since been covered in street art and graffiti and overtaken by the forests surrounding it. The Sarajevo bobsled track had been on my bucket list to visit for years. As a huge bobsleigh fan it was a must see and it didn’t disappoint me in the slightest!
If you’re after things to do in Belize, cave tubing is a popular choice! “Butts up! Nuts Up!” is as crude as it sounds, and depending on the level of the river, is something that you may hear multiple times throughout your trip! But more on that later! There are several different companies that offer cave tubing in Belize. I went with Belize Cave Tubing lead by Major Tom!
I’m guilty of escaping the European winter in favour of warmer climates but Europe actually has some amazing destinations that are great for a winter city break! For the sake of this post, we’ll consider winter to be from November to March/April, generally when the weather is still a little on the chilly side! These are all European cities that I have personally visited during the off peak season!
