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!
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!
When you don’t get a lot of days off to travel you have to learn to maximise the little amount of time you have! In today’s Mini Travel Guide I share my tried and tested itinerary on how to spend 4 Days in San Francisco, California. Including cool things to see and do, where to eat and where I stayed!
Did you know that there is a cable car in London? Normally cable cars are a transport method used to get up mountains quickly, but of course there are no mountains in London! Take a closer look at a London Underground map and there it is, the little stripy red line connecting Emirates Greenwich Peninsula and Emirates Royal Docks across the River Thames, and yep it happens to be run by my favourite airline, Emirates!
I thought I’d share my favourite thing I’ve done in Dublin, Ireland! If you’re after something that doesn’t involve alcohol or museums but is something a bit more active and challenging, yes, right in the city centre, I think I’ve found it! Located at the Dublin Grand Canal Dock (roughly a 25 minute walk from the main centre) is Wakedock, a cable wakeboarding park! What is wakeboarding? Think snowboarding, mixed with water skiing and you’re not far off! I first learnt to wakeboard behind a speed boat, cable parks eliminate the boat. The tow rope is attached to a cable that runs above the dock and uses a control box to stop, start and control it’s speed.
When it comes to theme parks and ‘extreme sports’, I’m the equivalent of a plane spotter. Not only do I love a good kick of adrenaline, but I’m a sucker for the stats; height, speed, depth, inversions, g force etc etc but AGE isn’t normally something that comes up very often. Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark is the 2nd oldest amusement park in the world!
