Airport Guide for Berlin

To me Berlin is very marmite. You either love it or hate it. Not much in between.

And what shall I say… I don’t love marmite….

Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying I hate Berlin. Not really. But it would not make it into my top five of cities (hey here’s an idea for a new blog post… stay tuned). Nor would it be my first (second or third) choice of places to live in Germany.

Easiest Way to get around Rome

Let’s just assume that most of you have the same habit as me when it comes to city trips. I tend to take the plane rather than the car to get there, meaning I have to rely on public transport to get around once arrived … but then I can think of very few major cities where I would consider driving around in a car a good idea (actually I might struggle to think of any?)

So Rome was no exception.

London on a budget

London is the greatest city in the world (well if you ask me, which is why I (and a couple of million other people) chose to live here.
