Budget Travel in Iceland

By | May 10, 2014 at 4:50 pm | 14 comments

We love Iceland. We love it to bits. Yes, we admit that it has a reputation as expensive, and yes, that scares lots of people away. But it shouldn’t. We let it scare us away for a while, but once we eventually did visit we were kicking ourselves for not discovering this incredible country sooner. [...]

One of the best places to see the city of Brisbane is from Mount Coot-tha, a large hill overlooking the city. Mount Coot-tha is in itself a charming day trip, or evening destination – with a cafe and restaurant at the top. But for those who make the trek in the early morning hours before [...]

Beautiful Belgium in Photos

Belgium isn’t usually that high on most people’s European hit list, and that is a shame. I spent about 10 months living in Belgium in 2009 and was lucky enough to be able to explore this tiny, yet intense country.
