    Should you go to Lisbon or Porto for a Portuguese city break? [Travel Linkup]

    It’s fair to say that I fell in love with Portugal on both of my city breaks. This fun loving country seems to be quite the winter sun destination for 2019, and I’ve had quite a few people contact me recently asking whether they should visit Lisbon or Porto for their Portuguese city break.

    72 hours in Gibraltar – Sunshine, Rock Stars and Monkeys

    We booked our 72 hours in Gibraltar without any expectations. If I’m entirely honest, I didn’t know very much about Gibraltar other than the history as a disputed territory, that there are a lot of monkeys, it has a huge rock and it’s a perfect place to catch some winter sun.

    10 reasons luxury city break Sunset Danube Cruise Budapest Hungary Adventures of a London Kiwi

    Straddling the Danube, the towns of Buda, Pest and Óbuda merged in the Nineteenth Century to form the capital city of Hungary. With over a thousand years of history separately, the cities coped through much turmoil, and the Magyar people emerged with a lightness of spirit that echoes through the streets. Now often known for the litany of stag parties, as the Paris of East or the Pearl of the Danube, Budapest is a city that we fell in love with. At one point I think I even grandly declared it my favourite city break ever – you can simply spa and sup, or get all culture vulture, or a mixture of everything thing you love the best. Read more
