    Krakow Things To Do | A European City Break

    My only disappointment with our city break to Krakow is that we hadn’t visited sooner. The medieval city had been calling our names for a fair amount of time, so one grey January day I seized the wanderlust zeitgeist and booked in a load of city breaks – including Krakow. Finally! As a result, this is my (entirely subjective) Krakow what to do list.

    We visited in May as the weather should be fairly settled, and it’s the beginning shoulder season (compared to July/August when a lot of schools have their summer holidays) which means that tourist season hasn’t begun yet.

    Where to stay in Cappadocia: Our Goreme Cave Hotel

    Choosing where to stay in Cappadocia was a tough decision. I’m not being hyper dramatic when I say that I probably spent more time choosing this hotel than I did when I was choosing a wedding dress – and in the end, I made a decision via the less than scientific method of asking Mr Kiwi for two favourites, and flipping a coin. (The hotel, not the dress.)

    I love staying in quirky hotels – but they have to carefully tiptoe the line between bland and kitsch, and suit our travelling style. I adore the hotels that have a keen sense of place (it’s also a bonus when they come with animal custodians like our stay with Jasper at the Scarlet Hotel in Cornwall or the Pygmy goat neighbours in Austin, Texas) and are lovely to come back to at the end of the day.

    Our Favourite Things to do in Goreme, Cappadocia

    Ok, I’ll admit it. I was initially enticed to Goreme by the visions of hot air balloons silently floating above the ancient Turkish horizons. But, once we began researching our trip, I was intrigued by all of the things to do in Goreme and surrounding towns. Disclaimer: Contains an affiliate link which doesn’t cost you anything.

    Rich with history, natural beauty and perfectly set up for exploring, our tour guide told us all about how Goreme is a tourism epicentre for the region, but it was just what we needed with only 2.5 days in Cappadocia.

    A Long Weekend in Budapest (v.2.0)

    A couple of years ago our long weekend in Budapest was such a delight that my friend and I decided unanimously for a return visit.

    We met over a sunny weekday lunch to find a date, book the flights and decide where we were staying for the 5 days – the details simply fell into place with the tip-tip-tap of a few laptop keys.
