I spent the past week camping in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, which, not surprisingly, is a national park along the Pembrokeshire coast in west Wales. The coastline really is striking, with jagged cliffs, beautiful beaches and an abundance of wildlife – we saw Welsh Mountain ponies, porpoises, seals, jellyfish… We stayed just outside the town St Davids, in a campsite called Caerfai Bay Farm Campsite, which was sat right by the coast so we could see the sea from our tent. Here are some photos I took.

Living aboard a narrowboat probably appeals to a lot of people; its cheap, mobile and its an alternative lifestyle. My dad lives aboard a narrowboat; a 40 foot with a Lister SR3 engine called “Puffin.” And he’s loving the boat life: “I love the freedom, its a cheap way to live, its a different way to live and you get to meet a lot of interesting people.” Whenever I mention to someone that he lives full time on a narrowboat, they’re always quite fascinated by this, so I thought I’d write about it. Puffin has a toilet, a shower, 2 beds,…

To celebrate my 21st birthday, I decided to go to Amsterdam for a long weekend (cliche, I know). I’d heard a lot about this city, from the Red Light District to the beautiful canals, and as it was a mere 45 minute flight from London, it seemed like a great place to spend my birthday weekend. I found Amsterdam to be very pretty- dotted with canals, flower markets and gorgeous town houses which made it lovely to stroll through. During the day, it had a very laid-back vibe to it, but the nightlife was pretty vibrant. There isn’t a whole…

We figured that seeing as Athens is a short train journey from the ocean, it would be worth our time to head to the port and book a ferry to visit a nearby island. The most accessible port from Athens is Piraeus, which is a 20 minute train journey away from the metro station Omonoia (the green metro line took us directly from Omonoia to Piraeus for a mere 2 euros). When we arrived in Piraeus, we found that there were many ferry booking agencies and so inquired at a few about prices and nearby islands. We decided on Aegina, which…

Me and my good friend Kimmi spent a week exploring Greece’s ancient capital city, Athens. Before arriving, I’d heard that Athens was dirty, ugly and overly busy, but I have to disagree with this. I adored it. Ancient ruins, quirky street art, endless markets, gorgeous food… its one of my favourite European cities. The streets are a total maze, made worse by the fact that the road signs are in Greek numerals, so navigation was a slight challenge. It took us a couple of days to get our bearings, although I find that getting lost is always part of the fun!…
