14 Mistakes NOT to Make on Your First Trip to Italy

Italy is the one country I've travelled to the most, and written about the least. And today is the start of my journey to fix that! Perhaps there was just so much to say about this beautiful country, or too many cities to count which stole my heart. Either way, it’s time to put my thoughts to (digital) paper and share with you my tips for exploring Italy! I always find when looking back that sometimes it's easier to express what NOT to do than what you should do. Everyone is so different and has different ideas of what makes the perfect trip. But there are definitely some great life lessons everyone can find something to take away from my travels (and my travel mistakes.)

Your Complete Guide to Exploring the Natural Beauty of Ærø Island

Ærø or 'Aero' is one of those destinations in Denmark that doesn't get a lot of attention but is a hidden gem that any traveller who is anxious to find something a little bit different should try their best to visit. Ærø is a tiny island surrounded by the Danish Baltic Sea - only 30 km in length and 8 km wide. But it being so small makes it the perfect place for travellers to visit and explore either on foot or by bike.

Barcelona is one of the most artful and vibrant cities I've ever visited. Every corner you turn feels like stepping into a colourful daydream.

Things to See and Do at the Kelvingrove Museum

One of the museums I had been most looking forward to visiting in Glasgow, was the Kelvingrove. The Kelvingrove was designed by Sir John W. Simpson and E.J. Milner Allen and opened in 1901, as the Palace of Fine Arts. It was supposed to be for the Glasgow International Exhibition that was going on that year but after the exhibition, it continued here showing off some of the best Scottish and international artists around the world.

Self Guided Walk Along Petrin Hill, Prague

The walk takes about 30 minutes; it's a bit steep but walking through the woods and trees as you climb is a pleasantly quiet experience. We chose to walk down the hill and very much could see the appeal of wanting to take the stroll up and avoid the lines for the funicular. But it was rather rainy, and we figured it would be best to go with the funicular option. 

Thorvaldsen Museum Tour

The Thorvaldsen Museum is unique in the fact that it houses works from one single artist, that of Bertel Thorvaldsen. The art displayed in the museum spans Thorvaldsen's entire career and even contains pieces of work the museum had to fight to bring into their collection from their original home in Rome (where most of his work was commissioned). The Museum is a delicately and lovingly curated experience and takes you on an intimate journey throughout his lifetime of moments frozen in marble.
