Budapest is without a doubt my favourite European city so far. From the moment we arrived, driving around the city and exploring Buda Castle blew my mind. We first explored the castle complex on the Buda side of the city.

Marseille and Millau, An Old City and A New Bridge

Marseilles you may ask – Why Marseilles? Maybe its that edgy seedy reputation that has some appeal that makes it fascinating and even more of a curiosity. Sure the city has a gritty side, after all it is an ancient port city, no nonsense and with purpose. I had a private guide and delved into…
