About Me

I've visited 35+ countries over the past 14 years or so, many more than once, and almost always as solo traveller. I usually organise my trips entirely by myself and generally use public transport to explore. :-)

Sankt Peter-Ording: I'm going to Sankt Peter-Ording for a wedding. Where else should I go?

Seville: 4 Days in Seville

There is a Seville​ city pass but, like all such passes, you should check whether you are going to use the majority of its benefits. I have found that city passes are rarely financially worthwhile unless you do so: See More

Rome: Online tickets or tours?

First of all, Rome is in Lazio, not in Tuscany. I'll give info about Florence in a separate post.  Whether you choose to go on a tour is entirely up to you but, personally (and given that many places have both leaflets audioguides... See More

Budapest: Children activities

> the eye (Ferris wheel)-does anyone know if it is open in April?, There is no mention of specific opening or closing dates on the official site: This type of wheel is quite common across Europe. Unless weather conditions... See More
